WIAW #26 & Counting

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on September 10, 2012


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. 🙂

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

  1. Maybe I should go to a haunted house too, I am not at all in my usual Halloween mood yet. Haven’t even put up any fall decorations which is very unusual for me.
    Great eats btw, your brunch looks especially good. I just love bread. Happy WIAW.

  2. I have yet to make it to an actual pie n’ burger location! I have had their food when there is a truck at an event, but this looks mighty good!

  3. Okay, so I am very envious of your brunch and that amazing looking pasta salad – yum yum yum!

    I absolutely love Halloween but haunted houses scare the crap outta me lol

  4. That macaroni salad looks really good! And how interesting that they actually put it on lettuce- like a real salad! 🙂

    Happy WIAW! Your food all looks awesome!!

      It is a very old-fashion restaurant and that is why I think they serve the macaroni on lettuce. Sometimes it is nice when things stay the same. 🙂
      Thank you!

  5. Looks like such a simple, and fun place! Your meal looks fantastic.. especially the mac & cheese 🙂

      Thank you! It was fun, we like all kinds of restaurants. And when some place has been around since the 60’s and it is still super busy there is a reason. 🙂
