Hey hey hey! I love that it’s Wednesday. I’d love it more if it was Friday … but hey, this will do
As always, a big “thanks darlin!” goes out to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday. It’s one of my favorite blogging parts of the week!
This is what I ate on Monday, June 4. (I originally typed May there. Someone needs to catch up and figure out what month it is!)
This has been a regular menu item recently. I had two poached eggs on top of a multigrain bagel thin. This week’s had a light layer of cream cheese for some extra ooomph on a sleepy Monday morning. For those of you who have asked … the reason I can get the eggs so perfectly symmetrical (a bonus for someone with slight OCD) is because I have an egg poacher. It’s probably one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I had a glass of orange juice on the side. Random fact: whenever I see a picture of someone’s breakfast with a glass of OJ on the side, I automatically hear an announcer’s voice saying “as part of a balanced breakfast” like they used to say in sugary cereal TV commercials. Weird, I know.
Usually I would have some sort of a snack in the middle of the morning, or at least a cup or two of David’s Tea at work, but on Monday I didn’t have anything! Strange. I came home for lunch and whipped up a tuna salad wrap. I mixed canned light tuna (packed in water) with some Greek yogurt, threw in some shredded cheese, and put it into a whole wheat tortilla. I added some color (and veggies!) with carrots on the side.
Supper was incredibly unclassy. I ate it out of a large measuring cup. As you can see, it was perfect for hanging onto while watching TV from the comfort of my couch. In my sweats. I’m a real class act. Sorry I’m not sorry. It’s a little tough to see what’s in the measuring cup … so here’s the explanation. I started off with toasted buckwheat (my first time making it!), then added steamed brussel sprouts, edamame, grilled chicken breast, and a dollop of my usual Greek yogurt. I mixed it all up and it looked really disgusting. But it really hit the spot! Even if it was in the lamest dish I own I really did have normal plates and bowls. But I chose the measuring cup. Do you ever eat your meals out of weird dishes? When I used to make Kraft Dinner back in the day, I ate it right out of the pot…
That’s another WIAW in the books. There’s not a lot of vegetables in there, I realize. Whoops. Next time?
Have a lovely day, guys! The week is almost over!
