Be glad to Cheryl..

1/2 bottle of TJ's enchilada sauce
1 cup shredded 3 cheese blend (I used what I had on hand)
1 box frozen chicken Tamalitos (unwrapped) They are little tamale's
1 small can of sliced black olives

In an 8x8 pan, pour half of the sauce and top with the Tamalitos. Top the Tamalitos with more sauce, drained olives and cheese. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
Next time I think I'll mix the enchilada sauce with some sour cream.

Darn good...

It was just right for the two of us

Thank you, Kayelle! It sure does sound good. I love their bottled enchilada sauce, it's the best pre-made sauce I've ever tasted. Will be sure to get that and their tamalitos on my next trip!

You guys are awesome!

We had some grilled pork chops, green beans, and applesauce. I didn't feel like getting too fancy, I had an awful day at work.

the smoked salmon with cucumber slices.

Made a fennel salad (with some celery and marina tomato I had - the flavour variety). Ate a hass avocado first then the baguette and salad. Perfect!
I need some translation What is a marina tomato? And what does "flavor variety" mean?

The underlines are confusing. Are they supposed to be links?

Third try - darn app keeps closing

I went to a master gardener talk on hydrangeas last night so picked up some fried chicken from a local place on the way home. Chicken and hush puppies were good; fries were cold and potato salad had a weird sweet/sour taste. I like Church's Fried Chicken better.

These tomatoes (the delicatessen called them "marina"). Buy flavour variety I was just describing them as tomatoes that had real, authentic flavour.

Sorry about the underlining...it was just my way for someone to quickly scan the post for the main ingredients. Since they don't have the special blue font link look, I thought it was understood that they are not links.

Now I'm hungry for some yummy tomatoes

I'm a former web technologies manager and website designer; links can be any color, but people are conditioned to see underlines as links. You could use bold to make certain text stand out. I often use asterisks, *like this*.
