There was a Teacher Appreciation lunch at the school today that I wanted to lend support to, but due to previous commitments I wasn't able to actually be on hand to serve food... so I volunteered to help during the planning stages with things like food prep and decorations. Over the past few days I brought little things over to the school that might help support the lunch's theme (Mexican Fiesta!), helped make posters and invitations for the Teachers, washed and chopped a whole lot of lettuce and made corn tortillas (or pupusas, since they were thicker) from scratch using the Tortilla press my dad brought me from Mexico. It was so much fun donning my apron from The Little Mexican Cooking School and getting ready to play with my brand new toy... Sophie got in on the action and was actually responsible for making most of the pupusas herself - we even recorded a video of the whole thing for my Dad so he could see how quickly she was able to master the tortilla press. If I'm able to compress the video enough to upload to the blog I will, but thus far the file size is too big - if only compressing a video could be done in that handy tortilla press we'd be up and running!
