A very green WIAW…

Howdy folks, thanks you for joining me for our second installment of What I ate Wednesday!

Our color of the day is . .

. . . *drumroll* . . .

GREEN !

 
Chilled Cucumber Dill Soup: 
Courtesy of Rachel’s Craperie in Downtown Lancaster. My mother and I split a cup of this delightfully green soup in addition to our own crepes:
Santa Fe Veggie Crepe: 

(also from Rachel’s) 


Tomatoes, onions , corn, black beans, cheddar cheese, greens, and a vegetarian BBQ sauce. Delicious but HUGE, I brought leftovers home 😄
Dill Avocado Spread:My own green creation (shown here on a rice cake). It just takes three ingredients folks:
 
One avocado
One bunch of dill
One squeeze of lemon juice
(I actually added too much lemon and had to double the batch to even it out)Put it in a food processor (or a mini food processor):and blend those beautiful greens!

I actually like this better smooshed with a fork rather than blended I think…

 

~What’s your favorite green food?

 

Happy WIAW everyone!

(my first) WIAW!

Yes, it’s true. I’ve decided to join the WIAW party!
 

 
What I ate Wednesday is an effort to link together a bunch of bloggers to basically share what the ate and everything they ate on a given day of the week. I think, for me, this will be a great opportunity to look back on a day and see and bad habits coming out or good habits that I should be proud I’ve developed. Of course this may just result in me being extra careful not to have any guilty eats on the day I’m photographing but you know what, that’s healthy too! Click here for more details about WIAW.

What I did not realize is that you can photograph a day of meals, snacks, drink etc. from  ANY day of the week. So, this week at least this is actually what I ate Wednesday! (as in today) In the future I will probably photograph Monday, or Tuesday’s eats, or maybe not and I’ll stick to actual Wednesday meals. It will all depend on my class schedule.
 

So, here goes!

(I’ve included everything but a water count)

 
Breakfast:
 

 
Homemade polenta topped with amazingly red tomatoes (brought with me from our garden) and avocado. Seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper. (for meat eaters my brother told me his was delicious with fresh local shrimp on top as well)
 
Not pictured: two cups of coffee from my favorite coffee cup
 
Snacks:
 
Not pictured: one brown rice cake in the early afternoon
 
Dinner:
 

The pasta pictured is actually my brothers, which in addition to the veggies included fresh, local shrimp and scallops.

Pasta with spinach, zucchini* and roasted acorn squash* topped with a bit of shredded cheese.
 

I have this secret soft sopt for all things acorn

*from my own garden!
 
Indulgence:
 

BEFORE

Baked peanut butter, nutella bananas. Basically slice open a banana down the middle, spread in a small dollop each of nutella and peanut butter (any nut butter will do, but I was afraid my current almond butter would be too runny) But really, only a SMALL dollop or all of the goodness will leak out. Place in the oven at 400*F and bake for ~10 min or until the outsides are black like this:
 

AFTER!

Eat out of the peel with a spoon right after taking out of the oven. Just use some common sense, don’t burn yourself.
 
I only ate one of these but thank goodness my brother (who’s in that stage where he eats a full meal every two hours or so) was here or I would have eaten another, they were sooo good.
 
 
 
So there we are, my very first WIAW!!!
