New York 
Brandon Stanton, a photographer, is trying to take as many portraits of New Yorkers he possibly can (3000 snaps so far) to create a visual census of the city for 2011. His project is called Humans of New York. See his Humans of New York on his facebook page - his wall photos are available for public viewing. http://www.facebook.com/humansofnewyork

ART:
MoMA's Sculpture Garden
(In the US, this week is all about traveling to Granny's house for a huge turkey dinner and for watching football (mostly college football) on the tube. Hopefully this article will give you a casual art walk while you digest the turkey and other great food.) 
Enjoy the peace and serenity of one of the world's most famous sculpture displays as we stroll through MoMA's New York sculpture garden.

PARTY FOOD:
Easy Enchilada Casserole
Many times Good Morning America's hosts have shared this recipe, it is the most requested food segment they have ever aired. Former GMA host Charlie Gibson was given the recipe by his friend, Mary Corkran. 

If you are invited to an office party this holiday season and you need to bring some food, this dish is fast, easy and has universal appeal.

Ingredients
Casserole
1 package (13-ounces) of Doritos. Crumbled all except 2 cups (Reserved for casserole topping)
2 tbsp. onion, grated
1 10-ounce can chili with beans
10 to 15 ounce enchilada sauce
1 can tomato sauce (8 ounce)
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Topping
2 cups Doritos
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups sour cream

Cooking Directions
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Crumble 6 cups Doritos with your hands into a large mixing bowl.
Add the onion, the chili, the enchilada sauce, tomato sauce and 1 cups of cheddar cheese to the crumbled Doritos. Stir with a rubber spatula to combine. Place mixture into an 8½ x 11-inch oven proof casserole dish. Bake for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven. Spread the sour cream over the top of the casserole with a large spoon or rubber spatula. Top with 2 cups of non-crumbled Doritos. Then sprinkle with the other ½ cup of cheddar cheese.

Bake for five minutes to melt top cheese on top. Now, it's ready to take to the party. 

Until later,
Jack
