Good afternoon! I have a new love for Wednesdays. I only have one two hour class in the morning, so it’s a short day with lots of free time! This month’s What I Ate Wednesday Theme is “Fall into good habits”.
Thanks again to Jenn for hosting WIAW. For those of you who don’t know, Jen over at Peas and Crayons hosts WIAW every week – check out her blog for more information on it and to find some new blogs to read.
My breakfast was a little different than usual. We were all out of vanilla and flavored Chobani’s, so I couldn’t make my standard overnight oats and had to make do with plain non-fat greek yogurt for breakfast. I’ve never been a fan of eating plain greek yogurt alone, or even loaded with berries. I figured that at the very least, I could use the plain Chobani to make Honey Chobani by adding a couple teaspoons of honey. It worked like a charm! (of course!) I topped it off with blueberries and pumpkin granola. Pumpkin will be making many appearances in my future breakfasts – it’s my favorite part about fall!
Lunch was a quick spinach smoothie, an apple, and some sliced strawberries before I went to my three hour block class. Fruity and delicious!
When I got home from class, I had a “homemade” brownie. I experimented with a gluten-free brownie mix the other night and it turned out great! I couldn’t even notice that the brownies were GF. They were nice and fudgy just like I like them! If you have celiac or gluten intolerance, try out the Bettie Crocker Gluten Free Brownie Mix when you want a quick “homemade” treat! (I only used a GF mix because my Dad has celiac – I don’t promote GF diets unless you need to be on one!)
I had dinner at Bellaire’s newest restaurant, Costa Brava Bistro. It opened about a week ago. My Mom and I were impressed! Bellaire doesn’t really have any higher end good restaurants, so I think this will be a welcomed addition. We started with the complimentary crostinis that were accompanied by an olive tapenade and olives.
For dinner, I had the roasted duck with cassoulet and my Mom had the snapper with crab stuffed pepper and patatas bravas. Both were delicious!
And that’s what I ate
Wednesday Tuesday! Stay tuned for my latest kitchen feat – Almond Encrusted Tilapia with Honey Lime Sauce. It’s quite tasty and easy too!
