I cooked dinner for my host family today. that was awesome. I made all my favorite dishes - a salad with balsamic vinaigrette, goat cheese, pecans, and dried fruit, mashed potatoes with meat balls and carrots and pies, and of course flan de queso. It turned out very well. I think people liked it a lot.
the whole afternoon, angele helped my mix the minced meat and cut the vegies. It is a lot of fun to cook with a 7-year-old. She really enjoyed handling the food and making something. that was very nice.
now I am super stuffed, though. I can never resist when it is so delicious.
