The Golden Globes and Chicken Enchiladas Take Two

Monday, January 14, 2013

Some how between Saturday and Sunday I got a very busy Monday planned for myself. So today will be a little recap of the two highlights of my weekend. First up are the chicken enchiladas that I made. Every year Fisher and I make chicken enchiladas to feast on while watching the Golden Globes (he is a movie buff like his mama). Last year I used a yummy recipe that I found on pinterest. This year I used a recipe from Lauren over at Still Plus Life and, sorry pinterest Enchiladas while those were some tasty enchiladas, Laurens are better, like way better! So fresh and light, yet rich and tasty, yum. M+L helped me shuck the tomatillos and don't worry about the dirty nails, we washed them and boiled them before they became sauce ; ) Luca especially loves to cook and he absolutely loves his veggies. I never thought I would be saying "take a couple bites of your macaoni and cheese before you can have anymore brocoli" but I say some variation of that everyday. In fact last night he cried and cried because he didn't have any carrots on his dinner plate. If he could he would only eat fruits and veggies for every meal. It's weird but the good kind of weird, I think. Though he is gluten intolerant (so that's rice macaroni and cheese I try to get him to eat) with that sometimes I worry he has other food issues and why he likes to stick to only the fruits and veggies.

Did anyone else watch the Golden Globes? I couldn't believe I had actually seen a lot of the movies this year. I was excited Quinten Tarantino won for best original screenplay because Django was by far the most orignal and one of my favorite movies this year. Claire Danes was my favorite best dressed but I think it also has something to do with her personality. She just exudes this fantastic mix of normalcy and classiness. My runners up would be Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lawrence (how tiny is her waist, sheesh!). And when did Ben Affleck get so dapper? Any favorites for the best dressed (or worst dressed)?

PS Laurens blog seems to be on the fritz as I write this so I will link to that yummy recipe as soon as it's back up. I highly recommend taking a look and maybe even making a batch of your own.


  1. I'm with you on Claire Danes. She can do absolutely no wrong, and I'm so happy she and Damien Lewis won for Homeland. Mandy Patinkin was robbed, but that's just my personal opinion. I've been slacking on seeing movies this year, I need to go see Argo, Lincoln, Les Mis, and Silver Linings Playbook, stat!

    1. homeland is so good! at first i kept thinking "do i really like this show?" then i realized it was the one show i looked forward to more than any other - they are both crazy good actors. i love saul in it too (whatever his real name is). i need to see three out of the four that you want to see too. i didn't even know about the last one until i looked up the nominee list.

  2. I didn't watch it...but I'll check out the E Channel tonight & wait for Fashion Police! I bet ur enchiladas are super yummy....

  3. Yum chicken enchiladas are some of my favourites. I did make a squash enchilada dish for Xmas that turned out well for those veggie lovers in your family. And yes, I think it's wonderful that your boy is all about his fruits and veggies. I need to be much more like Luca

  4. I would have loved to watch the Golden Globes but due to the time difference I would have had to stay up all night...


  5. Jessica Alba was my favourite - she looked stunning and I loved both the style and amazing colour of her dress.

  6. The recipe sounds yummy. Of course I watched the Golden Globes (never miss the ceremony, nor the Oscars, although our local time is 3 a.m.) I'm blogging about it tomorrow, so I'll just say that I jumped for joy when Argo won for best movie and Ben Affleck for best director. As for the gowns, Naomi Watts was my favourite.

  7. Oh I'm bummed to have missed the Golden Globes. But these enchiladas sound like they are not to be missed! Also, I love hearing when the little ones like foods that most don't (like veggies or sushi), maybe it's because I know what a horrible eater I was as kid (I like to know that there's hope!)

  8. Yum Enchiladas! I didn't watch the Golden Globes, I am not a big fan of award shows but I love the red carpet fashion. Still need to catch up on that but on first glance I really liked Julianna Margulies lace dress.

  9. well that sounds super delicious and a great way to watch the golden globes!

    love from the NANA girls xoxo

  10. Those enchiladas sound good! I've never watched the Golden Globes as I don't own a television and when I was growing up we only had one channel. But everyone seems to get really into it. I might have to invite myself to a GG party next year.

  11. My dear friend! Thank you so much for your sweet comments about those yummy enchiladas. I'm so glad you liked them! I'm sorry we were on the blitz when you tried to like to us (should be back now), and I'm sorry I haven't been here to thank you for your kind words sooner. I know you understand. XO
