I’ve been participating in What I Ate Wednesday for quite some time now. At first I thought that we actually had to post “what” we ate on Wednesday and couldn’t figure out how that worked. Then I realized it was what we “ate” and didn’t have to be from Wednesday, that was just the date we posted it. So since I’ve had that figured out, I’ve had great fun doing it! I don’t think I’ve missed one since I started (although unlike some bloggers, I don’t actually know how many times I’ve participated.) Of course, WIAW is the fun day thunk up by Jenn at Peas & Crayons.
I love being able to show my healthy, tasty choices every week. However, one of the issues we’ve had to deal with since we’ve been visiting our home in New Mexico, is that the fridge is not working properly. The fridge itself is not cold…the freezer is about as cold as a fridge usually is. So all of our water, milk, butter, et al has to go in there. I can’t tell you how sad I am because my plan was to cook healthy for us while here and in the process be thrifty rather than eating out all the time.
Sadly that hasn’t happened and I can’t tell you how I’m craving a salad in my Big Purple Bowl. I have a big green bowl here that worked great, but I only used it once. It’s not easy to find a decent salad here that doesn’t have some form of meat in it and even if you ask for it left off, it’s not much of a salad. So for that reason alone I’ll be happy to get back to New Jersey. The foods I have been eating have been catch as catch can and not really photo worthy (Too much Taco Bell and Veggie Burger King.)
I have made a new friend and her name is Stella.
I met her at Java the Hut and she is adorable and friendly. Of course, when I decided to take her photo, she decided she needed a nap! She’s so sweet!
Something that is worth showing is the scenery and the sunrises and sunsets. Here’s a sunrise from Tuesday.
I feel a little bit like a fraud posting this on WIAW this week, but I figure, I deserve a little slack under the circumstances. Please be sure to go over to Peas & Crayons to read about some real food and of course leave some comments.
Next week for WIAW, we’ll either be on the road heading back to NJ or we’ll actually be there depending on how soon we get on the road. But as I think it shows today, I hate to miss WIAW!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday! (The Non-Food edition!)
