We really enjoyed being with the Youth Church of St. Isidore this week. One of the things that is important to us is teaching people to cook tasty simple meals. As a way of introducing the truck to the Church, so they could discern how best to engage the community, we had a cook night, where they could make 2nd dinners. (they are teens after all, and usually hungry.)
The menu for the evening was cheese quesadillas and a mango jalapeño salsa. They each tackled dicing a different fruit or vegetable. Mangoes, jalepeños, red onion, red bell pepper, and lime juice were combined with a bit of salt and pepper. Then everyone took turn at the flat top cooking their tortillas and cheese.
We will go back in two weeks, when they meet again and discuss all the ways they will be able to be more involved in the community. Thank you to Mr. Clark and Ms. Peggy who are the awesome youth ministers!
