|Beef Enchilada Casserole with Tomato-Avocado Salad|
Watercolour and Ink
Here I am cooking Beef Enchilada Casserole with Tomato-Avocado Salad that I got from Sandy Richard's book Life's On Fire: Cooking for the Rushed.
I highly recommend any of Sandy's books, but this one is my all-time favourite. It was her first book and I found it spoke to me. I have given it as gifts over the years. It is no longer available or in print with no reprints scheduled. However, if you come across it on a discount shelf or through eBay, I strongly suggest you pick it up.
If you are wondering, I often wear disposable rubber gloves when I cook, especially if I have to chop onions or handle garlic, or if I have to touch meat. The rubber gloves are an extra layer of protection for my hands and for the food. It keeps my hands from getting smelly and from meat getting stuck under my nails. The gloves are easier to rinse off than my bare hands. And, it keeps food from getting cross-contaminated (such as raw meat particles getting on the vegetables). I use separate cutting boards and knives as well.
