Pulled Pork Enchilada Verde Casserole

It was once again time for the Thursday meal for our friends and since I had pulled pork from my recent BBQ cook, a big pack of corn tortillas from the local maker, and have been wanting Mexican, enchiladas made the most sense.  I’ve learned after several months that casserole type dishes work best for delivery so I decided on an enchilada casserole.

I did not find a single recipe that I liked, so after reading several to get a sense of the proportions they used, I came up with the one below.

My First Brisket On The Grill

 If you follow my blog regularly, you know, I have recently been barbecuing meat on my grill, which is equipped with a smoker box, and I decided it was finally time to try a beef brisket – the most difficult cut of meat to get right.  And since I was cooking, I decided to do a pork butt just to have some pulled pork on hand.  And since I was cooking the pork, Bev wanted me to wrap it in banana leaves ala Hawaiian Luau.

I used my normal pork rub and harvested a couple of big leaves from our hardy banana to wrap it with.

A Few Recent Meals

For meal one, we had several green tomatoes we needed to use and opted to make a green tomato BLT since we love BLT’s, we love fried green tomatoes and we often see them on menus.  We used the recipefrom Meatwave, homemade bread, and Benton’s bacon.  The first shot shows my bread ready with mayo (Duke’s), bacon, lettuce, and colby jack cheese and it’s followed by two views after the deep fried tomatoes were added.

Cajun Shrimp and Linguine

I like to make Cajun/Creole meals more often than I do and when Mary posted the recipefor Cajun Shrimp and Linguine on her Deep South Dish, I quickly saved it.  I made a few changes to the recipe but it is primarily as she made it – my changes this time are in orange and I show changes I'll make next time - you can see Mary's original by clicking on the above link.

Ham, Broccoli, and Mushroom Quiche - Delicious

Sorry about the print color - don't know what's going on.

When Bev made her tomato pie the other day, she made a double crust recipe and had enough left for a quiche so I combined a recipe from For The Love Of Cooking and Spicy Southern Kitchen plus Bev added mushrooms to get the recipe below.

Homemade Dill Pickles

We don’t eat a lot of dill pickles but we prefer the garlic dills we make ourselves using a particular variety of cucumbers (name unknown) that we get from the Englewood Amish Market.

Individual Tomato Pies

I don’t know why, but we haven’t made these in years and they are outrageously good.  The recipe comes from the Roseville B&B in Marshall, TX but I don’t have a link for it.
