...cookin' with crisco...

Steph & I have tried to make it a point this year to cook new recipes together at least once a week. For some reason, we really like to cook here! Probably because we don't have anything else to do and it's a challenge because all the ingredients aren't available here :) It's been really fun, because I've never had a roommate who wanted to cook so much! We've made both recipes that she has grown up with and me too. In the past few weeks we have conquered, pizza with homemade dough (the BBQ chicken was the best), stir fry, fajitas, and friend apple pies. Pretty much everything was delicious! 

On another note, we have discovered a great dinner place. Its about 3 blocks away & on the side of the road ran by a bunch of women in front of their house. We went there Wednesday after the Kid's Home & had some delicious carne asada, beans, plaintain chips, gravy, repollo (cabbage) and chismol (pico de gallo), basically tipico! Because it was so good, we went back tonight- I had a flauta - flour tortilla with cheese/ham with lots of toppings and a baleada (beans, cream, cheese, avacado, and little chunks of beef & it was great! I love Honduran food and am going to miss it so much!

Of course we had to take pictures, so here it goes...
