Old White Lady Enchiladas... kinda

I got this strange idea the other day for a dinner dish and made it up this afternoon. I'm calling it Old White Lady Enchiladas.

Ground beef, crumbled and browned with chopped up green onions. A packet of taco sauce and a little bit of water. Once that's all cooked, I spooned a very good sized chub of it into flour tortillas and rolled em up burrito style. Then I took a glass casserole dish and spooned a little salsa (Trader Joe's) on the bottom and lined up the burritos. A little more salsa on top and then buried it all in a mountain of grated cheese. Tonight I will bake it until it bubbles. I have sour cream for serving. Stay tuned for the review.

Then I cleaned up and proceeded to make 10 breakfast burritos. 5 for the freezer and 5 for the fridge. I cleaned up that stuff and now I'm just chillin'

I wrote to the cat tree guy and asked for an update. He apologized for not being quicker and said that he hoped to get my stuff shipped next week. Me, too!

I did to Daiso and Uwajimaya. It was a little hot but I got back before it got really bad.

I am fanatical about my credit cards. I have 4. A Discover card that I've had forever. A Chase Visa that pays 5% back on Amazon purchases (and I only use it for Amazon). Two Capital One cards - one that pays 4% on food purchases and one for everything else. (Discover and the other Capital One card pay varying percentages of cash back depending on the purchase. And none carry an annual fee.)

I check them all nearly daily and I keep the balances low. When one gets over $100, I pay it back to zero.

Pro tip: If you are trying to improve your credit rating, do not do this. Wait until the end of the billing cycle and pay it then. You want to show a (relatively) big debt that you paid off. My credit rating is fine and has been for many years so I don't worry about it (although I do keep an eye on it always.)

Anyway... When I buy something - online or in store, I always check to make sure I can see it and that it's the correct amount in the Pending section on the card's website.

On Wednesday, I charged my Zappos shoes to my Amazon card to see if they were now part of the 5% Amazon cash back program yet. I charged $116 for two pair. On Thursday, when I returned one pair, an email from Zappos said they have refunded my credit card $60. None of that is showing up on my Chase account. Not the charge or the credit. This morning I bought something on Amazon and used the same card and the charge appeared on the card immediately. Still no Zappos. OCD me is a little freaked by this. And, of course, I need to wait at least 5 business days before anyone - Zappos or Chase - will even talk to me about it.

Oh well. Patience. Please.
