My husband is an awesome cook. He finds new ways to make even the same meal unique and delicious. He has a knack for finding the right spices to add an extra boost to a meal.
Even with the blessing of him cooking and him being great at it; it does my heart well to be able to cook a meal for my family. I try to do this at least a couple times a week but mostly it turns into quick meals.
Today I had the time to make Mexican Chicken Quinoa Casserole! It was a new recipe for us but in optimistic fashion I made a double batch for an extra casserole to freeze for the future. (This is generally how I am able to "make" dinner for my family- by pre-making and freezing.)
It fills my heart to make good, healthy food for my family. It fills me with joy when my kids actually like and eat the recipe! Tonight I got both. It was a beautiful gift!
I'm grateful for these little blessings. I'm grateful to feel the blessing of this simple act filling my heart. I'm grateful to try to consciously choose actions that will fill my "cup". I'm grateful my kids both liked tonight's meal. I'm grateful for a fun new recipe with our favorite, quinoa! I'm grateful to have an extra casserole to look forward to in a few weeks. I'm grateful for Autumn and all the great recipes, casseroles, and soups that come with it. I'm grateful to share love through good food.
What are some of your favorite recipes? What do you like to cook? How do you share love?
May we choose things that fill our heart and soul. May we find healthy ways to show our love and delicious food to share. Have a beautiful day!
