Studying the recipe
White bean filling
Ready for the oven
Did you know I have this cute little chef that cooks us dinner on Mondays? Caitlin has taken Monday night to cook dinner for the three of us, at least for the summer months before she starts college next month. This is the third dinner she has made us and they have all turned out very good. No help from me at all. She took a foods class in her last semester of high school,and has become very confident in the kitchen ever since. She even shops for the nights dinner herself, which, I believe is a big part of becoming a good cook.
The dinner she made this Monday was a vegetarian enchilada recipe called "White bean enchilada." The filling was very good and you didn't even miss the meat. She said, she would maybe not add so much of the sauce next time for a more crispy texture. This is one of those lessons you get while you are learning, and I say that is a good thing.
This summer I may show her how to make a pie. Maybe she can tackle that next week. I'm thinking a peach pie.....stay tuned for more Caitlin cooks on Monday.
