WIAW #35 – Wine and Double the Candy

I can’t believe I FORGOT to do WIAW last week! How can that be? Welp – to be honest,  life/work/etc. got crazy and Wednesday came and went without a WIAW. Sadness. I know. Forgive me?

Hopefully you do – because I’m back on the WIAW bandwagon now!

Breakfast look familiar? Yup. It’s my traditional, breakfast made by B – eggs with hot peppers, spinach and other veggies. I was particular hungry this morning so I had a handful of nuts too.

I opted for an apple at my desk for a midmorning snack.

For lunch, I had some grilled chicken, leftover tomato/zucchini pie, peppers and onions and half of a sweet potato. It was SO good.

And then one of my favorite snacks – delicata squash roasted with honey and cinnamon. I’m addicted to delicata squash right now.

And then a coworker came around the office with a big bag of peanut M&Ms … of course I took some!

After work, I had plans to grab drinks with a coworker. I LOVE getting wine at our local grocery store, Heinen’s. You just put your card into the machine and boom- a glass of wine! And not a bad view. Such a pretty grocery store 🙂

B also made me dinner. I came home to some breaded chicken over stewed zucchini and tomatoes. Sorry for the poor lighting. But it was delicious.

I was craving some candy so for dessert I had a mini Take 5 and some candy corn. Candy twice in one day 🙂

And that was it! A WIAW Wednesday that was perfectly delicious. Wine and candy twice in one day? Yum!

Some questions for you:

  • Have you had delicata squash?
  • What’s your favorite Halloween candy?

WIAW #34 – An Actual Real Wednesday

I’m excited to bring you a WIAW post that is an actual REAL Wednesday of eats. I know – I typically share Mondays, or Tuesday, or even Thursdays … but here is a REAL Wednesday!

I had a breakfast meeting scheduled in the morning at one of my favorite downtown spots, Restore Cold Pressed. I go there probably too often for my wallet to like, and it was nice to introduce someone new to the juice/smoothie/acai bowl/avocado toast joint. I of course got an acai bowl with granola, almond butter and blueberries. Confession: I saved about half for breakfast another day because they’re pretty big and too good not to savor!

For lunch I was pretty excited – B had prepared some grilled chicken a few nights before for lunches, so I took that with leftover cauliflower, kabocha squash and sweet potato. Such a good meal! I love lunches like this.

For dinner, I had put some turkey chili in the crockpot and it was ready for when we got home. #Winning

I topped it with some cheese.
