What I Ate Wednesday

Happy Hump Day!! Although today is better than the usual hump day because there's only one more workday left!! Yayyyy!

I am super excited to present another "What I Ate Wednesday" because I've gotta tell you that today was a good food day for me....a REALLY good food day :-)

As usual, I started my day off with a warm lemon water with a pinch of cayenne. I wanted to start off healthy and good because I had a feeling that some over-indulgence was about to happen.

I knew there would be a ton of temptation at my office potluck, so I had a really light breakie. I chopped up an apple and mixed it with a pinch of cinnamon. Then I warmed it in the microwave for 2 minutes and topped it with some of my homemade granola. Very easy and very tasty. Thanks Tina for the idea!

It was like a special little apple crisp!

Now on to lunch....there are no words to describe. Check it out.

Can you see my Orzo Spinach Greek Salad? Here is a close up of the final product from yesterday's post. I think it is one of my all-time favourite salads! I'm planning to make it again this weekend for Easter.

I can't even tell you how happy I am with this ~ delicious!!

Here is my, I mean plates. So yummy, so carb heavy :-) So worth it.

Some of my yummies included glazed carrots, creamy coleslaw, orzo spinach greek salad (of course!), tortellini in a rose sauce, hashbrown casserole, crockpot stuffing, pumpernickel with spinach dip and the best cheesy rice/veggie casserole I have EVER had.

Of course, I couldn't deny myself a taste of dessert. I had some fruit, Skor Trifle & a lemon square.


And finally my dinner. It's amazing that I made it that long. My belly was soooo full and I was soooo sleepy this afternoon. I wanted something super easy for dinner, so I just warmed up some leftover romano bean/veggie pie with cornmeal biscuits. Check out the recipe here. The only changes I made was that I added one yukon gold potato and used romano beans instead of black eye peas. It was a nice comforting meal while we continue to deal with this persistently cold, wet weather. 

It's not the most photogenic meal, but it was pretty darn good!

So there you have it. Another day full of amazing fact too many amazing eats ~ I had to put my stretchy pants on tonight ;-) !!
