What I ate Sunday

How quickly is this week going? It helps having had Monday off I know…

The sun has still been shining which is crazy. In fact, I’m not sure I should even type it as I don’t want to jinx it. Let’s prepare for rain. Or snow. Who knows! Funny side story, my parents just got back from Barbados all brown and tanned (there’s no bitterness in my voice, is there…?) and then my mum sits in the garden for an afternoon in Britain and gets absolutely fried because she didn’t put suntan lotion on. Oh the irony.

I thought this week I’d do What I ate Wednesday Sunday as it was pretty darn tasty, if I do say so myself.

 

Thanks to Jenn as always for hosting this party. Let’s get started then!

Breakfast was something a little bit crazy for me. I tried quinoa oatmeal.

I’m not going to lie, this will never replace normal oatmeal. It was alright but nothing amazing. Quite a nutty taste. OK I probably could have put something more than just almond milk in it but I’m used to just plain oats so I was all at odds with what to do. I’m not good with change, people.

Lunch however was a show-stopper. I was inspired by Sara’s recipe HERE which I just had to make at the nearest opportunity as it sounded so good.

Mine doesn’t look nearly as good but it tasted AMAING. Ben looked aghast at what I was making (“goat’s cheese….and strawberries…in an omelette???”)

I made the strawberry sauce as per Sara’s instructions, using a little bit of Stevia and organic strawberries, microwaving them up to get them all jammy and amazing.

Absolutely heavenly.

This has been happening a lot around these parts as well. Thrown in the microwave in a hardy container, then sprayed with Fry Light and coated with salt. Cannot. Get. Enough.

Dinner was two tortilla pizzas. Yes two, I am a pig. No judgement please.

Can I just say that when lunch requires two dinner place mats you know it’s going to be good.

I used wholemeal tortillas, covered them with a home-made tomato sauce using half a tin of chopped tomatoes and a load of Italian herbs. I then covered it with a whole load of veggies (onion, zucchini, mushrooms), chopped chicken and blobs of cream cheese. And BBQ sauce. Just because Winking smile Then oven-cooked them for like 12mins.

So good.

An honourable mention also needs to go to Monday night’s dinner. Strawberries, quinoa with a tablespoon of honey mixed in, and feta on salad.

Salty, sweet…deeelicious.

And Ben even enjoyed this. In fact, if I remember correctly he said “can we have this again?” Jackpot!

And my outfit featuring two items from my shopping adventure:IMG_4280

Apologies for the concentrated look on my face…there’s no non-awkward way to take a selfie

Top from Warehouse (new!), jeans from Top Shop, wedges from Dorothy Perkins (new!). Absolute school girl error though in wearing my new shoes to work and then walking to the shops at lunch in them. Stupid. Now I have two big old blisters.

What’s the best thing you ate today? I think mine was popcorn as part of my lunch at work…see, I’m addicted.

What’s your favourite pizza (or tortilla pizza) topping? Mine is BBQ chicken with loads of veg.

Does your partner eat the same food as you? My hubby will normally eat what I eat but if it sounds ‘too healthy’ he will opt out and have something more “manly’”, like cheesy pasta. He avoids sweet potato like the plague, it’s heart-breaking.

  1. I too tried Sarah’s omelet creation, and couldn’t agree with you more about how fantastic it is! I seriously wanted to head right back into the kitchen and make another one.. boy was it hard not too, Ha Ha!

  2. I’m loving the pizza counter at Asda right now (although I often make my own pizza with wholemeal dough) – I top mine with spicy chicken, ham, mushrooms, onions and garlic oil 🙂 Mr PoP is usually pretty good, but he also opts out of some things when they seem too healthy (or just a little bit strange!). He’s usually very open to trying things though, albeit with a little persuasion. The main problem for us is that I usually cook from fresh and he is very much a tin and packet man – but he is a quick learner 🙂

  3. There is no way that just one tortilla pizza would have been enough to fill you up. Two sounds perfect! Great idea with topping them in cream cheese- perfect if you’re out of shredded cheese too. My favorite pizza is just plain cheese because I’m boring like that. I also like veggie pizzas (minus the olives), bbq chicken… Our local pizza place also used to make this salad-esque pizza with shredded lettuce, tons of veggies, and cream cheese. Oh, heaven in my mouth 🙂

  4. There is NO replacement for oatmeal!! I do love steel cut oats, but nothing will ever be as comforting to me as traditional rolled oats. They just remind me of childhood 🙂

  5. I tried quinoa porridge once, although I tried it with flakes, and I didn’t like it- it was too savoury and grainy or something?
    Andy often eats the same as me, but he likes to have meat a few times a week so then we will have separate meals (although sometimes we can start with the same thing and he just adds meat to his)

  6. That omelet looks awesome! It definitely have the sweet and savory combo going on, which I love! 🙂

  7. Mmm, strawberries and goat cheese in an omelette? That sounds fantastic right about now. And I love the shoes! I’ve totally made that same mistake before too, and now whenever I get a blister from simply walking in uncomfortable shoes I get a little mad at myself..because then that blister hurts inevitably during a run the next day. All in the name of cute shoes haha.

  8. Squee! I’m so excited you tried the omelet, and even more excited that you loved it! Isn’t the jam-goat cheese combination incredible? I tried it with raspberries the other day and enjoyed it even more. I’m thinking blueberries will be next. 😉

    The tortilla pizzas sound and look heavenly. I’ve had a major pizza craving on my hands lately, and no matter how many pizzas I make, it just won’t go away! Pictures like yours don’t help, ya know! 😉 My favorite pizza toppings include pesto, chicken, gouda, parmesan, mozzarella, caramelized onions (although probably not with pesto!), and fresh tomatoes. But you know what? I really like ANY type of pizza. BBQ chicken is another favorite of mine, too.

    LOVE the wedges and new top–great choices! Oh, and I’ve made the same schoolgirl error far too many times. Whenever it happens, I promise myself I’ll never do it again, but always seem to forget a few weeks later. Gahhh!

    Hope you’re having a lovely week, Anna! <3 xoxo

  9. Loooove your new outfit!! And all those eats look awesome 🙂 I could totally go for those pizzas right now, and I definitely need to try that strawberry salad. Any fruit with feta is awesome in my book!!
