The wife invited her/our pals from SA over tomorrow for lunch; that means, X will be slaving away in the kitchen making enchiladas, Spanish rice, and pintos…along with queso dip, guacamole with chips. The bulk will be made this afternoon.
The wife doesn’t know it yet, but she will be participating in the manufacturing process by grating cheese.
The pintos were overruled and now Ranch Style Beans are on the menu. One less thing for me to do. OK.
I have received acknowledgements from both Energizer and Duracell in compliance of their requests, I shall receive coupons! I am concealing my angst. How’m I doin’?
The sauce is now simmering, and will do so for a couple of hours. After that, will removed lid and allow it to cook down to rid some of the water, and thicken.
The plan is to make the enchiladas, fill the pan, and refrigerate until tomorrow, then bake and top with extra cheese while hot.
I am watching a herd of axis deer that have been frequenting our barnyard the past few days. A buck with a nice rack accompanies the other spikes and does.

I guess I could take it into the local meat market. They claim to do processing, but I am sure it ain’t cheap. Axis deer meat is supposed to be better than the whitetail, and axis deer are much larger than the whitetails; even whitetail buck are small compared to axis does.
The deer are getting up on their hind legs, and eating leaves from the peach tree…probably peaches too, only I don’t think they’re quite ripe yet.
We finished our Mad Men marathon last night. Now to find something else to watch.
I did replace the batteries in the old remote controls for the Sony blu ray, and voila! it worked. I have since replaced the new LG with the old Sony. I like the menus better on the Sony.
It seems the more mistakes I make, I am
