It's finally Wednesday but this week is dragging. Perhaps it's because I am still bitter with some work stuff from last week or because I am ready for this long weekend - but is it Friday yet?
Now is the time where I say, "Who is ready for #WIAW?", because I have nothing else to say. For those of you that are newer here, What I ate Wednesday for me is actually What I am eating this Week. At the beginning of the week when I grocery shop I plan for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, and 3 dinners. We rotate all of the meals throughout the week so we are not eating the same thing every day. Of course, this does happen sometimes when a delicious meal is made!
Also, I should note that I don't stage these meals. These are all foods I actually eat day in and out. I try to remain conscious about my food choices, but sometimes I fail - like this day I ate an entire box of mac 'n cheese. It happens! So join in the fun and linkup here.
Breakfast - I am a creature of habit and have been eating cereal most mornings for the past few weeks. How do I break myself? Do you have any breakfast items that are a go to for you?
Snack 1 - Again, creature of habit! Chobani flips are just the best thing ever. Whenever I am craving Nutella, I just eat these. AND I crave Nutella all. the. time.
Lunch - Hey oh, something new. This broccoli soup is so easy you could make it with your eyes closed. Top it with some oyster crackers and it is amazing. Then I tried to make this new peanut ginger salad dressing because I am missing my favorite salad from Indy. I need to find some place around here that might have a similar dressing. Anyway, it was pretty tasty but I need to make a few tweaks. For some reason I wanted to type twerks - not cool!
Snack 2 - Who doesn't love chips and salsa? I could eat this for all meals throughout the day. I mean, it would satisfy my intake of veggies, grains, and I could stretch it to include my fruits too. Besides that, I am trying out several salsas to find one I like. Why do most of them include sugar? So not needed. Chicos Pico is my favorite all time salsa, but you can't buy it around my neck of the woods.
Dinner - I recently purchased all. the. curry from Penzeys and I don't know what to do with it. I looked up a Butter Chicken recipe and it's AMAZING. Look at all the spices I purchased. I posted this on Instagram and now I need your help with some more recipes. Help a girl out!
Dessert - Because dessert is the most important meal of the day... I know you thought it was breakfast, but you are wrong! Strawberry cobbler, or any cobbler, have been a basic week after week. We top our berries with almond flour, cinnamon, and a little butter to brown it up. Get in my belly!
What are you eating this week? Any go to recipes you could recommend?
