Dragon Warrior Po's Secret Ingredient Soup.... well, sort of

What makes a family meal special? The "secret ingredient" :)

Mr. Ping: The secret ingredient is... nothing!
Po: Huh?
Mr. Ping: You heard me. Nothing! There is no secret ingredient.
Po: Wait, wait... it's just plain old noodle soup? You don't add some kind of special sauce or something?
Mr. Ping: Don't have to. To make something special you just have to believe it's special.

Tonight, for dinner, we had "Dragon Warrior Po's Secret Ingredient Soup"... what is the secret ingredient? Imagination and believing it's the coolest dinner EVER!

I just told the kids that it was Po's soup, gave them chopsticks, did a bunch of "kung fu" moves (really, Tae Bo moves thanks to Billy Blanks) and laughed a lot (and took pictures)

The "secret" soup...

He tried and succeeded...

She tried and succeeded...

He used the spoon... then mom helped him try the chopsticks! :)

The "real" secret to Po's soup - Ramen soup and a little bit of imagination!

:) Gotta love being a kid!

Such as you -- imagination with soup for Po, and a heart a passion to stay like a child FOREVER!!! You are amazing daughter #1 -- I love you and am proud of you!!!! ga
