Because you want to know what I look like when I shovel snow…
I originally thought that this weeks What I Ate Wednesday would be about what I ate yesterday while in the city for an event but of course that event was postponed due to the blizzard.
So instead let’s just look at what we have been eating while in the house over the last few days…
Breakfast has officially seen the return of my three-ingredient pancake on an every morning basis.
My flipping skills are slowing improving back to where they used to be.
Topped with peanut butter and a drop of Trader Joe’s Cranberry Apple Jelly.
I like to bake when it snows so early yesterday morning I whipped up these blueberry-loaded blueberry muffins which my son had for breakfast when he finally rolled out of bed.
We ate them warm with peanut butter. Might Maple peanut butter. Delicious. Muffin recipe to come.
I had Red Mango over the weekend which you may have seen on instagram and I am sitting here sorry that I didn’t take home a pint of their original yogurt to have for lunch this week.
Gosh I just love a good Red Mango parfait. Sometimes I make a parfait at home using greek yogurt but it’s just not the same effect as the frozen yogurt kind.
Instead I relied the last few days on my usual power bowl-type lunch with the ingredients I had on hand.
Roasted sweet potatoes wedges, brussels sprouts, spinach and tomatoes with chick pea/avocado mash.
Looks like I am eating special tomatoes this week.
And I keep dipping everything in this hummus.
I tried not to keep refilling my coffee mug with coffee so I alternated with decaf Yoga tea.
Yogi Kava Stress Relief is my favorite flavor.
I bought a spaghetti squash at Whole Foods over the weekend because my son requested it.
He saw some Rachel Ray segment on television and decided he needed what they were eating and whatever it was they were eating, including spaghetti squash.
I don’t know for sure what her recipe was but I roasted the squash and made him baked chicken parmesan.
The green stuff you see on his plate is sugar snap peas. It’s the only green vegetable he will voluntarily eat so I make sure to get them on his plate.
I want to share my breading recipe with you soon since I don’t use traditional bread crumbs.
I figured I would attempt to finally make the black bean brownies yesterday but my son decided HE wanted to bake something, as in, by himself.
It was not easy to give up control of my kitchen (I handled the oven) but I let him make flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, a recipe I first learned from Jen over at Peanut Butter Runner.
He had picked a different peanut butter cookie recipe which involved flour and butter.
I politely forced this recipe on him instead because these flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are so delicious that I can’t see why one would bother to add the extra ingredients.
Speaking of peanut butter and chocolate, I grabbed this cereal the other day at Whole Foods.
I am not a big cereal eater at all but I felt like we could use it as another snack option.
The fun continues all over again since school is closed another day. We should be able to get out though, it’s not snowing anymore and the roads should be decent a little later this morning.
Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating today!
If it snowed by you, how much snow did you get?
Are you a regular cereal eater?
