Wednesday already and it’s time for another addition of What I Ate Wednesday. It’s always fun at Jenn’s party over at Peas and Crayons. Be sure to catch up on what’s going on with everyone over there when you’re finished here.
I have the feeling that a lot of people will be posting Thanksgiving prep photos. Or maybe that will come next week. Regardless, you’ll get none of them from me today. As the title indicates, I’ve been eating out too much.
Last Thursday, Ralph and I went out to lunch at a diner we don’t go to very often. There were not a lot of vegetarian choices. For example the Greek Salad comes with chicken mixed in to the salad! I know I could ask for it to be left out, but that doesn’t bode well for the veggie at the table.
The did have a great side salad.
Rarely do they come this big.
I noticed they had a veggie burger on the menu and asked for it made as what they called a fajita burger.
It had sautéed onions and peppers and cheese on it. The veggie burger was sort of destroyed in the process, but it still tasted good. If I had known that the side salad was so big, I would have just asked for that with the veggie burger on top. That will be my choice the next time we go there.
We also had lunch at a local pizzeria that we don’t go to very often. We were there last week and I discovered something on their lunch specials menu.
You start with soup…I picked their vegetable which they assured me was purely vegetables.
It is very light, garlicy and delicious.
It comes with a grilled cheese sandwich on Texas toast. It’s supposed to come with french fries, but they’re happy to substitute a side salad. I got mine with balsamic vinaigrette.
This was really good. It’s not greasy the way some grilled cheese sandwiches are. Fairly high in Points for me, but very good.
Included in this week’s food was of course a crock pot full of my Weight Watchers veggie soup. But no pictures. I also think I’ve finally found how to make perfect black beans in the crock pot. I don’t think I’ve been cooking them long enough. I need to try it again to see if I’m right then I’ll post about it.
That’s WIAW for me for this week. Be sure to check out all of the fun over at Peas and Crayons. You’ll find lots of great food and fun ideas there.
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
