|A roast pork and baked potato meal.|
What we didn't have for our casserole were any cans of tomato sauce or tomato paste to make an enchilada sauce. This is where the creative part came in, we used the only tomato product we had on hand, ketchup, and it worked like a charm. I now know that by just thinning ketchup with water and adding chili powder, cumin and garlic powder you can make a darn good enchilada sauce.
Using what we have and turning it into something new and delicious is the part of cooking I love most. It's a fun challenge for me.
After we served the enchilada casserole, we moved onto roast pork and baked potatoes which were also very popular.
Louise, one of our regular guests said to me "Heidi, I have a complaint about the baked potato. There wasn't enough of it."
There is just something so comforting about a hot baked potato cut open and topped with real butter. It was very good medicine for the miserable weather.
We served 252 meals today.
