“Just Roll with It” Serving up Recipes and Humor


By Sheri Hopkins, Lifestyle Contributor

Hello everyone! I took last week off and one of my sweet readers called and told me they missed me. I thought that was very nice of her. There is someone in the world that likes to listen to me. I accused Chuck Hopkins of not listening to a word I said, and he replied, “there is no way I could ever take in every word that comes out of your mouth.”

I was talking to Curtis Feimster this week and I told him he could talk the paint off a barn door. He said that sounded like something his momma would say. It’s the truth for sure.

I had President’s Day off and took my Aunt Pat to Walmart and pushed her all over Walmart in a wheelchair and let her shop till we dropped. We went and ate Mexican food and met up with my brother, some cousins and another aunt. We had the best time. When we were leaving Walmart, I got my aunt in the car and pushed the wheelchair back inside the Walmart. I came out and about ripped the handle off a car that wasn’t mine. In my defense it was the same color, and I just couldn’t figure out why the door wouldn’t open. The whole time my aunt is sitting in the car behind me. Finally, I looked around and saw her behind me in the car.

That’s not the first time that has happened and probably won’t be the last. I did have my shirt on right and not inside out. I’ve done that so much that everyone in the tri-state area knows I wear a big old 2 xl shirt. When everyone was wearing masks during our Covid era, I would see people that I thought I knew and would even call them by name, and it wouldn’t be who I thought it was. I done that to a guy at CV’s and I hollered, “hey Scott!” He looks at me and starts shaking his head. I guess I scared him to death. I wasn’t gonna hug him or anything, but he sure acted like I was. It was funny. Wonder how many people I spoke to that wasn’t who I thought they were? Some people just nod and go on.

This week’s recipe is apple enchiladas. You can’t go wrong with apple and cinnamon.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
1 21 oz. can of apple pie filling
6 8″ tortillas
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
Spoon the filling down the center of the tortillas and sprinkle with cinnamon. I would use a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Roll up and place them seam side down in a lightly greased baking dish. Bring the butter and both sugars and water to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for three minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over the enchiladas. Let stand for 30 minutes and then bake at 250 degrees for 20 minutes. A little vanilla ice cream would be awesome on top. Yum, yum. Enjoy and have a wonderful week and enjoy the beautiful weather!
