As always, thanks to Jen at Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday.
Breakfast was my usual, consisting of Oatmeal Crisp cereal, vanilla yogurt, and an orange for my fruit. I’ve been having a couple oranges a day lately cause they’re just so good at this time of year. They also remind me of California. My grandma who lived in Sacramento had one in her backyard.
For lunch I made an egg, ham, and cheese sandwich on an English muffin. For some reason I was really craving eggs. You’d think the craving would have hit me at breakfast, but apparently not. I had some carrots and (unpictured) hummus to go with it. For some reason it took me forever to get up the nerve to try hummus, but since then I’ve loved it. It might not look all that appetizing but it’s delicious.
I experimented a little with my dinner. I was checking out the pantry and the fridge to figure out what I could make cause I didn’t have a plan. I discovered some goat cheese that I’d forgotten was in the fridge, so I thought I’d use it to make a sauce for some pasta. I wanted to add some veggies to the pasta so I threw in some spinach and cherry tomatoes. The last thing I added to it once it was on my plate was some freshly ground pepper. For whipping up something that I wasn’t sure would work, it turned out really good. Once I perfect the recipe I’m going to post it on the blog so be on the lookout for it in the next couple weeks.
I’ve really been making an effort to get in more fruits and vegetables everyday. I’m happy to say that it’s been a few weeks now and I’m really happy with how I’ve been doing. Once I got into the habit of eating them more it wasn’t as tough as it was in the beginning.
What was the last craving you had? Do you ever create dishes without a recipe?
