Have a Tasty Tuesday!
Recently we’ve been talking about the Our Father prayer with our 6 year old. I told her that it is one of the most important prayers and definitely very special since it was Jesus who taught it to us when he was asked how to pray. As I worked with her and helped her break it down to learn it, I thought about how perfect his prayer really is. It answers many of the essential questions of life.
Who is God? Our Father
Where is God? In Heaven
What do we do with God? Praise Him
What is God’s place in our world and lives? God is above us and all others. It is HIS kingdom and HIS Will that prevails over all other people and powers.
What does God do for us? He gives us what we need every day
What should we ask of God? To love us and forgive us over and over again.
What does God ask of us? To love others and forgive them over and over again.
How does He want us to live? He wants us to avoid what will hurt us or others; He wants us to choose good over bad.
What if we fail? He will protect us from the chains of evil and, if we ask, He will help us get out of whatever trouble we get ourselves into and put us back on the right path.
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.
Here are some pics of the project we did to help her learn the prayer:
1. Enjoyed tea time with all three children once this week
2. Did all the laundry (well except the towel and diapers) in one day!
3. Cleaned the Bathrooms and vacuumed on main floor
What small successes do other moms have to boast about today?
There are many mommy blogs out there that seem to be written by perfect mommys about their perfect family and perfect homes and perfect everything. For the most part I like to focus on the positive and this is good. I know I said I want to stop complaining so much but I also feel it is important to take a reality check sometimes. After I vent or write down my frustrations, I feel better and realize they’re not so bad. It helps to talk about the trials of motherhood/marriage life with others not because I enjoy knowing others are suffering too but because it reminds me that I am not alone and crazy. (or at least not alone) So I decided to dedicate a day to share some of my small whiney moments. I even went and made a badge for it because I’m such a nerd. I might decide that I’m spending too much time and effort into whining and never do this again, we’ll just have to see what next week brings. My rules are that I will only share 3 (even though there could be many more!) and I will offer these pebbles in my day for all mothers and their families. Feel free to join me if you’d like, misery loves company right?
So in no particular order or level of irritation, these are my 3 whines for today (that I actually wrote yesterday):
1. It took me 2 hours to make muffins for breakfast. And then some stuck to the pan.
2. The 6 and 3 year old have been arguing and fighting over every little tiny silly thing all.day.long.
3. I can’t seem to get anywhere on time this week, or last week for that matter, including getting daughter to school on time, blah.
Matzo Meal Chicken Nuggets with Honey Mustard
I was wandering through the international section of my local grocery store the other day when I happened upon this Matzo meal stuff. The picture of the breaded chicken caught my attention and a quick check for the ingredients on the back sold me when I saw there were only two : Wheat Flour and Water (both of which I could actually pronounce)
They have a Lemon Baked Chicken recipe on the back I used to do my nuggets. I think I used 2 chicken breasts (pounded at the butchers) and cut them into small pieces. Then I dipped them into some egg and then into the breading mixture:
3/4 cup Matzo Meal
1 1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp lemon zest (you could also squeeze lemon juice over the chicken)
Then I fried this in coconut oil in the skillet and it was delicious! I served it with some yummy honey mustard (found in the condiments aisle) and it was a success!
I’ve tried making breaded chicken many times and this was probably the best it’s ever come out. The breading actually stuck nicely to the chicken but it didn’t seem too thick, it was just right. Matzo meal is my new friend when it comes to breaded chicken.
What else are other moms making for Tasty Tuesday?
