Huevos Rancheros

picture-or-video-1751.jpgI was so worried about Hurricane Hannah when I left Charlotte that I wanted to curl up in a ball and suck my thumb.  Well, it’s ironic that it swept by there without a drop of rain, and here in New York, we got got dumped on for several hours by that storm.  It’s a beautiful day here, and n.f.l. football starts today (life is good).  I made this for dinner last night as I watched the storm pass through on my balcony,  it’s not how I would make for day job, but rather an easy version that would be great on the family table.

Huevos Rancheros

Serves 4

4 flour tortillas

1 lb. chicken, diced and cooked

1 can refried beans

1 jar salsa

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 fried eggs

chopped cilantro

Warm the tortillas and top with re fried beans, cheese, chicken, salsa, and eggs.  Sprinkle the cilantro, and enjoy.


I fancy myself as a cat whisperer. I never really liked cats until I met Celeste’s. Now I have them eating out of my hand and even her thirteen year old cat who never trusted guys loves me. She was telling me about a new business in Charlotte that is training dogs, and I quickly thought of the equivalent for cats. The name also came fast because this won’t be a cute and cuddly program, but rather a kitty boot camp, where I take no prisoners and show up in my camouflage uniform and teach them some lessons! First step in the program is to get your cat back in shape.
