Won Ton Taquitos ~ Clown Makes Us Proud ~ Sons of Maxwell ~ OJ and Hoagies


Good sunny clear 40º morning. The weatherman said to expect rain/thundershowers today. ?? Wunderground weather just says it will be in the 90ºs tomorrow and partly cloudy all week and cooling to the 70º-80ºs til Wednesday.



So, last night I celebrated Trés de Mayo with baked taquitos ... made with won ton wrappers. First I mixed the drained chicken with salsa and grated cheese. Lay out the wrapper and spread the mixture then roll up. Bake them in a 375º oven for about 15 minutes.

Spray the cookie sheet with cooking spray or use a baking mat.


The dip was avocado, salsa, cumin, salt, pepper, and a dollop of sour cream.
Pretty darned good, and lower in calories than a tortilla.....

BUT you can't call this a Mexican dish, it would have to be Asiacan. BTW.... leftovers for breakfast were awesome!

 

Tonight I'm going to experiment basically the same, but with tortillas. Finding a way to eat them without frying them is interesting. So, tonight's dinner will be celebrating Cuatro de Mayo!

 

Then there is finally a photo of Moochelle that fits! (Thanks Trish!)
 

 
You have probably seen this before... but I think it's great.. Sons of Maxwell (no relation)

Yesterday was the mammo thing, then a trip to Costco. Back to RR and dropped off the old vacuum cleaner to Leah for her friend. Ace for box cutter. Post Office to mail a letter and finally the pharmacy for prescription. Home to happy dogs and a cat who was mad he had to be in the house with the dogs! He took off and didn't come home last night.   :o(


All I know. Tucker was sick last weekend, then Sami came down with basically the same thing and then Brian got it. Trying to find out if Jen is ok and taking Tucker to his baseball game today. Don't know yet. Happy Saturday. Ciao.
