Food for Thought Meal Project

My meal for the Food for Thought project is themed around one of my favorite foods: Mexican food. The meal starts with Chicken Quesadilla for an appetizer, a Mexican Burrito Bowl for the main dish and Flan for dessert. I found three recipes online for each part of the meal, and to plan a meal for ten guests I had to do calculations to know how much of each ingredient I needed. Then I created a cookbook, which you can read below, to show how each recipe is prepared and cooked.
