It’s still a bit hot, but I have such a taste for chili. I might make it next week even if I have to turn down the AC. 🙂

That must be why I decided to include enchiladas this week. I haven’t made it in ages. I’ll try to remember to take pictures so I can post the recipe in about a week.

Greg has to have meat in his enchiladas but I like mine with spinach or plain cheese. I’ll try to make all three. They freeze really well. If I make a big batch I can save some for later and save myself some work.

Are you a seasonal cook? Do your meals change with the weather or despite it?

  1. I look forward to your enchilada recipe. I try to be a seasonal cook but with the weather so hot here in Phoenix from end of April to end of October, I miss my “winter” recipes so I “suck it up” and use the oven (short baking periods) during this part of summer. What I need to do is cook in bulk in the winter months and freeze the food for the summer months (though I don’t see that happening 🙂


    • Betty: That’s exactly what I do. When the weather cools and we have less to do outside, I’ll make big batches of various meals. I sometimes try to batch cook in the spring, but it’s usually too hot to heat the house all day.
