This is the sixth, count ’em, sixth time I’ve had What I Ate Wednesday over here. You should know the drill by now…
My breakfast was pretty similar to last week’s. The only difference is that I ate the toast and peanut butter separate from the banana. This is obviously one of my go-to’s (since you see it on here almost every Wednesday) but it’s just sooo easy and good I can’t feel bad about it.
Well, if you remember correctly, my dinner last week was a hodge podge of different recipes I had been working on. My lunch this week ended up just being a portion of the pretzel crusted pork chop (which I SWEAR once I get my act together I will post) and sauteed zucchini, carrots, red onion, with garlic. It was super yummy. And I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not but my pork chop seems like a small portion because I’m trying to eat more veggies instead of meats/breads. (Someone please take note that my lunch is practically completely carb free!)
My afternoon consisted of me munching on cucumbers that I soaked in vinegar with salt and pepper. My dad used to do this all the time and I LOVED it. Apparently its not that easy to recreate his recipe because something was off. I’m gonna have to ask him what the secret is. I also tried one of the Luna S’mores bars and it was DELISH. I think we might have a new contender for my favorite!
Dinner this week was a BLT… without the T. I tried to make my perfect BLT but apparently I can’t follow my own directions and something went wrong… so the bacon didn’t stay in the basket weave. HOWEVER, I solemly swear I will make as many BLTs as necessary until I figure out what went wrong (as if that’s a chore), and then I’ll update the recipe! Also, don’t judge on the lack of tomato, I PILED up the lettuce to make up for my omission of that ingredient.
Laura and I found these Redd’s Apple Ales at Target and obviously had to try them. She wasn’t a fan of them but I was kind of fond of them… have you tried them? What did you think?! Then because Jessica posted about these summer shandy floats I decided we needed to make our own. I still had some leftover lemon sorbet from when my mom was here, so I opted to use that. NOM. They were sooooooo good!
Well guys, that’s it for What I Ate Wednesday! I hope you all have a fun AND SAFE Fourth of July. I’m starting my Holiday weekend out right by going to a Sounders game with Laura tonight! You should probably start YOUR weekend by clicking on over to Jenn‘s page to catch up on other What I Ate Wednesdays… and read her proposal story (SO CUTE)!
