Blender Pie!!!

I have this recipe for a Blender Pie that I have made a couple times, it's one of those "I'm in the mood for dessert but have nothing to make an elaborate one".........so you run to the pantry and grab a couple things, literally dump it all in the blender, mix it up and pour it into a pie dish, bake it and VOILA. That's it!!!

This is what I made for dessert tonight. It's SO good, custard like, forms it's own crust on the bottom and top....just YUMMY!!!



BLENDER PIE

4 eggs
1/2 cup flour
6 Tbsp. soft margarine
1 c. flaked coconut (you can leave it out if you wish)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. milk
3/4 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients in blender; blend on high speed until thoroughly mixed. Pour into buttered and floured 10-inch pie pan or oblong dish.


Bake at 350ยบ for 35 to 40 minutes. Test with a knife as for custard. Makes 1 (10-inch) pie.

Menu Plan Monday!!!

Crockpot Enchilada Casserole

I love Mexican food and I love my crockpot, so anytime that I can combine the two it just makes me super happy.

I've made Enchilada Casserole before but not in the crockpot, so I'm eager to see how this one turns out. It smells really good right now and if that's an indication of how it will taste, I think we'll have a winner on our hands.

I plan to make a big salad to go with it. Enjoy!



CROCKPOT ENCHILADA CASSEROLE


1 (14 1/2 ounce) can tomatoes
1 small onion, chopped fine
1 clove garlic, minced fine
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
1 lb ground beef, browned
1 package taco seasoning mix
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
9 corn tortillas


1. Blend tomatoes with onion and garlic in blender.

2. Pour in medium saucepan.

3. Add pepper, salt and tomato paste.

4. Heat until boiling, then simmer 5 to10 minutes.

5. Place 3 tortillas in bottom of crock pot.

6. Layer on tortillas 1/3 of ground beef, 1/3 tomato sauce and 1/3 Cheddar cheese, then 3 more tortillas.

7. Repeat each layer 2 more times, ending with cheese.

8. Cover and cook on low 5 to 6 hours.

9. (I usually go 5 hours to keep beef from overcooking).
