Sorry…NO idea where that one came from! I hope you are all having a fantastic week so far. And well, I hope I didn’t scare too many of you away with yesterday’s rather blunt post. While I’d like to say I was off to wino dreamland shortly after hitting publish, the truth is I’m running on about 3 cups of coffee AND a can of Zevia right about now! #fakeittillyoumakeit #ordieofaheartattack #eyetwitch 😉
Sooooo, how about we talk about food while I’m still alive? Sound good? I mean, it IS Wednesday which could mean only one thing…
Big thanks to my veggie-lovin’ and chickpea squeezing mama, for
giving me something to live for hosting our weekly shenanigans! Be sure to hop on over to Peas & Crayons and check out all the link ups for this week’s What I Ate Wednesday! But first, allow me to start the party off with some rarely seen weekEND eats!
I woke up Saturday morning feeling fully rested (oh the memories) and hit the gym first thing for some kind of workout that I can’t actually remember right now! #goldfish All I know is that when I got back to the house, I was ready to gnaw my arm off!
Luckily this plate of scrambled eggs, onions, and beet greens topped with avocado was ready within minutes…and not only delicious, but also my two favorite colors!
All washed down with a
cup MUG-o-Joe…and oh look at that, my shiny new iPhone says hi! 😉
I realized after the fact, but since I was up and down and in and out of the house for the better part of the day, lunch was more of a series of snacks than an actual meal, but that’s fine by me…especially since it all started with this EPIC deliciousness…
That my friends, would be a PB&J graham sandwich…a childhood favorite brought back from the past and is very much here to stay…especially with blueberry jam! 😀
There was also some cookie dough #questbarporn involved while in the car…
And a sweet and crisp Lady Alice apple which I picked up when in ATL last weekend! Anyone ever tried them? They’re REALLY good! Kinda like a Honeycrisp only a little less sweet!
Then, before gracing my mom and dad with my presence at dinner that night, I ate a carrot the size of a small child…but I forgot to take a picture…so hmm, maybe I didn’t! 😉
Dinner was my mama’s mouth-watering beef & bean enchiladas (one of the first recipes I learned when I moved out the house a million years ago) topped with sour cream, avocado, and salsa along with some corn tortillas topped with warm queso blanco
With HALF a bottle of gold star…I was so full from dinner, I ended up letting my dad finish it! Ha!
And that’s it! A full Saturday’s eats…well, along with two-ish un-pictured liters (33oz) of water! By the time I made it home a couple of hours after dinner, I was heavy-lidded and ready for bed…only to fall asleep and begin a week of insomnia battles! More on that later though…there is HOPE on the horizon!
But today, I’d like to take a minute to wish my mom and dad a HAPPY anniversary!! Kind of an old pic, but it’s my favorite! Thirty one years ago, they said their “I do’s and forever will’s” and are even happier and more in love today! <3
What was one of your favorite snacks as a kid?
I was a BIG lover of cinnamon toast or (don’t laugh) crackers with Cheeze Whiz! 😯
Are you more of a meal or snacky type of person when it comes to lunch?
I have to say, most days I’d rather just grab & go. And when I do sit down,
it’s mostly with a snackPLATE!
