Summertime Eating with the Papa

I have spent a good amount of time with Daddy and Abuelito so far this summer and that makes me very happy. The beginning of June I took over as nurse for Papa after his knee surgery and fed him lots of fresh meals! This one shown here was our first al fresco meal at the Jarrettsville house in a LONG time. Me and Laurita had fun setting it up.


Go for the jump to see the Father’s Day meal and other fun pictures!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

June 25, 2012 at 7:42 pm | Posted in Dinner, Entertainment | Leave a comment

Easy Chicken enchiladas is right! Or I could call this post food Elizabeth actually eats during the week.   So yup, I got home from a weekend full of grandma & mommy time and good girlfriend time and had time to prep this for the oven for tonight!  I paired it with sauteed kale, the vegetable that I have been eating with dinner for the past three months! And boy was it nice eating outside tonight. Soooo breezy and beautiful here in Frederick.


Super easy- whatever tortillas you like, whatever shredded cheese you like, two cans of enchilada sauce (green and medium for me), plus shredded rotisserie chicken, sauteed with a white onion, can of diced green chiles, 6 sliced up olives. I layered up all of those ingredients and heated it at 350 for 30 minutes! Ahh I love food for a week. It’s really cause I’m lazy after work… So what else is going on?? Our sweet baby Lils had an achievement today!! Walked 4 steps in a row!!! YAYYAYAYAYAYA.

And that’s about it. I’m excited to eat at Family Meal sometime this week! Hope ya’ll had a good Monday.

Lilly’s Crazy Awesome Pink and Green First Birthday Party

June 22, 2012 at 11:13 pm | Posted in Dessert, Dinner, Entertainment, Lunch | 6 Comments

Well hello there world! Now that I have finished four seasons of Mad Men, been through some nice long weekends in Long Island, Jarrettsville and DC, I am feeling reset. Alot of things are in flux right now, but I’d say in a month there might be a new normal to my life and I am so excited. So where were we when I last left off? Oh excited to see Lilly. It always comes back to Lilly. I am so lucky to have an adorable blond baby that recognizes me on the facetime and exclaims “Hi!” I spent four solid days with that baby, and the best moments? Icing the cookies you will see below and having her hang out next to me while she played with a reusable shopping bag full of random kitchen utensils. Kids are so amused by simple things! Reminds me of my childhood and the refrigerator boxes and houses built under the forsythia bushes.


See? Balloons. Pink and green polka dotted balloons nonetheless. But simple beautifully deflated balloons. You might sense a theme here… pink and green! And I continued that theme in my dear sweet Lilly’s birthday present. A pink and green Lilly dress! It fit her perfectly and she wore it the day of the party. I was mondo happy.


So go for the jump to see the insane amount of pink and green things that were included in the celebration and the insane amount of work and detail that Jana and I did that day!
