Nolen made his guacamole this afternoon, and we knew that we wouldn’t be able to hold out, so I decided to make some easy chicken enchiladas for dinner to accompany the delicious dip. That way we could get some chips and dip in our mouths ASAP but not feel bad since it was part of a meal (instead of a snack).
There’s a seafood market in Fayetteville that carries some of the best catfish fillets I’ve had. They also carry more exotic items like shark, but that’s another story. These perfectly-sized catfish fillets come out tender and flavorful every time. I apologize in advance for not having some shots of the actual cooking process (I didn’t set out to post about this) — they looked so good I had to post it!
After watching some Food Network (or was it Man vs Food?) a few weekends ago, I started thinking of things I could stuff inside a hamburger. My first go at it is quite unoriginal, but it works quite well! Babybel cheese is exactly the right size and shape for an easy, uneventful stuffing session. I use the light Babybel cheeses — only 50 calories per wheel!
There used to be a restaurant around here called Big Guy’s Subs that I frequented for lunch. My favorite sandwich there was the rock star; aside from the sheer joy of ordering a “12-inch rock star”, this sandwich just had a killer flavor. Apparently no one else thought so, however, because the shop closed a while back.
Of course, once you’ve had a 12-inch rock star, there’s no going back. It was spicy, savory, and had a fresh bread with seasoning baked into it. I’m too
lazyefficient to bake my own specialty breads for single meals, but I think I’ve come up an incredible facsimile. Girls love it, at least.
