what's for dinner??

a couple weeks ago, on one of our many snow days, joshua and bailey attempted to make a chocolate cake. it turned out awful. like, not edible. gross. but they had the BEST time cooking together. and there isn't much that they enjoy doing together.

so...I suggested they try again. and they said they wanted to make dinner. "THE WHOLE THING." "but maybe you could stay in the kitchen so we don't mess it up??" ;-)

the menu was tacos. and strawberries.

they worked hard. did it ALL (even the dishes!) AND it turned out GREAT!
when I make taco's, it's pretty simple. but Joshua wanted it to look like a whole spread...so he added tomatoes and avocado and lettuce (that really only 1 or 2 kids eat any of those 3 things.) I loved how invested they were in the whole ordeal. they did a GREAT job...and said they wanted to do it again!
this was my dinner. while I LOVE taco's...i'm working on a new nutrition plan that I will share soon. for now, I love it. i'm eating more food that I have for years. and feeling stronger and faster than I ever have. win-win-win.
