WIAW: Dessert Before Dinner

Welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday! This week looks remarkably like last week’s menu but what can I say- I’m a creature of habit!

Can I just say that I have been having a hard time snacking sensibly since school ended. Now that I am in summer mode, I have much more free time, and I spend way too much time staring into my refrigerator. One thing that has helped me make some good decisions is pre-cutting vegetables.

Remember my produce rainbow?

Well after I took that picture I immediately cut up the peppers and cucumbers so I had a sensible, quick snack ready at a moment’s notice!

Since we only had a half hour break for lunch during our professional development, I ran across the street to Gerard Farm. Gerard Farm is a local turkey farm. They were forced to close a few years ago and they just reopened its doors! I had been to Gerard’s for ice cream but never for food.

Inside they have a wide variety of pre-cooked meals and sides. It has a very homey feel. They are famous for their turkey dinners and turkey pot pies! I will definitely have to get one in the near future.

Today I got a chicken salad sandwich on wheat bread with a side of cucumber salad.


A rainbow hummus plate! Very sensible 🙂 Orange and yellow peppers, grape tomatoes, and cucumbers!


Oh yes, today I had dessert before my dinner! Birthday Cake!!!


A repeat from last week….. homemade pizza! In my house, a tradition is that the birthday person gets to pick whatever they want for dinner. (I always pick steak.) Brian wanted pizza, so pizza we had!

Cheese pizza

Pepper, onion, and broccoli pizza. Soo delicious!


A slice of pizza and some yummy salad. I tried a new dressing today and loved it. There is so much flavor!

My choices were not the best today, but a birthday celebration is a time for fun and not counting calories.


Chocolate or vanilla cake?

    I LOVE a hummus and veggie snack!

    You can’t show cake without telling what kind….. 😉

    that pizza looks so good. Veggies and hummus is like my favorite snack. Although I haven’t really had as satisfying hummus since my trip to Israel. They just know how to make amazing hummus there.

      Oh really? Trader Joe’s usually has great hummus. Is there is one near you, I seriously recommend checking it out!

    Happy WIAW! Yummy eats! 🙂 Dessert before dinner? Why not!?! I had homemade pizza for lunch today. But after seeing pictures of yours.. I want some for dinner, too! 😀

      Happy WIAW to you too! I just love homemade pizzas. It’s such a great way to get rid of leftovers. This summer I really want to try grilled pizza!

    I am a non-chocolate cake kind of person. But I don’t mind marble (just a touch of chocolate)!

    That store looks so cute!

    • savorlifesflavors June 20, 2012, 9:55 pm

      The store is family owned. It was very upsetting for the town when they had to close, so we are all excited to have them back!

  • StoriesAndSweetPotatoes June 20, 2012, 4:24 pm

    I love the produce rainbow!!

  • Kailey June 20, 2012, 7:35 pm

    wow that pizza looks amazing!! The cheese is melted perfectly 🙂

    • savorlifesflavors June 20, 2012, 10:01 pm

      My dad is a pizza master! He can throw a pizza together like no one I know. I am hoping to inherit the skill!

  • Kat @ a dash of fairydust June 21, 2012, 7:07 am

    Vanilla cake all the way! 🙂
    And that pizza seriously looks delicious… mmmh!
