It’s time for another exciting episode of … What I Ate Wednesday! That’s right, it’s already Wednesday. And for me, it’s my pseudo Friday, because I’m off work tomorrow and Friday! Yippee!
This post features my eats from last Friday. It was a semi interesting day of eats, because it started with a somewhat normal work day, but since we were going away for the weekend, we had very few groceries. And then we were traveling and then we were in NYC Friday night! So, this post features 2 cities in one day.
The day started out with a non-typical breakfast. As I mentioned, we didn’t have many groceries, so I had some grapes and a few bites of B’s peanut butter toast. I wasn’t too hungry, so a few bites were all I needed.
I was starving by my usual mid-morning snack time, and I opted for half a banana and some peppermint bark.
I hadn’t brought a lunch, so I decided to walk over to Stone Oven. I got my FAVORITE salad, Jaina’s salad. It has chicken, feta, croutons, tabbouleh, couscous, roasted red pepper and their amazing bread. I ate the whole thing up.
I left work a little before 5 to head home to finish packing, grab a snack, and head to the airport. My snack was a cookie or two from our holiday cookie exchange the day prior. Look at all those cookies!!
At the airport, I grabbed some mentos, a lemonade and gum and then we headed to NY.
I was so hungry by the time we got into the city and met up with my friend Jane. It was after 9:30, and we grabbed some Mexican food at a local place near her and it was great.
Chips, guac and three tacos later, I was stuffed. Not a bad start to a fun weekend in NY!
Some questions for you:
- Do you have any upcoming trips planned? I’ll be back in NY again soon to spend the holidays with my family!
- What’s your favorite holiday cookie or treat? I love peppermint bark! But love the simple shortbread cookies that my mom makes.
- Do you have any go-to meals when you have no groceries?

We have a cookies exchange at work today and I’m so excited! It’s the best way to get to try some new desserts 🙂 Also, the chips and guac look soooo good!
Yay what are you bringing
I have so much respect that you at peppermint bark with a banana! I LOVE stone oven- One of my favorite spots in Cleveland!
Oh man, that salad looks AMAZING. And seriously, if all those cookie were in my house.. well, they wouldn’t be anymore. You have the restraint of a saint.
Yay for Christmas cookies! I haven’t had many this year, but I’m going to make LOTs this week, Lord willing!
Yay what are you baking?
mmmm i had the best taco trio on Monday night at my fave local Mexican restaurant as well! one of my favorite meals. i rarely have groceries, so my go-to meals are always salads from the local natural market or ordering in skinny tacos or sushi.
