WIAW – Week 26

Hey everyone!

Thank goodness it’s only a 4-day work week! Even though it’s Wednesday, I feel as tired as I usually do on Friday. Regardless, I have to push through the next two days!

This week’s What I Ate Wednesday post is actually what I ate Monday. Since Monday was a holiday, it was the easiest day to photograph my meals. Surprisingly, even though I was at home (and that’s usually when I do a lot of snacking) I only ate breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert – no snacking this particular day!

BreakfastPumpkin chocolate chip baked oatmeal


Ah yes, Monday was when that thing of beauty was born! I actually made it last night as well and wrapped/refrigerated it for breakfast this morning. After a 45-second warm-up in the microwave, it tasted just as fresh-baked as the original.

LunchPeanut butter and jelly on whole wheat with a side of cracker chips and Chobani



I spotted these Pepperidge Farm cracker chips for the first time at Target this weekend (I can’t find this specific product on their webpage, so I’m thinking they’re new). I love the “crunch factor” of having chips with lunch, but I’m always looking for healthier options as well. These are fantastic!

DinnerBBQ salmon (topped with scallions) with a side of brown rice, green beans, and a dinner roll


I love this dinner and it couldn’t be any easier to prepare. All you have to do for the salmon is coat it with BBQ sauce and sprinkle with scallions! Then I bake it at 350* for about 25 minutes. I buy pre-packaged ready-to-microwave green beans at the store and the brown rice cooks in 90-seconds! The whole dinner probably took 5 minutes to prepare – a winner in my book.

DessertSmall dish of swirl with rainbow sprinkles


I asked Chris to pick me up a surprise from Dairy Queen when he had to run out for a quick errand. Clearly, I was so into this ice cream that I just barely remembered to snap a picture. I usually get a Blizzard at DQ, but you can’t go wrong with a classic like this!

Alrighty, off to work on some stuff for school + grad class; I’m already feeling the pressure of being back in the swing of things.

Are you a Dairy Queen lover like me? What’s your DQ go-to?

    The first place I lived in after college was right across the street from Dairy Queen and I made way too many stops there. I always made it a point to try a different Blizzard each time : ) Butterfinger was one of my favorites!

    What a nice and relaxed, FUN day of eats! The oatmeal bake looks genius and I love your lunch. So simple yet satisfying. I ate two PB sandwiches with no crusts each day from elementary school til the day I graduated high school! The chips look good, I love finding new crunchy snack products, I always look for ones with the biggest serving sizes possible 😉 and I can’t believe your din took just 5 minutes to prepare! It looks like a restaurant meal! And finally, can’t go wrong with swirly DQ, you just can’t!
