Today’s recipe is for my husband, it is one of his favorites, and I am sharing it in honor of him, because without all his help, and everything he does to pick up the slack for me while I am blogging, Eazy Peazy Mealz would not exist.
I have a secret to let you in on…well not actually a secret. I have been blogging for 2 years now. Over 2 years actually.
I can hardly believe it. I have learned so much in the past 2 years, especially about how much I do not know. This blogging world is a crazy place to be. I have had some hits, I have had a lot of misses. And I have made so many amazing friends.
I have also pushed my family and they have pushed me. Blogging is so much more than a job. It is like a little piece of your heart and soul gets poured into every photo, every dish, every post. And that can take a toll. Luckily for me, whenever I seem to drop the ball around the house, or with our family life, my husband is there to catch it. He picks up my slack, and really helps out a lot.
Take a look at this little behind the scenes blogging video, that my hubby is in! Don’t mind the huge zit I have! Plus we have a fun surprise in the video!
As you can see from the video my hubby is not afraid to jump in and do whatever is needed, even cleaning! I can’t believe how often men are portrayed as not helping around the house, that is simply not the case.
In our house my hubby does WAY more laundry than I will ever do. He is the king of taking out the garbage. He does dishes, makes beds, tidies, and more. He is such a good example to my kids that we all help out, and that it is not “mom’s” job to clean the house, we all contribute.
Now, he isn’t perfect, and there are times when I have to remind him that I need help. But despite his busy schedule and demanding work, he really is amazing, and a positive role model for my kids when it comes to cleaning.
According to the Swiffer Cleaning Index, Dads today are pitching in nearly two times more than their Dads did. And Swiffer is celebrating Dad’s who help with the “behind the clean” moments in our lives. And we are joining in on that celebration. They sent us 2 Big Green Boxes to help!
What was in the box?
The Swiffer Wet Jet, refill Power Pads, and cleaning solution. The Swiffer Wet Jet is an amazingly convenient and quick way to clean the floor, letting my hubby pitch in with mopping, without losing out on family time. They call it the #SwifferEffect.
I LOVE the philosophy Swiffer shares, they design products to help busy families clean quickly and effectively so they can spend time on things that really matter. And it cleans awesome too. It’s an all-in-one mopping solution that traps and locks dirt and grime instead of pushing it around.
Why 2 boxes?
Well, my husband is not the only dad out there who helps clean up those everyday messes, and the second box was sent so we could pay it forward and surprise another deserving dad with this “no sweat” way of pitching in. As you saw in the video, we shared this fun tool with my brother in law!
Pretty fun to see right?

I just love how much men are crossing those outdated gender role lines, and taking an active part in the household. And that Swiffer is recognizing them. That is something that should be celebrated, so let’s celebrate those Dads with this tasty, Dad approved ceviche.
When I told my husband I wanted to do a post celebrating him, and everything he does, and I wanted to know his favorite recipe so I could share it in the post, he said, “Ceviche”!
I was so excited about this because I had forgotten how amazing it is, and what a wonderfully fresh and tasty snack or meal it can be.
Plus it is really not hard to make. It looks and tastes impressive, without too much hassle.
And it is easy to customize. If you don’t want too much heat, cut back on jalapeno. If you want more, add in a little more. Add fresh carrots, other seafood, or whatever you love best.
