Day 16 - My Kids Think My Recipes are Weird


Day 16 - My Kids Think My Recipes are Weird


This morning my son made me a smoothie as soon as I got up in hopes that I would eat more normal food.  I'm kind of a fly by the seat of my pants type of gal when it comes to food, so all of this planning stuff has thrown me for a loop a bit.  For example, today I started to make a turkey burger with green  peppers and onions, and then it sort of felt apart, and then it wasn't cooking all the way through.  So it turned into ground turkey that was put on a salad and eaten with guacamole as a dressing.  It tasted good, but like I said - getting into weird food.  

Speaking of weird, I got to interview my friend, Megan Sillito, on Wisdom Window today.  She taught me an exercise that I am really excited to do with my kids.  It's super simple, but aligns with Ideal LifeVision, too.  It goes like this.

Mom Lesson:  

Grab a piece of paper and pencil with your kids.  Have them write at the top, "What do I want?"  After they have written what they want, keep asking the question, "What would be better than that?"  Then ask, "What else is possible?"  Finally, "How would it feel to have that?"

Pretty cool, eh?  Gets them dreaming bigger!  Speaking of which, I am in the process of creating a Homeschool module of Ideal LifeVision.  I'm way excited, because I know how much it is going to help families with their homeschool.  That should be done sometime this week!

Are you sick of me posting my meals?  Me, too.  So let's talk turkey.  This is a pretty simple recipe that I had today, even if it did fall apart.
