Good Morning to all of you food fans out there. Welcome to the Party! This is the day that food bloggers far and wide wait for each week, anxious to be a part of it…It’s What I Ate Wednesday! If you don’t know, it’s the party of the century every week over at Peas & Crayons with the lovely Jenn as the Mistress of Ceremonies!
I’m giving you a real overview, combo, come as you are day today. A little bit of this, A little bit of that…oops, that’s a little bit of my NaNoWriMo brain jumping in wanting to join the party! There’s lots to see and here we go!
You’ll remember me talking about all of the veggie roasting I did on Sunday. This was the first dish I made on Sunday night. I started with my previously prepared pinto beans, topped with a portion each of roasted broccoli, zucchini, yellow squash, butternut squash and Brussel sprouts. Then finally topped with some of my 50% reduced fat Cabot cheddar cheese (yum) and sriracha sauce. Very tasty and oh so filling.
Looks like a plain old yogurt container, right? Well, you’ve heard of making overnight oats in a peanut butter jar…I decided it would work with the yogurt left at the bottom of a container. It doesn’t look very good, but…
It tasted great and I didn’t have to wash a jar! I did my usual yogurt, soymilk, oats and cinnamon mix. But added some Weight Watchers French Vanilla smoothie mix. I’m trying to add extra protein and this is a good source. Very tasty too. I’m looking for a good protein powder to add to foods. Anyone have any suggestions? I need a good recommendation. I like the vanilla, but was hoping also for a non-flavored one that I could had into savory dishes.
Monday night I still had roasted veggies on the mind. I cooked up some quinoa. Everytime I make quinoa, I love it more. I’ve only ever made it using veggie broth and I don’t know how it would taste cooking it in water, but I just love the flavor. I swear I could eat it with a spoon just as is after cooking. I warmed up almost the last of the pinto beans I cooked last week, added the quinoa, the roasted veggies and warmed them up in the microwave.
Topped again with the Cabot cheese and sriracha sauce. I’m nothing if not predictable. I’m trying to think of something new to do with the remaining roasted veggies, but they may turn into something very similar to this! Hey, I like it, I eat it!
I mentioned yesterday buying Kefir for the first time.
This morning I had it for breakfast.
I mentioned that I’m not really a fan of blueberry flavored things. I love blueberries, but don’t like it as a flavoring. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it. but it was delicious! I paired it with Fiber One cereal. It was so good that I’m not kidding when I say I licked the bowl! I think I’m going to try making overnight oats with it. That should be interesting!
So that’s What I Ate Wednesday from my perspective. Be sure to drop by to visit Peas & Crayons to make a little noise, leave a few comments, and be the Peeping Tom Foodie that you know you are! Jenn and all of the rest of the gang will appreciate your company!
