Happy Monday loves!
I'm so excited about today's post because I feel like I am sharing a special part of me with you all, through food. If you knew me and you came to my house, I would FEED you fat. Yes, I love to cook for people and I enjoy watching others enjoy meals I prepare. Many of you know I am Jamaican and one cliche that is true to Jamaicans is that we eat Jerk Chicken. Not everyday, but it is definitely one of our most known meals. I have to say though, it is one messy meal to prepare, but totally worth it because I had my new Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths which was only $4.99, in 2 pack counts and comes in four colors, grey, mint, coral, and navy. It takes cleaning to a whole new level so I could do even more. 

I always make easy recipes for you all so you can simply follow my steps, adjust as you please and enjoy. Here's what you will need to make this yummy Jerk Chicken (serves two)

1lb chicken breast
1/2 lemon
12 Pimento Seeds (1tsp powdered pimento)
4 stalks of thyme
1 tbsp browning (or paprika)
Jerk Seasoning (find it at local Jamaican/Caribbean or Oriental market/store)
Mix all of the ingredients together, let it marinate for at least 1 hour (overnight is better). 
 Remove thyme and pimento seeds and put it on the grill or in the oven. Grill both sides until cooked. If you use oven, approximately 45 minutes at 350 degrees, first 35 minutes, lower to 250 degrees for next 10 minutes. 
 While your chicken is being cooked, make your way to prepare a yummy salad. 
For my salad (serves 2) I used:
4 cups of spinach
2 cups of mixed salad
1/2 roma tomato
1/2 mango (sliced)
3 mini sweet bell peppers
1/4 cup of chopped mint
 Mix it all together, how pretty are the colors? I do not know about you but I love a colorful salad. 
I also love that my new Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth gives me non-scratch scrubbing power with the wiping and drying function of a dish cloth. On one side I have dish cloth feel, on the other is the Scotch-Brite scrubbing dots that gives me great cleaning power to scrub away the mess from chopping my jerk chicken once it is cooked. That's a 2-in-one if you ask me and bang for the buck! yes please. 
Toss salad on a plate and add chopped jerk chicken on top. Serve with love. I know you will enjoy if you give it a try. Loves, there are also some other awesome recipes and cleaning tutorials for you to enjoy here
 Cooking is something I definitely enjoy, but cleaning up is really not my forte. Thanks to the new Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth my cleaning routine is much better. I also wanted to share with you all a kitchen hack I always saw my granny do while I was growing up. She would boil her dish cloths on the stove top for about 10-15 minutes with lemon and then hand rinse and put to dry. This really helps to get rid of germs instantly and I do the same with my dish cloths often. All you need is:
Two slices of lemons, 2 cups of water per dish cloth, set to boil, cool, rinse, and put to dry. 
To find these new Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths, head to your local Target and go straight to the kitchen cleaning aisle and there you will find four beautiful colors to choose from. And the best part? You can save now on Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloths with this cartwheel offer here from 06/19-06/25.
