Hello all and welcome to another What I Ate Wednesday! I just love Wednesdays. Today I will get countless ideas and recipes to add to my collection. *food nerd*
Sorry it’s so blurry! I am still getting used to eating so early in the morning. As you can tell, I’m not much of a morning person/photographer at 7am.
Grapes with Laughing Cow cheese (a favorite snack of mine), chopped bell peppers with roasted red pepper Sabra Hummus , and the main event…a chicken and avocado salad stuffed tomato! Say that 5 times fast!
Remember my lunch goal for this school year? Well my first attempt was this little guy!
So?! How did I do?!
Ok so it didn’t look EXACTLY like the picture but it still tasted really good! And I got rid of some leftovers. Every week, Nolan and I make what we call “bonus chicken.”
Bonus Chicken- (noun) Extra chicken cooked in anticipation of future meals.
Last week we made a stir fry one night and we purposely cooked twice the amount of chicken we needed. We used what we needed and the rest became bonus chicken which is stored in the fridge and used for salads, additions to pasta sides, pizza toppings, omelets, the possibilities are endless. …You’re at the edge of your seat aren’t you? Ok, I’ll get off my chicken rant and just give you the darn recipe.
One step. That’s it. This made about 2 1/2 servings.
I have yet to have a stuffed food item that I didn’t love. Stuffed mushrooms, stuffed peppers, stuffed haddock, stuffed lobster, stuffed crust, stuffed spaghetti squash, double stuffed Oreos. …Sorry, another food rant. Onto dinner.
I took out some cod before work this morning and it was defrosted by the time I got home and ready to be cooked! I slightly modified this recipe, a favorite of ours, to concoct dinner.
While the fish was baking, I made the sauce. Instead of canned tomatoes and jalapenos, I took out the fresh tomatoes and jalapenos we haD from Bobbin Farm. I boiled the tomatoes and then mashed them up, skins and all, and added oregano, basil, and garlic salt.
Served over whole wheat pasta…..dinner was served!
Now many of you are thinking “that looks too hard!” This meal literally took me 25 minutes to make. While the fish was baking, I whipped up the sauce and the pasta. It’s really not that hard/time consuming to make a decent meal. DON’T GIVE ME EXCUSES……
Last night I got a craving for something chocolaty! Luckily, I had the new chocolate chunk Chobani on hand and I had been dying to use it! I followed this recipe from the Chobani website to satisfy my cravings. I made a few slight modifications because I don’t have a raging sweet tooth and a whole bag of chocolate chips AND 1 cup of sugar sounded excessive.
Now, you may be thinking “Jeeze Katy, that’s a crap load of yogurt to consume in 1 day! Well, this may have something to do with it….
OH YES! I came home from my wedding weekend, and imagine my surprise when I found a giant case of Chobani on my doorstep.
The wonderful people at Chobani have sent me their finest, and guess what? You can be the lucky recipient of a crap ton of yogurt too!
Oh yes! SLF has been around for about 6 months now, and I finally have my first sponsored giveaway. When I first started my blog, I told myself that when people started sending me free food, I had really made it. This is me making it.
