Youth Conference Food Prep

Last week, several of the children helped me prepare a meal for the speakers at our church's annual youth conference. I am thankful for these opportunities we have to spend time in the kitchen together and for the privilege to serve at the church where we have been so blessed.
Elizabeth was the "tomato salsa maker". 
These two sweeties diligently cut about 2 lbs. of pineapple, many peppers, and a large amount of cilantro, (used in their pineapple salsa as well as in the tomato salsa, the guacamole, and the rice & beans) plus squeezed a lot of limes, the other key ingredient in our meal.
Sauteing the peppers!
Taylor prepared the incredible guacamole. This young man applies himself diligently to whatever project is at hand.
And then there were the rhubarb custard bars. M-m-m-m-m, these were just another confirmation of Chelsy's ability to bake yummy desserts. Hudson and Elizabeth were the chopping duo.
 Honestly, these were one of the best creations ever made with butter and rhubarb!
READY, SET, EAT!
Tortillas, grilled fajitas chicken and vegetables, lettuce, cilantro rice & beans, tortilla chips, sour cream, guacamole, tomato salsa, pineapple salsa, and the rhubarb custard bars were enjoyed.   

 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
-1 Corinthians 10:31

  3. I guess you should not look at this food when you haven't ate yet for all these pictures made me hungrier.

  4. I'd love if you'd share the recipe for the cilantro rice & beans & the rhubarb dessert! We planted rhubarb last year & I've never used it before so I'd love to try your tried and true one! I also love cilantro so that sounds amazing! Thank you! Andrea Howell
