WIAW – Week 16

Happy What I Ate Wednesday & National Running Day! I celebrated the later by running 2 miles without stopping (except for a quick water break). This was the farthest distance I’ve ran non-stop, so yay me! ;-)

Today was sort of a WIAW fail for me; I only snapped a few pictures throughout the day. If you want to check out what other bloggers are eating (they probably documented their eats better than I did mine!) head on over to Peas & Crayons.

Jen chose the theme of “Sensible Summer Snacking,” for WIAW in the month of June. While I didn’t photograph any of my snacks today, I will be sure to next Wednesday. I’m actually looking forward to seeing everyone else’s sensible snacking ideas. With summer 1.5 days away (!!!!!!!!!!), I’ll definitely be at home more which equals more snacking; it’s just the way things go!

BreakfastOvernight oats with coffee

Today’s mix-ins were strawberries (so good!), walnuts, almond butter, a dash of vanilla, & a sprinkle of cinnamon – a winning combination!

Lunch – 6 inch turkey sandwich on wheat from Subway

Tuesday, today, & tomorrow are all “final days” at school. That means the kids are there in the morning taking finals (only 1 more to give!), but the teachers still have to work full days. The upside to this is that we get extended time for lunch – much better than our usually 20 minutes. Since Chris works second shift & I don’t get to chat with him much during the week, we used this as a chance to meet up for a mid-week lunch date. I went with my usual turkey sandwich, which I topped with provolone, spinach, & cucumbers (I always keep my sandwiches relatively plain).

DinnerUndone stuffed pepper casserole

This recipe is a staple in our household. I cut the green pepper a little bit larger than usual which added a new texture that I really liked.

Dessert – Oreo brownie

Tomorrow, we’re having a little celebration at work for two teachers who are retiring. Since I knew I wouldn’t have time to make anything from scratch in the middle of the work week, I went with one of my go-to, easy dessert recipes. Boxed brownie mix + vanilla frosting + crushed Oreos! It’s seriously so good & so easy; perfect in a pinch! Of course, I had to taste-test before I could serve them to others. ;-)

That’s all folks! I promise, I’ll be better with my pictures next week, especially since I’ll be on summer break!

Have you ever “spruced up” a box-mix dessert?

    I HATE that teachers and students don’t get much time to eat. I honestly think it should be illegal! For real— I HATE IT!!!!
    I like to add pumpkin puree to a boxed cake mix to make muffins/cupcake’ish things in a pinch. And they aren’t super unhealthy so I can feel okay about snagging one or two of them. :)
    I like your idea though! Mmmmmmmm!
