Lets Get Ready for Cinco De Mayo
If you missed Around the Kitchen Table yesterday my new post for Chicken Enchiladas and Red Enchilada Sauce is up on my blog today.
It includes a printable copy of the recipe along with the video.
 Click Here to see the post: http://goo.gl/EcvTG0

Ingredients
Enchilada Red Sauce
¼ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup all purpose flour ( I used Gluten Free AP)
2 16 ounce cans tomato sauce ( I used organic Muir Glen brand)
3 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon granulated onion
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Chicken Enchiladas
1 cup vegetable oil for frying tortillas
12 corn tortillas (or more)
2 cups pulled or chopped chicken meat (I seasoned mine with the same seasoning used for sauce)
4 ounces queso fresco ( you can sub monterey jack, cheddar or your favorite cheese)
1 cup chopped sweet onion
4 ounces shredded mexican cheese blend ( or monterey jack or cheddar)
Red Enchilada Sauce from recipe above

Instructions
Red Enchilada Sauce
In a saucepan heat vegetable oil over medium heat, then add flour and mix well. Turn down heat slightly and allow flour/oil mixture to cook for a few minutes.
Add tomatoes, chicken stock, spices and brown sugar to saucepan and mix well.
Bring to a slight boil then reduce heat to a simmer and allow to cook for about 10 minutes.
Use sauce for your enchiladas and store the remainder in the refrigerator for up to two weeks or freeze for even longer storage.

Chicken Enchiladas
add vegetable oil to a frying pan and allow oil to get hot
place corn tortillas in hot oil for about 10 seconds on each side, placing on paper towels to drain as you continue the process. Make sure to pat excess oil off of both sides and handle the tortillas gently as they will easily tear.
after all the tortillas have been fried you can begin assembly
place about 2 tablespoons of chicken in each tortilla, along with 1 tablespoon of queso fresco and as much chopped onion as you like.
roll the enchilada up and gently place into a baking dish. Repeat the process until completed.
Once all the enchiladas are in your baking dish, spoon a generous amount of Red Enchilada Sauce over the middle of the enchiladas, then top with shredded cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees and serve with your favorite sides.

Conceal or Reveal: Ask Quaker to Support Mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs

Quaker and its parent company, PepsiCo, are spending millions to prevent us from knowing whether there are GMOs is in our food. Major food companies combined have spent over $100 million on anti-labeling campaigns and their trade association, the GROCERY Manufacturers Association, is supporting a new bill in Congress – The DARK Act – that would prevent mandatory FDA labeling. This new industry-friendly bill will keep consumers in the dark. Unless labeling is mandatory, consumers will not get the information they need to make informed choices.

Quaker, a brand that prides itself on its honest and healthy image, is not being fully transparent to parents, families and consumers across the COUNTRY – marketing their products on trust, but funding anti-labeling efforts at the same time.

JOIN us in asking Quaker to just label it and support mandatory FDA labeling of GMOs.

Meerkat is Finally Available for Android
Meerkat was previously available for Android devices but only via a private beta program. Today’s release means the app is available for all to try out, though it still says its beta.

With the Android app you can now stream video to Twitter, watch other users’ streams and chat with the broadcaster.

Unlike Periscope, Meerkat has no ability to save a livestream (but you can find third-party apps to help with that).

After an unpleasant experience with another area Electrician, I called Terry's. They were courteous and responsive and fixed the issues with my GFI outlet in about 15 minutes and charged a reasonable amount. I will use them for any electrical need that I have.

My appointment was changed twice in one day then cancelled for the next morning. That was changed after I was told someone would be here within an hour. When the technician finally did come in the afternoon almost an hour after the time they gave me he wanted to charge me the $69 fee for the visit and the cost of replacing one GFI outlet of $193. plus tax of course which would have made it almost $300 for one GFI outlet. That seems a bit excessive to me based on all my dealings with Electricians in New Jersey. The other note is that their office is about 1 mile from my home. UPDATE: ACE called this morning to let me know they would wave the dispatch fee. I guess complaining is a good thing. UPDATE: The outlet was easily replace and upon inspection it was verified that it was the only problem. Cost $90

I was thrilled to be invited back into the Chocolate Kitchen to watch as they made some of their amazing chocolate creations. Its plain to see their employees love chocolate and love what they do. This of course translates into their products. I got to try some of their chocolate creations, including chocolate covered bacon, chocolate popcorn, chocolate strawberries, chocolate pretzels, chocolate graham crackers, chocolate oreo's and chocolate covered potato chips and Jami you were right the milk chocolate chips were my favorite! I am looking forward to going back soon to try out some of the Gelato they have at the store. If you love chocolate you want to make sure to put this on your to do list, plus you get to enjoy beautiful downtown Winter Park while your're there!

I was fortunate to find Barnie's coffee after moving from the Philadelphia area, and its been the only coffee I drink since we moved. I use their espresso beans, as well as their house blend decaf, but my favorites are their MIcro Roasts. Whenever I'm in Winter Park I make it a point to stop in and see what new coffees they have available. And I do use their very easy online ordering.
