I'm so glad you stopped by today. Ever since I was asked to do this recipe column on MomSaves.com I've been searching my files for recipes I thought you would like.

Even though I'm retired now, I try to keep busy. I have bridge club two afternoons a week, volunteer at the hospital on Mondays, teach a Sunday School class and do substitute teaching when I can fit it into my schedule. Can't see myself sitting around knitting in a rocking chair. I did try to learn how to knit one time - ended up with a very crooked pot holder - but that's another story.

Since I'm out and around most days I don't have time for complicated recipes with exotic ingredients. I prefer quick and easy recipes. Here's one I think you'll like.

Easy Enchiladas

My daughter and grandchildren came over for lunch on Sunday and we made these. They are
SO EASY to make
and taste wonderful!

Ingredients:

1 pound ground chuck
1 small onion, chopped
1 (10 3/4 oz.) can tomato soup, undiluted
1 (10 oz.) can mild enchilada sauce
8 (7 or 8 inch) flour tortillas
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
Sour cream (optional)
Sliced black olives (optional)

Instructions:

Cook beef and onion in large skillet over medium-high heat until meat is browned, stirring until it crumbles, drain and return to skillet.

Stir soup and enchilada sauce into meat mixture. Spread 1/4 cup meat mixture onto each tortilla then sprinkle cheese over meat mixture (use about 1/2 of cheese for this). Roll up tortillas; place seam side down in a greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Pour remaining meat mixture over tortillas.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese; bake 5 more minutes or until cheese melts. Serve with sour cream and olives, if desired. Yield: 4 servings.

Household Tips
Having trouble opening those "easy-open" jars? Try putting on
rubber gloves or wrapping a rubber band around the lid.
 
Use less cooking oil. When you buy a new bottle don't remove the bottle seal - simply poke a few holes in it with a sharp knife. You will be surprised at how much longer it lasts.
Cut SOS pads in half before using them. Two halves will last longer than one whole plus the steel wool will sharpen your scissors.
 
Frustrated by the adhesive left when you remove labels or stickers from glass? You can quickly remove it adding a little peanut butter to a damp cloth and rubbing the spot. Wipe off adhesive and pb with another part of the cloth. Works great!
 
New way to cook spaghetti.
Bring water to a boil then turn off burner. Add dry spaghetti, cover and let it set the as long as the directions say to cook it. Spaghetti will be cooked perfectly and won't stick together.
 
Does your leftover salad get yucky when stored in the refrigerator? Put it in a storage container and cover with a paper towel. Put lid on and store upside-down in the refrigerator. This is fantastic - salad stays fresh much longer. If you take some out replace the paper towel before
re-storing in the fridge.
 
Pick a perfect honeydew melon. According to Produce Pete from WNBC - New York you should look for a golden glow, freckles and a sticky feel - "that's the sugar coming through!" he says.
