I don't usually cook dinner for my whole family. It's not that I wouldn't love to- it's just because history reminds me that for the majority of time, my family believes that what I'm making is "weird" or something that they wouldn't like to try. (aside from my mom- she tries everything) SURPRISE! Everyone enjoyed my turkey chili recipe, even my dad! (Yay me!)

Lesson learned: Keep trying till they like itโ€ฆ lol
