Ohhhhhhhh yum!

So I get home from an event and decide to whip up an amazing dinner for my family & kids. I brought some chicken and threw some tandoori powder on top with spices & veggies, beans, lentils, & quinoa.
Mmmmmm. Let’s just say as this was baking. You could smell how amazing this was and tasted delicious. ¬† Oh and the veggies just has some water in it, pink salt, and black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. ¬†that’s it.

My kids loved this and loved helping clean up which is a first as usually they eat and run back onto their devices. ¬† ¬†I made a rule, take a picture if you want of the food but place all devices, whether they’re iPhones, iPads, iPods, or other devices onto this table here, then let’s eat, talk, have a real discussion and then clean up and then get back into our system and it seems to be working really well.

So what did you have for dinner? What kind of traditions do you have with your family?
