I got the enchiladas made and started toasting them without the sauce.

I like them "thunky" sounding, kind of like a fresh loaf of bread. I'll serve the warmed enchilada sauce on the side.

I haven't decided on whether I will do potatoes or wild rice as our starch. Dessert is also up for consideration. I might do a pie, or another ganache tart. I'll have to see what I feel like baking today.

And I must drive you two nuts! I often post that I'm not sure whats for dinner yet and that I'm looking for ideas. If I ever get the opportunity to start the thread I frequently start with the day of the week, or "Whats for Dinner". I figure we all look in the Today's Menu section to find the current dinner thread. Oops. Sorry you two, I didn't realize that it was bugging others. I think we all have our preferences about how to post this thread, mine is that I like the date written out, "Wednesday December 29". Guess we all have our quirks huh?
Wow what a dinner, Alix. You've got your hands full.

It doesn't bother me at all to know that you don't know what's for dinner yet. I like hearing your {{{{voice}}}}.

I'll be making enchiladas for the very first time within the week. I saw a recipe on a Bobby F show I've been dying to try. So hard finding the ingredients around me, but I got another component today.

I made dinner tonight since Frank drove us home from my sister's place in Illinois last night. Seared NY Strip steaks with a red wine mushroom and shallot sauce, potatoes mashed with buttermilk and dill, and roasted cauliflower drizzled with olive oil and Parmesan cheese.

It was tasty albeit a bit monochromatic, but Frank does not like my original choice of broccoli. I also should have used a bolder red wine for the sauce.

Hope everyone had a great holiday! We definitely enjoyed visiting family.

Dinner was tasty, though I didn't get to use the new knife for anything. :(

Welcome home, Kathleen and Frank. We missed you! Your dinner sounds wonderful.

I didn't feel like cooking tonight so we each made what we wanted. Steve heated up the leftover tamale's, and I had a package of Top Ramen with leftover chicken and broccoli.

Thanks, Kayelle! It was a good trip, but it is good to be home. I missed you all too!

I'd have wrestled someone for leftover tamales! I've not had them in years.
