Enchilada Casserole

    This was lunch today.  Enchilada Casserole from the Jan/Feb Cooking Light.  It was really good.  Both chickies helped with the prep, so it actually only took about 30 minutes total.  This would be a great company dish as it also has great plate presence.  The layers held up really well.  I didn't make this as healthy as the recipe suggests though.  I have found that reduced sodium anything is not well accepted in my family.  I did however top it with plain Greek yogurt and used ground venison instead of beef, both low in fat.  Next time I will add black beans I think and serve it with a salad. Both would make the plate a little more pretty.  

    I've thrown myself into cooking lately to avoid the furniture moving craziness.  So far it has worked.  Tomorrow we will have company for dinner, so I've selected another recipe from Cooking Light, I'll let you know how it comes out.  I've also discovered that Myah has mad chopping and dicing skills.  She executes every cutting task with extreme precision, she's like a little food engineer.  She likes a very organized work station as well, which has been good for me because I'm a very unorganized, messy cook.  She's helped me to slow down and enjoy the process more.  It also helps to have time, nothing to rush off to, then there is time to enjoy the meal and everyone can help pitch in on the clean-up.
