Flag Down/Roof Up! ~ Wild Turkeys ~ Nature of God Video ~ Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Casserole ~ Pigs In A Blanket

Good 44º cloudy drizzly morning.

This I like!!

So, the Toms are out parading ... and between March and May it's mating season. These have got to be some of the dumbest animals I have ever seen.... they pace in front of a fence and have no clue they can fly over it. Then this time of year the Toms are trying to be attractive to the hens, but duh........ Hey Tom, that's a Jake! (A Jake is a young male...)

The wild turkey population here in Ory-gun was depleted years ago so turkeys were brought in from Texas.

Here is a soothing and lovely 4 minute video you might enjoy. I did. Pour a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and sit back. Thanks Mike Cippola for sharing.

Later dinner was a rerun of the yummo pizza, wine, chair, and TV.

Ok, you like enchiladas? How about an enchilada casserole? This one is super and easy.....
Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Casserole:

2 cans (4.25 oz. each) chopped green chiles (mild or hot)
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso green enchilada sauce (or your favorite)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
12 6" corn tortillas, cut into 3/4" strips
3 cups shredded cooked chicken (use a store pre-cooked rotisserie chicken)
1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups (8 oz) shredded Mexican cheese blend
2 large tomatoes, chopped, about 2 cups
 (or a can of drained diced tomatoes with chiles)
2 cups chopped lettuce
1/2 cup sour cream
1. Spray 3-4 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In cooker spread 1 can of green chiles. In bowl, mix remaining can of chiles, soup, enchilada sauce, and mayonnaise.
2. Arrange 1/3 of the tortilla strips over the chiles in the cooker. Top with 1 cup of the chicken, 1/2 cup of the beans, 1/2 cup of the cheese, and 1 cup of the enchilada sauce mixture. Spread to the edges to completely cover the tortilla strips. Repeat layers, reserving the last 1/2 cup of cheese.
3. Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.
4. Top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Cover, cook 5 minutes longer until cheese melts. Serve with tomatoes, lettuce, and sour cream.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

GOOD morning. Before our boys were men, some years the Thanksgiving turkey came from a successful hunting trip.

The enchilada casserole... we used to enjoy quite a bit. That would make a NICE grab as you want dish for this week.

We are all born with a mission in life. Ms Streisand's politics are not my own, but her singing voice and passion for garden perfection... I ignore the rest. Ignoring ignorance is more enjoyable than focusing on smart people who think stupid.

Well, I on the other hand USED to adore BS for her singing voice. Then when I learned what a beotch she is and what she has done politically I refused to ever listen to her again! I don't care about any of her other traits!

Her husband was such a cutie when he was the young doctor on Marcus Welby years ago. Now he is on one of my "can't miss" sit coms, Life In Pieces. He is the patriarch of a funny family and he seems either stupid of drunk all the time! Maybe that's what comes from living with BS all thee years! HA!

When I saw your heading of "pigs in a blanket" I cringed. Black Lives Matter have ruined that once cute little food term for me.
