What I Ate Wednesday #95: Another Last/First

Posted on Updated on


Wednesday totally snuck up on me this week. Cheers to another What I Ate Wednesday.  As always, thanks to Jenn for hosting the weekly link party. To see more WIAW from other bloggers, visit Peas & Crayons.

Even though I’m in a rotation that has me working from home a lot—aka “professionally developing,” I still feel like I’ve been super-busy. thanks to some good and weird surprises and opportunities.

Yesterday happened to be my last first day of school maybe ever. I’m not gonna lie—I’m overjoyed at the prospect of being done with my masters in less than four months. I have no idea how the work is going to get done, but it always does, doesn’t it? I swear, though—the whole classroom must have heard the deep breaths I was taking.

Here’s what I ate to keep myself going throughout the day…

Breakfast: Pumpkin pancakes topped with ricotta, syrup, and cinnamon; plum on the side

Lunch: Tortellini soup; salad

Snack: Greek yogurt with cinnamon, berries, and cereal

Dinner: brown rice with a mix of shredded brussels sprouts, sauteed mushrooms,and roasted broccoli; turkey bacon—topped with balsamic and grated pecorino; a piece of dark chocolate with ginger

Snack: Sliced banana and blueberries with PB2 mixed with cocoa powder and more pumpkin

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently?

    That is an absolutely beautiful day of eats! What a delicious sounding breakfast!

    Congrats on making it to your last first-day of school! I had a bit of a weird transition period since I finished course work two years before I actually get my PhD. So I felt like it was important to note my last first day of classes, but then I still had more time to be a ‘student’, even without classes, since I’m working on my dissertation. Oh grad school.

    Ooooh pancakes with ricotta, such a nice idea! And pumpcake pancakes as well, yum.
    Best thing I ate was last night going out for my mother-in-law’s birthday. We shared a pudding platter…and WOW it was amazing. Why get one pudding when you can have 4??

      Ricotta is one of my favorite pancake toppings—there’s so much you can do with it.
      And I totally agree—4 is way better than 1!

      I kind of feel like it’s cheating to use “just add water” mix, but the kodiak cakes are really good!

        or “just add water, vanilla & pumpkin” is more like it
