WIAW #33

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on November 28,2012

Hello, Everyone. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!  I am sharing my meals from Thanksgiving day.  We had a very low-key holiday at my parents house. My mom and sister did most of the cooking. Thank you to Jenn a Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW!

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (7:30am)

Since the kitchen was already busy, we ran out to Starbucks to pick-up coffee for everyone. And we brought pastries from one of our favorite bakeries. I had a very tasty pastry that was sort a combination of a sugar donut and a croissant.

AM Snacks (11:00am)

Unpictured – I think we ate so quickly, I completely forgot to take a picture. 🙂

 We snacked on homemade guacamole (my husband’s specialty) and chips.

Dinner (4:00pm)

For Thanksgiving dinner I had turkey with gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, brussels sprouts, asparagus, sweet potatoes and rolls.  There were other dishes I skipped, my mom cooked for about 20 people but we are a small family of 5. 🙂

Dessert (7:00pm)

Pumpkin pie, of course. My sister made the pie and it was very tasty.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals!

Hello, WIAWers. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from Saturday and we finally got a break from the heat, so food sounds good again. Thank you to Jenn a Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW!

This months theme is “Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats”. This day I attended a haunted house and now I am in the mood for Halloween. :-)

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:30am)

I started the day with iced coffee from Starbucks and protein bar before my tennis class.

Brunch (11:00pm)

Since returning to tennis a few weeks ago, my husband and I have made stopping by the Gypsy Den a habit. And we have been ordering the same dishes, the bread plate and the spinach and feta scramble to share.

Dinner (6:30pm)

Once a year we go up to Pasadena for hamburgers and a haunted house. Sometimes we go with a group of friends and other times we go alone. This year, we went alone. We at dinner at Pie ‘N Burger, a place I have been going to since I was a child and it has not changed a bit. I had a hamburger with grilled onion and we shared my husbands favorite macaroni salad and a chocolate malt. They have really good pies but we were to full this trip. But the highlight of the night was our annual trip to the Pasadena Old Town Haunt. We had so much fun, it was scary but not too much. 🙂

Hello, everyone. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from Tuesday and it is a rather boring day food-wise because we have had temperatures in the low 100’s and I have been suffering with a sinus infection so not much taste good to me.

Hello, Foodie Friends. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from last Monday. I hope you enjoy my day. Thank you to Jenn a Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW!

 9/5/12 Goals:

My three fall goals are: 1) Return to Sunday marketing and cooking for the week. 2) Continue with my workout plan, trying to improve each week. 3) Stay organized and ahead of the game with all school work.

9/12/12 Goals:

My new fall goals are: 1) Eat two pieces of fruit each day. 2) Study at least 1 hour Monday thur Friday. 3) Track water intake.

Above are the goals I created for the month. So far so good, my goals are helping stay organized through the week. The only goal I am having trouble sticking to is my fruit goal, some days are better than others. 🙂

 This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:30am)

I started the day with a quick breakfast of coffee and a chocolate protein shake for the road.

 

 AM Snack (9:00am)

My favorite salad at Green2Go, the roasted chicken salad.

 PM Snacks (2:00pm)

Walnuts and roasted asparagus.

 

 Dinner (5:30pm)

A seared ahi salad from California Fish Grill. It was tasty but a little to salty for me.

Dessert (7:00pm)

I shared a “Marvelous Milk Chocolate” cupcake with my husband. We stopped by Casey’s Cupcakes in Laguna Beach and we had a hard time choosing because they were all so beautiful. And it was as good as it looks. 🙂
