What I Ate Wednesday

Posted on November 9, 2011


Wow, this week has flown by.  My husband traveled some last week which meant my Mom hopped on an airplane ASAP to come help out play!  I also got to get together with a good friend and running buddy for what I thought would be the last time before she moves out-of-state.  However, she posted on Facebook the other day that she wished she had time, between packing, to make this Pumpkin Cheesecake with Pecan Crunch Topping from the PPK:

…to which I promptly commented that I would make and bring to her so we (and the kids) can have one last soiree.  That’s a win-win, wouldn’t you say?  I’ll post a review after I indulge in my own next week!

Another big event for me this week is I finally started dance classes again!  I am super stoked to be back.  In fact, I am so zealous, that I have committed to back-to-back classes = 2 hours in the dance studio.   Which brings me to today when my body told me I had to get back to yoga, too.  Now, to get back on the road.

Although, I did forget to post a pic of the 5K that W (his first!) and I ran the weekend before last.

Between 5K’s, dancing my tushie off way more than I have been accustomed to since M was born and Daylight Savings Time, I think I should put myself to bed early the rest of this week to catch up on my ZZzzzz’s!

So enough about my fun week and on to the eats.  Be sure to check out the WIAW party over at Peas and Crayons for tons of inspiring eats!


Whole Wheat Grain Squares with Almond Milk, Strawberry O’Soy Yogurt and the new flavor of Good Belly.  (Yes, I was feeling the need of a good digestive boost this morning for some reason…thus the yogurt and probiotic drink).

AM Snack:


The Best Vegetarian Chili in the World (I promise, I am not being haughty.  I found this recipe a few years ago on All Recipes and it is still my go-to chili recipe with a few tweaks here and there).  Paired with a side of steamed California Veggies.

PM Snack:

Graham Crackers with Raw Almond Butter in the car between K’s ballet class and both the big kids’ basketball practices.


Bean Chimichanga, rice and yes, more beans.  🙂  Since the afternoon was so hectic, we ate dinner out at one of the kids’ favorite Mexican restaurants.  They piled so much on my plate, that I have a whole other chimi chilling in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch!

Who else is still trying to adjust to this time change?

How do you keep in touch with good friends who live far away?
