Your comments are the only reason we get out of bed in the morning!
Jenn’s idea for the month is Eat Your Veggies. Well here I am, the local Vegetarian in Residence and I don’t really have much vegginess to share, second week in a row. It’s the strangest thing. I haven’t had the chance to go shopping except for a quick trip to the produce market which should have taken care of my issues, but it was…quick…I didn’t get much and I haven’t really been cooking much, not even my usuals!
But don’t think I’ll leave you veggiless. Tuesday on Valentine’s Day after a visit to the family doctor for a check up, Ralph and I went out to eat to celebrate the day.
We found ourselves at The Meadows Diner.
What did I chose? One of my favorites. The Athenia Burger.
It’s Greek salad, accompanied by a veggie burger. It’s my favorite thing to get here. Very tasty and very satisfying.
Various projects around the house left me tired. When I got to thinking about dinner, as so often happens I wanted quick and easy.
Lucky for me, I had leftover salad from our dinner at my sister Ele’s house on Sunday. Just enough for a Big Purple Bowl full. I heated up some MorningStar Farms spicy black bean burgers and some cheese from I don’t know when! I chopped up the burgers and the cheese and mixed them into the salad along with lots of ground black pepper, basil and light balsamic vinaigrette.
Absolutely the best and so amazingly filling, I was Not looking for any snacks after this, you can be sure!
So that’s my short and sweet What I Ate Wednesday. I do need to get myself charged up for a more enthusiastic and veggiful post for next week’s WIAW.
In the meantime, please be sure to visit Peas & Crayons, to revel in all of the wonderful offerings. Leave some comments so that everyone knows you’ve been there to visit.
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
