Coleslaw

I love coleslaw, it’s one of my favorite ways to pretend I’m being healthy =p

This is my moms recipe, it will make quite a bit of salad, which I never find to be a problem, but if you don’t have the fridge space, you might want to do a half recipe at a time =) If you do a whole recipe, you’ll need a really big bowl!

Coleslaw

1 cabbage
4-6 carrots
1-2 cups of raisins
1 tsp white vinegar
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup sugar

I don’t have a food processor big enough for a cabbage, so I just chop up the cabbage with a large knife, first into quarters so it doesn’t all fall off the board while I’m working =p

After chopping up the cabbage, grate the carrots and put the cabbage, carrots and raisins in the big bowl.  Mix the vinegar, mayo and sugar together, then mix it into the veggies.

Seal up and refrigerate any that you don’t eat right away =)

Green picante enchiladas

My mom sent me this, and I wish I was close enough to go grab some!

Green Picante Cheese Enchiladas

6 eight inch flour tortillas
29 ounce can of Picante hot green enchilada sauce
1 1/2 pounds of grated cheese
1 can of black olives
2 green onions, chopped

 

Pour a little enchilada sauce into baking dish to coat bottom of dish.

Put one pound of grated cheese into bowl and pour in enough sauce to make it wet, but not runny.

Coat a flour tortilla in sauce and then add about 3 – 4 tablespoons of the cheese mixture into center of tortilla and then roll up.

Repeat with all the tortillas.

Lay them side by side in an ovenproof dish.

Pour the remaining 1/2 pound of grated cheese over enchiladas.

Top with a can of drained and sliced black olives, and a couple of chopped green onions.

 

Bake for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Enjoy!

Banana Bread

This is my mom’s banana bread, both a great way to use bananas that are going brown, and a great breakfast or indulgence food.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole

This one is my mom’s, one of my favorite cold-weather foods, a great lunch leftover, and if you’re making something bigger, can be a great side-dish.  This one makes a large quantity, but could easily be halved if you don’t have that many mouths to feed or just want to try it out.

I will add a pic once I make it again.
