Recipes of the Week

I occasionally fix something super delicious that is worthy of sharing with my friends. This recipe was requested often enough that when I made it this week I thought, "I should share this awesomeness with all my blog readers!" So…for the two of you that I haven't given this to yet, please enjoy!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

2 chicken breasts

2 Tbsp butter

2 Tbsp flour

1 cup milk

8 oz. light sour cream

Whole wheat tortillas


Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded

Boil chicken breasts and set aside to cool. Melt butter in a small sauce pan. Add flour, then slowly whisk in milk. Continue stirring until the mixtures comes to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside to thicken. While that is cooling, shred the chicken. Whisk sour cream in to the white sauce.

Spray a 9x9 or other small casserole dish a begin layering. Tear pieces of whole wheat tortillas, chicken, salsa, sauce, and cheese. I usually make 2 layers, ending with tortillas and cheese on top. Bake @ 350 for 15-20 until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbling.

This makes enough for me and a friend with some leftovers. I would double everything to make a family-sized portion.

Tracy's Recipe for Procrastination

The following may or may not be based on real life experiences. ;)

To do: Read and respond to two current events articles and two journal articles.

Check email while watching TV. Decide to take a one hour nap to increase potential energy later in the evening. Wake up. Eat a snack while fixing dinner. Clean off desk to use as a workspace. Eat dinner while watching TV. Organize supplies needed to complete the work. Check email again. Adjust light and temperature settings. Begin working. Review numerous articles in an attempt to find the perfect one. Wander into the other room to find a resource that was left behind. Semi-finish two of the responses. Decide to bake cookies. Set out cookie dough. Empty dishwasher. Wash every dish in the house. Put cookies in oven. Read some more articles. Stop reading to eat cookies. Finish reading articles. Write some more. Realize that it's getting late. Decide to stop working for the night and get ready for bed.

Still to do: Finish four responses. <sigh>
