Quickie Friday: Asparagus Salad with Gorgonzola Vinaigrette

This is another recipe that I made back at Easter (oh, so long ago) but it was too delicious to leave on the kitchen floor.

(1)  Sam's Club sells THE BEST "artisinal lettuce."  I'm not kidding.
(2)  Blanched asparagus is delicious
(3)  Mixing 1 & 2 with a vinaigrette of red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and gorgonzola yields THE BEST light salad.

That is all.

Oh wait, no it's not.

I almost forgot that this blog is about food AND shoes.  I need a vacation.

Baked Chicken Taquitos

Have a mentioned things have been crazy?


But I can't leave you hanging for much longer, peeps, so I present to you baked chicken taquitos.

Preheat the oven to 350 and combine the following:

4 cooked, shredded chicken breasts,
6 oz. softened cream cheese,
4 oz. shredded Mexican blend cheese
half a jar of jalapenos
1 can rotel (I used the super spicy stuff)
white pepper, cayenne, chili powder, salt, and cumin to taste

I piled my "stuffing" onto a small corn tortilla, rolled it up, placed it on my baking sheet and baked them for about 20 minutes.

The results were cracked and crispy and totally delicious, if not particularly lovely to look upon.

Unlike these.

These are lovely.

So, basically, this is me lately.

Traveling, a promotion, being ill, the H quitting his job, EVERYTHING has me a little overwhelmed.

So I'll back back.

Next week.

I promise.
