LBJ Pedernales River Chili
Green Chile Chutney
Lone Star Chicken-Fried Steak with Cream Gravy
Mexican Wedding Cookies
The Food: Chicken Fried Steak is one of my favorite things. Ours was disappointing. The Textbook called our appetizers Crab Quesadillas but they were actually more like empanadas. The LBJ Chili and Jalapeno Cornbread was a perfect pairing. The Finale of Mexican Wedding Cookies was perfect.
Summary: This Chili recipe was different than any recipe I have ever used. I normally add in some tomato paste and tomato sauce to make it a thicker and still soupier chili. Our Chicken Fried Steak was tough and over-cooked. I think it is because my teammate was not paying attention to the instructions Chef was giving us. I would have liked to try the empanadas. I might use chicken or beef next time. I really liked the Jalapeno Cornbread. I am used to a sweeter version of cornbread. I liked how this was not gritty. I have had some that were gritty and crumbly. I am looking forward to tomorrow nights food!

The Food: Due to the Student Satisfaction Survey Pork Flautas were removed from the menu. I was “Chef of the Day” tonight. I spent the evening checking on the four teams making sure they were on time and didn’t need any help with anything. Chef said that I could make something myself if I stayed in the region. I chose to make a frozen Avocado yogurt.
Summary: I didn’t help with the cooking for anyone because all the teams had four members on them. I used the ice cream machine and made a frozen Avocado Yogurt. I mashed two avocados, added about two cups of Greek Yogurt, two tablespoons of lime juice and a tablespoon of lime zest. When it was just about ready to transfer to the freezer I drizzled in some honey. I boiled some lime skins in simple syrup and then rolled them in sugar to use a garnish. I thought the yogurt was really tasty. It was smooth and creamy and every once in a while you would get a little glob of honey!
