Happy Wednesday ya’ll! I’m thrilled Wednesday is here – for some reason, time seems to be crawling this week. Probably because I actually have a little time breathe! Oh well – it’s Wednesday which means it’s time for another installment of What I Ate Wednesday!
First, let’s start with this picture of me and the apple that was seriously half the size of my giant head. Impressive, right?
I started off last week feeling great and having high hopes for getting back on track after a week of eating out a lot. Oatmeal and bananas!
I meal prepped and had this fantastic salad for lunch on Tuesday. Spinach, quinoa, chicken, tomatoes, black beans, and salsa – super flavorful and filling!
Unfortunately, that’s when I got all out crazy sick. So I spent the rest of the week on the couch, wrapped in blankets like a burrito, watching Breaking Bad, and drinking hot water mixed with honey. I seriously think hot water and tea is the best medicine around…yum!
On Friday, after working half a day, I headed on down to Milwaukee. It was Jessi’s birthday last week, so I had to celebrate with my BFF. When I got home, my dad took pity on me and my hoarse voice and made me chocolate chip pancakes. Best dinner ever, amiright?!?!?! Mmhmmm.
Anywho. On Saturday I met up with Jessi for a girl’s day! We saw Divergent, which overall I really liked. It started off a bit slow, but ended pretty strong! And can we talk about the actor who plays Tobias (am I too old to be saying that? #noshame). After the movie we went to the Cheesecake Factory and out for fro yo. It was fun to spend a day with my bestie!
Saturday night Papa Dino struck again and made a fantastic venison roast with veggies. I’ve been eating leftovers all this week!
Sunday morning I had poached eggs (covered in cheese, ha!) for the first team. They were pretty good. With a side of bacon because…well…why not?!
Finally (seriously, this post got long!) Papa Dino finished the weekend strong by grilling steaks, sautéing mushrooms AND making a grilled romaine salad. Have you ever had a grilled romaine salad? It’s so good – the lettuce gets a great smokey taste and with freshly grated parmesan cheese – WINNING COMBO!
And for a bonus, Jessi sent me home with her homemade funfetti cake with homemade marshmallow frosting. No words, people. No words. Just pure sweet goodness!
It was a tasty, tasty week – anytime I get to go home and have my dad cook for me is a total win for me!
