Sunday Visit: Come to the Table

People who know us know that we love having folks over. We love opening our home and sharing our lives. From the beginning of our marriage, we’ve loved cooking together and  gathering around the table with family and friends, new and old, from all corners of the globe…toasting life and love as we have spent time fellowshipping with others.

It is our prayer that through your generosity, you will have recipes to share with others and make new memories of your own, build community with others and make an eternal difference on the lives of our children as we bring them to their forever homes and invite them to come to our table.

Today I want to share the blog of the Harrison Family who is in the midst of adopting two children.

Along with some other bloggers, I was asked to contribute a few recipes by a good friend who put the cookbook  together to help the Harrisons raise funds. Their situation is urgent – one of their children needs life saving surgery.

Head over to their blog and read more of their story.  And if you don’t want to wait for your cookbook to arrive, you can try this recipe from Come to the Table today.
Tinga de Pollo

1 whole fryer chicken, cooked and shredded
3 T canola oil
1/2 onion, diced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
6-8 roma tomatoes, halved
2 chicken bouillon cubes
2 adobo chilis
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and tomatoes. Cook until tomatoes are coming apart (about 15 minutes). In a blender combine tomato mixture, bouillon, and chilies. Return to skillet with shredded chicken. Heat and serve on tostadas with lettuce, refried black beans(recipe in this cookbook), salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and whatever else you may like to pile on. Remaining chilies can be frozen for next use by freezing them in ice cube trays and once frozen, transfer to ziplock.
Note from the cookbook: The first time I ate this I thought I was going to accidentally eat my hand it was so good…it’s messy, it’s a little time consuming but oh man…it is worth it. When you make this recipe, pray for the Bult’s in Mexico..they are starting an orphanage there and need your prayers.
Happy Sunday, friends.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
