I got a comment yesterday from the lovely Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets telling me I shouldn’t feel like a slug for not blogging while away and being slow to start now that I’m back. I’m taking her advise and there will be no more whining about what I did or didn’t do. I’m here and I’m jumping in with both feet.
What better way to whet my feet than to jump right into What I Ate Wednesday?! I’ve missed reading (and talking) about food over the last month. This is the place to do both. WIAW is the fabulous link up created by the lovely new Momma, Jenn at Peas & Crayons. I’ve got a lot to catch up on. Hope there are lots of baby pictures…need to get to know the chickpea! Be sure to stop by at P & C when you’re finished here to see lots of great food and drool on your keyboard a little.
There was lots of great food in and around Silver City. I did get some photos but I fell out of the habit of even taking photos after a while. I did get some and here they come!
Ralph and I celebrated our anniversary while we were away. This was dinner at Diane’s Restaurant.
If I remember correctly, there were greens and white beans under the Portobello mushroom. When I go there again, I think I’ll ask for this over pasta rather than that huge slice of bread. Delicious.
This was lunch at Vicki’s Eatery…a Mediterranean salad. I’ve had this before and I always love it. Stuffed grape leaves and hummus with pita just make it perfect.
We had breakfast several times a place called the Adobe Springs Cafe. Not sure why but we haven’t gone here very often. We went three times during this visit and we will go more often from now on.
This is their veggie omelette. Spinach, green peppers, mushrooms, black olives, tomatoes and my addition of pepper jack cheese. SO Good!!
Huevos Rancheros. I think I’m spelling that correctly. Under there are blue corn tortillas and beans. This was so good. Actually, it looks like a Halloween mask. I Will have this again!!
One of our favorite place in Silver is Alotta Gelato. They have delicious gelato made on the premises and it couldn’t be better.
This is pumpkin pie. I had it several times. There are lots of other unique and delicious flavors. The lemon is SO lemony. They’re all wonderful as are the owners, Mitch and Starr. Great folks.
Now I’m back in New Jersey. While in Silver City I could not go to a Weight Watchers meeting because…there Are None!! Well, of course I could drive to Las Cruces…two hours away! But even I’m not that dedicated. We’ll see what happens, when we actually move there…I’m going to need some support. I wasn’t happy (or especially surprised) when I got on the scale at Saturday morning’s meeting. I had gained 7 pounds. I’m still way under goal and I think most of that was due to the last few days of the trip. Southern food is heavy. So I promised no whining. I’m back on track already.
This was lunch yesterday…
Look familiar?! Rice cakes with cottage cheese and sweet pickle relish. This will get me back on track. I should have good news after next Saturday’s meeting. Oh, my the way…we pulled up in front of our house at 2:30 am Friday night into Saturday morning. I was up at 5:30 am to get ready to go to my Weight Watchers meeting. Do you think I needed a meeting?!? I’d say YES!!
That’s What I Ate Wednesday for me this week. Be sure to check out all the fun over at Peas & Crayons. As for me, I’m off to dive into a pile of something and get back to my clearing out. If I get this all accomplished, pretty soon I’ll be sending my WIAW posts from New Mexico. Fingers Crossed!!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
