Second Round WIAW

As I put together my weekly “day of eats” post, I realized almost everything was already mentioned on the blog – these foods were so delicious I just had to have them twice. ;)

Breakfast - 8 am, at work: Laura’s zucchini bread oats (I added too much liquid!)

Ugly but delicious and healthy!

Lunch - 12 pm, at work (recycled photos): Broccoli and cauliflower soup [original recipe here], and 2 crustless quiche cups (the second batch), and a banana with peanut butter

image

PM snack – blueberries, greek yogurt, and almond meal (new favorite thanks to Aubrey)

image

Workout – 4.6 mile run with no ankle pain!  I had to get out and enjoy the crazy 58 degree weather we had yesterday.

Dinner – 7:30 pm, at home: I was seriously craving a caprese panini but didn’t feel like going to Panera.  My husband and I went to the grocery store and bought the necessary items to make them at home instead.

We also had my favorite roasted red pepper/tomato soup on the side (the cheap Aldi version).

Dessert - More than one of these cookies [Gina's recipe here], and some of Mama Pea’s chocolate chips cookies (de-veganized) for my husband (I made them for him Monday night after he had a rough day).

I was in a hurry while baking the cookies and melted the margarine in the microwave (I know, I know…) which in turn melted the mini chocolate chips once I stirred them in.  They ended up with a pretty swirled design, but less concentrated chocolate flavor.

Do you like leftovers or prefer to eat things only once? I’m frugal (read: cheap) and don’t like to waste food (especially delicious food), so I’m fine to eat the same thing a few days in a row!

    I am like you! I could seriously make two meals a week and eat the leftovers until they’re gone. I too can’t stand wasting food, something I definitely learned while growing up. When I am not able to eat it all the meal it is put in the freezer for a quick meal for another time!
    Your sandwich looks delicious! I love melted mozzarella and fresh tomato! Yum!

    I always try to make just enough for one meal because I get bored with leftovers. :) Love the looks of your panini!

    And YAY for the run with no pain! So happy for you!!!

    I love leftovers! Because I hate wasting food!

    Sorry your oats were too runny! Hope they were still tasty. :)

    Love the idea of a homemade caprese pannini! I may have to do that tonight.

    I’m not a fan of leftovers… I really have to force myself to eat them. I prefer making things fresh!

    I loooooove leftovers, especially on salad. I love to take leftover protein or veggies from dinner and throw it on some green for lunch the next day. It mixes up the mundane salad and uses up all of that extra food too!

    that homemade panini looks better than a restaurant panini. prob. tastes better too!
    and those zucchini bread oats sound delish! I must try! :)

    Left overs are the only way I can cook at college! I would be wasting food by making something new every single night!
