We are having our Florida Christmas dinner at our grandaughter's tonight so the only thing I know that is on the menu is what I'm bringing, baked apples. She is a good but adverturous cook so we will all be surprised. I hadn't made baked apples in 25 years so I'm surprised she asked me.

Homemade beef, bean and cheese enchiladas (topped with sauce, shredded 4 cheese blend, scallions and broken black olives), homemade mexican rice (jasmine rice, chopped tomato, scallions, chopped chilies, chicken broth, chopped onions and cumin) and refried beans.





This was my first attempt at these recipes and the family said it tasted better than the mexican restaurant!!

Buffalo chicken pizza, chicken wings and finger veggies. Too tired to do more than that.

We're having Swiss Steak cooked along with potatoes, carrots and brussels sprouts. I love those one dish meals.

DH is working so I can actually get into the kitchen today. I made ham steaks with pineapple rings and home fries for Dad and I.

Sort-of spaghetti a la puttanesca but it turned out WAY too salty.

I have a single-serv coconut cream pie chilling in the fridge for later.

Finally smothered that chicken! Put up a fight, too. LOTS of sauted onions, green pepper and mushrooms (that was our "vegetable") and enough mozz cheese to give a heart attack! Enough left over so I don't have to cook tomorrow before our party.

Just leave it out. Here is a link to the recipe that I used as a base. Yes,Divas Can Cook: Bourbon Chicken I did use bourbon in mine and I added some corn starch slurry to give a thicker sauce.
