    Diary of a Non-Cook: Easy Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas

    Sour Cream, don’t judge me! The checker at Safeway sure did. It didn’t help that he was Mexican and a self-prescribed cook of his household. He saw the ingredients and said, “oooh, enchiladas!” To which I replied yes, but made the fatal mistake of telling him I was making “Easy Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas,” to which he gave me a pretty gnarly look and laughed. He then questioned baking sour cream and told me, “good luck with that!” What a nice fella! What he doesn’t know is that I’m just a girl trying to get better in the kitchen. I still follow recipes to a ‘T’ and I’m okay with…

    Rose & Thorn [34]

    Another weekend closer to Napa.. Rose: The infamous Bacon Burger from the Grange! Thorn: My heart… Sorry, this post is most likely going to lack my normal, grit and humor. The case of Monday’s has reared it’s ugly head… Friday  Another Friday Family Date Night after we picked up L. Again, we stayed in Folsom to avoid any traffic on the way home. Originally we had planned to eat at a local salad spot, but then J changed his mind and we ended up at a Hawaiian themed Chili’s, otherwise know as Islanders (I think). I’d been to this chain once, but never to this location. I didn’t really want…

    Five Things Friday – 5×5

    No I’m not referencing what I ordered at In-n-Out… Thanks, Clare! But it does total my favorite number of my favorite athlete. Random (SF Giants) tangent, sorry. But here are 25 random things, grouped by 5’s, that went on in Week de Ganeeban (eek, I just third personed myself)!   5 Things that Made Me Happy This Week: 1. October Baseball – We’re on our way to the post season, see my post from yesterday! 2. Footy – Being on the pitch, after what seems like forever. I think its been 3 or 4 weeks since I’ve had a touch on the ball. I was a little off this week,…

    WIAW – That good, good!

    Goodness that I found on my iPhone… Thanks, Jenn! I didn’t pick a day or even have one to use for a typical WIAW post, so I thought I’d brag about some delicious food I’ve eaten in the last week or so (and pics that haven’t been posted on the blog already). Also, I thought I’d share what a non-food-planner buys when they are conveniently at Whole Foods. My work has new hire meet and greets donut parties and I love them. If they didn’t serve donuts, I’m not sure how many people would show up. Someone always tries to save me my beloved maple bar, this time was no…

    5 Things Friday

    Literally, just five today! Thanks, Clare! Just keeping it short and sweet for you! Seems fitting, so I’m going with it… 1. State Fair – If you should be so lucky to have your State Fair in your city, then you know what I’m talking about. All things Carnie’s and fried goodness attack you at some point during your trip! Luckily the #CAStateFair has it all – from Carnie headquarters (the Midway), to the ever so popular Hypnotist, to all things fried and unhealthy, to air conditioned buildings that are stalls on stalls of infomercials brought to life, to the secret wine garden, to all types of stinky animals for…
