Happy New Year to all of you!!! We’ll start the year with a bit of an inverted blog post design. I’ve decided to post the recipe – to not only these deliciously moist and extremely flavorful Bulgur Stuffed Bell Peppers but all other recipes in the future – first, so people visiting Green Healthy Cooking for its recipes only, can find it right away without having to scroll down. For the rest of you lovely people that ARE interested in all the wonderful things I have to communicate the world, don’t worry, I’ll write it all up aaafter the recipe ;)
And while we’re at it, I have 12 things to tell you. In Mexico they have this wonderful tradition that at midnight on New Year’s Eve the radio and tv and all broadcast 12 chimes during which you eat 1 grape for every chime while thinking of a wish and then down a glass of cider or champaign for all of them to come true. Isn’t this wonderful? After this tradition you have to hug absolutely everybody at the party wishing them a happy New Year.
I’ve done this for 8 consecutive New Year’s Eves now (ever since I live with my Mexican husband) and every year 10-11 of my wishes came true. There was always one or two that didn’t come true. While I believe that this is a pretty good rate, 2016 shall be the year were all our wishes come true!!
Write down your wishes/goals so you can remember to go over them at the end of this year. Here are mine:
I wish for..
…inner peace for all humans on this planet as with inner peace world peace can be restored
…overall health for my family, friends and myself
…deep happiness for my family, friends and myself
…my marriage to continue to be filled with love and understanding
…more patience and compassion with my children so they must never doubt that I love them unconditionally
…my children to feel joy every single day
…Green Healthy Cooking to grow to a degree it can generate a fair income for all the invested work hours
…my husband’s efforts at work to be rewarded
…my husband and I to be able to take our kids to see their Mexican grandma and Mickey Mouse in L.A.
…inspiration for many new wonderful recipes
…many play dates, brunches, lunches and dinner parties to enjoy with friends and family
…me to be able to manage my time in a way there is time left to read…..not about blogging, food, photography, marketing or child raising, discipline, etc….just literature!
I encourage you to make your own list and to visualize all your wishes and goals and to work towards their fulfillment. If you want to make sure not to loose the list and if you don’t mind it being public I recommend you post it in the comments here. I will post the link to this recipe post again on Social Media on December 31 as a reminder to all of us to go threw our list :)
