Good Afternoon! Well, posting this morning didn’t happen did it?
I apologize to those of you who click over to the blog hoping for a new post of inspiration or a laugh in the mornings just to find the previous day of news featured. Some days I am great about getting material up bright and early, while others I just go with the flow and post whenever I can. I’m working on trying to stick to more of a schedule for ya!
To spare you from a long story, I woke up feeling under the weather this morning. The server was slow. Migranes are the worst. The end.
But, I’m feeling much better now! To celebrate, let’s move right onto What I Ate Wednesday, highlighting a full day of eats. (It is time for lunch yet?)
What I Ate
I returned to an old, pretty friend of a milk frother for breakfast. That was exciting, but the star of the meal goes to one of my favorite cereals.
Kashi Organic Promise Island Vanilla topped in almond butter with organic skim milk.
That did a great job of holding me over until I started thinking about lunch after a couple of hours. Ten minutes later, there it was.
Another Amy’s soup for the win!
Amy’s Organic Lentil Soup with a side of Scott’s leftover chopped salad.
Spinach, cucumbers, yellow and red peppers, banana peppers, carrots, black olives, and ground pepper drizzled in balsamic vinegar.
A couple of hours later, I got into a predictable snack with a new twist.
Dill Pickle Wheat Thin crackers with Sabra Pine Nut hummus.
Yup, dill pickle flavor. Don’t knock it ’til you try it, ya’ll.
My day flew by and before I knew it my friend Alex was at my door to pick me up to go to a concert in Plymouth! We stopped by her place first and I got to meet a new puppy friend of her’s named Lincoln.
He has similar facial structures and markings as Roadie! I wanted to eat him up right then and there.
Instead, I settled for another snack of pretzel crisps and hummus… (again). I might have a problem.
Just after 6 p.m. we left with her boyfriend for the Hillsong Young and Free concert!
Some of you may have heard of this mega youth ministry from Australia, but I know a lot of you haven’t. Check out their story. I love their music and everything about them!
Ready to eat anything, the three of us drove back to our home area and Scott and our friend Adam joined us for a late dinner. We chose Bar Louie for their dollar burgers on Tuesdays!
We ordered an (un-pictured) appetizer of chips with a trio of salsa, queso, and guacamole dips that lasted all of two minutes.
And, just so you know, all burgers don’t have to be “burgers”. Alex and I both ordered the same exact turkey burger, bunless, with added vegetables like grilled onions, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, and a ton of lettuce with a side of steamed broccoli.
As soon as it got in front of me, I pulled my classic move of cutting it all up, covering it in pepper, and making one big turkey burger mosh salad.
We didn’t discuss it until we were about to leave, but somehow that strategy of eating meals came up in natural conversation. Alex shared how it freaks her out when her food touches, and I shared that I almost always cut it all up and make it some kind of salad or casserole. If it has a lot of veggies, anyways.
I don’t do that with all food, or at nice restaurants, but if I order a turkey burger without the bun and a ton of toppings, you better believe that’s what will happen! Am I alone here?
Question of the Day
• Does it give you the heebie jeebies when your food touches, or are you one to chop it and mix it up?
Like I mentioned above, I usually like to chop everything up before I eat it. I don’t necessarily mix it together, but if there are a lot of vegetables involved I usually do and make one big salad. Ha, I know some of you are cringing reading this! To each it’s own I guess.
