WIAW For Two Days Straight
Wait, what is today? Wednesday? Are you sure? Maybe it’s because my meals and snacks for the past two days have been shockingly similar, or maybe all this time cooped up at my desk is starting to get to me… but I can hardly keep the days straight any more! I am not a meal repeater and need variety in my eats, so you know these must be good if I could eat the exact same thing two days in a row! Recipes will be up tomorrow, so this is just to whet your appetite!
Oatmeal, of course! Today’s flavor was chai spiced: I steeped a chai tea bag in hot water while I was finishing up last night’s dishes. When the kitchen was clean(ish) and I was ready to make breakfast for real, I removed the tea bag, added some milk and brought it to a boil. I added in my oats and chia seeds, a dash of ginger, and a few shakes of cinnamon. Sweetened with a spoonful of honey at the end – it was like a chai tea latte with some staying power!
Fruit and nuts both days! Today’s mixed was perked up with the last handful of my chocolate covered espresso beans… it’s never to early for a chocolate pick me-up, right?
A big bowl of “Cheater’s Chili” two days in a row! Sweet potatoes, lentils, chickpeas, tomatoes and onions… so simple and good! You’ll have to come back tomorrow to see why I cheated! Lunch was paired with an apple, but those are boring to photograph!
I made the mistake of running an errand hungry. I couldn’t resist the 75% off candy corn at Rite Aid, but was able to create an intervention when I got home. I made this great sweet-n-salty snack mix with air-popped popcorn dusted with cinnamon, salted peanuts, and candy corn. The popcorn fills you up before you can eat too much candy corn, and it satisfies all cravings at once!
Have you eaten a persimmon before? Until last week, I had never even heard of them! My friend’s parents have a persimmon tree in their backyard in CA, though, and so I got to try a few from the last shipment. Not so sure if I am a fan of just eating them sliced, but I am a fan of them on this pizza! They are super sweet, and so I got the idea from a fig and prosciutto sandwich I tasted over the summer in Italy. How can you go wrong with a goat cheese pizza, right? A friend and I enjoyed this pizza for dinner last night, and I am looking forward to the leftovers for tonight! You can look forward to it as well… the recipe will be up tomorrow!
