Chicken Tamale Casserole

daisi - February 26, 2012

I love getting recommendations of blogs to follow through other great blogs. It’s like book recommendations or something, they’re always better when you know the source suggesting them. That is how I came to find the elefantitas alegres blog. Although, I can’t recall which blog introduced me, I have been a loyal follower for quite a while now. Kate does menu recaps pretty often and I …

Turns out, that under the griddle a grease fire had started. EEK. Luckily we were able to contain it and smother it. A little excitement for Sunday morning!

I fell behind on my menu recaps for one week. The only thing I cooked the first week of the year was chili. So there really wasn’t anything to “recap” – I did share the recipe so that counts right? I also “cooked” a pie last week, that I shared with you on Monday: PDub’s Mocha Silk Pie. We did make it out for dinner …

And it was so good that after said girls’ night, a friend has since …
