Good Afternoon party people!
So… did Hump Day fly by for anyone else? Just me? Okay, cool.
In true Wednesday fashion, I have hopped back on the WIAW train and complied all of my Tuesday eats into one post. As long as you guys keep giving me good feedback on these weekly check-ins, I’ll keep doing them!
All right, lets skip the small talk and just jump right into it.
What I Ate
I had a goal of trying to picture new things yesterday. I can be a creature of habit and gravitate towards the same foods over and over, so for the sake of WIAW, I tried to think out of the box a little.
Breakfast seemed pretty simple, but it had been ages since I have blogged about something like this… so here we were.
Scrambled egg beaters with shredded cheese, turkey bacon, and a whole wheat English muffin with a little butter.
And, a large cup of coffee flavored with almond milk and a splash of flavored creamer, of course. Always.
That did the job and kept me full for a couple of hours before I got the craving for something sweet for a snack. Good news… I had plenty of fresh berries to go around.
Give me ALL the berries.
I worked at the computer for a while before getting hungry for lunch, and when that happened I raided our vegetable drawer for any feasible monster salad ingredients. Lucky for me, there were lots of those!
Baby spinach, spring mix, red, yellow and green peppers, cucumbers, shredded carrots, green olives, chick peas, feta cheese, ground pepper and a balsamic vinegar drizzle.
Remember my pep talk on spinach earlier this week? Boom.
While enjoying lunch, I couldn’t help but notice how gorgeous it was outside and used that as motivation to take Roadie for a long trail walk.
Four miles later, we both returned feeling happy and hungry.
I curbed my dinner appetite with a pear and a large (<- ? and slightly burned) serving of sweet potato fries.
Leave it to me to get distracted and forget about them cooking in the oven.
Burnt or not, I still loved them, and they did a great job of holding me over until dinner.
Since Scott arrived home earlier than normal, I started thinking about what we would be eating shortly after. While raiding our refrigerator again, I realized that I totally flaked out in the meat department on our last trip to the grocery store. Whoops!
The only protein that would even sort of make sense for what I was going for were a couple of Hot Italian Al Fresco chicken sausages.
So, I sliced them up and sauteed them with some sliced sweet peppers.
I couldn’t decide between fajitas and quesadillas, so I created a combination with whole wheat Nuevo Leon tortillas. (<- Thanks, Olga!)
I shredded some sharp cheddar cheese, then layered the sauteed chicken sausage and veggies on top of the tortilla with sliced tomatoes, fresh cilantro, and more cheese.
It looked wonderful, until I tried to fold it over and call it a quesadilla. I have a bit of a habit of overloading ingredients into wraps and sandwiches!
Whatever… it still tasted delicious, and was happy when Scott thought I used some version of “chorizo”. Sure did! 😉
With dinner at a regular time, we had enough of our evening left to relax and finally watched The Great Gatsby.
Scott requested a big bowl of buttery popcorn, so I heated that up along with a mini bag of Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop for me.
Both the movie and the late night snack were really, really good!
And there you have another week of WIAW eats. But before I go, I have a request slash question for you…
Beauty Tutorial Requests?
Over the past several months, I have received a lot of questions concerning beauty tips. Some were answered through my hair tutorials, and I have a few planned to share next week with you regarding spray tans and teeth whitening.
I figured I have enough material to make a whole week of it and am officially deeming next week: Housewife Glamour Beauty Week.
Coming up, you can expect to see a short series of beauty, hair, skin, makeup, and nails tips and tricks. And, to help fuel the fire and to hopefully deliver what you actually want to know, I ask you…
Is there anything beauty related that you are curious to know? A routine or tutorial you have questions on?
Feel free to use the comments section or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to make a suggestion. Thanks, ya’ll!
Have a great rest of your Wednesday!
