Green Chili Enchiladas

Ingredients for the green chili: tomatillos, onion, garlic, roasted green chilies. I got them at the end of the season, some are red, from a guy in the parking lot of the bowling alley, roasted on the spot. I simple bagged them and put them in the freezer. I clean them as I use them.

I lightly fried the corn tortillas, dipped them in the green chili, filled with leftover short ribs (tow hich I added cumin and chili powder) and some cheese.

... and placed them in the baking dish.

I added cheddar cheese halfway through.

I cooked Anaszi beans in the slowcooker with smoked turkey leg stock. Then put some in the frying pan with cumin and a bit of the green chili.

Simmered until thick.


Oatmeal Pancakes

3/4 cup quick oats
1 cup flour (I use Wheat Montana White, it would be great with their Prairie Gold, but I didn't have it on hand)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup coconut sugar (I think next time I'll use less, they browned rather quickly with that much sugar)
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
3/4 cup milk (approximately)

Stir together dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another. Then combine. I let it sit on the counter a bit until it was bubbly.

Lemon Blueberry Sticky Rolls

I made a dough with flour, milk, butter, Meyer lemon infused olive oil, sugar, salt, and egg.
I love using my new Kitchenaid Pro; it makes bread making so much easier!
I spread butter and the lemon oil on the dough, I rolled it out after letting it rise.
Then, I spread a mixture of sugar, lemon juice, lemon and lime zest, corn syrup, and honey over the butter and oil.
Then added blueberries. I used a combination of fresh and frozen.
Roll it up, slice, and place in a baking dish. I oiled the pan with the lemon olive oil. I let them rise for about 30 minutes.
I baked it at about 360F, for about 40 minutes, until golden on top. Then, I poured a lemon glaze over the top while warm. For the glaze, I mixed together powdered sugar, lemon juice, a bit of orange juice, and more lemon olive oil.
