I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. When it’s snowy and frightful outside and you are stuck inside the house for days on end, there’s only so much to do. One of the most fun options you have is to EAT!
So today’s What I Ate Wednesday is all about how I tried not to eat the entire contents of my cabinets while we were home bound for so many days. I was moderately successful on the day in question. One of the other days may have involved ice cream. And hamburgers. Hey, all in moderation, right?
You know I love my pancakes when I have a little extra time in the mornings so I definitely made that happen. It was so cold for most of those days that I had a little trouble dragging myself out of bed so once I made my pancakes, I jumped back under my blanket and had breakfast in bed. A girl could get used to this!
As always when I’m a wee bit bored, I tend to want to eat a whole lot more so, despite my big plate of pancakes, I was more than ready for lunch a few hours later. I took advantage of being at home to make cheese and spinach quesadillas. They’re one of my favorite foods, and I enjoyed these with a big dollop of sour cream and a huge salad on the side.
Snack time was another bowl of this stuff.
I finally ran out a few days ago, and yesterday I tried to pick up another container at the grocery store. Apparently the Key Lime as gone the way of the Vanilla-no where to be found! Do not even get me started on how much I dislike Wal-Mart. I would seriously love to live near a good grocery store.
Dinner was another creation by Skinnytatse. I think I just need to become an advertisement for her recipes. I love everything she makes! The latest creation was Shrimp Creole, and it was delicious but a little spicy! I try really hard not to be a wimp when it comes to spicy food, but I don’t always succeed.
It’s not much to look at, but it’s wonderful! I served it over wild rice. It would’ve been better with brown rice, but we had a little issue with my stock in the pantry. I’ll spare you the details. Trust me!
The rest of the evening involved banana bread and hot chocolate by the fire, but, alas, I forgot to snap a picture. Just know that it was warm and cozy, and I’m already wishing for another snow day despite the cabin fever and my insatiable appetite. It may be a long winter!
Do you tend to snack a lot when you’re bored? Do you ever treat yourself to breakfast in bed?
