Jen, as you know, I get your postings sent to me via email (which I am glad you allow us that option!).
I found it very interesting that both you and The Pioneer Women posted recipes for Enchilada's today! I do believe it's a sign. I have only made them a couple of times..... I now believe it is time to try them yet again o;-p

Reading over the two different recipes, I think I shall combine them to some extent, and see what I come up with. I need to go add some ingredients to this weeks grocery list ...

We have falling snow and below freezing wind chills here - how are you currently faring?
