What I Ate Wednesday #77

Posted on Updated on


Happy Wednesday! I don’t know why I always get so excited about multiples of 11, but I’m very pleased that today’s WIAW is #77. It also gives me another reason to link to this song, which gets stuck in my head way too often.

As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

Since last week I shared a typical busy Monday, I thought I’d share a busy Sunday instead. As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I spent part of the day at the Brooklyn Book Festival. I also had a lot of chores and a tea-date.  In terms of food (at least timing-wise), this day was anything but typical, but being flexible is part of the fun sometimes.

Late Breakfast: green pancakes (added spinach to the mix and put it in the blender) topped with peanut butter and banana —I’d totally do this again

Snacks: (unpictured) cappuccino at an outdoor cafe in Brooklyn Heights; a sliced apple  

Dinner: Hummus, eggplant & roasted pepper sandwich; mixed roasted veggies and garlicky cabbage; bean soup with nutritional yeast 

Snack: Yogurt with cereal (ugly, yes, but good) 

As much as I love summer, I also like fall a lot—and fall food. I can’t wait to play around with new (and old favorite) soup recipes and find new ways to turn my palms orange by overdoing it on pumpkin and other squashes. Maybe I’ll finally get reacquainted with my slow cooker. I’m obviously also glad about the fact that it’s getting to be legit red wine weather!

Do you have any favorite fall foods?

    Love yogurt & cereal together. I’ve been eating it almost every night for dessert.. plus a little strawberry jam & pb2 🙂

      I tried PB2 in yogurt, and for whatever reason, the flavor just didn’t do it for me. Do you just add the powder or mix it with water first?

        I just add in straight in the yogurt. You can even try 1 tbsp. of milk, and 1 tbsp. syrup too 🙂

      It was really good! It was a random experiment I will definitely try again

    Your dinner looks like everything is exploding with veggies, which in my opinion is the best kind 🙂 I agree with you on yogurt messes, they usually aren’t visually pleasing, but they are so dang good!

      Totally agree about the veggies—the more color, the better
