Last night was vegetable enchilada night. Yum… love this meal. I found the recipe online at Perry’s Plate. Of course, like all of my cooking, I had to adapt a bit and experiment. This meal turned out really well especially when compared to Wednesday’s sort of disastrous eggplant.
Vegetable Enchilada’s are not what I would traditionally call an enchilada. This meal reminded me more of my mother’s taco pie that we all love.
What really attracted me to the recipe was all of the bright colors… doesn’t it just look good?
Anyway, we followed the recipe for the most part… I didn’t use oil and I made two other substitutions. One substitution was using a low fat cheese instead of a regular chees. And, the second was to use a whole wheat / high fiber tortilla instead of corn tortillas.
I definitely plan on making this meal again and if I do… I will make a few more substitutions. I don’t really see the need for the sweet potato. It didn’t seem to add any value… I’d definitely up some of the other vegetables instead (cauliflower, red pepper, onion, spinach and corn). I’d also add in some green peppers and probably a few jalapenos.
Overall, though, this was definitely a success and it is fun to find a recipe that is a keeper! I’ll let you know how it goes when we start further adapting it.
I ended up staying up too late again last night. GRRRR… I am not sure why this is such a challenge for me this week. And, of course, when I do this I end up munching all night on food that isn’t great for me. This cycle has got to stop!
I’ve been doing so well in other areas which makes it even more depressing. I’ve been eating throughout the day, exercising well, eating good / more normal dinners, etc.
Anyway, I am starting to try and figure out how to make this cycle stop and so that I can break this pattern. My current idea is trying to find a good book. If I can get myself away from the TV earlier and go to bed with a book maybe that will help? I used to love to read… in fact, I still do like to read. I just stopped for some reason and I don’t really know why. So, perhaps a trip to the library will be a must for the weekend. Any ideas? How do you stop a rut and start a new routine?
