Hello. My name is Bailey. Last week my Spanish teacher announced that we were going to do another project. My first thought was "Great, I have to get a poster board and do a bunch of research and it's all going to be in a language I don't understand.", but I was surprised when she said that we were all to prepare a Mexican dish. Now, I don't have a whole lot of experience in the kitchen besides helping my mom and making toast. Although I do remember a baking cookies phase when I was younger, but I think that was mostly just a big mess. Anyway, I got out my mother's cookbook and got out her Bean and Cheese Enchilada recipe and got to work.
I went in the kitchen and pulled out all of the stuff I would need. That was easier said than done. I opened the sour cream bowl and it looked like cottage cheese. After showing it an extreme look of horror for a moment, I ran to my mom with it and asked her what happened to it. She said it was just frozen and that it was fine to use. Next, I went in the pantry and looked for enchilada sauce. I found two cans, one had a dent in it that was the size of Texas and they were different brands, but I used them anyway. The last thing I got out was an industrial size can of black olives. If you know me, you know that I am an olive fiend. Not being able to find our metal can opener, I got out the flimsy plastic one. Well, that was a mistake. I opened the can about an inch before the thing got stuck and wouldn't even come off the can. After yanking it off and finding the metal one, I continued with my cooking.
Finally after a mild tortilla burn and enchilada sauce flying everywhere, my enchiladas were done and I was really proud of them. Now, and I can't believe I'm saying this, I really like cooking. So here is my blog. I am Bailey, a Frustrated Teen Cook.
