Haiku that Blog! v1.05 Pandapple Edition

>> Thursday, February 4, 2010

It's time for the fifth installment of Haiku that Blog!

This month we will be creating word art celebrating The Sporadic Cook. Nadia was the winner of Haiku that Blog v1.04 way back when but unfortunately she's gone MIA and so I've made the executive decision to pick on Julie 'cause I lurve her and I think you will too and also because it's my blog and I do whatever I want.

Here's what you have to do to have your own blog immortalized in verse -AND- win a cool prize.

1. write a haiku about Julie and/or her blog
2. post it in the comments on this post
3. wait to see if you win

Easy huh?

What do you mean you don't know how to write a haiku? Haven't you people heard of Wikipedia?

The winner will receive their very own Pandapple bento box, drink bottle suitable for sneaking adult beverages into work and a matching lunch bag! Wooohooo! The winner will also have the option of having their very. own. blog. featured in the the next edition of Haiku That Blog! If the winner does not have their very. own. blog. they will be strongly encouraged to start one. Failing that, the winner will be allowed to choose the next blog to be featured.

Entries will be accepted until midnight or so February 14,2010. Winner will be chosen by a panel of people and or animals who live at or are visiting or walking past my house. (Unless I decide to do a voting thing but since I've been meaning to look into the logistics of that for like 2 years and it hasn't happened yet it probably ain't gonna happen this time either.) Prize package worth less than $25. Anonymous entries have the proverbial snowball's chance in hell of winning, so please help me find you. Now get Haikuing!

Pandapple: 50%animal, 50%fruit, 117% awesome! Crappy picture though, sorry about that.


Green Chili Chicken Ehn-chih-LAH-dahs

>> Tuesday, February 2, 2010

I'm in love with my enchiladas. You know why? It's because they have BEANS in them, black beans, and CORN and not very much cheese. If my enchiladas were human they'd totally be my new boyfriend.

Now and Later Green Chicken Chili Chicken Enchiladas

2 chicken breasts about 12 ounces each, poached and diced (or use rotisserie chicken)
1 can of black beans rinsed (I prefer Goya brand)
1 bag of frozen corn
1 small white onion finely minced
1 can diced green chilis
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups of shredded cheese (I usually use 1/2 jack and 1/2 cheddar)
2 packages corn tortillas (24) total
2 19 ounce cans of green enchilada sauce (Las Palmas is the best)

This recipe makes 3 loaf pans of 8 enchiladas each. We eat one, save one for leftovers and freeze one.

Open 1 can of the enchilada sauce and divide it evenly between the 3 pans. Pour the other can into a mixing bowl. In another bowl mix the chicken, beans, corn, onion, chilis, half of the cheese and the salt.

Dip each tortilla in the enchilada sauce to coat on both sides before filling with about 2 generous tablespoons of the chicken mixture.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly over the three pans and pour the remaining sauce from the bowl over the pan you wish to freeze. Cover that pan tightly and freeze for up to a month.

Cook the other two in a pre-heated 325 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until the edges of the tortillas start to brown and the sauce is bubbly. The frozen enchiladas will cook in about 60 minutes at 325 degrees.

Top with sour cream, diced tomatos and cilantro leaves.
