Black Bean and Tofu Dairy Free Enchiladas with Homemade Sauce

Sometimes I like to get ambitious in my cooking. What that really means is that I want to make something and am missing a key ingredient or two or a whole jar of sauce. Not to be daunted by my lack of jarred enchilada sauce, I searched until I found one I could make and went forward. First off, I do have dried ancho chilies but was in no means prepared to go all authentic. I decided to save that for the weekend and amusingly, chose a sauce listed in the comments in one of the recipes I was looking at. The reason I chose the sauce I did was I had all the ingredients, no tomato paste was used and it seemed like it was a no fail.

There are the enchiladas right before they headed into the oven.

They were fantastic and the sauce pretty much burned had a heat that would make Arizona do a double take. My stomach is like steel, my husband's, not so much. Because of that I would ease up on the amount of chili powder next time, but hands down, this sauce came out superb and now I never have to buy the jarred stuff again.

As for the actual enchiladas, they were very good and I added spinach to mine.

Mexican Red Chili Sauce - I chose to use the recipe posted by Tyson. 8th comment down. But please feel free to use the one by Elise Bauer.

Black Bean and Tofu Dairy Free Enchiladas - Obviously you can throw cheese in these if you like. They were good without it, but I am sure they would be extra gooey and tasty with the cheese.

    Oh I hate weight watchers!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

The No Name Post

Thanks for putting up with my little rant yesterday. Now, even though I am as busy as a bee can be, writing, knitting and setting up the little man's play room, I wanted to share some links for all of you to enjoy.

I just heard about this book, "The Testament of Mary" by Colm Toibin and am intrigued to no end. Will have to add to my 'must read" list.
And this little fabulous ditty out of the UK, Pretty Nostalgic. A magazine that celebrates the "vintage, traditional and sustainable ways of living." Right up my alley.

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe

I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.
