It’s that Happy time of week when we get together over at Peas & Crayons and talk about what we’ve been eating all week. It’s What I Ate Wednesday! When you’re finished here, be sure to stop over there to see what everyone’s been munching on all week long!
I’m always up for a breakfast at the diner. My best friend Gail and I took our other best friend Alice and Gail’s brother, Ray to the airport for a flight to Florida. No problem except that we had to leave at 4:30 am!! Again, no problem, but we wanted to go to breakfast and contrary to what we thought, all of the local diners are Not open at 5 am! We went to one that had recently reopened after renovations. It looked nice but this was 5 am. There were only 2 other people in the diner and we had to wait almost 25 minutes for our food. It wasn’t that great when we finally got it.
But it was better than some early diner breakfasts I’ve had. We headed to the gym afterwards to work it off.
I got a better breakfast at home on another day. I like trying unique things with omelettes.
Not the prettiest photo but very tasty. Egg beaters and egg whites seasoned with Mrs. Dash and chipotle powder. Inside chopped broccoli, 2% cheese and a quarter cup of black beans. Topped with Cholula hot sauce, my new favorite. The small addition of the quarter cup of black beans makes this extremely filling. I add them in whenever I have the home-made beans in the fridge.
Sometimes I’ll take a little shortcut. Ralph brought home a salad from a local convenience store labeled “super food” salad. It was made with kale, slivered almonds and chopped apples.
I added some chopped spinach, cucumbers, tomatoes, black beans, 2 % cheese and light balsamic vinaigrette. It was delicious! It’s nice to take a little help when you can. I love doing that with store-bought salads. I can always find a way to make them more substantial or add some protein.
One more salad. Ralph and I went to one of our favorite restaurants on Monday afternoon. In line with my continued efforts to get back on and stay on track with my food choices, I had already decided what I would have before we got there. When the server brought the menu, I left it on the table and didn’t even look. I didn’t want to be tempted to stray from my plan.
This restaurant has the best Greek Salad I’ve ever tried. It looked better but I started to poke around at it. I forgot that I’m blogging again and needed a nice photo! Regardless, I think it’s beautiful and I know it was delicious. I also asked for only one roll with it, that way I wouldn’t be tempted by an entire basket. I keep trying!
That’s What I Ate Wednesday for me this week. I need to get back to doing more cooking and coming up with some unique things. We’ll see how I do. Whatever I come up with, you can be sure I’ll be back here next Wednesday. Be sure to stop over at Peas & Crayons to check out the other linkers!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
