It’s back to school time! To start the (pre)school year off right my friends Susan, Georgeann and I planned a Teacher Appreciation breakfast at the school this week. Nearly 60 teacher and administrators attended. We wanted to do something a little different so we hired a taco cart (only $300 for 60 people!) and decorated with pinatas and bright colored linens. Here’s a little peak at our Fiesta:
Susan had the brilliant idea of filling flower pots with fresh fruit for centerpieces. She had a vision of creating less waste by making everything consumable. I really loved that concept.
The taco guy was scrambling up fresh eggs on the griddle so they were nice and hot. Eggs were served atop cheese filled Chile Renellos or cheese quesadillas. Yummy potato and bean burritos were a great compliment to the eggs.
Catus and salsa salad made for a perfect authentic garnish.
Of course we had a seriously HUGE vat of guacamole. I can never get enough of it!
And no breakfast fiesta is complete without some chilaquiles and Spanish style rice. All the teacher’s plates were piled high with serious Mexican deliciousness. I feel really lucky to be sending my kid to a school he truly enjoys and I was thrilled to be a part of doing something great for the teachers and administrators who make it all possible.
PS: The churros (top picture) were from the freezer section at Smart & Final. The price was also incredible. 25 Churros for about $7.50. All you do is put them directly on your oven rack and bake for 7 minutes and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Mmmmm.
