Brisk! I love it. We finally had a cool front move through and it looks like it's going to stick around for a while. So I'm all up in cozy food mode for the next few days. Plus, my family just finalized plans for Thanksgiving this year; I'm hosting, my sister is flying in, my brother and his clan are coming, the Netherlands/Thai neighbor couple are coming for their first-ever American Thanksgiving... Last year it was pandemic, the previous year we went to my friend Debbie's house in Breaux bridge, the year before that I was in treatment for cancer. This is the first time in years I've hosted a big Thanksgiving and I'm beyond excited.

Shrimp or Crawfish Enchiladas

Shrimp or Crawfish Enchiladas

Because the capitol of Texas was in Northwest Louisiana for a while, you find a lot of Mexican-inspired dishes in that area, and this is one of them. It's a dish that takes a little work, but the delicious, creamy end result is worth the effort.

Bolognese Baked Tortellini

Bolognese Baked Tortellini

From the cookbook "Delish", this recipe claims 35 minutes start to finish, but it's more like 45, still meeting my qualifications for a weeknight meal. The tortellini cooks in the sauce in the oven; I'll make this in one of my Lodge 3-quart enameled casseroles, and turns it into a 1-pan meal, even better.
