Whats for dinner?

I'm a planning person. Maybe a little overboard but I don't see the harm in it. I could have much worse character traits right?

I wrote about how I meal plan each week here. Each Sunday I was thinking of sharing what I've cooked and the recipes I've used.

I know this blog is kind of a teaching blog but then again I have a lot of interests I kind of like adding some other things on here about my life, clothes, running, food, and my travel escapades. They are all things I enjoy!

Do you think I should keep adding some variety or just stick to teaching topics? I'm not sure what I'm leaning towards so please give me some feedback!

Sunday (Easter):
Went to a Ray's baseball game with my family. So fun!

On a very long traffic filled drive home Phil and I decided to stop at Hooters rather than go home and cook. We only eat out once a week and we actually skipped eating out Friday so it all worked out. We didn't cheat!


  • Quick, easy, and pretty good. I didn't add enough honey so very balsamic tasting but I did marinate them in balsamic overnight 
Baked Sweet Potatoes
  • Just put on baking sheet in the oven for about an hour and add butter, powered sugar, and cinnamon! Phil just does salt and pepper but that can't be as yummy as powered sugar!!
Steamfresh Veggies


Fresh Baked Grouper
  • I can't find the recipe I used but heres what I did:
    • Turn on oven to 350 degrees
    • Place grouper on baking sheet
    • Squeeze some lemon juice all over the fish
    • Put butter on top.. a Paula Dean amount of butter. I wasn't skimpy
    • Shake some italian bread crumbs on top
    • Bake for about 15-20 minutes!
  • My dad is a fisherman (on his free time) and when we met up for the Ray's game he brought me some of his fresh fish. The recipe was delicious, highly recommend! Could use with frozen fish too.
Brown Rice
  • I love my rice cooker. It is the only way I have found that I can cook decent rice. Put it in for 30 minutes and out comes fluffy rice! 


Refried bean, Black bean, Corn, and Cheese Quesadillas, inspired by this Kraft recipe 
  • Easy, yummy. Not any super amazing or flavorful but its a quick cheap meal that I'm sure we will make again. Had them for lunch today too actually with the leftover beans/corn we had.  
Minestrone Soup
  • My mom actually made this. I'm very lucky I have a mom who still thinks of me when she cooks and shares! She brings me lots of her leftovers and extra goodies for my fridge and freezer. I'm even luckier all her food is so tasty! Took it out of the freezer the night before and just had to heat it up.
Dinner out! We decided to go to a southern style buffet full of home cooked food. Yummo!

Grilled Chicken Stuffed with Feta Cheese
  • Just cut a slice down the middle of the chicken and put feta inside. Could use toothpicks to hold chicken back together. Grilled in pan or on grill until chicken is cooked through.
Orzo with Feta and Tomatoes 
  • One of my old roommates made this and it's creamy but tomatoes are a good balance of acidity. Really good! 
  • It's yummy hot or cold so have it hot for dinner and put in fridge and can eat anytime for a snack or side dish.
Peas (Can you guess what my favorite veggie is?)

What have you been having for dinner? Remember to leave a comment about your opinion on to stick to teaching topics or add some variety.
