Yesterday’s Meals + Tomato Soup + Bored With Dinner

So I have a question before we take a look at what I ate yesterday. Do we prefer seeing a full day of meals (as in, breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert) or do we prefer when I round-up a whole bunch of recent eats from the last few days? Please let me know as I try to decide which way to continue to go with What I Ate Wednesday style posts. 🙂


Do I even need to tell you again how obsessed I am with all things Henri Bendel at the moment? I want everything. EVERYTHING. It’s one part loving their girlie bags and accessories, one part their marketing strategy that always makes EVERYTHING look so darn appealing. Like now I am trying to rationalize needing this tote. I think I need it. 🙂

Anyway, the usual breakfast is going on here. Pre-run oatmeal with cinnamon, chia seeds and blueberries (peanut butter added after taking the picture) and coffee.


Post-run oatmeal which really looked like the above with the addition of diced apples. No picture.


I’m currently on a soup kick, which if you know me, is a little bit weird. I am NOT a soup lover.

However, I do make an exception for tomato soup. I love tomato soup (although I have to be in the soup mood to eat it).

At home, I LOVE the Trader Joe’s Organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup (low sodium). When I am out, I do like Panera’s tomato soup which I ordered yesterday with a salad for lunch while working.

I’m bored lately with dinner at home. Actually, it’s not that I’m bored with dinner in terms of eating, it’s that I don’t feel like thinking about it, going food shopping and then cooking.

This is a plant-based power bowl of sorts involving roasted Japanese sweet potatoes, lentils, quinoa and the julienned root vegetables from Trader Joe’s. Easy enough.

I had one of those mini dark chocolate bars again from Trader Joe’s plus some slices of a honey crisp apple dipped in the jar of peanut butter.

Are you a soup lover? Which soup is your favorite?

Who else is bored with dinner? What do you do when that happens?

Anyone having problems logging into the blog? Please let me know, it seems a bit slow and yesterday I am aware there were times that no one could log in. Thanks!

    That tote is so pretty! I think it should be your Christmas gift to yourself. Tis’ the season after all 🙂
    It’s funny you mentioned a tomato and roasted pepper soup, I just came across a recipe for one that looks delicious. The dark chocolate looks so good and having apples definitely keeps it a well balanced dessert.

    No problems logging in! I am not really a soup person, but sometimes you’re just in the mood, and tomato soup is definitely wonderful. Especially with a nice toasty grilled cheese mmmmm. Whenever I’m bored with dinner (which happens super often because of our sad dining hall options), I usually turn to breakfast for dinner. Like a big smoothie bowl or a big bowl of oatmeal, supplemented with some carrots for veg. Does the trick.

    I always found it funny that my most popular posts on my old blog were the WIAW posts even if what I was eating was really the same as every other post and not that exciting! I am often bored with dinner especially now because I often end up with 1. eggs or 2. a salmon or veggie burger and rice made in the Instant Pot since the stretch between afternoon nap and bedtime is the LONGEST 3-4 hours of the day and also a time when my son refuses to be put down hence no cooking.

    So when I first tried to open this through bloglovin it didnt work. I typed in your site and it worked right away.
    I have been loving soup lately! I really like tomato and anything with chicken and veggies. I dont really like any of the creamy soups and definitely not anything with crab (which is EVERYWHERE here!)

    I adore soup, so I’m glad soup season is here, although I’ve been pushing myself to cook lately too. I just don’t have the motivation, mainly because I’m kind of fried by 4 o’clock every day, although I did manage to make dinner five nights this past week, so go me.
