      •  You have a good day too (0+ / 0-)

        And maybe when you calm down you will actually THINK about what unity means.

        What YOUR part of bringing about unity means

        And maybe start working for it all year round, instead of just when you get scared about an election.

        Lefty Democrats have and will always complain and bitch and whine about the Government.

        They will always try to pressure pols to do better.

        It is like the tide.

        I am sure you have done it yourself.

        Attacking them and trashing them for something they will always do is NOT the way to unity.

        Finding ways to work with them despite that is unity.

        I propose a deal, you look at what you have done to destroy unity, and I will look at what I have done. Then MAYBE the two of us can help with unity all year long.

          COWBOY CHICKEN CASSEROLE
          Ingredients needed:

          2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts
          2 1/2 cups Chicken Stock
          1/2 cup dry white wine
          1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
          1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
          2 garlic cloves, smashed
          1 teaspoon black peppercorns
          1 1/4 teaspoons salt
          1/4 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
          2 bay leaves
          6 tablespoons unsalted butter
          1 pound white button mushrooms, wiped clean and stems trimmed, quartered
          Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
          4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
          1 1/2 cups whole milk
          12 cups tortilla chips
          2 cups finely chopped onions
          1 cup finely chopped bell peppers
          2 jalapeños, stems and seeds removed, finely chopped (optional)
          8 ounces grated Pepper Jack cheese
          8 ounces grated Cheddar cheese
          1 tablespoon Emeril's Southwest Essence
          2 teaspoons chili powder
          1 teaspoon ground cumin
          1 cup chopped drained canned tomatoes
          One 4-ounce can diced green chiles, drained

          Combine the chicken, Chicken stock, wine, cilantro, lime juice,
          garlic, peppercorns, 1 teaspoon of the salt, the oregano, & bay leaves
          in a medium saucepan & bring to a boil.
          Reduce the heat to a simmer & cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
          Remove from the heat & allow the chicken to cool in the poaching liquid
          for 45 minutes.
          Remove the chicken from the cooking liquid
          & tare or cut into bite-size pieces.
          Reserve the chicken.
          Strain the cooking liquid & reserve.
          Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
          Heat the butter in a large skillet over high heat until foamy.
          Add the mushrooms, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, & the black pepper
          & cook, stirring occasionally,
          until the mushrooms release their liquid.
          Continue to cook until the mushrooms are golden brown &
          all the liquid has evaporated, about 6 minutes.
          Sprinkle the mushrooms with the flour, stir to blend,
          & cook for 1 minute.
          Add the milk & stir, scraping up any bits from the bottom of the pan.
          Cook until the mixture begins to thicken.
          Add 1 1/2 cups of the reserved chicken cooking liquid,
          stir, & cook until very thick & flavorful, about 10 minutes.
          Remove from the heat.
          Place the tortilla chips in the bottom of a 9 x 13-inch glass casserole.
          Crush the chips with your hands
          so they form a thin layer on the bottom of the dish.
          Pour 1 cup of the reserved cooking liquid over the tortilla chips
          & allow them to soak up the liquid.
          Scatter the chicken over the top of the tortilla layer.
          Spread the chopped onions, bell peppers, & jalapeños
          evenly over the chicken.
          Top with half of the grated cheeses.
          Sprinkle with the Southwest Essence, chili powder, & cumin.
          Spoon the reserved mushroom mixture
          evenly over the top of the spices,
          then top with the tomatoes & green chiles.
          Cover with the remainder of the cheeses.
          Bake uncovered for 40 to 45 minutes, or until
          the cheese is bubbly & the casserole is heated through. Let
          sit for 5 minutes before serving.

          Makes 8 to 10 servings
          Tip: This casserole may be
          prepared in advance &
          frozen until ready to use-simply allow it to
          thaw 1 day in the refrigerator & come to room temperature before baking.
