Hi there friends! Happy Wednesday and more importantly, happy What I Ate Wednesday! Thanks to our hostess, Jenn, for the opportunity to share a delicious day of eats. Today is going to be a great day– I can tell. Students today and tomorrow have a half day (and get out at 10:30), and teachers have to do professional development for the rest of the day. I happen to like getting “professionally developed” and it will be an easy day on the teaching front since all of our classes are only 25 minutes long!
I created a pool of sesame seed butter alongside my oats, cooked in water with flax, cinnamon, sea salt and vanilla bean powder. I added a sliced banana and some unsweetened coconut flakes as well. Such a yummy combo!
I made a batch of my massaged kale salad on Saturday (I was craving it big time!), so I enjoyed that for lunch. I also had a bunch of raw veggies (cucumber, daikon, grated carrots and grape tomatoes), raw flax crackers, raw zucchini sticks, and raw Dr. Cow tree nut cheese. Ummm. . . I just realized this whole meal was entirely raw!
I snacked later in the afternoon. I was craving something sweet, chewy, salty and crunchy all at the same time, so what better way to satisfy those cravings than some dry roasted edamame and a few all fruit and veggie leathers?
The hubby and I celebrated life with a date night at one of our favorite restaurants called Chardonnay’s over the border in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
We decided to order a bunch of things all at once, and when the food came out, it was almost embarrassing how much food we had at the table. Not only did the people dining next to us marvel at our “feast” as they called it, but so did our waiter. In our defense, we took a lot of it home! Also, not all of it was vegetarian (husband’s gotta have meat!) so you won’t see everything we ordered here on the blog.
We shared a tomato and mozzarella grilled pizza, which was amazing! I dream of this pizza– it’s one of my favorites ever because I heart the fresh tomato and fresh mozza piles, as well as the pesto slathered on the dough.
I also demolished this pear and gorgonzola salad, complete with candied walnuts and pineapple vinaigrette. It too is one of my favorite salads in the world.
I couldn’t resist an order of sweet potato and regular fries either!
What an epic dinner– it definitely went down in the history books as perhaps the dinner in which we had the most food on the table at once!
I am not going to fool you all– there certainly was a dessert consumed at home, but I failed to snap a pic. Just imagine some peanut butter cup and oatmeal cookie ice cream served over a blondie! You better believe I was passed out on the couch within fifteen minutes of eating dessert!
What’s the best thing you ate this week?
