Pie Crazy! and other meals.

The pie was such a hit!! I heated it up a few seconds and served with vanilla ice cream. This week's dessert is going to be a white chocolate raspberry cheesecake.

Isn't it pretty?? Make sure to check out the link so you can see how she made the pretty hearts. If this works out I am going to make it again when Matt's parents come in town. They are coming the weekend before Valentine's day and if I remember correctly Don likes cheesecake. Looking forward to seeing how mine turns out.

Last night I made the cheesy chicken enchiladas that's going around Pinterest right now. The recipe called for only a few ingredients which was good but there were a few labor intense steps that I didn't plan for. Shredding chicken and the steps that lead to it are the worst. I had to first flattening the chicken out a little bit with the ole meat mallet. I made sure to cover it in wax paper so chicken juice (gagggg) wouldn't fly. It was my least favorite thing to do and I won't be doing it again for a while. Then I boiled the chicken and shredded it. I gathered the rest of the ingredients and realized that the cheese I got was a block and not a bag already shredded... so, more work... ahh. I got it all done and in the oven and pulled it out minutes after Matt got home from work. It all worked out. I paired it with a simple salad because I was over being in the kitchen at the point. All in all it was tasty and relatively easy so I'll cook it again and just pre cook my chicken so I'm not forced to be in the kitchen that long. Matt really liked it and insisted that it go straight to the recipe box. 
Tonight's menu is monterey chicken and parm encrusted asparagus. Updates to come! 
Yesterday was spent catching up on laundry. Our dryer is the pits! It takes almost 2 hours to dry one load of clothes. Also the exhaust or whatever goes into the bathroom, so it was hot too! Laundry will officially be a daily thing. Yuck. Oh well. Today I have to run to the grocery store to get some things and I am really weighing whether to go to the Commissary again and save a little money or hit the Farm Fresh right across the street. hmm. Okay everyone I'll update with the dinner verdict. xoxo :)
