Appeal for Peace at OWS Events

      We fully support proponents of Occupy Wall Street. Peace officers by definition are peaceful, right? In God We Trust:

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
 
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
… where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

 

Fabulous Enchiladas

Dateline: North America

     Just thinking about this dinner recipe…

It would be a crowd pleaser for tonight’s opening of the “World Serious.”

Kelly’s Fabulous Chicken Enchiladas

     Kelly is well known for quickly preparing a homecooked meal for two dozen or more. Her main course’s chicken enchilada recipe has some American Indian origins.

     Chief Joseph made the Nez Perce Tribe very respectable during their years in the Columbia River Plateau. The Chief likely never had it this good.

    Imagine a complete spread:

  • Fresh chicken enchiladas
  • Refried (Rosarita) Beans
  • Spanish Rice
  • Arugula Green Tossed Salad
Arugula Green Tossed Salad

       The salad (Arrugula Ensalada Verde) included huevos duros, pimientos amarillos, pimientos verdes, British cucumber, cebolla Bermuda, and tomatos cotudos entrozos.

    Kelly first boiled over 40 chicken thighs until tender in spiced water. Corn and flour tortillas were defrosted, beans were placed in a double boiler, and rice was steamed after being gently fried.

“Iron Chef” Kelly

    To make the chicken enchiladas, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare fried tortillas
