Sarah’s Ridiculous Chicken Enchiladas

I have to give a quick shout out to Sarah from My family and I are planning a trip to Disney World next winter, and in effort to brainwash my kids with Disney magic (and to make sure they don’t freak out around giant characters in-person), I’ve been putting on YouTube Disney World “Vlog” videos in conjunction with legit Disney movies, which is how we stumbled across her YouTube channel, Table of 6. We also (heart) Charlotte from “LilMissChickas” and her recent Disney videos, but I’m sorry, Charlotte, today we’re focusing on Sarah and her ridiculous recipe for Chicken Enchiladas with White Sauce.

Ridiculous? Ridiculously easy and amazing.

I’ve been having my 3-year-old help me with dinner prep, which has helped expand her tiny culinary world beyond a diet of scrambled eggs, Gerber EVERYTHING, and lunchmeat.

In this recipe, she was able to help me shred chicken, dump cheese, stir sauce, and feast on tortillas while I assembled the goods.

Long story short, my 3-year-old ate the enchiladas that she was able to help prepare.

I won’t do the recipe justice here, but she’s done all the hard work for you (me) at this link– or better yet, view her in action here:

I will say that we added a packet of Sazon seasoning to the filling, and next time I’ll have Sister add green onions or spinach to the filling as well, or maybe bang it out with some crockpot chicken + Rotel.

Rarely do I cook from a book or recipe, so I would say this is a great jumping-off point for someone who is learning to cook without the book and put their own spin on something.

Anyway, I would encourage anyone on the fence to try these immediately.

Sarah, if you’re out there, you’re awesome and my daughter thinks you’re Barbie. She also asks me to give her “Miley hair.” I suppose that could really reference any number of styles but the meltdown is usually averted by adding a bow.

So tell me, who are some of your favorite “YouTubers” out there? Did your kids ever freak out (fearfully) of a giant character at Disney? If not, how did you avoid it?

Enjoy, guys!

5 Reasons I Fired My Daycare

Daycare is both a blessing and a necessary evil. While most of us would love the opportunity to raise our children in the home before school age, many parents work outside the home or have obligations that prevent that from happening. On the other hand, it’s a great way for your child to socialize with her peers, learn to function in a structured environment, and to be exposed to new experiences that they would otherwise might not have been until starting school.

I made the difficult decision to withdraw my child from daycare. Here are 5 of the biggest reasons! [Full post]

Champagne Floats for the Classy Broad

After the kids are in bed, what better way to gussy up a cheap bottle of bubbles than by making these Champagne Floats! Classy Broads only!

My kids love when their “Aunt Pies” visits! She often makes the 2.5 hour car trip to spend time with us, followed by a luxurious night’s sleep on a couch that could fall apart at any moment.

Once the Littles hit the rack, happy hour begins for the big girls! And because it’s a celebration when “Pies” comes, we break out the bubbles! Although I can get behind even the cheapest bottle of Prosecco or Champagne “straight-up”, we’ve stepped up our game with these Champagne Floats!

Hacked! Banana Bread Pancakes

I love some banana bread, but I think these are even more amazing! Great for back-to-school breakfast without sticky fingers, and perfect for grazing throughout the day!

If you’ve ever overestimated your toddler’s seemingly insatiable hunger for bananas, you’ve probably ended up with more than a few squishy bananas in your possession.

I love banana bread as much as the next girl, but I dislike heating up the house with the oven, am too impatient wanting it out of the pan, and have a severe aversion to doing dishes- especially those with baked on messes. [Calgon, take me away!]

Going Big: Humble Pie, Back to School Edition

The journey of a mom returning to school, equal parts exciting and terrifying.

Monday morning I had a big ole’ slice of humble pie for breakfast and trekked over to the admissions office at my local community college. Not only did I have my documentation of epic failures (read: transcripts) in-hand, but I also brought my confession that I did not “get” the online application process.

A fine start for an aspiring teacher. [Full post]
