WIAW: Enchilada Casserole

Cheers to Wednesday! I don’t know about you – but even with being on maternity leave, having Monday off makes the week fly by. How is already Wednesday? I’m not complaining – I’m pumped and ready to share today’s What I Ate Wednesday. This was last Wednesday’s eats!
The day started off with a trip to the West Side Market. I ended up buying a bunch of fruit while I was there, so breakfast was a lot of melon and watermelon, plus the last 2 Boobie Balls (aka energy balls for all you non-breastfeeding folks). 20160831_114126

Lunch was a combo of a salad I had put together from leftovers (corn, beans, part of a turkey burger) plus some toppings from the Heinen’s salad bar, including tabbouleh, quinoa and tortellini!

Afternoon snacks included some bread and sweet potato with a variety of nut butter (I had almond butter and two varieties of peanut butter) and some more fruit salad.

Fresh fruit from the market. Yup, that’s a pacifier in the background.

B’s sister was downtown after work and invited us out for beers. I had a nice saison- but I was pretty tempted to get a pumpkin beer!

Dinner was SO good. FW had taken two solid naps during the day, so I was able to do meal prep and prepare Enchilada Pie from Skinny Taste. I had gotten most of the veggies from the West Side Market that morning and all day was looking forward to this enchilada-type casserole.

Speaking of enchilada casseroles, when i mentioned the dinner to B, he reminded me of the bit from one of his favorite comics, Felipe Esparza  (from the Whats Up Fool podcast).  I couldn’t fins the actual bit we saw him perform online but if you watch this you get the idea:

The pie was so goos and easy. And we had leftovera for lunch plus another dinner now in the freezer! 

And that was it. There we go – another What I Ate Wednesday
Some questions for you:

  • Have you had any pumpkin beers or other pumpkin themes treats yet?
  • Do you have a favorite podcast?

    • I know, isn’t it the best?! I have to plan meals that can be done in stages so that I can get it done when I can. This was perfect for that – I was able to do the veggies during the first nap and put it all together/assemble right before it went in the oven!

  1. Man I need some really fast, easy, yet delicious idea for upcoming dinners. My motivation is zilch – but I need something in my fridge! Heading over to that enchilada casserole now…
    I’m excited to try a pumpkin ale. I don’t think I have before but I’ve already seen a couple around. Sounds like a good combo to me.
    PS your swt potato/bread/pb snack is heaven.

  2. That looks like a delicious day of eats! The beer looks mighty good too. I see the pumpkin beers coming out… but I’m just not ready for it yet! I can’t believe it’s already September, actually.
