WIAW: 2/26/14

Morning and happy Wednesday!

Can’t help it. :-) Pretty excited to be halfway through the work week. I’m running very late this morning, so enough chit chat, and onto the main event! Here are my eats!

Peas and CrayonsThis particular morning, I was craving a lot of flavors. I threw together a few different things to munch on throughout the morning.

unnamed (2)An everything bagel thin covered in Laughing Cow, scrambled eggs with cheese and ketchup,

(1 egg + 1 egg white) and a few grapes that are really out of season and lackluster. Is it spring yet? I really miss fresh produce. :-( Salty, savory, and a little sweet. Great way to start the day! Oh, I also enjoyed a hot cup of English Toffee coffee! I hadn’t tried this Green Mountain flavor before and I just had to buy it when I came across it at Christmas Tree Shop. FYI: K-cups are soooo much cheaper at Christmas Tree Shop! I got 66 cups for about $30!  I also picked this up at CTS. My favorite colors and it’s keeping me super hydrated.

By the time lunch came around I was craving a little spice. Growing up I was never a spicy food lover, and I don’t think I had ever tried hot sauce before meeting Nolan, the buffalo chicken king. It is safe to say that after 8 years with the king, I am a fan. I made up a batch of buffalo chicken salad using a can of chicken, 1 wedge of Laughing cow, and about 2 tbsp of Franks.

unnamed (4) unnamed (5)Delish! It was a great change of pace from my typically soup, salad or deli meat lunch. I also did plenty of snacking throughout the day. Popcorn, yogurt, and lots of fruit.

goooDinner was a comfort food favorite, crock pot chicken pie.

It’s a mix of peas, green beans, corn, carrots, and Lima beans. I topped it with a Pillsbury pie crust and baked it at 400 for about 15 minutes, until the crust was golden brown. Oh so good. :-) Since the crock pot did all the work this meal took me about 17 minutes to put together after I got home.

A little while later I was craving something sweet and I had just the thing! While standing in line at the produce market I shop at, one of these caught my eye. I am a sucker for all things hazelnut, especially chocolate so I didn’t even hesitate.

PicMonkey CollageOH.MY.GOSH. This mini chocolate bar transformed me to a magical place! It is seriously the best thing I have eaten in about 2 weeks. At only 90 calories, this .6 oz of milk chocolate and crunchy, salty hazelnuts made me giddy. And it was only $0.29! I wish I had grabbed like 10 of them. I definitely need to stock up.

Well, there ya go! Gotta run, catch ya later!

-What is the best thing you have eaten this week?

– Chocolate and caramel or chocolate and peanut butter?

    That pot pie! I’ve never had real pot pie before but it truly looks like perfect comfort food. Maybe minus the meat for me but yes, it does.
    Are Ritter Sport chocolates easy to find for you? Being from Germany I see them everywhere but I’ve been told they were hard to get over there. Oh, and chocolate and peanut/almond butter for me. Closely followed by caramel. Though actually combining all three would make for the best :).

      Hi Miss Polkadot! Yes, Ritter Sport chocolates are sold at most convenient stores with the other imported chocolates. But I shop at a European produce market so they have all kinds of German chocolates! Sooooo delicious!
