Hello and happy Wednesday!
Of course, thanks to Jenn for keeping this link up going!
So, I didn’t get any awesome Thanksgiving meals this last weekend – that’s coming up later this week. So, I just have a holiday Monday day of eats for you And as I said in last week’s WIAW, this isn’t representative of absolutely everything that went into my mouth on Monday, so there’s no use in comparing!
Pumpkin oats with wildberry jam, Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut butter and a fried egg/egg whites. I’m almost out of the chocolate hazelnut, and that makes me sad.
The perfect holiday workout:
Salad beast! A mix of spinach and romaine with squash (red kabocha and pepper), carrots, bell peppers, and leftover pulled pork. I used the roasted garlic yogurt dressing I picked up on Saturday and I really liked it – it tasted a lot like Caesar to me.
After lunch, we went out to visit my parents – the reason why we’re delaying Thanksgiving was because my parents were actually on a Mediterranean cruise for twelve days. Italy, Turkey, Croatia, Greece. Yes, I am jealous.
But they did bring me back pretty earrings!
And a Turkish teapot and black squid ink pasta. If they’re going to go without me, at least they brought me back stuff And fun fact: my mom always picks out jewellery for me when she travels. Pretty sure that half of my jewellery has been bought in other countries!
Annd they brought back Turkish Delight, which of course I had to try.
I’d never actually had real Turkish Delight before…it wasn’t bad, but I prefer chocolate in my dessert, I think.
And Everything Pretzel Thins. The best flavour.
Scallop, crab, and veggie stirfry on brown rice. Stirfries are basically Eric’s favourite meal, so I tend to make them about once a week or so. And because I’m lazy, I just buy a bag of frozen stirfry veggies and I’m good to go. So convenient.
Dessert/Late Night Snack
Cottage cheese with casein, Justin’s Maple Almond, and pretzel pieces. Apparently, I am all about the pretzels right now?
So, a holiday day that wasn’t all that different from regular days of eating. Still delicious, but I’m looking forward to my family Thanksgiving this coming Saturday
Have a good one!
<— Any suggestions on what I should prepare with the squid ink pasta? I was thinking mussels and red sauce would be tasty.
<— Do you work out on holidays?
<— Should pretzels be plain, or do you like flavoured ones? Of course, chocolate-covered are the best way to go.
<— Chocolate or fruity desserts?
