WIAW – Week 20

Happy halfway through the week!

I’m glad you guys liked my craft that I shared yesterday! I actually re-browsed my Pinterest boards & found a link to the original idea; you can check it out here if you’re interested.


I can’t believe this is my 20th week participating in What I Ate Wednesday. Thanks to Jen at Peas & Crayons for hosting the link-up.

This Wednesday, I’m not sharing one particular day’s eats, just a random assortment of things that I’ve been noshing on lately.

First up, baked oatmeal.

Even though it’s been super-hot out & most people cringe at the thought of turning on the oven, I think it’s worth it for this breakfast.

Chris & I have been enjoying this simple breakfast for the past few days & we aren’t sick of it quite yet! All you have to do is combine 1/2 c. old fashioned oats, 1/2 mashed banana, 1 tsp. chia seeds, 3-4 tbsp. milk, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, & a handful of milk chocolate chips. Then, bake at 350* for about 15 minutes & enjoy! (I’ve been topping mine with a bit of syrup… so good.)

Next, I’ve been enjoying a lot of turkey sandwiches with avocado this week.

This particular sandwich was made on whole wheat bread & the “filling” consisted of 2 slices of turkey deli meat, 1 slice of provolone cheese, & half of an avocado, smashed. I’ve been seriously loving all things avocado lately!

On the side, I had some real potato chips… so good.

Last but not least, I’ve got 2 new dinners to share from this week.

BBQ Salmon with Roasted Parsnips & Brown Rice

To make the BBQ salmon, I coated a filet with BBQ sauce & green onions, then baked it at 350* for about 25 minutes. The parsnips were roasted (with some more green onions!) at 350* for about 30 minutes. If you’ve never tried parsnips, give them a go! I had them for the first time a few months ago, & now I’d say they’re a favorite!

Deconstructed Taco Bowl

To make this taco bowl, I cooked 1 lb. of lean ground beef in a large skillet. I added taco seasoning, kidney beans, salsa, & cheese, as well as a few pieces of torn tortilla. I topped the whole thing with additional cheese, sour cream, & yes, avocado before digging in… so yummy.

So there ya go… what I’ve been eating lately! Actually, I think it may be time to dig in to some taco bowl leftovers right about now. 😉

Are you a fan of avocado?

      I think they put something in the DD iced coffee to keep you coming back for more! I could easily drink one every day!
