My very first recipe

Tonight I cooked Chile and Cheese spirals!!! It was a quick and simple meal.. but I had to deal with the one thing that I hate with passion is Black olives.. YUCK!!! I got the wrong kind .. I should have got the sliced rings and chopped up my own .. but noooo I got chopped and it looks like Caviar.. ewwwww!!! and after I got it all mixed up and got it on my tortilla shell and then dipped it in Salsa it wasnt so bad!!! I wasnt sure if Nathan would like it or not .. but surpised he does.. Tomorrow i am going to make Blue cheese Mushrooms.. I am kinda nervous .. I have never cooked with Mushrroom before....Below is the recipe for spirals
