Ladies and Gents! Guess what I’m doing today?? I’m already shakin’ at the knees. There’s butterflies in my stomach, too. Hopefully I won’t faint…

Today, I am going to my first parent/teacher conference!! OH MY GOD! I finally feel like an adult! With CHILDREN!

You know, I will flip if she tells me something I don’t wanna hear. Or I’ll just turn really, really red. I mean, Ana is only in Kindergarten – what is there to tell me?

No, seriously. I know many of you have gone through this thing – what is she going to tell me?!? I wanna be prepared.

I’m also bringing cake with me… I’mma butter her up first, then I will let her talk.

In more exciting, all-about-me news, I finally got a new laptop. YAY ME!

It’s so weird how you think you have a wonderful piece of metal with a shiny, colorful screen that is SO pretty and SO the best until you buy a new one and realize, HOLY CRAP, my old one is AWFUL!
I can’t believe the difference! And before you go thinking that I was working on a Commodore 64, let me clarify – it was a Commodore 78. 😉
Nah, it was an HP, just like my new one, but boy did they upgrade! GO HP!

Oooops… Did you come here to talk about chicken? OK. Aaaaand are you looking for a creative way to use leftover chicken? OK, great!

You know my tricks around here. Gimme chicken, gimme potatoes and we’re game!

Somewhere in the middle of that Crock Pot White Chicken Chili and those Skillet Burritos, I found myself craving something Mexicanish. Not sure what I wanted, but I knew I wanted some Southwestern flavors. A quick scan of leftovers led me to creating this deliciousness that we truly could not get enough of.

This Chicken Enchilada Potato Casserole is the juiciest, most flavorful casserole on the ever of ever. I have a 2 year old that loves to sop up everything with bread, and that is exactly what she did as soon as the rest of us left the dinner table. She kept going and going… Red sauce all over her mouth, shirt, pants… thank goodness for water.

Settle yourself into a nice and cozy apron, shred thy chicken and get on this. I think you’ll love it!

Happy Friday!

ENJOY!

  1. I just went to my kid’s parent/teacher conferences recently too… it’s so exciting to see what they have been up to at school. 🙂

    I can totally get behind this potato casserole too… my hubby and kids would love it. 🙂

  2. Bringing cake to the Parent/teacher conference is SUCH a good idea! I always tell my husband, when he is applying for jobs, to write “wife is food blogger, I bring extra” on his resume.
    No one turns down food.
    Oh, and this casserole? Potatoes and enchiladas?! GIMME THAT! Pinned!

  3. This sounds WONDERFUL! I lOVE it! Great mix of two great meals here! Pinning right now 🙂

    GOOD LUCK at parent teacher conference, I bet that is a big step, but an exciting one 🙂
