Well Kids, it’s another What I Ate Wednesday, thanks to Peas and Crayons! As it turns out. I was quite the hungry monster! Like, two bowls of pasta hungry. Like nibbling on butternut squash while watching “Teen Mom 2” and swearing at the television, hungry.
Seriously, who SNACKS on butternut squash? Hmmm. I guess me. What 20 something year old woman watches “Teen Mom 2” ??? WHY? WHY? Criminetly. Can I please put a force field against stupid around my kids? Does that exist? Is it like the boy in the plastic bubble? Only more awesome? I hope it has sequins. My kids like sparkly things.
Ok, back to WIAW, For breakfast, I had my old standby of old fashioned oats with cinnamon and flax.
Lunch was a giant salad with bacon, lettuce, tomato, and goat cheese. The dressing can be found here. You see that pretty salad bowl? Yeah, my salad needed tossed. (do with THAT what you will) So I ended up eating it out of this bowl.
My afternoon snack was sooooo good. Hotel Du Chocolat chili chocolate truffles. Holy fat batman, it was wonderful.
DINNER! Oh, dinner. How I loved thee. It was more satisfying than saying “I told you so” to a Herman Cain supporter. (ok ok, maybe not THAT good.)
