Monday in Meals (WIAW)



It’s already Wednesday! I’m sort of wishing the week away because I am just so ready for the weekend to be here already. I honestly keep thinking we are a day ahead of where we actually are though in the week, probably because I was out Monday night. This always happens to me when I go out on a Monday night! I get so thrown off but it was worth it this time because I was out enjoying really good food. 🙂

Let’s discuss Monday in meals!


Um, how AMAZING does this English muffin with peanut butter look to you? Such a simple meal but always so delicious and satisfying especially with a mug of Yogi Kava Stress Relief tea. Great flavor combination!

Also, I am back to buying Thomas’ Whole Wheat English muffins. While I do still enjoy the Trader Joe’s British Muffins, I like the crispness of Thomas’ English Muffins and don’t really care much about the ingredients list as I used to. With a quick glance, it’s good enough.


I made a big salad with roasted sweet potatoes (both roasted Japanese sweet potatoes and regular sweet potatoes) plus a mix of quinoa and lentils that I cooked in the morning to have for the week.



Monday night I had a really good dinner at Allora.

We started with this margarita pizza. I could eat pizzas like this every day for the rest of my life and never complain once that I am bored with my meal.


I forget exactly what was in this salad but I do know it was a shaved Brussels sprouts with kale salad and I really liked it.


Oh, plus this order of Brussels sprouts which were cooked with bacon and I didn’t complain or say please make them without bacon. I just ate around it.

Crazy milkshakes are still a thing. Remember when I went to Black Tap for the crazy milkshakes last year? More and more restaurants are making them now too.

While this milkshake isn’t as large or as over the top as Black Tap, I enjoyed eating all of the toppings and never opened the straw to drink the actual chocolate shake. I bet that’s what happens to people who order these crazy milkshakes a majority of the time.


Linking up today with Sprint 2 The Table for What I Ate Wednesday!

Have you ever ordered one of the crazy milkshakes that have been trending? Did you like it? What were the toppings?

    Have you had the Ezekial english muffins? I just bought them for the first time and they are SO thick, hearty, and nutritious. I have been having them with lunch or dinner to add some healthy carbs. For me, breakfast has been a Quest bar and blueberries or large apple slices. I have oddly been loving the throwback flavors… peanutbutter, pb&j and chocolate chunk.

      Yes! I love everything Ezekiel! I always have the bread and the rolls in the house but lately I really like the Thomas’ English muffins again. I actually bought a few quest bars today for the first time in a really long time – I like to have one in my bag when I travel.
