Susan’s Special Skillet Enchiladas

16 Nov


Susan’s Super Skillet Enchiladas

1 lb ground beef

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 can cream of chicken soup (or cream of mushroom)

1 10oz can of enchilada sauce

1/3 cup of milk

2 T of chopped green chilies

2 1/2 cup shredded cheddar Cheese (I tend to use more cheese than this.)

Cooking oil

8-10 tortillas (depending on size) corn or flour

Brown beef and onion, then drain. Stir in soup, enchilada sauce, milk and chilies.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 min.

In pan with oil, fry each tortilla until limp (I just microwave them for 15-20 seconds to so)

Hold back about 1/2 a cup of cheese.With the other 2 cups fill each tortilla with cheese and roll up.

After the sauce as simmered twenty minutes, put the rolled up tortillas in to the sauce.

Cover and cook until heated through (5 or so minutes)

Sprinkle reserve cheese on sauce and cover until melted.  Serve.

There are many variations – some use chicken, some do it vegetarian. Some add olives, black beans.

I used a mexican blend cheese that had a little jalapeno in it so that was very good.


Q & A

19 Nov

Recently I was cleaning out my mail box and found some people had turned to me for advice. 

First is from Jon: 

Question for Malcolm :
What motivates you?
Malcolm replied back: 
 Thanks for asking! 
I am mainly motivated by treats and sparkle balls. 
Next comes from a lady, but sorry, I forget her name. I think after you read it, you will understand why I forgot…

This may come up in the remaining portion of the talk, but if not :
Financial inequity in the US is well documented — the huge percentage of wealth in a small percentage of the population. Despite the legitimacy in our tax code you discussed (but noting your aside about hedge fund managers), It is easy to imagine that there are many in poverty who feel that they do not have a legitimate path to education, a living wage, upward mobility etc. How do you think this will play out over the next several years?

Now, being a scholarly tabby, I tried to answer in a way that wouldn’t scare her off. I didn’t want to use any big economics words,

Dude, I am just an orange tabby cat! I don’t know anything about that stuff. 

-Malcolm, Orange tabby cat. 

Believe it or not, I really did email them both back. If they respond, I will let you know. After all I could have the chance to really help some humans here in their understand of the world. I can better them, and make them smarter people. 

Let me pat myself on the back before I go eat some treats. 


Yr friend forever!

Orange Malcolm! 




Hey Ladies!

Hey Ladies!

Am I hot or not?

Gotcha Day, Gone and Went

19 Jun

It twas my “Gotcha Day” today and the human forgot. Heck if wasn’t for the Feline-L list, she never would have known!

That’s abuse, if you ask me!


How does anyone forget this?


Or this:



I know someone who celebrates my arrival every day!!! Guess who?


Yeah, she loves me.


And you know, I am always here.. watching everything… with one eye open to all….




And since I never get any babyfood for any occasion, I have to make due with what I can get my paws on … like back in April:



And just this past week:


I have heard that some people have been accusing me of having a shoe fetish, but you know, maybe if I got some baby food and maybe if I wasn’t always forgotten about, I wouldn’t have to turn to shoes. You know..


Well happy Gotcha Day to Me… I guess…


Baby Who???

7 May

So, like, the human was running the vacuum and you know, I’m not a scardy cat like Teva, so I was just hanging out… behind the ottoman, next to the back of the couch, back by the wall. I wouldn’t call that hiding, would you?? No way. I am just hanging out.

So the human gets done vacuuming and says “Okay Baby Malcolm, you can come out from hiding”


She says it again “Come on Baby Malcolm. It’s safe now”


Humans just don’t get it.

Whatever… I am just going to go lay in the sun and take a bath. Forget her!
