Hello Everyone. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from Easter, which were super simple. I had a midterm Friday night and Saturday, so I was just happy to have it very easy. Also, our day was filled with many little disasters from a dead battery and an exploding shower head, just to name a few. 🙂  Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (7:00am)

We picked up coffee at our local Starbuck’s, they make it so easy. We made scrambled eggs with onion, spinach and cheese with a few slices of lemon-pepper chicken and avocado. Also, we had assorted pastries I picked up the day before from 85C.

Dinner (7:30pm)

A birthday party at Slater’s 50/50 for my friend Mickey. We started with a Peanut Butter and Chocolate Shake with four straws (less guilt). 🙂 Next we had the Vampire Dip, made of roasted garlic, artichoke and cheese served in a bread bowl with fried pita chips. The dip was everyone’s favorite by far!!! I had the cheeseburger Salad, which I really liked. We finished with a Brownie Sundae for the birthday girl but we all had some. The brownie had bacon on top, not really my cup of tea but it was interesting to try.
