Move-In Day

Moving day for daughter dear...

Yesterday was move-in day for our youngest daughter and her new husband.  They moved into their new/80 yr. old home.  Another 2 1/2 hour trip to southern OH and we installed another ceiling fan/light fixture.  I must add that during the past week, we did much research on the old style 'knob & tube' type of wiring before committing to this install, but we're confident in the results. They have one bedroom left to go, but they're going to wait and see if they still need a fan after the AC gets installed this week.  

Less than half a year to go til our 'd-day' and it's looking better all the time!  We've tentatively decided that we want to start a pet sitting service and I've begun to do some research about that whole idea.  We've had two different services that we've used here and both are willing to chat with us about the business.  It seems like a good fit for the two of us - particularly if we can partner with another business or two to cover for each other when one is not available.  

Enchilada Casserole for dinner tonight:

1 lb ground beef
small onion, diced
clove garlic, minced
1 T chili powder
1 T vinegar
1 t salt
1 can black or pinto beans, undrained
10 oz can enchilada sauce
8 small (6") flour or corn tortillas
1 can rotelle tomatoes
1 tsp cumin
2 c shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef and drain.  Add onion, garlic, chili powder, vinegar and salt and cook until onion is translucent.

Grease 3 qt oval casserole dish.  Pour 1/4 c of enchilada sauce in bottom and spread  around.  Layer 2 tortillas, 1/3 of meat mixture, 1/3 can of tomatoes, 1/3 tsp of cumin and 1/2 c cheese.  Repeat 2 more times.  Top with last 2 tortillas, remaining enchilada sauce and 1/2 c cheese.  

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes, or until bubbly.  

Serves 6...thinking the kiddos may stop by on their way back to northern OH...
