WIAW: The Cheesy Edition

I LOVE cheese.

Something I actually used to convince myself I could take or leave back when I was counting calories…because I was convinced that it wasn’t really “worth” it in the end. But on the contrary…

Grilled Cheese

Because THIS was totally worth every melty gooey stringy bit of IT!!!

Sit back kids and enjoy, because today, I’m throwing MORE than just grilled cheese in your face…today is all about What I Ate Sunday Wednesday!

Grilled Cheese, Apples, & Carrots

After making it through my 12 hour on-call shift on Saturday, I woke up Sunday EVENING (another 10 hours of sleep, yo!), stumbled my way to the kitchen, and had the grill pan in my hand before I was even fully awake!

SWEET DREAMS ARE MADE OF CHEESE?

One slice of the BEST multigrain bread, buttered, halved and topped with fresh spinach and sharp white cheddar cheese…which kinda slid off the spinach and made for one cheesy mess, but omg, finger lickin’ good! And I guess there was a carrot and half an apple involved too…I don’t really remember! 😉

Thank God I had a decently sized meal BEFORE going into work because once I got there, I was busier than a one-armed bandit! As you guys know, I’m not much of a “lunch” person during the week, but when I started getting light-headed, I HAD to take a few breaks to throw something down my gullet!

Coffee

One cup of (3/4 caff…I’m in the BIG leagues now!) coffee around 11pm and another about 3am.

HOW DOES MOSES MAKE COFFEE? HEBREWS IT!

Apples & Carrots

I also had the other half of my apple and another freakishly huge carrot.

HOW DO YOU KILL A SALAD? GO FOR THE CARROT-ID ARTERY!

Greek Yogurt with M&M's

But come 4am, I had a stroke of absolute GENIUS! Because that? That right der would be half a container of my favorite plain Greek yogurt mixed with cream cheese extract (TJ Maxx score) and topped with…carrot cake and coconut m&m’s!

HOLY FREAKIN’ CHEESUS!!

Seriously, I died. Then I came back to life after a few minutes and took another bite. Then I died again. And well, here I am a ghost of a woman typing up my WIAW post so yeah, go figure! Whatta way to go! 😉

Pizza & Broccoli

After getting home at the end of the day night whatever, I was in the kitchen for approximately five minutes before this plate was devoured in less than FOUR!

Pilfered sausage pizza from the break room at work (Sarah’s not the only one with a penchant for scouting out free food!), eaten cold the way leftover pizza SHOULD be eaten alongside some steamed broccoli topped with chili flakes…hit the spot!

NOT MUSHROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT HERE!

Greek Yogurt & Peanut Bar

And in the act of full disclosure, before my day night whatever started, I woke up in the middle of day night whatever and had the first half-container of yogurt and a peanut bar.

WHAT CAN I SAY, I WOKE UP AND FELT NUTS!

  1. Ha, I had the same thing for dinner!!

  2. Kate says:

    Yuuuuum. I love cheese too! I also used to not allow myself any, or only the fat free/lowest fat varieties. Now, I stock my fridge with Brie, goat cheese, aged white cheddar. YOu name it! Cheese is the shit.

    Girl, I don’t know how you do the nursing thing. Your shifts sound crazy!!! I would be a zombie. Props to you for sticking through it! And taking pictures of your food while on shift. That’s dedication. :)

  3. That yogurt mess sounds fab!! I’m with you on the cheese. I had a grilled cheese yesterday and I can’t get that deliciousness out of my head!

  4. And now I’m sad that I finished off the cheese in my fridge, because a grilled cheese sounds pretty perfect right about now. Favourites: brie and goat cheese…I like it soft! (that’s *not* what she said? 😉 )

  5. Food puns for days!! I love it!! And all of the cheese…I love that too!!

  6. Eric says:

    I re-heat leftover pizza. I like my pizza hot and soft!

    That grilled cheese thing you had looked yummm. I really need to start doing a bigger breakfast before looking at your blog every morning!

  7. I’m not normally a big cheese fan, but lately I’ve been craving it! I love adding parmesan to basically everything 😉

  8. Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Cheese……

    I die,

    Marry me?

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      I thought you’d never ask!! Though I’m gonna have a hard time getting my ring since YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BLEND!! :( Wahhhh!

  9. Stop! You’re killing me here! My fridge is basically a barren wasteland since I’ve been away all week, which means that no cheese is to be found, which means that I can’t make the pizza that I’m currently craving. Light bulb! Need to hit up the store right.NOW.

    Favourite cheeses? Parmesan takes them all, but cream cheese comes in a close second… especially when accompanied by jam. Omg yum.

  10. Ain’t nothing wrong with a little cheese lovin! Goodness knows I had plenty in my calzone last night!

  11. Courtney says:

    I worked at a cheese store (literally called, The Cheese Store) in my hometown throughout high school so I am a self proclaimed connoisseur. CHEESE IS BEAUTIFUL THING. Instead of going out to eat my bf and I buy a chunk of Spanish Manchego cheese and a bottle of wine, and that’s that. Hunt it down! 😉

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Omg, talk about a dream job! Though I probably wouldn’t have appreciated it quite as well with my younger palate. 😉 If I ever give up on finding myself a sugar daddy, I’ll just marry me a cheesemonger! Hahaha!

  12. You are punny and you know what I am eating for dinner now! lol GRILLED CHEESE! I cannot wait. Thanks – now I will be dreaming about delicious gooey cheese allllllllll day while at my desk 😉

  13. Love grilled cheese! I NEED to go find that at tjmax or marshals, that yogurt mess sounds out of this world kinda crazy good! Leftover pizza is only acceptable cold. Actually, I think most all leftovers are better cold.

  14. Hilary says:

    I love cheddar, swiss, and munster! I couldn’t pick one haha they are all equally delicious !

  15. I will forever hold a special place for grilled cheese in my heart. Especially loaded ones. They’re just so flippin’ good! Girl, please share your food genius with me? I could use some spark in the kitchen. 😀

  16. Oh my gosh I was just having a conversation with someone about all the cheeses I would eat if my tummy could handle them. Mainly ALL THE BRIE. Sigh.

  17. Sarah says:

    How crazy… I had a post about my grilled cheese as well.

  18. Hahaha I love the Moses joke. That one cracks me up every time.

    Favourite cheese? Impossible to choose! Sharp cheddar, Brie, and Parmesan are probably my top 3 though.

  19. betty says:

    omg. all the puns. lololol and seriously.. the only reason I could never go vegan is because of cheese. i’m pretty sure I could do without meat, but cheese.. hail no!

  20. Kadee-Cat says:

    Food puns are my life! Also, this is the third blog I’ve read today and the third time seeing a grilled cheese. I think it’s destiny that I go make one RIGHT NOW.

  21. Julie says:

    I need to keep an eye out for some cream cheese extract. Good way to add flavor!

  22. Cheese should be it’s own macro. Protein, fats, carbs and cheese. Let’s get michelle obama on this.

    Cold pizza. It MUST be cold. Bonus points if eaten for breakfast the next day. No favourites. Actually, I just tried a mild haloumi last week. It was amazing. And sodium inducing.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      A to the MEN!! Or perhaps, Ar to the MAN? 😉

      Ugh, haloumi is on my list to try! I’ve been on the lookout for it for years now!

  23. Life is so much sweeter with cheese. I could never pick a favorite. Instead I shall just eat them all.

  24. Kristy says:

    Your food puns in ALL CAPS made me laugh out loud. I feel like you are my spirit animal sometimes haha.

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Haha! You just made my day, Kristy! Is it weird that I’m now picturing myself with wings? (“spirit” animal!) 😉
