Hey everyone and welcome to the day after. IDK about you but I cannot wait for those election commercials to be replaced with holiday ones. 🙂 Speaking of which, it already feels like winter! We are actually supposed to get some snow today!
Here is this week’s What I Ate Wednesday!
***Just a reminder, WIAW is about sharing food and recipe ideas and embracing our love of food. It is not about judgement or comparison. We all love different flavors and combos which is what makes these posts so fun.
Without further adieu…..
This is what I ate on Monday November 5th
BREAKFAST: 7 am
Arnold 9 Grain Bread with PB2 and a cup of black tea!
How great is this mug?! I totally forgot I bought this on our honeymoon!
Low fat cheese stick and some hot apple cider. I am really trying to drink more fluids during the day.
Leftover chicken soup from this weekend. 🙂
Something about a hot bowl of soup on a cold day that makes everything better. 🙂
Last time we went grocery shopping salmon fillets were on sale for $5.99 lb so we picked up a few pounds to freeze. We immediately knew we wanted to use our new grill, and do this fish up right.
Lemon pepper, lemon juice, and dried basil.
Once again… I cannot stress enough…keep it simple! Salmon is an incredible fish, why cover it with other flavors?
A thing of beauty.
On the side, I microwaved some instant whole wheat couscous from Trader Joe’s, and steamed the last of the zucchini and carrots from our farm share.
Tip: I add chopped tomatoes and a tsp of Ken’s Light Italian dressing to my couscous. It adds a moisture and a great flavor!
DESSERT: Tonight’s dessert was pretty freaking sweet. You may be shocked to hear that it actually doesn’t involve food.
After I got home from voting last night I tweeted (something I rarely do, as my followers know) “Voted for the first time! #voteObama”
About 20 minutes later I logged into blog world and I noticed my blog views had suddenly skyrocketed! I also noticed that I suddenly had about 300 new friends on Twitter. To be honest I thought I had some sort of virus, until my friend Teresa called to tell me that Obama had retweeted me!
Yes, Barack Obama!
How cool is that?!?! We are like best friends now! Within an hr I had about 1200 re-tweets and 300 more friends. Talk about great advertising for the ol’ blog huh?! What better way to get your name out there than to have the President of the United States tweet about you?! Too cool.
It was a very sweet ending to the day. 🙂
How do you cook fish?
What is your favorite afternoon snack???
