Yesterday I made 'sour cream & chicken enchilades' from the AU cookidoo.  It has high ratings so thought I'd give it a go.  Makes a lot as you use 10 tortillas.  Was good to use up some chicken tenders and a breast from the freezer to make up the amount needed.

It looked really good and I cut a corner off to try it and thought it was really tasty, surprised really.  DH loved it.  I've divided it up now into 2 tortilla serves.  Will make again.

I served with RTE's pasta salad that I've made numerous times.  It's very much like what you buy in supermarkets in the ready to go section. The recipe makes heaps and I freeze in 2 serving size.  Used normal macaroni this time as I'd run out of elbow.

Just a note, I discovered a really tasty cheese that caught my eye and was my first time trying.  I used it in the enchilada meal. It's Coles home brand 'Red Leicester'.

If there is one thing I really miss it is cheese ... because DH is lactose intolerant I rarely buy cheese, but I love it melted over food or a toasted cheese sandwich ... having said that, with your recommendation, I might just sneak down to Coles and buy a small block of that Red Leicester and treat myself.

Julie your meal looks delicious.

Lamb chops again tonight with chips and mixed veg.  Stewed apricots for dessert.

Staff Xmas party at our place last night ... catered for, thankfully, but I ordered way too much food.  I gave everyone doggy bags but we still have enough food to keep us going for days!!!

Yum JulieO. I love Red Leicester cheese but haven't tried the Coles one. I will do so, maybe after Christmas, as I would eat too much of it.

We are having Tandoori chicken with rice and fresh asparagus and Naan.

I was quite taken with it Cookie, thought it had a lot of flavour.  So many cheddar cheeses are quite bland.
