WIAW~ A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

My issues with WordPress continue and I now seem to have to go to the WordPress web site in order to post…Isn’t that a treat?!?! 😦

Regardless of these issues, there is no CHANCE that I will miss the most exciting day of the week…What I Ate Wednesday!! Those of you in the know are aware that this is just about the most fun day of the week. It’s all under the careful direction of Jenn over at Peas & Crayons. So when you’re finished here, be sure to visit over at P&C to see what all the shouting is about! Here we go!!

Peas and Crayons

Now, again, I realize, we’re supposed to be talking about sensible snacking. Well, again, have no documented snacking. The trouble might be that I’ve been doing under the table snacking…undocumented means it didn’t happened. It’s been a bad week that way. I’ve got some good food shots…snacks or not!


After Ralph’s art class Monday morning, we went out for breakfast.  I tried to be good and I feel that I was with a wonderful big bowl of hot oatmeal.  This particular restaurant makes probably the best oatmeal in the area.  Topped with cinnamon…Yum!


Here was my first use of the “deconstructed” black bean burgers.  A simple salad with the “burger” mixed in.  The best feature was the dressing I tried.  Mixed my 1Tbsp of olive oil, 1 Tbsp of Honey and 1 and 1/2 Tbsp of red wine vinegar.  I added the juice of 1 lime, then a little dash of Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning.  It was SO good.  My new favorite!


Ok, here’s a snack!  A nice helping of the crock pot apples I made over the weekend smothered in fat free  vanilla yogurt.  Very tasty!

Ralph had a doctor’s appointment so afterwards, we headed to breakfast.


This is a special omelette with egg whites, broccoli, asparagus, onions and tomatoes accompanied by cottage cheese.  Very tasty and a good choice on Weight Watchers.

Now, with this next photo…keep in mind it was Ralph’s choice.  But it’s kind of fun because it proves a point…


This was a HUGE cookie, but as we all know….Broken Cookies Don’t Count!!  I had a tiny, tiny piece, but I don’t have to worry about it!! 😉

So that’s it for WIAW for me!  I normally do my WIAW post on Tuesday and set things up to post on Wednesday.  However, with my WordPress issues…I just realized the way I’m posting gives me no option for scheduling my post.  So my choice is either post it now or have to do all of this early Wednesday morning.  So those of you who follow me with find yourselves getting a second post on Tuesday.  Don’t worry…there is no extra charge for this.  It’s a Gift!!   Be sure to head on over to Peas & Crayons.  Lust after some delicious food, leave some comments.  Everyone will thank you for it!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!  Someone please help me with these WordPress issues because they never respond to me!!!  🙂  🙂

  1. Thanks for the bonus gift Fran 😉 I think your deconstructed burger salad looks tasty! And I still love the broken cookie concept–it’s genius!

  2. a second post in this day is just fine with me, fran! watch out – we could get used to a morning and an evening visit.
    your deconstructed burger looks so good that i think i would make them on purpose that way – who needs a burger shape?!
    i do hope you can get wordpress sorted out…i have contacted their support team before and they were really helpful…fingers crossed for you!!

    • Thanks, Cathy! I’ve never had much help from them. They seem to take Forever to get back to me and most times they haven’t ever gotten back to me. My friend, Kristen is trying to help me. But believe me, I appreciate the crossed fingers!

  3. Gosh, all of your food looks awesome! Woot woot to you and keeping it healthy, balanced, and fun! I love cookies and yogurt! And I will definitely have to try that black bean burger mix!

  4. Oh my,that oatmeal… These apples… That cookie! Everything looks so good!
    I hope you get that wordpress issue sorted out,it must be annoying! 😦

  5. I want to go swimming in that giant bowl of oatmeal. I love when a restaurant cooks it well. [Although I typically don’t go out to eat breakfast because I know how inexpensively I can make oatmeal at home and I now that’s probably what I’ll want to order…is that wrong?]

    Veggie burgers on salads are AMAZING. 🙂

  6. Happy WIAW Fran! I am going to try your salad dressing recipe. 🙂

  7. I thought you were going to say you broke the cookie in half so it didn’t count. I love the crunchy edges so usually I eat around 10 cookies. Good thing my kids don’t mind eating cookies with the edges missing 🙂

  8. Your big salads always look fantastic!!

  9. Ohhh man that cookie looks delicious (even if it’s no oatmeal raisin cookie…the one kind I will never resist ;D ).

  10. Please can I come and stay?! all your food looks so good; a perfect bowl of porridge especially and the deconstructed burgers sound fab!
    And my mum was reading my blog the other day and looking at comments and she thought your blog name was brilliant 🙂

    • Yes, please come for a visit, Elle, but wait until we get to New Mexico…the menu will be the same, but the views will be So much better! I’m serious, we’ll have extra room out there. Here you’d have to sleep on a box!! Glad you Mum liked BCDC. I think it works! 😉

  11. Now I’m hungry for cottage cheese! 🙂

  12. YUMMY looking WIAW post Fran. PS: WordPress was making me crazy yesterday too!

  13. Yum, a chocolate chip cookie is the best snack ever!

  14. Crumbs don’t count. I use that philosophy for everything I’ve ever eaten ever 😉
    That cookie looks delicious!

  15. I am a big fan of the ginormous chocolate chip cookie.

  16. StoriesAndSweetPotatoes

    I want all your food. I need to try a salad like that. I’m not a huge salad fan so I need creative ways to eat lettuce! 🙂

    • Ok, Sara…I’m ready to share! I love salads. There are so many things you can do with them, and I’ve actually learned some different things since starting BCDC. Trying to creative makes me come up with things. It fills me up and it’s good for me! What more could I ask for?! Thanks for visiting, please stop by again.

  17. Dohhh I am sorry you are having some blog issues! Whenever that happens to me, I flip out because I never know how to fix technical issues!
    The cookie is just perfect, is there anything better than a classic cookie for a treat? Nay!

  18. Sorry about your WP issues, I wish I could help, but I’m on Blogger….and that’s not without it’s own issues too!

    Regardless, your eats still look good and I’m really craving an egg white omelette with cottage cheese now!

    I always get a kick out of your blog name, makes me smile for the day, thanks for that. What if you broke the cookie dough before baking and had a full batch of nothing but broken cookies? That’s a lot of good “not counting” to have!!

    Happy WIAW, hope you are able to solve your blog’s issues soon.

    • Thanks, RC!! This particular diner has so me great unusual choices. I love cottage cheese as a substitute for home fries. I usually do that or sliced tomatoes. So good! Hoping to get the WP problems solved!!
