Enchilada Lasagna and Sunday Dinner

I was about to make enchiladas the usual way when I suddenly recalled a Good Eats show I watched not long ago and was inspired to layer tortillas and fillings instead of rolling them. The result was the above. I wanted to use mole sauce but could only find a bottle of enchilada sauce from TJ. So I went with that. For filling, I used ground turkey with a small green pepper (chopped) and half a large onion (chopped). I was hoping the sauce would provide all the flavor but next time I will season the filling better. Used TJ extra sharp cheddar and the whole thing came out just lovely. This will be my lunch for the week.
For Sunday dinner, I made some chicken (coated with italian bread crumbs and pan fried) with broccoli (oven roasted with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper and garlic) and couscous (tossed with a white wine sauce with sliced scallions and garlic and sauteed crimini mushrooms). The couscous is not looking very attractive in this picture but it was quite tasty. Dessert was french vanilla ice cream from TJ with a chocolate fudge sauce (recipe from Silver Palate).

I am fat but happy. :o)O=
