Hi! It’s Wednesday already! Somehow I didn’t get a post up since Sunday which isn’t exactly like me but hey, it happens.
I’m just in time for What I Ate Wednesday so I’m sure nobody minds anyway.
So last week, which you may have caught on my Instagram story, I found myself craving eggs for breakfast. I thought I saved the story as a picture but it saved as a video which I somehow loaded here as a picture and it got caught off. Don’t ask, at least I got it up!
The egg craving only happened for two mornings (maybe three?) but I went with how I was feeling instead of forcing myself to eat oatmeal.
Isn’t it funny how cravings happen and then once you satisfy them, they go away? It’s not that I don’t like eggs, it’s that I really only like them when I actually crave them. I don’t even know if that makes sense to anyone but me.
Anyway, there are a whole lot of salads in my life lately.
I had this cranberry walnut salad for lunch the other day at the Sweet Hollow diner.
And then there was this giant greek salad at the Premier Diner. You know the Premier Diner is my favorite, especially for breakfast!
Plus coleslaw and pickle! Diners are the best for the coleslaw and pickle before your meal arrives. 🙂
My favorite pizza and salad dinner combo. This was of course a corner slice of grandma pizza. Always the corner slice!
Most of my meals when I eat at home involve big salads. I had fallen off the sweet potato train but I think I am back. Roasted sweet potatoes added to a salad with chick peas and avocado are always a good idea.
Then there was this quick salad with chick peas plus half a toasted protein multigrain bagel with avocado.
The best dessert I’ve had recently is this chocolate fudge cake. While my son’s 14th birthday is this Friday, he was in fact born on Yom Kippur in 2003. So, every year on Yom Kippur (the date changes every year according to the Hebrew Calendar) we remember that I was in labor and he was born.
I call it his Hebrew Calendar birthday so we had a small chocolate fudge cake to celebrate Saturday night.
This chocolate fudge cake was so super delicious, with my idea of perfect ratio of fudge frosting to cake.
We haven’t quite figured out his birthday cake logistics for this Friday night because it will depend upon where he wants to go for dinner and if that restaurant offers a super delicious dessert. I will certainly keep you posted. 🙂Craving eggs + Lots of Salads + chocolate cake #WIAW #eggs #cravings #salads #chocolatecake Click To Tweet
How do you feel about eggs? Do you love them and eat them often or only crave them occasionally?
Any random cravings for breakfast lately?
Do you have a favorite diner near you?
