Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

10 small flour tortillas
20oz Green Chile Enchilada sauce 3 chicken breasts 8oz sour cream salt, pepper, cumin  16 oz cheese (I prefer half Colby and half Jack)
Boil chicken until cooked through, then cool and shred.
Turn oven to broil and put the tortillas on the top shelf. Once the top side browns, flip and take out once the other side it slightly browned. Then rip them in quarters.
Grab a 9x11 glass baking dish. Divide the tortillas, chicken, sour cream, and cheese in thirds.
Proceed with the first third of ingredients: Dip the pieces of tortilla into the enchilada sauce and line the bottom of the dish (more sauce is better) Place chicken on top, evenly spaced Spread out Sour Cream as much as possible Sprinkle with cheese Scatter with salt, pepper and cumin
Repeat twice.
If you have any enchilada sauce left, drizzle it all over the top.
Bake at 425 on middle rack for 35 minutes or until top is slightly brown and crispy.

Learning to Sail a Catamaran Through the Virgin Islands

A lifelong dream has been in the making as learning to sail (and hopefully owning a boat) is becoming a reality.  Six friends decided to take a sailing course through the Virgin Islands on a 44' catamaran.  We started in St Thomas and navigated all through the American and British Virgin Islands.

We started the trip by flying into St Thomas, then taking the ferry from Red Hook to Cruz Bay on St John's. We had a friend there who we wanted to see so it was a perfect way to start the trip!  We ended up camping in a 'permanent tent' at Cinnamon Bay which was pretty cool.

As we walked out the front of our tent, the beach was 20 feet away!  The snorkeling right out front was very mediocre, but as we learned later in the week, if we went out another 100 meters, it got much better.  We saw turtles, small sharks, big grouper and lots of other sea life.  After walking/hitchhiking back to Cruz Bay, we hopped on our ferry back to St Thomas to get on our boat.
