What's for Supper and At War With Hughesnet

Here's my first try at making a Chicken Enchilada Casserole. If it tastes as good as it looks, I'll be full as a tick about dark-thirty.
My homemade pica de gallo. I made a batch to go with the fried catfish last night and it was so good that I made some more to accompany the enchilada casserole. I was out of cilantro but it was still some fine eatin' without it. Here's another relish type dish that I make when we have fish or good ole pinto beans. It's just thinly sliced cucumbers, slices of onion, a few turns of the pepper mill and salt, and a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.

********
Now, about those HughesNet folks. Since August, I've only had a few rare occasions when their speeds have been anywhere near what they advertise. In fact, the speeds are often not even as fast as my old dial-up. Apparently these folks are selling services that they don't have the equipment to handle. Their tech folks (the ones that speak English clearly enough) must have a script that they read from too and they're full of every lie the company can think up.

If anyone reading this is thinking of using Hughesnet's shitty excuse of a broadband service, PLEASE DON ' T so you can save yourself a lot of grief.

I must say though, They are quite good at collecting their monthly fees for their crappy service.

How was the casserole? Is it made with cream of chick soup? I make that sometimes and we lurves it!

Did you put lime in your pico de galleo?

And that stinks about the internet service. That's your satellite service, right?

That food looked good enough to make me forget about Hughesnet - at least for a few minutes. :) I listened to Ole Charlie too - he sure can play that thing. It sounded like he was advocating the hanging of politicians - my feelings run in that direction as well, just not quite that drastic. ec

Oh, man you made me hungry! I love cucumber salad. And pico. And that casserole! I guess I shouldn't forget to eat lunch, eh? I don't think it would matter, that food would look good anyway!
