The last several days have been pretty much indescribable.
There is a lot of sadness watching my mother fail a little every day, and a lot of stress trying to take care of her.
But then on the other hand, there is joy. Pure, unbridled JOY.
Still taking it a day at a time. Dealing with "what is".
I threw together some crock pot enchiladas, that I just had to share with you.
I started with a recipe I had bookmarked, but soon got a little crazy and did my own thing.
Crock Pot Enchiladas-A Variation.
First I sauteed a green pepper and a large onion, both diced. Then I added soy crumbles.
Smart Ground (Mexican style) by Lightlife.
But if you eat meat, you can add hamburger.
I browned these all together. Then I poured in (1) 21 oz can of Bush's Grilled Beans, Texas Ranchero style.....drained.
I put two wheat tortillas overlapped on the bottom of my crock pot.
I then put 1/4 of the bean mixture on top of the tortillas, and then 1/4 of an 8 oz bag of shredded Colby cheese.
I repeated this a total of 4 times.
Then I poured one can of enchilada sauce over the whole thing.
Two helpings later, he said, "don't change that recipe in ANY WAY".
That's a thumbs up, for sure.
As much as I've had on my plate, and as much as I have facing me, I am still hopeful.
That's the power of a positive attitude. Sometimes I don't know where it comes from, but I think I'll keep it.
