last night we decided to share our magical cooking skills with an elite group of friends.
unfortunately, we were so hungry, the food was not captured in film, only in our tummies.
here is a breakdown of the fabulous menu-- comment if you would like to see the recipes.
nopales (yeah, that means cactus-- see previous posts)
mango black bean salad
annie's famous burritos
mexican pastries (we didn't make these, but they were authentic mexican-made!)
everything was yummy and served with some guiltless gourmet chips. after trying all 4 kinds of chips (black bean, black corn, yellow corn, and chili lime) we decided a few things:
1) these are a little pricey, given that half the bag is full of air.
2) chili lime-- not as good as it sounds. not enough chili, or lime. kind of like burnt cumin?
3) lexy feels they were a little salty, but given that annie could drink salt for breakfast, she kind of liked that. i should get a salt lick.
although no food pictures were taken, here are some pictures of our attractive faces wearing hats that were won while playing a serious game of loteria, otherwise known as a mexican face-off... or just bingo.
this evening earned 5 scoops of icing, although there were no cupcakes involved. mmmm...cupcakes.
lexy and annie.
