Perfect Dinner

I am seriously going to miss cooking when I’m up at school. It is so relaxing to be in the kitchen and really is a stress-reliever. I love creating something delicious and healthy and feeling great about all the ingredients that went into it. Dinner tonight was amazing–definitely 5 stars! But before we get to that…


I munched on some kettle corn and a few berries while reading this afternoon. That was probably the best strawberry I’ve ever eaten, it was amazingly sweet.


This was seriously the perfect dinner! It included everything: protein, whole grains, veggies, and fruit! Any meal that includes fruit is a winner in my book.

I made Jamaican-Jerk Fish by marinating tilapia in green onions, jalepeno, ginger, vinegar, worceshire sauce, salt, oil, thyme, and allspice. I grilled it up with a side of brown rice and steamed broccoli. And the best part—-Brown Sugar Glazed Pineapple. This was unbelievable! I just coated some pineapple with brown sugar and grilled it for about 10 minutes. It was so soft and sweet and perfect. This would make an outstanding dessert, especially with some vanilla ice cream!

The flavor combinations of this meal were amazing. I loved the kick the fish had from the jalapeno combined with the sweetness of the pineapple. The rice was great to soak up any extra juices and the broccoli added another great texture to the mix. All in all it was perfection!


I continued the perfect food theme with dessert. A Hawaiian Blizzard from DQ made with vanilla soft serve, banana, pineapple, and toasted coconut. Mmmmmm. I ate this while watching Obama’s speech and the final night of the DNC. It would be so exciting to be there! 

And that ends my great day filled with amazing food. Can’t ask for anything more! Let’s just hope tomorrow is as good!

Goodnight all!

    Tilapia = my favorite fish. Therefore, this post = my new favorite dinner 🙂 I love the idea of the brown sugar glazed pineapple! Hot pineapple is my absolute favorite way to eat fruit!

    Mmm…DQ with toasted coconut?! Amazing. I had coconut sorbet tonight from Whole Foods – I am seriously in love with it. The brand is Ciao Bella – if you see it, you must try it! I promise you will not be disappointed!

    Hope you have a great night!
