Happy half-way through the week!
Another Wednesday = another What I Ate Wednesday. Be sure to head over to Jen’s blog – Peas & Crayons – to check out the other bloggers involved in the link-up.
Breakfast – Cereal with blueberries & (unpictured) iced coffee
Since I had to get out the door relatively quickly, I threw together something fast. I found some random cereal in our pantry & added a handful of blueberries for a little something extra.
AM Snack – (unpictured) 100 calorie pack of almonds
I ate these on our drive to the zoo!
We spent quite a bit of time walking around the zoo before thinking about food.
Lunch – Cheeseburger & fries with a diet Coke
Definitely not the healthiest lunch, but options were limited & it did the trick. It was actually a pretty good cheeseburger, & I’d estimate I ate about 1/2-3/4 of the fries.
We walked around the zoo for another hour or so, then eventually headed home.
PM Snack – Smoothie made with Vega Bodacious Berry Energizing Smoothie, 1 frozen banana, 1 c. almond milk, blueberries, & 1 heaping tbsp. vanilla Chobani
The smoothie actually made enough to fill 2 wine glasses… the more, the better!
Since my dinner tonight was nothing special, instead I’m going to share a new recipe that I created yesterday afternoon.
Buffalo Turkey Sliders
- 1 lb. lean, ground turkey
- 1/3 c. buffalo sauce (I used mild, but I don’t like spicy foods.)
- About 1/2 c. bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- Salt, pepper, & celery salt to taste
- Combine all ingredients.
- Form slider-sized patties & bake at 375* for 30 minutes.
To bake the sliders, I put a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet so that the heat could circulate around the entire burger. If you’re unable to do this, I’d simply flip the burgers half-way through cooking. Also, I didn’t have slider buns (& didn’t want to spend the $ on them), but I did have regular burger buns that needed to be used. Cutting them in half did the trick just fine (even if they look a little silly).
Toppings were kept simple with just a bit of ketchup & mustard.
A few things before signing off tonight…
First, be sure to enter my GoodBelly giveaway (you have until Friday to do so!). It supports a great cause.
Second, I recently updated the Recipe page. It hadn’t been touched since February, & I added 18 recipes that I’ve shared since then! (Note to self: add buffalo turkey sliders recipe!)
Third, I’m in the process of updating the What I’m Reading page. My Google Reader has grown exponentially, so expect that to be totally up-to-date tomorrow (check it out if you’re looking for some new blogs to read!).
Fourth, I’m so excited that Chris & I will be visiting Revel in Atlantic City to celebrate our anniversary! Which brings me to one of tonight’s questions…
Have any locals been to Revel? Thoughts/suggestions? We’re only staying for one night!
What’s the best thing that you ate today?
