Announcement – New Blog Series!

I have an exciting announcement today! I’ve decided to start a new series on the blog called Foodie Friday, where I will be sharing a new recipe every Friday. I’m really excited to share some of my favorite recipes with you. The recipes will be family friendly and so full of flavor that no one in your house will notice that they’re eating healthy, not even your husband.

We have a crazy busy weekend ahead with 3 separate kid birthday parties on Saturday plus a family dinner on Sunday. I also plan to run a 12 miler Saturday morning and stretch things out in hot yoga with my hubby on Sunday. We tend to use Saturday evening to grill up the best meal of the week. We are both home and have more time to spend preparing a good dinner. Somewhere in there we have to get yard work done and try to make the house look less lived in too.  I’m grateful we have no plans tonight except eating some pizza and watching a movie with the boys. I might even have a glass or 2 of wine. Cheers to the weekend!

Back to the recipe! Some of my favorite meals are made on the grill. We tend to use it all year round. Thank goodness Chad is a good sport and will still bbq even in the dead of winter. The boys can be picky eaters at times but love they fish. I try to incorporate fish or seafood in our menu weekly. We recently tried grilling the fish in pockets on the grill and they where a hit.

Easy Grilled Fish Pockets


  • 4 5oz pieces of frozen tilapias or fish of choice
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow  bell pepper chopped
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 lemon cut into 4 wedges
  • Seasoning of choice ( I used lemon pepper)
  • 4 pieces of aluminum foil


  1. Start barbecue at medium heat.
  2. Place each tilapia in center of a piece of tinfoil. Drizzle them with olive oil. (one tsp per piece)
  3. Squeeze one lemon wedge over fish and sprinkle it with seasoning.
  4. Divide peppers and tomato between each pocket and fold the tinfoil.
  5. Fold up the edges so that it’s completely sealed and no steam will escape, creating a loose tent.
  6. Place on top rack in grill for 10-15 minutes or until the fish becomes flaky and cooked through.

The juice will seam the fish and create a great sauce. Serve warm with wild grain rice.
