And welcome to another edition of What I Ate Wednesday. This time it is actually on a Wednesday! Who would’ve ever guessed it!
So this is actually what I ate yesterday…
**WARNING** I did a really bad job of remembering to take pictures. These are all kind of as the bowl was down to the last few drops and then I yelled “wait” and got my phone. Also my camera was down and I had to use a horrible horrible phone so the photo quality leaves much to be desired. My apologies.
Breakfast was mashed sweet potatoes. I was really in the mood for something savory. The only thing is that they take a long time in the oven – about 40 minutes. So I think I’ll have to start prepping them the night before. When they were done, I slipped them right out of there skin, added salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme. YUM!
p.s. This was a big bowl full and them some but yeah, I was so excited by the time they were done, I just dug right in.
For lunch, I had leftovers of my favorite meal ever! My kids love it too! A big bowl of potatoes, broccoli, and cauliflower. I put the potatoes, broccoli, and cauliflower in the oven to roast. The broccoli and cauliflower all went in a glass roasting pan. And the potatoes went on a cookie sheet with a tiny drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. When it’s done, I just put the potato pieces in the bottom of a bowl and dump broccoli and cauliflower on top. It is so so good. I could eat this every meal every day. Seriously.
Dinner was pasta with as many vegetables as I could think of. I had about half of a head of broccoli left and slightly less cauliflower. So that all went in the oven for about 30-40 minutes along with some brussel sprouts which also take about 30 minutes. Then I sauteed peppers, onions, and mushrooms. Threw it all together with pasta and the last of my stir fry sauce mixed with the beginning of my hoisin sauce. With the hoisin sauce, it was a slightly different flavor then we are used to, but the kids really loved it! And we all had enormous bowls of it.
So everything we ate was in a bowl. That’s so weird and random. For some reason, I didn’t even realize it until I started writing this post. Ha! But it was all soooooooooo good!
Also, I don’t snack too much because I have a fairly sedentary job so I don’t need a lot more than this. Sometimes I just eat lunch as I work and it takes the afternoon so I might as well have been snacking.
