The Perfect Homemade Meal

(in our humble opinions)

Chips and salsa and guacamole. (Salsa made by Gaby Robbins what what! Guac made by j&k)

Spanish rice. Easy, fast and delicious.

Jalapeno creamed corn. Dangerously good.

Okay, so we don’t have a picture of the main course because we kind of forgot to take the picture and then ate it all. Haha. But here’s the deal:Β Angela’s awesome enchilada recipe.Β Do it and you will not regret it.

Ohhh December 18, 2012. 2011* JillandKate blog again and reiterate their deep love for mexican food.

Until tomorrow.


*we got ahead of ourselves. It’s still 2011. Phew.

    Present! (finally)

    For the record, if a miracle happens (depending on what view you have on the subject πŸ™‚ ), and you don’t hear from me during any of the “31 Days of Blogging”, it’s probably because I am having major technical difficulties connecting to the Internet. But I’m here now, ready for tonight’s novel.

    Any *one* of those items above could prolly serve as a full dinner for me, and I’d prolly be perfectly happy with it, so this must have been some dinner. Sounds perfect to me, so no complaints on calling it the perfect homemade meal from my end. Then again, I’m the type of person who has been known to be perfectly happy with school cafeteria food, camp food, jaill food (don’t ask), etc., so maybe I’m not the best person to be writing expert opinion novels on a food-related blog. πŸ™‚

    My favorite was checking out the enchilada recipe and, as always, the writer of the recipe makes it sound like it’s the easiest thing in the world to throw together in a pinch with ingredients you have hanging around the kitchen. LOL Yeah, well, speak for urself, there, Angela! We culinarily challenged types typically don’t have stuff like “chopped green chilis” and “can of enchalada sauce” on hand at all times. LOL. But kidding aside, once all the ingredients and equipment are available, I think cooking can be loads of fun *on occasion* (let’s not get carried away here, folks), and this really did seem like a great recipe to try.

    My philosphy on cooking is a lot like my philosophy on dressing. It’s good to do some nice cooking or nice dressing for the benefit of somebody else (a significant other) on occasion, but the main reason you do it should prolly be for yourself — because you truly enjoy doing these things. If you don’t really enjoy cooking or dressing nicely and are doing these things on a daily basis to satisfy somebody else’s demands, I’m not sure that’s the basis for a great relationship, but what do I know? After all, I’m just “a middle-aged single person with whacked conspiracy notions”, as I was so blatantly reminded on twitter the other day (and gawd bless twitter for not letting a person lose themselves too much to overly dramatic pompous soliloquy before being brought back to earthly reality — oh, to be or not to be…) LOL

    Along these lines, I read in a girlie magazine (Cosmopolitan?) once that you can tell a lot about how a guy will be in bed by his tastes in food. For example:

    “Waiter, this cordone bleu should have precisely 150 grains of salt in it, but I distinctly detect 151. Please return it to the chef in disgust.”
    = run for the hills, ladies — he’s a horrible lover in bed.


    “My idea of a gourmet meal is to pop open a can of Chef Boyardee Ravioli and eat it from the can cold.”
    = nab him up instantly, ladies — this is the guy you want in bed with you!

    (Okay, so I *may* have embellished a little because I don’t remember the exact details of the article — after all it was about 25 years ago I read this — but I remember the gist of the article, and I definitely remember Chef Boyardee Ravioli being mentioned specifically — gotta admit that’s a pretty tough image to forget πŸ™‚ ).

    Anyway, unless this happened to be a paid advertisment for Chef Boyardee (no! does that really happen in magazine articles?!), I’d say, from my limited experience and as your unofficial, official love guru, this *might* be pretty darn good advice. πŸ™‚

    Love Mexican!! But you just made a whole year go by!!! Future bloging lol

  6. Miriam Says:

    Y’all are hilarious. But really, YUM! And you cannot blog about guac, and not share the recipe! I expect an update with it…please?

    Also, we can’t skip to Dec 2012…I mean, we could, but how was Feb 23rd? Awesome, right? (And because I doubt y’all know it by heart, that’s the date y’all play ATL with KC and the Sunshine Band…)

  7. Selena Says:

    You two do love your salsa. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Gaby’s! Looks like y’all did a fine job with the rest of the meal.

    Can I get y’all to let me skip ahead to a certain date since J&K have developed the power to control time now? Haha! Just kidding! πŸ˜›
