Friday Friend recipe #253, #254, and #255-Enchilada Pie, Spinach and Mushroom Salad and Thai Chicken with Peanut Sauce

My Friday Friend Cookbook Countdown #253, #254 and #255

all of them Barb's recipes

and you know all the whys and wherefores of this countdown, right? Homemade cookbook, friends contributed, Handyman said I couldn't/wouldn't do it, I'll show him, yadda yadda yadda....

...and the rest is cookbook history!

Just remember, the countdown is not all about pretty food and food design---it's about the people and the stories.
And (the most important thing)  proving my husband wrong--and that I can and WILL make every recipe in this cookbook

Do not judge a dish by a picture Debbie takes.
It's Enchilada Pie--a mess of a casserole dish, BUT it tastes great! So there all you photo geniuses, so there!
This is a scrumptious, filling, semi (not at all) Mexican dish that's good enough for company.

Today, you're getting a 3-in-1 recipe deal!
I am trying to get thru my cookoff challenge.

So... the Spinach Mushroom Salad was good.
I made one little addition tho--
It turned out good with that addition. 😁
(I just like to tease Barb a little bit)
It looks like I added a cucumber too!

And this chicken dish?  Well worth making it.  
Even with the Bisquick.  I have to come clean here and say out loud that I've always been suspicious of recipes made with a pre-mixed baking mix. 

And now, without further ado-- oh wait!  Barb has entered, and I have made, a gazillion and one recipes for this countdown.  So no real story about her this time-- just this cute little thing!

So, again, without further ado--oh wait!  Barb has waited for this for (a little less than) a gazillion years and she is over the moon!  Which is a very touching and cute thing to see.
One day maybe I'll get to see and hold cute little Charley. 

Okay, okay, NOW without further ado-- the editor and typist of the original Friday Friend Cookbook, Barbara Jean Brown and her first ever grandchild, Charley (Charlotte Faye)!

That's it. That's my story of Barb. 
She sometimes wondered if she'd every become a grandma and here she is!
Congratulations to everybody!

And this my friends is
