Wednesday night, party night (WIAW)

I’m having a party with Jenn at Peas and Crayons every Wednesday night!

Peas and Crayons

What I ate Wednesday is way to share with y’all everything I ate on Wednesday and hopefully get you involved too. Feel free to share something  about a favorite food you had on Wednesday or any other day during the week. I’ll either be showcasing a few of my favorite meals, or giving a full Wednesday recap. Since I’m already a day late, I’ll show you what I had yesterday

First up breakfast:

Sweet or savory? Pancakes or eggs? Coffee? definitely coffee. Breakfast could possibly be my most favorite meal of the day. I wake up for the sheer pleasure of starting the day our right with a fabulous meal.  Other times I wake up stumble to the kitchen prepare a little somethin somethin and tow it back to the room with me.

 French Toast

One slice of bread dredged in a beaten egg with a splash of soymilk. Topped with 1/2 grilled banana, 1 tbsp nuttzo, a dab of pumpkin butter and sprinkle of apricot granola. And a cup of joe of course.

 

Lunch:

75 minutes of hot vinyasa left me wanting protein and apples. Yoga was…uneventful. Maybe I should have been concentrating more instead of letting my mind wander. It’s so hard to be still sometimes. Ya know!?

Egg sandwich

A fried egg between a toasted english muffin topped with one morning star sausage link and a glob of Sadie’s salsa. On the side was a handful of Food Should Taste Good Chips in their Olive flavor, new for me. A sliced apple with Stoneyfield apple cinnamon yogurt (also new) for dipping. Both the chips and the yogurt were very good. I highly recommend them.

Dinner:

The hubs and I had another date night at the YMCA. I think he’s the one dragging me to the gym now, instead of vice versa. He ran two miles and lifted weights while I ran a slooooow five miles on the treadmill. It took way longer than I care to admit to run five miles. It’s not that I felt heavy or sluggish just a little wore out. Maybe 75 minutes of hot yoga is not such a good idea the same day as long run, you think? After our date we picked up L.a and went to a small Mexican establishment near our home for a fundraiser. The restaurant gave back 15% of our meal to L.a’s school.

Gauc, salsa, and chips shared among the table 

 Vegetable burrito with a side of refried beans

Look at all that veg! I was so hungry I started eating before taking a pic. oops. The burrito came with rice but I requested beans instead for the added protein. I was so surprised at how fresh and clean the vegetables tasted, definitely not frozen. The flavors were mild and comforting.

The night ended with a little

Dessert:

and a small glass of vino.

If you’ve never had Toblerone run out and get some now, or ask for some for Valentines Day. In my opinion the original is the best but any variety will do.

 Nite. Tomorrow’s Friday!

In a pinch? A fresh off the treadmill glow!

This is going to be a really random post. Part this blog to express myself and talk about things I love. A few of those topics in no particular order.

  • food (well duh)
  • health
  • fitness
  • family
  • love
  • yoga
  • fashion
  • makeup

I was reading Kaths post the other day about organization and noticed that her makeup box compared to mine is tiiiiiny. Now I don’t know about you all but my makeup stash is twice that size.

Just to add to that stash I went shopping for lip gloss and ended up walking out of Sephora with this.

 Iv’e read really good things about NARS especially their best selling blush in orgasm (where do they come up with these names?).

Allure describes it as a pinky peach color (pinch)? A fresh off the treadmill glow! Count me in!

After getting home and experimenting with the products, I thought to myself “Did I really need all of this”? Of course not but I did need lip gloss remember and that was whole reason I went to Sephora in the first place.

Anywho,

The blush is awesome, the lip gloss not so much. It leaves glitter stains! Ugh, what’s a girl to do!?  So I guess what I’m trying to say is, don’t buy this lip gloss, stick to what you know. I think I’ll be taking everything back and punching the blush separately.

Do you have a favorite lip gloss? Have you ever tried buxom?

Now for the rest of yesterday meals:

Snack: 6:00 pm

Small sbux coffee (not my fave but it did the trick) and a small apple, while waiting for L.a’s choir practice to be done.

Dinner: 8:00 PM

The wine was only $5.99 a bottle at Whole Foods. It was very good. I had one glass while cooking and another with dinner.

 

The photographer went a little crazy.

Clearly I was enjoying myself.

Okay that’s enough!

 

Chicken quasadillas with salsa, pea avocado (I’ll explain later) and tortilla chips on the side.

Her plate 

 If you look real close you’ll notice the burnt edges. actually they all turned out that way on one whole side I just flipped them over so you couldn’t see it. Note to self: Learn how to use the broiler

They tasted really good though thanks to some awesome tortillas and hot salsa, both from AZ.

 

 

 Still no dessert waiting for Wednesday nights dinner outing.
