Recipes for kids abroad. Homeschool and Afterschooling for kids at home.

FOOD!!! Yes, I need pictures! My recipes need pictures around them to identify instead of just a title. They are tweaked to work for us in terms of ease, ingredients frequently on hand, real or pure ingredients(for the most part), our family taste, and usually SOY-FREE or easily adapted to be SOY-FREE. SOY-FREE tagged recipes still mean you have to know what ingredients you are putting in are truly SOY-FREE and even if is was SOY-FREE in the past, you have to check it each time you buy it. Ingredients change frequently and can even be different from store to store or expiration date to expiration date for the same product. Homeschool and Afterschooling notes and ideas are here too. I'll probably separater the blog later, but for now, this is the place for family and friends to look. Time Impaired Living has many definitions that I may update as time goes on or doesn't. To begin with, I'll say that Time Impaired includes time lost because of the schedule of a wonderfully dynamic family. It also includes the nonexistent sense of time when disability kicks in.

Aunt Janice's Enchilada Recipes

Aunt Janice was Mormor's friend from way before California happened and then in later years changed my and some of my siblings diapers.  Years ago, I was at her home for dinner when Cameron was a baby and she made the most wonderful Enchiladas and was kind enough to share the recipes with us.  This is what we have used for years.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas are great but the cans of cream of mystery soup used in them kind of gross me out.  They are basically soy and other hydrogenated cheap filler thickener of the moment ingredient substances that slurp out of the can.  Yes they are the staple of many a Midwesterner or Baptist or Mormon or Catholic or other casserole and jello making baking home cook, but replacing with extra sour cream and seasoning can make recipes healthier and less artificial tasting and soy free.

For the Sour Cream Enchilada Recipe posted here, just substitute the soup can amount of more sour cream and a can of soy free canned chicken or other cooked chopped chicken to the mixture.  A little dehydrated onion can also help boost the flavor if needed.

For the Regular Red Enchiladas, the shredded lettuce sounded kind of gross when I saw it in the recipe but when you finely shred it, it great and authentic.
