I Could Get Used To This

If you read my post on Monday, you know that Kristen was preparing dinner on Thursday. Well, she made the entire meal from start to finish and did a wonderful job!
She planned the menu.
She did the shopping (with a budget of course).

She prepared the ingredients.
She stirred the ingredients together vigorously.
Here's the final product. Chili Grande served in a tortilla bowl! (She also made a salad, but I somehow lost that picture)
She even made Strawberry Shortcake!
And here she is enjoying the fruits of her labor. Andrew's enjoying it too.

The dinner turned out so well that we agreed that she will be making dinner next Thursday too!

I can't wait!

Did she make the tortilla bowl? If so, how?

Thanks for the nice comments!


Yes, Kristen made the tortilla bowls herself, and it was really easy! All you do is put a 10" flour tortilla (use a fork to poke a few holes in the tortilla first)into a glass bowl and microwave 2-3 minutes and then let cool. The glass bowl gets hot, so she ended up alternating between 2 bowls since she needed to make 6 tortilla bowls. They turned out really well and were yummy too!
