All Grown Up Striped Slouch Hat

All Grown Up Striped Slouch Hat
Moogly reader Brea recently came up with the brilliant idea of making a slouchy hat to match the All Grown Up Arm Warmers – and she was kind enough to let me run with it! And with or without the Arm Warmers, I think the All Grown Up Striped Slouch Hat is a keeper! Of course, the All Grown Up Arm Warmers are sized for adults – if you’re making the smaller size of this slouch hat for a tween, you’ll want to use the Sweet Striped Crochet Arm Warmers to complete the set!

Cheesy Chicken and Bean Enchiladas - Thinkarete I am a BIG fan of enchiladas. Especially cheesy chicken enchiladas topped with my homemade enchilada sauce. I even snuck some refried beans into the mix for a little addition to the vegetable garden. No one will argue that these are super authentic. These would work really well as a freezer meal. Start these out by seasoning a few BIG chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, and onion powder. After the chicken has browned, I added about 1/2 cup of water into the bottom of the pan and covered the pan to finish the cooking. When the chicken is cooked through, shred it thoroughly. Now make your refried beans. Roll them up well and place into a pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray, and has been covered with enchilada sauce. Cover these with your enchilada sauce. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the whole thing is heated through.

Easy Enchilada Sauce - Thinkarete This is my go-to enchilada sauce for all my various enchilada dishes. I love red enchilada sauce, but I cannot stand the stuff you find in the tin cans in the ethnic section of your local grocery store. This sauce is delicious, easy, and doesn’t require any crazy specialty ingredients. You can adjust the heat to your family’s preference. Saute the garlic in the vegetable oil for 1 minute over medium high heat. Reduce heat to low, and simmer stirring frequently for 15-20 minutes. Easy Enchilada Sauce • 1 TBSP Vegetable Oil • 2 cloves garlic, crushed • ½ tsp oregano • ½ tsp basil • 1 TBSP chile powder • ⅛ tsp black pepper • ¼ tsp salt • ¼ tsp cumin • ¼ cup salsa • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes 1.

Authentic Navajo Tacos Recipe My Grandpa had some really good friends that he lived by that were descendants of the Navajo Indian Tribe. They shared with him one of their authentic Navajo Fry Bread Recipes and it has been a family favorite of ours for years. If you have not had a Navajo Taco before, you might want to give them a try. We don’t eat them very often because we are trying to move away from fried foods, but when we make them…the kids have been known to give an energetic arm pump accompanied by a “YES! Forgive the terrible lighting…and the unappetizing photos…it takes some real talent to take great food photography shots and apparently I have a few things to learn. Navajo Tacos Fry Bread Recipe 1 cup flour 1 tsp baking powder 1/4 cup powdered milk 1/4 t salt warm water Combine the ingredients and slowly add enough warm water to form a dough.
