Opening Day Potluck AND (mostly) Meatless Monday

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! If you’re in the U.S. and in a city that loves sports, you’re probably in the midst of celebrating – or have recently celebrated – Opening Day for baseball! I love baseball season (summer! and a sport I understand) and this week was Opening Day for the Cleveland Indians.

So for today’s What I Ate Wednesday, I bring you my Opening Day eats. I didn’t go to the game (which we lost, BTW); however, our office celebrated with some good food. It was a potluck for a cause – you had to donate $5 if you brought something or $10 if you didn’t bring anything and all the money goes to our local food bank.


The day started out pretty normal … egg whites, veggies, and some fruit for a mid-morning snack.



Lunch was potluck time! Here’s the spread:

And what did I have? I admit I’m not a huge hot dog fan (and you’re not reallllly supposed to have them when pregnant – darn nitrates!) so I brought my own veggie burger and lettuce (gotta get in some veggies) and also had some nachos and a cinnamon sugar pretzel bite with the dipping sauce. Those were my contribution and I loved them.


And for a snack shortly after? Gotta have some peanuts and Cracker Jack!


Dinner was late-ish so I had a pear to tide me over.


And for dinner? Spaghetti squash with homemade tomato sauce and some parmesan cheese. Hit the spot! (and yes, that’s an olive stuffed with goat cheese I also had)


Those were my Opening Day and (mostly) Meatless Monday eats. Now, some questions for you:

  • Do you like hot dogs? If yes, what are your toppings?
  • Have you ever had a corn dog? Nope! My office didn’t believe me, either!
  • Favorite sport to watch?
