Time for my favorite post of the week!
What I Ate Wednesday is such a fun way to get a glimpse into other people’s lives. It shows you their priorities, goals, cravings, aversions, daily timeline, and the flavors they savor. I have discovered tons of products, restaurants, food combos and ingredients from reading others’ WIAW posts, and I hope to inspire the same.

Ok lets get to the eats!
**Tuesday, January 8, 2013**
One of the new-er things my doctor has me doing is waiting a whole hour after I take my medication to eat or drink anything. This has resulted in packing breakfasts that I assemble once I get to work.
Organic cinnamon oatmeal from Trader Joe’s, a hard boiled egg, and a cup of Golden French toast coffee. Unfortunately, this was the last of my favorite k-cup flavor. 😦 Time to go shopping!
Red peppers are one of my absolute favorite vegetables! They have so much flavor and they are such a beautiful color.
(The grapes were part of lunch)
Black forest ham and cheese on 9 grain bread, with all the veggies except olives (YUCK) and jalapenos. I also skip the oil/dressing, and put on my own fat free stuff at home.
Last night was date night! Nolan was in charge this week, and he made us a reservation at The Dolphin. For Christmas, I bought him (us) a Groupon at this local seafood restaurant, because it was wayyy too good a deal to pass up!
The Groupon was $30 for a lobster dinner for two! It included a shrimp cocktail appetizer, twin lobsters, and 4 sides. AND when we ordered, the waiter informed us that since we were getting the lobster, we were entitled to a few “upgrades” if we so desired. Oh, we desired.
We started with some bread
Then came the colossal shrimp cocktail
Nolan “upgraded” his meal by adding some scollop stuffing for $4
HOLY FEAST!!!!! Aw just look at that face.
(Nolan is the WORST photographer)
What did we learn tonight folks?
Nolan and I are NOT white tablecloth people. By the end of the meal, our table looked like a bunch of 5 yr olds had a food fight on it. But we had so much fun cracking open our crustaceans and of course playing musical forks.
At the end of the evening, our bill came to a whopping $11 (The “upgrades” plus tax) The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and it was worth every penny! Our only regret? We didn’t buy 2 Groupons.
Another day of great eats, and another very successful date night. 😀
