Want to know a secret? I am honestly a laughable mess in the kitchen. Seriously, I’m not trying to be humble- it’s true! I really enjoy home cooked meals (not so much the clean up after) , and I know the value of making meals at home vs eating out every night, not just in dollar but in my family’s overall nutrition. Plus, I like to think of meal times at home as a way of getting everyone in the family social with one another! Talking over prepping, giggling over messes, encouraging the kids’ efforts, and celebrating our successful dishes around the table. More times than not, the family working together helps save me from making every single meal a disaster LOL…. My husband is better at baking, my youngest really picks out some great recipes, my son is the resident chopper/dicer, and my oldest… well… she takes after me HAHA. What can I say, I just don’t have a chef’s touch! But I like to prepare meals for my fam anyway! How are you in the kitchen? Share your favorite dish in the comments below!
This week, we cooked up some pretty great dishes so far, and I’m sharing them with you in today’s blog post.

My Family’s Dinner Plans this Week
Every week, I share my family’s dinner plan and a meal planning tip. Here’s this week’s! We chose some from our BOD library, and some from our fit club weekly meal plan (which I put together for my clients each week to coincide with their nutrition plan & fitness program).

My Meal Planning Tip of the Week
This week’s tip is about remembering your favorites! When planning meals for your family, especially if you have a few picky eaters, it can be super helpful to keep new-found as well as all-time favorites in rotation. Any time my hubby tastes something we cooked for dinner and says something like “oh wow – this is really good” with his eyebrows raised up in pleasant surprise… I’m saving that puppy!! And when BOTH hubs and kids all are looking to make sure there are still leftovers the next day? Oh that’s also a sign in my book!
This week I rotated back in a combination of a new family favorite from last month’s meal plan. We’ve made a honey and chicken pineapple skewer recipe a few times before and really enjoyed it, but we usually make it with red onion and bell peppers and a rosemary thyme marinade. When we tried the skewers with jamaican jerk seasoning – holy taste buds, batman! We LIKED! So, this week I revisited this dish with a couple of swaps to keep it fun –
- We used the Jamaican Jerk seasoning blend again on pork instead of chicken
- We used Mango instead of Pineapple (this was sooo yummy to me)!
- We skipped the onion and just did bell peppers (red, yellow, orange).
- We served the skewers with buttered brown rice which complimented the sweet mango and seasoning of the pork so so nicely!
