you wonder "sweet potato enchiladas or pad Thai???"

OK, if you had guests coming this evening, late, and enough to FILL YOUR HOUSE?  And you knew you were making guacamole and Mexican rice (Gary's Mexican rice:  boil rice as usual, except as you start it, toss in tomato, peppers, beans, spinach, onion and spice, SO tasty).  And I keep thinking, what to go with that?  My first thought was sweet potato enchiladas (and raspberries! see yesterday's post...) but then I have these lovely snow peas and everybody LOVES pad Thai...

But what decides it?  Other than the already Mexican theme here? Prepping before.  I can have the enchilada made and baked and keeping warm in the oven until folks arrive....and it is always best to have all dinner prep done long before anybody shows up, right? Especially something that benefits from just sitting there, keeping warm....  YUM.

OK, so we have some nice pots going here, just outta the kiln.....

Enchiladas! Yes!

'Dorable cups and dishes!

I vote for the Enchiladas, keep the theme going with rasberry Margaritas and or Sangria.
Having said that though, you need to do what will be easiest for you because your guests want a relaxed and happy host as much as they look forward to good food.
Have fun!

Enchiladas AND pad thai? Or am I being piggy? Those enchiladas sound fantastic. I'll definitely give them a try.

You are on a roll with these mugs and cups! So cool!
