WIAW – Week 15

Well this week is flying right by, isn’t it? If only every week were 4 days! I can’t complain, though, since I’ll be on summer break in 6.5 days… but who’s counting? ;-)

**********

To find out more about What I Ate Wednesday, & to see other bloggers’ posts, be sure to check out Jen’s blog.

Breakfast

Breakfast this morning was strawberry-walnut overnight oats, with coffee on the side, as always. I’ve been out of chia seeds the past few days, & the texture of the overnight oats just isn’t the same! Don’t worry – I stopped & picked some up on my way home from work today. $7.00 well spent!

Lunch

I always pack my lunch at night to cut down on the amount of rushing around I have to do at 6:00AM. On the menu today was a simple peanut butter & jelly sandwich. While I usually pack leftovers, I ate leftovers for dinner on Tuesday, so I had to go with my old stand-by. On the side, I enjoyed some Popcorners (these are so good & so addicting!) & a pineapple Chobani.

Snacks

At the end of the school day, I had a 100-calorie pack of Blue Diamond almonds to help hold me over as I ran some errands (aka – replenished my chia seed supply). When I got home, I polished off the pineapple/strawberries I brought to work with me today. Can you tell I’m really feeling pineapple & strawberries today? Either that or we loaded up on fruit at BJ’s & need to eat it all before it goes bad. ;-)

Dinner

It’s been a few nights since I’ve actually made dinner, and it took a little self-motivating to get back in the kitchen. While I had plenty of ingredients on-hand, I didn’t particularly feel like making anything on this week’s meal plan. I’m glad I sucked it up & made this dish – chicken tender skillet – because it was quite tasty & really didn’t require too much effort. Green beans were served up on the side for a little veggie action!

Dessert

I knew what my dessert was going to be as soon as I saw this post on Sarah’s blog this morning. I followed her recipe for this “mug cake” & it was delicious! I was (pleasantly) surprised by how big the serving was – I actually had a hard time finishing it, & that’s saying a lot coming from a sweets lover. I’ll definitely be trying this again & experimenting with some different flavors & mix-ins.

There you have it, my friends! :-)

Which do you prefer – pineapple or strawberry? Neither?! My own question is tough for me to answer, but I suppose I’d have to go with… strawberry!

      Does that mean you don’t like pineapple Chobani?! That’s one of my favorite “pineapple foods”!

    Erica–
    Everytime you post a picture of your overnight oats it makes me want to eat them. it looks so delicious but I am so scared to try them. :( I think I asked you before, but how do you make your overnight oats?

      Give them a try! I wasn’t a huge fan the first time I made them, but it may take one or two tries to get the right “ratio” down pat! Definitely add in chia seeds if you have them (they sell them at Giant!) & mix in some fruit/nuts/honey/peanut butter/etc.! Let me know how you like them!
