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.
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.
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 Then oven-cooked them for like 12mins.
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.
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:
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.
