Battle of the tacos

Every month or so, a group of our friends get together with a food theme pre-planned, and we battle out our culinary skills to see whose will be voted the best. The kids have even started participating, which has turned out to be a lot of fun for all of us. Although, you should see the tension rise as the four of us are trying to maneuver in our kitchen, hahaa! It's getting easier though. I love that at 11 and 5, Alyx and Kate are pretty much fearless when it comes to thinking up a creative dish and deciding the can most certainly do it. They've learned, however, that it takes a little research and planning to properly execute a (sometimes) unique dish, but that hasn't hindered them at all.

I've been sharing these images each month on Facebook, so you can see previous cook off photos there. From breakfast, japanese, pizza, and tacos - we're challenging ourselves in the best ways! It's been fun, and so good to maintain our social life with our kids. I love that they hang with the adults and fit right in! I hope our kids find as good of friends as we have, because it's been a pretty big blessing in our lives to have people there to laugh with, cook with, and make memories with as the years go by.

Until next time...
