Who is having me over for dinner?

go to dinner meal

Alright everyone, what is for dinner tonight and am I invited? Haha, only kidding. Although this post will be a fun little discussion, especially for those that love to cook, like myself. I have previously made a post asking what is everyone’s go to breakfast meals? and that turned out to be a good way to get everyone talking and sharing recipes, etc, so this time I want to know what is everyone’s go to dinner? more specifically are you one to cook every night, or do you prefer dining out? I know meal planning will be something someone may mention, which is a great point because I do it too, but I will speak on that in a separate blog post, for now let us keep it simple and yet fun! I will have bullet point questions for everyone to answer and feel free to ask me question as well, or to share recipes, pictures, videos, etc.. whatever you want about your dinner time meal. 

  1. What is your quickest recipe that you make for dinner?
  2. what is a family favorite meal?
  3. Are you one who prefers to cook or dine out? why?
  4. what is something you want to learn to make?
  5. do you use recipes offline for ideas or experiment in the kitchen?
  6. who is the better chef at your house?
  7. How do you decide what you are in the mood for when you cook?
  8. Do you or your family tend to cook more Italian, vegan, Chinese, American dishes or something else?
  9. How did you learn how to cook?
  10. Do you make enough for leftovers or just enough for the days meal?
Hopefully most of these questions can be answered by all of you. I enjoy cooking, and learning new recipes off Pinterest. LOL. (shh). For those of you who may want to know my answers to these questions:
  1. My quickest meal I have made for dinner was a wrap of some sorts
  2. I cook for myself these days, LOL since my partner lives out of state, I have yet to cook something that would be my favorite yet! LOL still figuring this out.
  3. I prefer to cook. I am not a fast food lover, although I do love trying to new pubs in other towns and venturing into different restaurants. 
  4. I want to learn to make a mean lasgana!mmmm!
  5. I use recipes offline but twist them into my own thing.
  6. I am the best chef! hahaha although if I was living with my mom, she would be a great chef 😀
  7. I hardly ever come to terms with what I am in the mood for, it just depends on what I have in the fridge and how long it takes to cook it and if I have other plans going on. 
  8. I tend to cook more American food dishes.
  9. I pretty much taught myself with experimenting in the kitchen with different things
  10. I meal plan, so if I do have leftovers it works out fine. Normally I do make enough for leftovers.
Can’t wait to hear some of your answers!!!

Hello! College graduate in exercise science and ACSM Certified Personal Trainer. My blog has all kinds of fun topics, something for everyone who is anyone that involves themselves with fitness. I like to think of fitness as a confidence booster, something to make us feel good and look good & pushes us to do things that make us feel more productive, unstoppable and stronger mentally and physically. My blog focuses on building people, and helping people see their true potential, while also sharing my journey with workouts, competing with powerlifting, and sharing how to's on workouts, so you step inside the gym with more knowledge. I don't know everything but I am on a voyage to build my character, my strength and work on my weaknesses --- with awesome people in my corner who support me and my goals. I plan on being your cheerleader, friend, coach and trainer all-in-one and most of all, I want to be your listener, the person who can listen and gain more knowledge about you and learn what makes fitness important to you; what's your why! (Your why will carry you to the finish line). It's important to have purpose for something, because you will need that purpose when you start to give up on yourself or want to quit. "Don't let the fire that guides you, dim" - Shay-lon Besides the fitness stuff, I reside in Ohio, love dogs and love pizza. Typical 26 year old trying to build an empire that brings out the best in others and makes me the best person I can be in all aspects in my life. Before I die, I want a reason to live, and I was given that reason each day I am able to wake up --- I have learned to not take life for granted and to explore as much as possible because to live with zero regrets would be fantastic!

  1. Omg this is such a fun post! My favourite food to cook is probably Italian or Mexican food. And I usually tend to make whatever recipes I see online but I add some random stuff I think will taste good with it. I started cooking really recently cos I have never really been interested in cooking before 🙂

    1. mmmmm I love me some Italian and Mexican! Such good food! I guess I will stop by your place then 😛 I am happy that you got into cooking, it isn’t everybody’s thing, my partner doesn’t enjoy cooking but I think it something to do when you don’t feel like dining out, especially since dining out all the time can become very expensive and repetitive sometimes. Good stuff!

      1. Yeah exactly dining out is just eating a lot of the same stuff most of the time and eating a lot of it is pretty unhealthy so cooking at home is a great alternative. Yeah I mean not everyone is into cooking but I guess you need to kind of be interested in food in general to be interested in cooking but for me it’s pretty fun and helps me get my mind off things
