I actually didn’t mean to not post yesterday. It’s just that the post I have been working on really wasn’t finished yet and I wasn’t about to rush it just to get it live.
So, hi! It’s Wednesday already! Time to talk food.
I think this picture of my post-run oatmeal explains why I rarely share pictures of my breakfast anymore. It’s so not photogenic! I swear it tastes so good though.
I’ve been using Flahavan’s Oatmeal lately as the company sent me some packages forever ago and I finally got around to trying both the Irish Steel Cut Oats and Irish Oatmeal. I really like both oatmeal varieties and definitely notice their distinct textures.
Another week, another round of salads. I had this chopped salad at Town Bagel but not our usual Town Bagel – we went to a different location this time.
The chopped salad was the same but the bagel selection wasn’t as good. You would think they would have the same bagels but they actually do not which was annoying because I wanted the maple raisin multigrain bagel. Instead, I got a whole wheat everything bagel which was fine except I swear it was missing some of the “everything bagel” ingredients.
In the chopped salad was chickpeas, avocado, beets, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and probably something else.
I really enjoyed this salad at Chopt but I think it’s mainly because I love their spicy tahini dressing. Pretty sure I say that every time I include a Chopt salad in my posts.
In this chopped salad was romaine, spinach, quinoa, avocado, tomatoes, beets, charred onions and spicy peppers.
Sometimes I really do eat at home. Here is an easy lunch while working salad that contained romaine lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese and a Dr. Praeger’s veggie burger.
Last night was my son’s moving up ceremony from middle school! I still can’t believe he starts high school in September. The next four years are going to fly, I just know it.
He wanted to go out for a celebration dinner after the ceremony and chose The Cheesecake Factory. It’s funny, I couldn’t think of where we should go on a random Tuesday evening, not even realizing that The Cheesecake Factory was a great option!
Nachos for the table. I am not a nachos lover but I pick at the tomatoes, guacamole and jalapenos.
Of course I had my salad. In fact, I recalled having this very same salad the night of my college graduation. The Cheesecake Factory and I have a long, happy history.
My son chose Linda’s Fudge Cake and I picked at it when he was finished.
After sharing last week’s life lessons after divorce post, it’s worth mentioning that my son is so lucky to be able to have this night with both of his parents. We are really good at sitting together at events like this and have no problem taking him for dinner. It may not be considered the normal divorced thing to do but I don’t believe there is a standard normal divorced thing to do!recent eats, a lot of salads plus celebrating at Cheesecake Factory #wiaw #salads #cheesecakefactory @cheesecakefactory #oatmeal Click To Tweet
Do you like nachos?
Which type of oatmeal do you eat lately?
What’s for lunch today?
*I received the packages of oatmeal to try in exchange for my opinion.
