WIAW – Chinese Take Out, Snacks & More


You would assume that writing a daily blog would help me to be more aware of what day of the week it is but actually, it’s even more confusing this way!

Between thinking ahead about post topics and when to publish them, photographing food from one day to share a different day and then  sitting down to write a post about something that happened three days ago — I am one confused girl.

Today is Wednesday, December 16, 2015. And now I sound like a school morning announcement.

It’s also What I Ate Wednesday so to confuse me all over again, let’s NOT look at what I ate today (because nothing more than coffee has even happened yet), instead let’s take a look at what I ate on Sunday.

What I Ate Wednesday 12-16-15


Along with some coffee went a blueberry filled three ingredient pancake….which I didn’t flip very well so it became a scramble in a bowl with peanut butter.

I really like it as a scramble though! I will make it this way more often.


I am not usually home on the weekends for lunch but my son had plans around 12:30 pm and I was getting ravenous for a meal so before I left to take him to his friend’s house, I made myself a salad.


Trader Joe’s Chopped 8 veggie mix (is that what it’s called? I forget now) with roasted broccoli, brussels sprouts, brown rice and chick peas.


I don’t always include my snacks because I don’t really keep track of what I grab throughout the day. This is a pretty good snapshot though of the snacks I most often eat between meals.



If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that Saturday night was Chinese take out night!

We picked up from my favorite place (Foo Luck for local NY readers) which was so good that I wondered why it is I don’t eat Chinese food as often as I once did. I think at some point I switched from craving Chinese food to craving sushi. I am officially back to Chinese.

While I no longer eat boneless spare ribs since going meatless four years ago, I do still enjoy my favorite steamed vegetable dumplings, the veggie dishes and the sauces. Love garlic sauce!

We had plenty left for Sunday night’s dinner which made me really happy. Here’s a peak at some of what I ate:

I added the chick peas to dinner because I needed to use what was left in the refrigerator.


I had made the cold s’mores recipe earlier in the day so of course I was eating one (actually, two) for dessert.

Oh so good. You need to make them. The marshmallows don’t freeze, they just get all chewy and combine well with the whipped topping. It’s like a chipwich!

Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating today 🙂

Anyone else always confused about what day it is?

Favorite Chinese take out?

Do you tend to eat home on the weekends or more often are you out?

    I do feel like its hard to keep track of the days, and blogging does make it more confusing! And when I start writing posts in advance I forget what information I have actually shared and what is just in draft form. Last night Rob and I couldn’t figure out something that happened last week and we were saying it would be easier to remember based on what we ate each day- like Oh yea, that happened the day we ate tacos! And then we could look and our meal plan and figure it out:)

    I actually don’t crave Chinese often, maybe because it’s so high in sodium that I don’t feel great the next day. But, I do always enjoy some orange chicken. Broken/failed pancakes happen to me more than I care to admit but plopping it in a bowl with PB on top is a pretty good solution!

    There is an Australian breakfast that looks like a scramble pancake. Is that by making a pancake and then break it up in a pan with the light sauce!

    I always feel as if I’m at least one day off, since I’m always working ahead on blog posts! I have to glue myself to my planner to make sure I actually know what day it is. I fall into the trap of eating out more on weekends, especially for Saturday or Sunday lunch if we’re out running errands.
