Weekly Menu for 2-9-14 and White Enchiladas plus a bonus Polenta Recipe

Last week kind of saw much of what I planned get dumped for other ideas. Sometimes what sounds good on Sunday doesn’t sound good on Thursday, so it gets changed. What I like to do is those weeks is roll all those changes over into the next week. Half my menu was planned because of this. Which was awesome!

By the way if you see a item you want the recipe for let me know so I can make sure to write it up for a blog one week. Or even if you are looking for a recipe let me know, I might have one or know of one. Everyone needs resources beyond cookbooks. Let me know. I shall respond.

Sunday Mom’s Birthday – Orange and maple game hens, wild rice, and roasted asparagus, Cherry pie.
Monday – Oops fell asleep…. Turkey for enchiladas and leftovers
Tuesday – Balsamic beef, mashed potatoes, and roasted asparagus
Wednesday -Turkey Enchiladas
Thursday – Costco
Friday – Easy night, thinking turkey burgers
Saturday – Polenta and sausage casserole

This enchilada recipe came from Pinterest and is still very popular on that site. Its easy to make and makes good use of leftover chicken or turkey. If using leftover meat you don’t have to cook anything but the actual enchiladas. This is in the regular rotation and is on Dad’s favorite list. And right about this time is when I find out we do not have any tortillas. Um yeah…..Its been one of those week. I shut a cupboard and went to latch it and the latch came off.

White Enchiladas
Cooked chicken or turkey
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 small can chilis about 2 ounces, more if you want
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove garlic chopped
Cheese Monterrey jack or cheddar or pepper jack or any combo of.(I use whatever I have around.)

Mix Broth, sour cream, chilis, and garlic in bowl. Pour a 1/2 of it into a baking pan. Dip tortillas in sauce fill with turkey and some cheese, roll and place in baking dish. Repeat until done. Pour rest of sauce on top. Pop into a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Put rest of cheese on top and bake for 15 minutes, Serve with shredded lettuce and tomatoes.

Bonus recipe with picture. Polenta is an easy side dish. We have it soft the first time and baked for side later in the week. I made a huge batch so I can make polenta casserole.

6 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups polenta
1 to 2 cups grated parmesan (optional)
2 to 4 tablespoons butter
Bring water to boil and whisk in polenta. Turn down heat before it spits at you. Stir regularly and cook for 20 minutes. Add Butter in the last 5 minutes. In the last two minutes add cheese and stir in. If it keeps spitting lower the heat. I cook this on low heat.

When I acquire some tortillas and make this I’ll get a picture of those yummy enchiladas up.
