I can’t believe it’s Wednesday again! Pardon me for a second while I sound like an old person, but does anyone else feel like life is flying by? It’s going to be Christmas before we know it (no complaints there!)! I guess it’s a good thing I’m really enjoying life lately
Because it’s already Wednesday again, you know what time it is-What I Ate Wednesday! Our lovely host is Jenn from Peas and Crayons. I hope you all make a point to check out some of the link-ups over at her blog. It’s a great way to see what yummy food is circulating around the web today!
I was really excited for breakfast this morning because I knew I had something hiding in the pantry that I had saved for just this occasion-an empty peanut butter jar! I finally went through my jar of Cinnamon Raisin from Peanut Butter & Co., and was ready to have a slightly different breakfast this morning. I put peanut butter in my oatmeal every morning, but this is so much better for some reason. I have no idea why. Perhaps it’s because I have an internal age of 5 and novelties still excite me.
I added in an addition scoop of the Dark Chocolate peanut butter I got last week at Whole Foods, and topped it with an apple. The jar trapped the heat from the oatmeal and cooked the apples a bit. I definitely recommend you guys trying this combo. It was so good!
Some days work is so busy that lunch time sneaks up on me, and others I’m so hungry I feel like I glance at my computer clock every thirty seconds just waiting for it come around. Today was definitely a watch the clock kind of day. I was starving!
As soon as it was time, I built my wrap and heated up some soup. Since the weather has turned a little chilly, I’ve been craving soup. This is Progresso’s Italian Meatball. It’s one of my favorites. My wrap included sour cream, ham, cheese, spinach, and pickles. I put it all on a spinach tortilla type thing that I also got at Whole Foods last week. I don’t believe I showed you guys this particular purchase.
They’re pretty good, but, even if I had the opportunity, I’m not sure I’d buy them again. They’re kind of tough. You gotta try new things though
You guys know what’s coming next. Snack time is the same as always, and I am not ashamed for being a creature of habit in this case!
Yogurt bowl! Today’s flavor was Chobani Apple Cinnamon with my ususal mix-ins: apple, banana chips, Craisins, and Love Grown granola. Incidentally, I am almost out of my Love Grown and it’s going to be a sad day. Hopefully, I can stock up when I go home to visit next week!
Dinner is going to be this:
We are a household that likes Hamburger Helper. Yes, I know that’s a shameful secret I shouldn’t talk about. I use to make it about once a month. I didn’t do it more often because I knew it wasn’t the best thing to be putting in our bodies. The more I got to thinking about it, the more I came to realization that it’s not something we should probably ever eat so I stopped making it all together about a year ago. Well, last week I found this at Whole Foods (look how long the Whole Foods goodness is lasting!), and decided we had to try it! Tonight is the test. We’ll see if it’s as good as our old Hamburger Helper. Either way, I can at least be satisfied that it’s not bad for us (or as bad anyway!).
Well, I must go. I’m late for a very important date. Jillian is calling, and since I’ve been a bit of failure at the yoga challenge this week, I need to get with it before I have to report to you guys later this week. Have a great evening!
