WIAW: # ?

Goood morning! Today I am sharing some of yesterday’s eats in hopes of inspiring others to try new flavors and ingredients. Thanks to Jenn for hosting What I Ate Wednesday, as usual.

***********

Peas and CrayonsFor breakfast yesterday, I attempted to make an omelet. I just can’t do it. IDK what my problem is but I can never make an omelet that doesn’t look like it’s half eaten already and this one was no exception. Anyway, it was stuffed with peppers and cherry tomatoes fresh from the farm, and onions and some American cheese.

IMG_1369IMG_1370It kept me very full all morning, and was great fuel for my workout. After my morning run, I was starving and a turkey sandwich came to my rescue, piled high with smoked turkey, cheese, peppers, tomato, and banana peppers. Not too exciting, but adding banana peppers gave this sandwich the extra kick that it needed and made it feel a little fancy.

IMG_1327So I threw a little party in the produce aisle yesterday when I saw that plums were $1.99/lb. I love my farm share, but it’s 99% vegetables and I have been craving some fruit lately. This one was very juicy!

IMG_1368I also found this at the grocery store and had to give it a try. Chobani with oats?! I usually add fruit and Special K to my yogurt for a little texture so this lumpy (doesn’t sound good huh?) snack was up my alley. Honestly, I liked it! It’s a bit more calories than the typical Chobani (160) but definitely tastes more substantial. I wish they came in more diverse flavors because blueberry is NOT my favorite but I def recommend giving it a try.

IMG_1362I have so many leftovers in my fridge so instead of wasting food and cooking something new, I got creative and made little buffalo chicken hot pockets with last week’s leftover shredded buffalo chicken. I used a store brand biscuits (ghetto Pilsbury) which I flattened, filled with buffalo chicken, hot sauce, and cheese, and folded closed. After 15 minutes in the oven the biscuits were golden and flaky and oozing with spicy goodness.

 

IMG_1360I will be honest, the tube came with 10 biscuits but I was only able to make 9. I used the 10th one to patch up the holes on the other 9 that I made stretching the dough too thin. LOL I served them up with some farm fresh corn on the cob and light ranch for dipping.

IMG_1359These things are ADDICTIVE little suckers! Luckily there were only 9 and Nolan ate 6 of them, or I would have been in trouble. I hadn’t made hot pockets in a while and I forgot how simple and fun to eat they really are. I used up all of my leftovers and a ton of my farm share for this week. Win. Win. How do you utilize leftovers?

  • Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken

    Crock Pot Buffalo Chicken

    Hello there. I have a super simple new recipe to share with you today. It's been very hot this last week, so spending time in the kitchen cooking has not been something I want to do. Therefor, my crock pot has been doing overtime! On Thursday, I attempted to make pulled bbq chicken, but apparently I don't have any bbq sauce so I reached for the next best thing, hot sauce! For this recipe, I used two different hot sauces, Franks, and Crystals. Crystals is a southern hot sauce that I fell in love with on our Louisiana trip! It's… Read More »
  • Farm Share Week 5

    Farm Share Week 5

    Hello! I am in a hurry this morning, but I wanted to share this week's farm share! I am so excited to see some squash and peppers in our haul. This week we got 3 different types of squash, including these odd looking Pattypan squash. Anyone know what I can do with them? We also got a tomato, a pepper, a quart of beans which I picked, beats, carrots, kale, collard greens, and basil.   By the way, did you know that basil hates the cold?! I learned this week that the best way to keep basil fresh is to… Read More »

    WIAW: Veggy-topia

    Good morning. How's it going? I had a pretty late night because I went to the Under The Sun concert in Boston! It's a 90's show featuring some of my favorite 90's bands including Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth,  Blues Traveler, and of course, Uncle Kracker. It was such a fun night, but I am just now getting out of bed after my late night. Ok, onto the eats! Can I just say that I am loving this farm share. I have been eating a wide variety of vegetables every day and I am constantly challenging myself to incorporate them into… Read More »

My name is Katy and I am a 26 yr old food lover living in the Boston area. My kitchen is my happy place and where I relieve my stress. I am always looking for new recipes to try, and restaurants to discover. I try to savor every flavor life has to offer. Sweet, sour, salty, spicy, bring it on!
