WIAW~ No…That’s All…Just WIAW!!

One thing at a time.  Although there have been times in my life that I’ve been a good multi-tasker, right now I’m better with one thing at a time.  I’m so glad that today I get to do What I Ate Wednesday as just that…What I Ate Wednesday.  I’ve successfully (and for me I think REALLY successfully) completed the Blogging A to Z Challenge.  My wrap up post for the A to Z will be coming shortly.

But today it’s all about the food and from what I see in my photos…almost all about Breakfast! So here goes.  Oh…can’t forget to mention our Queen of What I Ate Wednesday, the great organizer…Jenn at Peas & Crayons. Head on over after you’re finished here to see more great food and general craziness!

Peas and Crayons

As I said…Breakfast first…lots of breakfast!



My current favorite at home breakfast…egg substitute/egg whites and broccoli cooked in the microwave in my tiny glass measuring cup.  I’ve taken to eating it directly from the cup.  I love a handle! I’m also tracking my Points now on my new phone.  I feel like I’m cheating on my paper Tracker but it seems to be working so I’ll stick with it for the time being.



This was actually breakfast for late lunch…egg white omelette with spinach and mushrooms, sliced tomatoes on the side.



This may look like the same meal, but it’s not.  (Took me a few minutes to figure out which was which, though!) Egg white omelette with spinach and feta cheese, of course sliced tomatoes on the side.  Very good.



French Toast! Something different! Gail, Alice and I all ordered it for breakfast last Saturday and none of us could finish it!  We ended up taking the left overs to Ralph and Gail’s brother, Ray.  They were happy that we couldn’t finish it!

Sunday we had another celebration of Ralph’s birthday at Ele’s house.



Simple can be just as good.  I made my usual Big Salad to contribute.  Loved it and Ele made pasta.  There was Italian sausage for the meaty folks in attendance.  I was thrilled with mine…Yum!

Of course, no trip to Ele’s house would be complete without some wonderful dessert.  We were celebrating Ralph’s birthday so…Chocolate Cake…



Bigger than my usual share, but I knew it would be incredible and I’ve been really good lately…thought I deserved it.  We came home with leftover cake and I must confess I had another piece this size on Sunday.  It’s gone now and it can’t hurt me.  It was So good as always when Ele makes it!

At some point I need to catch you all up on my recent successes at Weight Watchers.  I’m pretty pleased.  But I’ll save it for another day.  It would be cruel to talk about that after the chocolate cake!   😉

Be sure to check out Peas & Crayons and the other fabulous blogs assembled there today…leave some comments…we all love comments!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

  1. Happy WIAW Fran. I love Ralph’s birthday dinner at Elle’s house. A piece of chocolate cake, a big bowl of pasta along with some greens. Talk about a perfect meal!.

  2. look at you, fran, getting all fancy with using your new phone as a tracking device – good for you! love the measuring cup use – i will remember that!
    there is something to be said for focussing on one task at a time vs multi-tasking…certainly it is more calming to do one thing at a time (she says as she knits and reads blogs and drinks coffee!…).
    today i am working til noon (scheduling changes abound in the month of may) THEN heading to TO to see the girls! yippee!

    • Sounds like a great day ahead for you, Cath! Love hearing about the girlies! I’m enjoying tracking on the phone but issues abound with the WW app. I’ve heard it from other people too. Keeps telling me I don’t have an internet connection. Hello…I’m on a phone, I don’t Need an internet connection! Have a great day, Cath!

  3. Happy WIAW! It sounds like some delicious eats! And who can pass up chocolate cake?!

  4. Nothing to do with food persay, but I love your phone cover. Simple yet colorful. I need one because I have a horrible tendency to drop mine whenever I walk over pavement. But… It kind of connects with food because you use your phone to check WW points, right? 😉 Excited to hear the good news about your recent Weight Watchers adventures!

    • I’m getting to “know” my phone, Madison. I’m sure it does loads of things I have no knowledge of. Ralph and I both got the Otter Box covers (his is an iPhone) and I was thrilled that there was purple available. The WW app is giving me fits at times, but I hear that many people have that issue. WW Happiness to come soon!

  5. That looks like a great birthday meal, yum!

  6. Mmm, I’m always up for posts dedicated to breakfast! Breakfast foods are the best, hands down. Well, unless the other option is chocolate cake 😉 Looking forward to reading more about your successes!

    • I’ve found the breakfast is my best choice when Ralph says, “Let’s go to the diner!” I know what to chose and how to count it. It’s good for me too! But my sister’s chocolate cake is the best!!

  7. Egg white omelets are awesome 🙂 Happy WIAW!

  8. That cake looks absolutely delicious! Hope you enjoyed it :D. I’ve also been going through an omelet kick lately…

  9. The meals all look wonderfully tasty, and disgustingly healthy. Or, um, wonderfully healthy. I’m trying to get better meals, so I may borrow some of yours. Thanks.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

    • Anytime, Bear! Yes, I guess they are disgustingly healthy, but I’m working to keep my weight under control and stay healthy! I’ve got lots to accomplish. You can borrow my ideas anytime you like!

  10. I have to laugh because it seems there’s always a birthday going on here at BCDC! I love it though, I’ll celebrate anyone’s birthday, I love a party!

    And of course the cake is always appreciated! 🙂
