Yes, I think doing all-women events without mentioning the lack of Y chromosomes is the way to go. It is like giving French people vegetarian food without mentioning the lack of meat. If you don't tell them, they won't notice.

Re: Burrito recipe ideas

The leaves were baby spinach. The heat came from a tiny amount of Angry Cock jolokia sauce. They don't have to be super spicy. The filling was rice, onion, tofu and fava beans.

Burrito recipe ideas

I think that almost anything can go in a burrito. You need a reasonable mix of carbohydrates, protein and fresh vegetables. Stuff shouldn't be too dry so that it falls apart, or too wet so that it drips everywhere. And the mix shouldn't have overly big bits which prevent you getting an easy mouthful...
