I know, I know…Last week I was lamenting how few food photos I had when I posted for What I Ate Wednesday. This week, I’m trying to decide Which photos to use…seems like I have an over abundance. Regardless, I will NOT miss a chance to be part of the Fabulous Food party created by Jenn at Peas & Crayons. Be sure to check it out and leave some comments. Just be careful of drooling all over your computer!
Let the Food Fun Begin!!
One of my old faithfuls and one of my favorites! Caramel corn rice cakes with a quarter cup of low-fat cottage cheese split between them and liberally topped with cinnamon. This is a great quick lunch for me when I’m working on my many projects around the house.
For our short road trip on Tuesday, Ralph and I stopped at a pizza shop that we love but only get to visit once in a while. This is a hot veggie wrap. You have your choice of wraps, I chose the tomato (because I knew the color would be pretty!) It has broccoli, mushrooms, onions pepper and provolone cheese. It is So good. It comes with a pickle and chips. I got the pickle, Ralph got the chips. Yum!
Made a crock pot full of black beans…well, because I Love black beans and I’ll eat them all!
Nothing like a salad in my Big Purple Bowl that is filled with home cooked black beans. So good. Keeps me full for hours! More Black Bean fun later in the week.
Look familiar?! Yes, it’s my fave…spinach and mushroom omelette with sliced tomatoes. Funny thing, here. I’ve been getting egg white omelettes lately and forgot to ask for it this time. It tasted so different with the full eggs. I’m thinking I like the egg whites better!
An unexpected visit to one of our favorite diners for one of my favorite meals…the Athenia burger. Greek salad along side of a yummy veggie burger. Just love it!
Back at our usual diner, something I’d never tried before. My friend, Gail had suggested it. They call it a “veggie cheese steak.” It’s grilled veggies-mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, romaine lettuce and some other things I’m sure-all cooked together on a roll. It comes with American cheese underneath, but I asked for Provolone. It was Delicious!! Expect to see this, again!!
Ralph and I took Ele out to dinner for Mother’s Day. Back at the diner again…ok…we Like the diner!!
Salad first, with ranch dressing eaten with the dip method…dip your fork in the dressing, then pick up the veggies. You don’t use nearly as much dressing but you still get the flavor. An old Weight Watchers trick.
And THIS is what passes as a mini-meal at this diner. Huge! I was proud of myself that I only ate half, but I must confess I had it later. So very good.
Now here comes the real true confession part of this post…
Our favorite place in the world…Ice Cream Kids…is open for the season. Since it was Mother’s Day, we thought we’d splurge. This is a new flavor, to me at least…not sure if they’ve had it before. Caramel Apple…I’m drooling thinking about it. It was just wonderful. I’m proud of myself that I asked for a small and it was just enough (although in truth if I’d been left alone with a spoon and the tub of the ice cream…it would not exist anymore!!) A great treat to end the day.
So that’s it for me for WIAW this week. I feel so much better that I have some actual food photos to share! It makes me really feel like I’m part of the party. Be sure to check out the other posts at Peas & Crayons. It’s the best deal for your food dollar! 😉
