What are you making for dinner TONIGHT? - Page 6

Bean and Cheese Crockpot Enchilada Casserole

I don't have exact measurements, as I'm a 'throw it together and hope for the best' kind of person.

I layer corn tortillas (spread 3 per layer out), red sauce (canned...I haven't perfected homemade yet), mashed pinto beans, and a handful of cheese. I think I did about 5 layers. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

Sounds easy and yummy! Thanks!

Last night was big salads, homemade whole wheat bread, and homemade cream of tomato soup.

Tonight I am going to do something with salmon, but we only have one piece in the freezer (how'd that happen? ) so maybe a pasta with salmon or a quiche. Hmm. Off to look at recipes!

RiverSky, that sounds AMAZING.

Last night, I cooked. Tuna melts on homemade wheat bread with muenster and a side of grapes. Tasty and quick--that's my cooking style.

Tonight we're doing a little "redneck camping" (my term, my people: we're pitching our tent on turtle's sister's land near a barn she uses for storage) and we're having some sort of Indian-inspired chickpea stew from the crock pot. turtle's putting it together this morning and we'll plug it in when we get there early this afternoon.

Sounds yummy... especially with corn tortillas! Thanks!

Last night was Mexican take-out from our nearby tacqueria, but there was one very interesting thing: a pineapple and coconut tamale. Tasty.

Today we're going to a BBQ

Viking, could you tell me more about those sweet potatoes, please?

It's going to be in the mid-90s here today (unusual for May for us), so turtle cooked yesterday. We're having a friend over for an early afternoon meal of a cold salad of black-eyed peas, rice, onions, celery and carrots, with hard-boiled curried eggs and green and red leaf lettuce and tomato salad.

I suspect there will be photos on her blog sometime tomorrow morning.

Tonight is pasta with pesto and a large salad. Maybe some homemade bread if Marc leaves work early enough for me to get it made.

Sure. It's very simple -- just mashed sweet potatoes (I baked them, but you could prepare any way you like) with butter, some minced chipotles in adobo sauce, a dash of cinnamon, a little salt and pepper. Mash or whip. The sweetness of the potato is nicely contrasted with the hot/smokiness of the peppers. I like my sweet potatoes savory and this is one of my faves. HTH!

Going to a cookout tonight, so I'm not sure what's on the full menu, but I'm making a sweet potato salad (sweet potato chunks and veggies in balsamic vinaigrette, with toasted pecans and fresh herbs).

I'm another one who only likes savory sweet potatoes.

Cooking out at the bonfire tonight... kosher hot dogs for me and things like baked beans, mac & cheese etc.

I like sweet potatoes any ol' way, so I'm going to try both of these. I have a good, easy recipe for cheese ravioli with sweet potato sauce, if either of you are interested.

Had some fabu mango smoothies yesterday--fresh mango, soymilk, ice, a dab of honey and a splash of lime juice. Perfect for the hot weather.

Um, yeah! I've made a s.p. enchilada sauce before, but I'm interested to see this one.

AlsoSarah, I want your recipe too, pretty please?

I don't know what the heck we're having tonight. It might just be boring old salads, since we're pretty low on groceries. Unless I can talk DP into doing the shopping and getting some white hots to grill...hmm...it is Memorial Day, after all...
