What I Ate Wednesday #11

I’m so happy it’s Wednesday!!!! Why??

BECAUSE TOMORROW IS THURSDAY AND I GET MY ULTRASOUND AND I GET TO FIND OUT IF BABY YODER IS A BOY OR A GIRLL!!!!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

(Okay, I get it in an envelope tomorrow, will give it to my fabulous baker who is making us red velvet cupcakes with a pink or blue center and I get to find out with some of my most closest friends on Saturday if baby is a boy or a girl. But either way…I’M SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!)

I’m also excited because I prepared my eleventh (really, eleven already, wowzers!) What I Ate Wednesday post yesterday. Technically it’s What I Ate Tuesday, but ya know, tomato, tomatoe.  A big thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons as usual for hosting this fabulous link up!

On to the foods!

Breakfast: Yum and a half! I had two pieces of my leftover quiche! I didn’t take a picture, because my office was dark and ugly yesterday morning because it was early and snowing out. But here is a pretty one I took when I made the quiche! I also had some decaf earl gray because that’s what I do. slice o'quiche

Snack:  Snack time hit me right at 10 yesterday. I had a S’More Luna Bar and some more decaf earl gray in my Maurader’s Map Mug. Then I snapped a selfie because I felt like it…and obviously you guys can’t get enough of me on here, right? :D

lunabarmoiLunch: First thing is first – naan bread is delicious. It is not, however, a suitable replacement for pita bread. Wegmans was toooooootally sold out of any whole wheat pita bread when Johnny and I got out groceries on Monday. *womp womp* “It’s okay, Jen,” I thought, “I’ll just get this whole wheat naan instead!” Welp, my lunch yesterday was tasty – buuuuuuuuut  I had to eat it with a fork and knife. It was some whole wheat naan that I toasted and spread with a little of this fancy new avocado hummus I bought on sale. (Avocado hummus tastes like regular hummus, in case you were wondering). I had a Morning Star Farms Mediterranean Chickpea Burger with some feta, spinach, roasted peppers, and red onion. Delish. Not as good as the Spicy Black Bean Burger that I love so much in my opinion, but I’m much more of a “spicy” gal than I am “Mediterranean”.

hummus veggieburgerSnacks: Soon after lunch I had myself and adorable lil’ clementine and two Hershey kisses that have been sitting in my desk drawer for waaay too long and tasted like I may have kept a really ripe banana in there with them at some point in time. Oh well. Chocolate fix achieved. (P.S. Like my new pink planner?! I picked it up over the weekend. I really find that I remember things better when I write them all down. I’ve been using it to log my food and workout summaries, too! Let’s hope I keep it up!)

darlingclementinekissesMore Snacks: Boy am I a hungry monster lately. I picked up some of the new simply balanced sunflower and flax crisps at Target over the weekend. They’re pretty tasty. I love the crunch!! I think they’re a bit too sweet for crackers, though. I had 5 of them to munch with 5 baby slices of cheddar cheese and about 1/2 of a suuuuper ripe pear. (It was so ripe I could only eat half of it…because the other half was mush. Oh well!) I also had another mug’o decaf earl gray. I can’t help it. I love it so much. It was also super cold in my office!snacktime

Dinner: Well my dinner plans went in a few different directions yesterday. I had planned on stir fry because it’s healthy and quick and we go to the gym on Tuesday and aren’t usually home until about 7ish. I was sooooo sad to find out that the gym decided to close at 1:30 because of the snow. It was supposed to be leg day. *sigh* I love leg day! So instead…I made mac & cheese…because that’s definitely not a post-workout meal! And stir fry is out of the question for the rest of the week now, too, because I accidentally knocked the bottle of sesame sauce off the shelf and it shattered all over the floor whilst making dinner. Oh life. Cleaning it up was a family affair. I felt less bad eating mac & cheese after mopping the entire kitchen floor after my hubby and MIL picked up all of the glass pieces and sopped up the sauce. I also made myself a quick salad with butter lettuce, spinach, cherry tomatoes, carrots, peppers, red onion, and a few croutons to eat before I sat down with my mac. I filled myself up with salad first so I didn’t eat half a pound of mac & cheese. I think that makes sense, right? It was probably closer to 1/3 of a pound instead. But ya know – progress!  Also, I’m growing a human sooooooooo imma get my mac & cheese on if I wanna.  Quincy reaaaaaallly wanted to share. I’m afraid not this time, Q!

  7. MMm Mac and Cheese…and quiche! It all looked so yummy. I swear that these gender reveal parties didn’t exist back when I was preggo. I would have gone crazy knowing that some baker knew and I didn’t. How are you surviving until the weekend?!
