I finally made my Chinese chicken lettuce wraps again on Friday. I made them once last summer when I posted the recipe, then again about a week later. And hadn’t made them since. What was I thinking?! These are so yummy, and this time I chopped up and added about a half a can of water chestnuts.
Anyways, it kind of got me thinking about how long it’s been since I made some of my favorite recipes. So I decided it was time to revisit a few …
First up, enchilada lasagna, or “enchilasagna” as Joel took to calling it. And it really had been a long time since I’ve made it. So long that I forgot the ingredient that holds the lasagna together and that makes it enchilasanga – enchilada sauce. Whoops. Next time I make it (correctly) I’ll post the recipe. Even without the sauce, this was delicious. Especially with the oversized scoop of guacamole I had with mine
Another old friend was this summer salad. My sister and I are both fans of the movie I Love You, Man where the best night ever includes summer salad and Chocolat (the movie, but maybe some chocolate, too). A couple of years ago, when planning our own best night ever, I envisioned a summer salad with cucumber and tomatoes and basil. Instead, she wanted strawberries, walnuts, and goat cheese. I think of strawberries as a spring food, but I will not argue logistics. This is one of my all time favorite salads – I’ve eaten it three nights in a row this week and am not sick of it yet.
I have another old favorite planned for dinner tonight – tortilla soup. The last time I can remember making it was summer of 2008.
Do you have any old favorite recipes you haven’t made in a while? Dust them off and make them again – just don’t forget the enchilada sauce.
