third time is the charm

31 Oct

Batter up!

I have made some misses lately.
I love trying recipes from blogs that I follow. It makes me feel slightly less guilty for spending hours of my day reading about soups, stews, and crockpots. But as tasty as a recipe might look online, it isn’t always so tasty…
Strike One:

Strike one was this Butternut Shells recipe from How Sweet It Is. I have tried so many recipes that she has made, mostly because of the pictures. Pictures always get me. Many of the recipes I tried were great…this one not so much. I must just be a Mac & Cheese purist, because this was just blah. And while it was just blah the first day, well it definitely didn’t make it as a leftovers option. In fact, I might just not be a big fan of butternut squash- as much as I want to be.

Strike Two:

Was entirely my fault. I grew impatient and didn’t let the potatoes cook long enough ( womp, womp). Granted they were about 3/4 of the way done, so it didn’t bother me too much, but it was a huge no go for the hubsters.And I now have a half full crockpot of potato soup to clean out tonight.

But here comes the game changer.
This chicken enchiladas recipe from Annie’s Eats. It was easy, it was tasty, and it was adaptable. I strained the tomatoes and onions out of mine for the hub and it came out great!

Homerun!

Happy Halloween!
