Well this week was amazing and very green. We had green enchiladas, green rice, and gucamole. Everything was good except the almond rice cooler was OK but we didn't have cheesecloth so we had some chunks in the drink the flavor was great but the sparse cinnon and rice bit didn't go over to well. On the other hand everthing else was amazing, it had a kick but not to strong (for me) jamie (my sister) had some trouble. Can't wait for next week!(kelly, my oldest sister is coming home for winter break!)

Herb-Green Rice with Peas
I liked the rice the best. It was had a little kick to it. It was easy to make as well. All you had to do is mix the greens stuff together, and get it boiling, then saute the rice, then bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 15 minutes. Then you will add the peas and you are done.
Our family really enjoyed the tomatillo enchilada's. Carl did a great job of making this dish. He had it for left overs the next day and said he thought this was a keeper.
The rice almond drink did not go over well. It tasted great at first, but ended up tasting a little like indigestion medicine.
