What does a grateful heart look like?

thanksgiving

Thanksgiving! So, we know we should be thankful all of the time. And we are reminded over and over throughout November that this is the month to be super thankful or at least more aware. But I find that even with the reminder of Thanksgiving I struggle. I go around knowing that I should be thankful. But I […]

Making Memories List

making-memories

So this is sort of a bucket list but more of a making memories list. These aren’t so much my ‘life goals’ as just things I think would make for fun experiences and it would be cool to make memories with my people. Some form of this list has been hanging around since I was probably 15 […]

10 tips for flying with babies

flying-tips

We made it home! I don’t know how, but we’re here and we survived! Actually, flying with babies isn’t as bad as you might think. Yes, I still get a little tense with anticipation but I’m trying to learn to take it easy.  It helps to have a great team partner to bounce off of when it gets […]

Nepal’s Cauliflower Curry

cauliflower curry nepal

We’ve ended up having people over a few times when we made food from each country and the same happened for Nepal night. It’s a good thing because we still had a ton of left over lentils (note: lentils are filling and you don’t need to double the recipe.) This cauliflower curry however, flew off the […]

Guatemalan Pupusas

pupusas

We ate Guatemalan pupusas one night for dinner this week. It’s kind of like a dough ball stuffed with beans and cheese. Right up my alley! Based on the four dishes we tried, it seems like Guatemala food is often stuffed or cooked inside of something else. Ingredients: 2 c.  masa harina (a dough made from […]

Plantain Rellenitos

plantain rellenitos

Plantain Rellenitos was our choice of dessert for Guatemalan week. And since it has both bananas and beans, it can almost be considered healthy! Just kidding. They were very rich but tasty. Ingredients: 4 ripe plantains (we used bananas and cut down the sugar content) 1 c. of refried bean ⅓ c. sugar (since we […]

Beautiful Guatemala

This week we choose to learn about Guatemala. My dad visited there this past winter. He was with a group of doctors and other trained people who went to help and check on kids. I know the health care system is not the greatest in Guatemala.  My dad really enjoyed his time there. He said the people […]

Guatemalan Tamales

tamales

My first thought at tamales was ‘where am I going to find banana leaves for wrapping in Germany?’ Lucky me, I found you can also use parchment paper or even tin foil to keep the tamales together. Ingredients: 2 c. corn flour 1/2 c. butter, cubed 1 t. salt pinch of sugar 1/2 c. broth […]

Chiles Rellenos

chili rellenos

For Guatemala week we tried out our modified version of Chiles Rellenos. I try to make dinner kids approved most night so we don’t have to cook twice. So this version is maybe a little less spicy than usual. But I would still recommend this way! Ingredients: 6 large poblano peppers 2 tsp. vegetable oil 1 medium […]
