Wednesday already?!? Alriiiiiiiiight! Time for another week of WIAW…but really for me, it’s always WIATuesday.
I should also make note that all of my meals/snacks up until dinner were actually prepared during commercial breaks while watching The Bachelor on Monday night. Knowing that it was going to be a late night, I figured I should get a head start on my meals for the next day. Turns out, my plan worked perfectly.
A simple batch of overnight OIAJ with lots of blueberries and topped with a little granola.
A slice of pumpkin banana bread, which I’ve decided actually didn’t turn out as good as usual. For whatever reason, the texture just seems to be off this time. I’m assuming it has something to do with my swaps in flour.
Apparently while I was making my meals on Monday night I was craving breakfast food, eh? Lunch was an amazing omelet made with two eggs and filled with lots of fresh spinach, some diced chicken, diced tomatoes, and provolone cheese. It was incredible.
A couple of hours later I snacked on a strawberry sunrise Chobani flip. It was good, but wasn’t my favorite. I definitely liked the key lime flavor better.
I hit a little bit of traffic on my way home and started getting hungry, so I ate the veggies and hummus I had brought with me while I was stuck and waiting. I’ll tell ya…I was super thankful to have those in my bag!
By the time I got home, Jay was already hard at work on making last night’s dinner. He’s such a keeper. Once I got changed, I headed out to the kitchen to join him and as the two of us were cooking and chatting, we happened to notice a lovely little sight outside our window…
Robins!! It’s so strange because when my grandparents lived here, my grandma always used to tell my mom how she’d see robins all the time, yet we never saw them at our house. Apparently, the robins are still hanging out in this old yard, which is a-okay by me.
I’ll take extra signs of spring ANY day!
So last week, I came across a recipe from Skinnytaste for a Cheeseburger Casserole. Since red meat is totally my thing these days (along with cheeseburgers), I decided to add it to the dinner rotation this week.
Okay, seriously? When she says it tastes like a cheeseburger…it really DOES taste like a cheeseburger. No joke! We followed the recipe exactly, only using veggie pasta in place of regular (it’s the only kind of rotini we had on hand).
Both Jay and I loooooooved this dish, not only because it was super easy to make but also because it tastes amazing. And we have lots of leftovers. Score!
I served up my portion with some sugar snap peas and called it a meal. And a good one, at that!
I mean, really…it has pickles on top. How could it not be good?
Soooo, I totally forgot that I had ordered a couple of boxes of Girl Scout cookies from a woman at work a few weeks ago. Welllll, they arrived yesterday…
Two of my favorites – samoas and trefoils. Mmm mmm mmmmmm. Needless to say, they were broken into after dinner last night. Ohhh yes…it’s a good thing Girl Scout season only comes around once a year. I cannot be trusted around those darn samoas!
Questions for the Morning:
- Have you had any Girl Scout cookies yet this year? What are your favorites?
- What are some of your favorite signs of spring?
