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?

  1. Yay for baseball! And summer. And sports I understand. Sorry the Indians lost. Especially because it was to the Red Sox. Watching the Red Sox lose is one of my favorite things in baseball. Unless they are playing the Yankees. Then they should win. I want to attend an opening day potluck. Sounds like a ton of fun!
