All I wanted were vegetarian enchiladas.  Not too much to ask.  A quick swoop of the internets presents ka-billions of options.  And I am sure all those recipes are great.  Great for people who know the difference between Chili Powder (2 tbsp) and Cayenne Pepper (1/4 tsp).  Not so much for those who guess that the two spices might be interchangable. [Woe!]

The most major of fails came in my attempt to make enchilada sauce from scratch.  If only I would have gone with the can!   Why was I too snobby for a can?  Dinner could have been so good.  Just think about it - tofu, onions, zucchini, carrots, olives  . . . all diced and baked in tortillas?!  But then I poured liquid fire on top.  Of course I didn't realize what I had done until it was too late.  It looked so good.

I think Adorable Boyfriend pretty much summed it up when he said,  "I think cayenne is used in weapons.  You basically manufactured pepper spray and made me eat it for dinner."  For the record he ate everything on his plate.  Which wasn't easy.

I'll just leave it at that.  Let us never speak of this again.

One saving grace was the kale salad we had just before filling our mouths with molten lava.  I am trying to copy the wonderful salad at my favorite pizza place, Dove Vivi.  It's just kale with a lemony olive oil and some cheese.  I am still working the whole business out, but am making progress.  Yum.
