Last night's Chicken and Green Chile Enchiladas were delicious.
Ready to roll.
Ready for the oven.
And ready to eat!
This is where I will be until Spring!
To do this work, I used Williams Services, Inc., a company that I found on Angie's List. They had received outstanding reviews and, now having had the work completed, I would highly recommend them for any gas fireplace, piping or appliance needs. They were prompt and personable, did great work and gave us a great price. I had contacted another very well-known company in the area and their quote was almost double the quote I received from Williams (and their Angie's List ratings were not all that great).
Angie's List is a review service for companies that, among other things, offer home repair & maintenance services and health/dental/pet care in over 700 categories. I don't know if Angie's List is available just in the metropolitan Washington DC area or if it is nationwide but, in addition to the fireplace repairs, I have used it to find a plumber, a groomer for the dogs and someone to power wash the exterior of our house. There is a fee to join (I think about $25) but there are also special deals and discounts offered on many of the services and we off-set our fee with a discount on the first service we used.
As I was enjoying my new-to-me fireplace last night, I went through a pile of unread magazines that have somehow accumulated over the last few months and spotted this recipe in Southern Living.
