October 1st: I want to eat warm hearty meals in Autumn colors. Casseroles baked in stoneware dishes with rich sauces. Meat, cream, smoked cheeses, tomato sauce, and, I want the recipe to be fast, and easy, so that I can eat right away. Something that I can make from memory because I've been doing Atkins and I find I instantly become insanely hungry. This recipe takes about 10 minutes to make if I use store bought sauce and rotisserie chicken. It’s for an individual sized portion, perfect for a quick lunch or dinner. Feel free to double or quadruple or whatever is bigger than that if you have a crowd. Smoked mozzarella, really makes this dish shine, but it’s good with regular mozzarella too.

For the sauce, you can use any brand of jarred green salsa (also called tomatillo salsa) that you like (if you’re feeding kids go for a mild version). Buy more tortillas than you’ll need, just in case some break when you’re rolling the enchiladas. I like to serve these enchiladas with these Instant Pot pinto beans!

This simple and satisfying supper is one of the first “proper” meals I cooked for my husband when we got married! I had always been confident with all the egg options (always a go-to for our breakfasts), but I tended to stick to the safety of easy pasta dishes for dinner. So, I got this chicken with veggies recipe from my mom. And we’re still married…coincidence? Perhaps not! Haha! I’d say this recipe marks the beginning of my journey into love - for family, for food, and for cooking. This recipe for chicken with veggies is a similar dish to the chicken and red pepper mix that works so well in chicken fajita recipes - so there’s another serving option for you! We like to have it served simply with basmati rice. It’s a brilliant midweek meal, featuring lots of healthy lean protein as well as plenty of veg, for a really balanced meal. It’s pretty quick and easy, too. You can even enjoy it with rice one night and as the filling for chicken fajitas the next! I love batch cooking, as a great way to make sure my family has plenty of great food to eat through the week, without having to stand at the stove for ages every night.
