First, Black Bean Enchiladas, then Sesame Chicken with Lo Mein and Green Beans
That’s right--two recipes! Two fan-tab-u-lous recipes that I found in Menu Magazine, put out quarterly by Wegmans supermarkets (located in the Northeast U.S.). I had never tried their recipes before and was finally ready to take the plunge.
Am I glad I did! I can’t tell you yet which is my favorite of these two. I love them both. And I love the fact that I have the recipes in print with pictures in the Menu Magazine, plus I can go online and find the menus, with videos, at Wegmans.
The videos really bring it all together for me. I mean, I love to read (and look at pictures!), but then after I have everything purchased and assembled, nothing beats a video to show how easy it really is to assemble these two dishes.
BLACK BEAN ENCHILADAS
Changes I made or would make ~ None! Fantastic as is. At first I thought this was a very expensive, cheese-laden dish, but then realized it made A LOT! Two big pans, one for supper and one for the freezer (which I used a few weeks later at a potluck dinner where it received rave reviews).
SESAME CHICKEN WITH LO MEIN AND GREEN BEANS
Changes I made or would make ~ Too many noodles (they recommend the 1-pound package of frozen lo mein noodles). The second time I made this, I bought an 8-ounce box of dried noodles. Forgot it would double when I cooked it--ha, ha--so again I had way too much. I added half and froze the rest for the next time I make it. Even with half the noodles, it’s a huge amount of food. Filled my wok.
I discovered recently that my blog settings for Comments were incorrect and only allowed registered users to comment. Oh, no! I want everyone to be able to comment, even anonymously, if you want.
The settings are changed so, please, speak up. I would love to hear your opinions on the blog and the recipes. If you make any of the foods, let me know what worked for you and what didn’t.
