So the budding dietitian and fellow Florida State University alumnus over at Peas and Crayons started a series of publicly documenting everything she eats on Wednesdays. It’s not about judgement, but more of a reality check. It’s become a big blog party and I figured I’d attend at least once, to see if I have fun. Here’s what I brought to the WIAW soirée, in order of eating appearance:
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with peppers and mushrooms + bacon + mango slices + 2 slices Bread Alone multigrain bread with strawberry jam (was I hungry or what?).
Lunch: The last of the lime chips hiding at the bottom of the bag (you know they’re the best) + leftover pineapple fried rice + an Earl Grey macaron from The Apple Pie Bakery at school + berries and a fabulous cream cheese dip (recipe below).
I am currently in Wine Studies with a reading load that could rival that of medical school, so we had the day off from class for “reading and study”. But of course, I found time to enjoy a lovely Spring dinner outside with my husband (one can’t read all the live-long day).
Dinner: Herbes de Provence tomatoes and mozzarella + more mango (it’s in season and very sweet) + grilled lamb shoulder chops with an orange marmalade sauce + roasted corn and red peppers + grilled asparagus + Cuvaison Pinot Noir (for studying purposes) + a few leftover Skittles + Robin’s Eggs Easter candy (I know, shameful)
The best part about the day was that I prepared dinner in the kitchen, but we used our tiny grill to cook it all while enjoying the evening air. I highly recommend this approach, especially during the week because there are fewer dishes to clean at the end of the night. The worst part of the day was forgetting to snap a picture before diving in. Oh well. There’s always next Wednesday. And by the looks of things, I seem to have no problem eating.
Join in on the fun of What I Ate Wednesday!
- 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature (1 package)
- 2 cups marshmallow fluff
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Beat cream cheese until smooth with a hand or stand mixer (using just a whisk requires a lot of elbow grease).
- Add marshmallow fluff a little at a time until you are happy with the taste (sample as you go). Add vanilla and salt.
- Dip fruit and enjoy!
