FINALLY I am posting the photos of the food I took at the cabin :D I cannot believe it took me this long but I have been quite busy. Although maybe I shouldn't use that as my reason :) Anyway I am going to post the recipes with the photos. Some of the foods I didn't take pictures of but for the most part I did :) Although I won't be posting all the food here, so much food went into feeding 40 people, I probably would bore you all. Either way here it goes :)
Here are the fried potatoes :)http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Texas-Style-Spanish-Rice We made this along with the Enchilada lasagna which I don't have a picture of. The lasagna is like regular lasagna only with enchiladas. Tasty recipe! http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Beef-Enchilada-Lasagna-Casserole

Overall it was a great week at the cabin. It was challenging, fun, a lot of work, but at the same time relaxing. We didn't get much down time but when we were finished for the evening it was nice to be able to go into our room and just unwind after working a long day :) Our days started around 6:30 and went till 8 or 8:30 in the evening. We had a bit of a break after each meal and usually about an hour or so downtime in the afternoon :) Saturday we made so we had about 3 hours or downtime but other than that they were long days! Well that is all I have to say for our week at the cabin. I had great fun, definitely was a good experience, and would do it over again!! Hope you enjoyed the photos and hope you also make some of the recipes!!
