WIAW: Ugly Sandwich

It’s Wednesday already? Thank goodness – only three more full days until the weekend and it’s also What I Ate Wednesday! For those of you new, it’s a time for sharing and checking out a random day of eats. I love seeing everyone’s eats and sharing my own! These were my eats from Monday. I was at home with FW and had lunch with Cuoghi.

Breakfast was eaten fast with a crying baby before heading out for a walk to sooth crying baby and consisted of a few bites of a nectarine, yogurt and handful of blueberries with one hand. And no phot.

Lunch, however, was different. My friend Cuoghi brought me a sandwich from Herb & Twine and it was delicious! BUT it may have been the ugliest sandwich ever. It was a vegetarian meatball sub and not very photogenic. I meant to eat half Monday and the rest Tuesday, but I couldn’t help but eat it all.

We ate outside in the new Public Square which was great, and FW slept the entire time. On the way back we took a break and met up with Nicole.

After lunch, I finished off a cookie (or two) that I had made on Sunday.

And then, FW was fussy so I put him in the baby carrier and he slept for 30 minutes! While he slept, I made some of Arman’s black bean brownie bars – they were great! I of course had to taste test them.

We didn’t get to eat dinner until late, so for a pre-dinner snack, B and I had some bread and cheese.

And dinner was toast with pesto and chicken and pasta soup. My mom had brought us a big container of soup when she came and visited and it was SO nice just to be able to take it out of the freezer and heat it up for an easy and satisfying dinner.

And that was it! I typically have dessert after dinner, but I was so exhausted I passed out on the couch shortly after eating.

 

Some questions for you:

  • Do you have dessert every night? Any go-to desserts?
  • Have you ever made any black bean-type of desserts? Or chickpea? Or snuck other healthy ingredients into desserts (like zucchini, carrots, avocado, etc.)?

  1. Yep, I definitely have dessert every night. 😀 And the fudgy factor of those black bean brownies looks amazing. I’ve made black bean brownies a few times, and it’s amazing, because they don’t need any flour, and my dad can eat them cause they’re gluten free.

    That ugly sandwich sounds really good!

  2. You’re killing this new mom thing!! I have always found mornings with littles to be the hardest, but I promise it gets easier (and easier to eat.) Babywearing is a godsend, I swear – there have been so many times when I would have gone crazy without it!!

  3. As you know, Herb and Twine is my JAM. I would do almost anything (destroy my baby’s nap after a long day in the city? Check.) for one of these sandwiches. Glad baby wearing is helping you cook. I started to feel like myself again wearing my newborn so I could (carefully) cook or do laundry or stand and type. Keeping kicking butt, Supermom! 💪💖
