Family Mexican Night

Family time is important and a must in today’s society. Peer pressure is so hard for children to deal with and sometimes they may feel there is nobody there to help them get through it. When you spend time together as a family; talking and laughing, they’ll feel better about things and they’ll know you are the one they can come to for help and guidance.

Family night can be anything you want it to be and you can serve any type of food you want, so you’ll have the ability to do what you want. Family Mexican night is one suggestion for you to consider and it’s a great way to enjoy the company of your family. Here is a suggestion for your family Mexican night.

The games you play need to be based on the age of your children, but it doesn’t really matter what you play or how you do it. The important thing to remember is the fact that you’re spending time together as a family.

Some suggestions for games would be Monopoly, go fish, or Uno just to name a few. There are so many different games you can play, so it’s important you find one that is fun and interesting to your children. You may consider purchasing a new game each month so you have a variety to choose from. Another idea is to let your children take turns choosing the game and meal you have each time.

Here’s a meal you can make in 20-25 minutes and your entire family will enjoy it. It’s easy enough that your children may be able to make it or at least help you put it together.

Enchilada Taco’s

2 lbs hamburger
¼ cup diced onion
1 medium tomato
1 small can enchilada sauce
¾ cup cheddar cheese
8 Wheat soft taco shells

Brown the hamburger and onion until done. Add salt and pepper as desired. Drain and return to the stove. Add the diced tomato and enchilada sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the cheese. Add ½ to ¾ cup of beef mixture to each taco shell. Add lettuce and sour cream if desired.

Family night is an event you should have at least once a month. It will build relationships with your children and it will help you to learn more about them. You’ll be able to easily have communication with them that may be difficult otherwise.
