Celebrating Life

Today we celebrate Thea Mary’s 91st birthday!  Thea Mary is one of my Yaya’s best friends and continues to be a part of our family’s gatherings.  So, today we honor her…


Last year for Thea Mary’s 90th, Mother honored her with a birthday luncheon!


Mother’s table was set beautifully!


Everything was delicious!

Tonight, we’re having her over for a birthday dinner…I’m making Southern Living’s Chicken Enchiladas (first introduced to my by Peek-A-Boo Beth at the beach!)!  Yummy and easy…


  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with peppers
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1 (8-ounce) bottle green taco sauce
  • Toppings: diced tomato, chopped avocado, chopped green onions, sliced ripe olives, chopped cilantro


  1. Stir together first 5 ingredients. Spoon chicken mixture evenly over each tortilla, and roll up. Arrange in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Coat tortillas with vegetable cooking spray.
  2. Bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. Stir together sour cream and taco sauce. Spoon over hot enchiladas, and sprinkle with toppings.

This recipe is a winner!!!

Enjoy the day and Happy Birthday Thea Mary!
