From My Friend Peggy G.

Peggy Gordon, my friend from Carson City NV says this recipe is soooo good.  And it certainly sounds very good. Shall we all try it together?

Chicken Enchiladas

4 cups cooked chopped or cubed chicken
8 oz. cream cheese
1 medium onion (chopped)
1 T butter
2 cups whipping cream
8 oz. pkg 4-cheese Mexican blend
A small can green chilies
8 flour tortillas
Melt butter. Sauté onion in melted butter for 5 minutes.  Add green chilies, cook for one more minute.  Add chicken and cream cheese until melted/blended.  Spoon 2-3 spoons into middle of tortillas.  Roll up and place seam-side down in lightly greased 9x13 pan.  Spread Mexican-blend cheese on top.  Drizzle whipping cream on top of cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Let sit for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Pleasant Rainy Day

The Brookers Four went to the movie Avatar in McAllen yesterday. We had to go to McAllen to see it if we wanted 3-D viewing. Jason had assured us that we did and he was right. It would have been a good movie on its own but the 3-D made it special. We followed up the movie with a meal at Fuddrucker's. It was excellent. Butch and I shared a crispy chicken salad and were reminded of our friends Don and Marilyn Scott with whom we had first experienced Fuddruckers and sharing one of their humongous salads. We topped off our meal with ice cream at the Dairy Queen in Alamo. We know  so many good places to eat in the valley and there are still many more left to try.
We are having our own experience of an icky winter. We do not have the cold, snow and ice to contend with but we are being denied the warm balmy temperatures and the usually  clear and sunny skies. Many people didn't bring enough cold weather clothes with them and so frequent laundry loads and wearing the same three outfits is an unexpected part of their life in sunny south Texas this winter. Oh well...this too shall pass.
