Welcome back everyone!
Thanks so much for all of the positive feedback on the interview with Healthy Page; I’m glad you guys liked reading it!
It’s mid-week which = What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by Jen from Peas and Crayons.
It was certainly a pumpkin-filled breakfast!
I’ve been making a few servings of baked oatmeal at a time, wrapping them up and storing them in the fridge. All I have to do in the morning is quickly heat them up and top with a little bit of light syrup and breakfast is ready to be enjoyed with some early-AM blog reading. Sadly, this batch of oatmeal required me to use up the last of my pumpkin, so I’ll have to restock this weekend.
The pumpkin coffee is actually the limited-time pumpkin KCup offered by Dunkin’ Donuts. I won a box in a Twitter giveaway they were running, and I’ve really been enjoying it. I’m almost out, so I’ll have to check my local DD for more!
Lunch/Snacks – Peanut butter and jelly sandwich, white cheddar Goldfish, black cherry Chobani, a banana, 100 calorie pack of almonds, water
This is what I packed in my lunch bag today.
I ate the sandwich, Goldfish, and yogurt at lunch. The Goldfish were an impulse buy at Target, and they are so, so addicting!
Later on in the day, I ate the banana, but I never got around to the almonds.
Dinner – Baked sweet potato, topped with BBQ pulled pork
This meal is so quick and easy! Before leaving for work this morning, I put a few pork chops in the crockpot with a can of beef stock. Then, all I had to do was microwave the sweet potato, shred the pork, and add a bit of BBQ sauce. So simple!
Dessert – Pumpkin spice cupcake
Yes, even more pumpkin. I picked up a few cupcakes at one of my favorite spots yesterday, and I saved this one for tonight! I’ve never had a cupcake from this particular store that hasn’t been absolutely amazing, and this one lived up to all my expectations! And I’ve got high expectations for my cupcakes people!
I’m thinking I should’ve ate a little something more with my dinner, because I’m already getting a little hungry again and those darn Goldfish are calling to me from the pantry!
What’s your favorite kind of cupcake? Sublime (where I got the cupcake pictured above) has the most amazing red velvet cupcakes, but I also love their peanut butter cup one!
