I think you all know how I love participating in What I Ate Wednesday hosted by Jenn at Peas & Crayons. It’s fun, I find new blogs to read, I get food ideas. All makes sense doesn’t it? Even the badge is pretty with all of those colorful foods.
Then why have I not been taking photos of my food lately in order to share them? I guess I haven’t felt that my food has been photo worthy. I’m in a slump and that’s not good. I’m hoping that reading all of the fun posts on WIAW today will get me back in the food whirl. I’ll share what I’ve got, but don’t judge me by this.
On Monday we had the treat of going to lunch with Ralph’s son Bill and his sons Alex and Patrick. They all had the day off because of the holiday. We grabbed the chance to get together with them.
I had spent an hour our so in the morning working with sister Ele at her church. They’re closing down the rummage sale. 😦 We spent the morning boxing up everything. The good thing is that it’s all being donated to a thrift store for a school for special needs children. I was happy they decided to do that. I picked up a few last treasures before leaving…can’t help myself.
But back to the food. We went to the diner that we like so much and I got what has become my favorite regardless of which meal I’m supposed to be eating.
Mushroom and spinach omelette with a sprinkle of spaghetti cheese on top and cottage cheese instead of potatoes. It is tasty and adding the extra veggies makes it more filling. I’m liking that choice.
Dinner on Tuesday night was the first time I’ve actually cooked for myself in over a week. I’ve been eating mostly veggie burgers. They’re good in a pinch, but they’re not as filling and that may be the reason I’ve been having trouble with snacking. I took care of the filling issue in quick order.
I saved myself a step here. Sautéed onions, yellow squash, cabbage, green peas (still trying to clean out the freezer!) and cottage cheese. Some spices of course. I added veggie broth all along, then at the end added some extra broth and three-quarters of a cup of dry couscous. Didn’t have to cook the couscous separately. It was very good and I realized how much I miss my dishes like this. I need to head to the produce market to re-stock, today.
So that’s it for WIAW for me today. I warned you, there wasn’t much, but I promise that next week I’ll be back to my old veggified self!
Be sure to stop over to Peas & Crayons to check out what everyone’s eating today. Oh, yes…leave some comments!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday! It’s only 13 degrees out! Yikes!!
