Mexican Cooking Class: Fajitas, Avocado Salad, Quinoa with Leeks, Cornbread, Potato Soup (and Dilip's Orangey Rice Pudding, Mango)

In today's cooking class, my students prepared seitan-based fajitas, avocado salad (it was supposed to be guacamole, but the avocados were not ripe enough), quinoa with leeks, cornbread, potato soup and, not shown here, dessert - "Dilip's Orangey Rice Pudding" and mango.

Yesterday, my Mom had us over to her home to celebrate Bhai Dooj, a holiday where sisters honor their brothers and brothers give them their blessings. My aunt, visiting from Connecticut, played the role of sister, as well as representing her daughter, my cousin. After the short ceremony, my Mom served an Indian dinner.
