Lorien had a really fun activity with the young women this month. They did an episode of
for their activity. They were divided into groups & give a basket of foods: strawberries, a chocolate bar, yellow peppers, & rotisserie chicken. They needed to make 3 different recipes (an appetizer, a main dish, & a dessert) using their foods & other foods found in the pantry. Their secret ingredient was cream cheese. The cream cheese had to be used in all 3 dishes. They had 1 hour to complete their task.
Lo's group used our house to make their dishes. They whipped out 3 amazing foods. I was totally impressed with these 12-13 year old girls.
For their appetizer they made buffalo nachos. They put chips on a plate, mixed cream cheese, chicken, peppers, & some buffalo sauce (I KNOW, RIGHT?) & made some absolutely to die for nachos. They topped it with cilantro & it was really amazing. . . which reminds me, I actually want to make these for my family. They were SO good.
For their main dish, they made chicken tacos. They mixed the cream cheese, peppers, chicken, & cumin & put them inside a tortilla with cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, & spices. They added sides of sour cream & salsa. Yum.
For dessert, these talented girls made strawberry cupcakes. They actually cut up strawberries & put them in the cupcake mix. They baked the cupcakes & made cream cheese frosting with the cream cheese & topped it with strawberry pieces & shaved chocolate bar. They were to DIE FOR.
Look how beautiful their presentation was.
Lorien's little group was so fun. What a memorable night they had. We're going to miss her little friends.
