Chicken Enchiladas

Hello, Monday, we meet again.  My weekends are always far too short when I find myself working Saturdays.  Happy news is – only one more Saturday shift before I’m officially on maternity leave!  Yay!

First things first: How about them Packers!?  I only bothered to watch the first half (42-ZERO at half!?).  At that point, I honestly started to feel bad for the Bears coach.  Poor guy.  I’ll never feel bad for Cutler, though.


So, after working Saturday morning, the afternoon was spent at Costco and Woodman’s in preparation of an evening in the kitchen.  That’s right, this mama finally got around to making some freezer meals!  This family won’t be going hungry once our little boy makes his appearance.  I’m anxious to see how they end up tasting.

But, before we find ourselves resorting to freezer meals, I’m doing my best to prepare fresh dinners.  If I’m honest, last week was an utter failure on that front.  I aim to make dinner 4 nights during the week – but last week, I managed to get one homemade dinner in.  And it was a roast in the crock pot.  Embarrassing!  But, I had something Tuesday-Thursday that kept me from taking that time.

These enchiladas are the creation of a college acquaintance.  They’re quick, easy, and delicious!  I need to keep the quick and easy part front of mind the next time I find myself thinking I don’t have the time to make a homemade dinner!
