Enchilada Flats

Fork it. Fork it all. Finger foods are constantly my go-to, first-choice, comfort food. Sometimes, changing things up can be chaotically forking comforting.

The one thing I would’ve done differently, is baking the Tortillas ahead of time to avoid soggy Tortillas.

And nothing cheers up soggy Tortillas than Vegan Enchilada Flats.

Blackened Corn was the beginning. After that, Boca crumbles, Tofu crumbles, Garlic, Peppers, Onion, Ghost Pepper Sauce, Sea Salt, Pepper, Chipotle Powder and Paprika. Cilantro was stirred in very last.

The Enchilada Sauce was as simple as Tomato Sauce, diced Tomatoes, Sugar, Sea Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Oregano, Garlic & Onion Powder, Parsley and diced Jalapeños.

These awesome ingredients were layered Sauce, precut Tortilla, Daiya and repeat.

Happy Wednesday

Yesterday was a fun-filled awesome day. With some lows and some extreme highs. I awoke at 4:00am thinking that I was late for my 6:30am shift. At 5:45am and around 25 degrees F, I commuted via bicycle to work. Dressing in various layers, the commute was absolutely comfortable.

The sun was present throughout the day. Being a sunshine addict, I suited up after my shift (without all of the layers) for a beautiful November day and rode on to enjoy a few hours of remaining daylight. After picking up a 4-pack of beer, I ventured to a wildlife refugee before heading to a brewhouse for a few more amazing beers.

Fall into Winter months are progressively dying, cold and dreary. Utilization of warmer//brighter days is a must, in my book. Overcoming the cold and the death is essential to becoming stronger and prepared for any further difficult situations.

It is game time. Here in the midwest, the next five months will not be pleasant. Optimism and drive will get me through.

Washing dishes is one of my least favorite things to do. A bagged coleslaw mix literally was my mixing bowl for this concept. The mixture included diced Green Peppers, Tomato, Onion, Coleslaw mix, French Dressing, Vegenaise, Sunflower Seeds and SeaSalt/Pepper.

Lavash Bread is amazing and extremely versatile. Lavash Bread was lined peppered Tofurky slices, the Coleslaw mix and then rolled up to served cut in half with a Good Beer or three:)
