I have a couple low-brow vs. high-brow chicken dishes to share with you today!

The low-brow is a super easy Chicken Enchilada dish that includes bacon and a creamy ranch sauce. It’s perfect for those ranch fiends in your life (we all have them)! Sean loves an enchilada and he was crazy for this version. It’s savory, a little spicy, cheesy, and so easy. The high-brow is a Slow Cooker Chicken with Apple and Crème Fraîche that includes my favorite cooking booze–calvados. It’s creamy, herbal, hearty, a little sweet, a lot savory, and perfectly autumnal. I’ve made this several times already this fall. The most important thing is that they are equally delicious. Win.

Happy (late) Wednesday, frens!

How’s the spookiest week of the year going for you? My mom is in town all week! and we’ve been eating just a ton of delicious things and hanging out with Casper-man. It’s been pretty fun and super nice to have some extra hands and eyes around, especially since Sean has to go take a class in Seattle this week on some sort of “cold-weather-geo-dirt-civil-building-stuff” (technical terms, y’all) so he can snag jobs for his company in Alaska (no we are NOT moving to Alaska)…mostly it’s stuff I don’t 100% understand, except that he’ll be gone for 5 days and we’re totes gonna miss him. On Friday we plan on staying in and hopefully some Trick-or-Treaters will stop by because we are handing out full-size candy bars and I just don’t need that sort of temptation in my face after Halloween.

I’m just popping by to share two recent recipes up on Betty Crocker: Make-Ahead Turkey and Bean Freezer Burritos and Cheesy Brown Rice, Broccoli, and Chicken Casserole. Both are equally delicious in different ways. Sean’s a burrito guy through-and-through, so these were a huge hit in the house for quick lunches. The casserole took some talking up–since he thinks he doesn’t like casserole (he’s wrong, for the record) but the leftovers ended up being devoured within 2 days, so you be the judge.
