Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas
I followed the recipe to a "T" and they came out great. I was asked for the recipe, and praised often for this one. O.K. so, it almost seemed as if the author, bless their heart, was trying to think of extra steps as I went along following the recipe. For instance, why simmer the chicken with the enchilada stew mixture and then have to dig it out? Well, I did it according to the recipe, all I can figure is that the acidity of the tomato mixture helps to break down the chicken to make it shred up real nicely. I bought hatch red chile enchilada sauce, the hot version, and they were still not hotter than they should be. The only thing I would try differently, though I did it the way the recipe said to do it, would be to try making it with the corn tortillas in oil instead of heavy cream, only to save a little money on a step that might be uneccesary. If you want them to turn out perfect though, follow the recipe the first time and then do what you want after everyone tells you what a wonderful cook that you are. Yummilicious!

Vegan Mexican Stew
Father, forgive me, I used chicken broth and added chicken parts, I could hear them clucking in protest the whole time... cluck cluck, cluck! It was great! A major hit. A mexican man where I held the function came out of the warehouse and meekly approached me and asked me what it was I was cooking. When I told him, he quietly told me that he came out because it smelled like his grand-mama's house when she would make menudo. He seemed really moved by the whole thing. I have to say this is a wonderful soup, I had to keep adding liquid as I went because it can tend to steam off, and it just continued to get better and better. Make a batch and put it in the fridge, you'll have something delicious and hearty to eat all week!

Mom's Cucumber Salad
Oh boy! This is good! We just hit our first day over 100 degrees yesterday, so I wanted to start doing summer cool recipes. This will be a hit all summer. I was afraid of the sugar, seemed like too much, but I like to be true to a recipe for the first time, and it worked really nicely. I couldnt find my white vinegar so I used rice vinegar (then found the white) and it also worked very well. There is something about the combination of cool cucmber and the salty sweet dressing that makes you want to have more. I kept taking sneak bites before I could put it in the fridge to cool. I wouldnt do anything different, Yum!
