Hanaa Boone, Kiya McIntosh, Leaha Grandy, and Antoinette Marrow learn to prepare zucchini fries during week 6 of the Spring 2017 My Daughter's Kitchen cooking program at Gesu School.

The thought of tacos had everyone excited. The Parmesan-Crusted Zucchini, not so much! The day had finally arrived when we would be having tacos. There was a lot of chopping and dicing of onions, mushrooms, and green peppers. The girls were dicing without having to give a lot of instruction this week. It was great to see that the girl's cutting skills were improving. There was a bit of skeptisium because none of us had ever made tacos without using the store bought season package. "I can't have tomatoes, they make my face swell sometimes", Hanaa said. We separated some of the taco meat mixture before adding the tomato. No one was talking during meal time! The tacos were delicious and the girls preferred the thinner zucchini fries. They thought they were more like "real" french fries.
