Yes, we are ranchers.
Yes, we raise beef.
Yes, we have a freezer filled with ranch raised beef.
Yes, we sometimes eat chicken.
Once, during one of our cow works, our girl came in to get another syringe and said, " Don, wants to know what your fixin for dinner".
I replied, "Chicken enchiladas".
When she came in to wash up for dinner, just ahead of the rest of the crew, she said, "Don says you're not supporting the beef industry".
So I whipped up a beef burrito and stuck a toothpick in the middle of it with a sign that said, "Proudly supporting the beef industry" and put it at his place setting. He ate the burrito and the chicken enchiladas, and we laughed about it. He's such a dear man.
This is what was for dinner yesterday, but don't tell Don:
It's not even really a recipe, but one of the gals who lived at North Camp with her husband gave this to me years ago, and we love it. I think her recipe called for green onions in place of the green chile, but we put green chile in just about everything around here.
I season some chicken and brown it on the stovetop. Then I add sliced mushrooms, chopped bacon, NM green chile, and some grated cheese. Let that cook for about 5 minutes and you are good to go. I added a salad and some roasted red potatoes and dinner was served.
On the menu tomorrow: BEEF :) I should invite Don.
