Happy Wednesday. Hope you’re enjoying a great week. I’m scrambling to get my act together before a trip, but I wanted to pop in and join the weekly  What I Ate Wednesday party. Last week I shared some desk meals, so how about this week we look at some weekend stuff?

I did work a lot of the weekend, but I still got to enjoy some delicious meals.

Breakfast: Saturday morning involved a gorgeous egg white scramble made with leftover veggies (including roasted baby eggplant). veggie egg white scramble

My “treat” for starting my hospital  shift at 7:15 Sunday morning was a delicious crappy deli iced coffee with milk and splenda. Not even remotely good for me, but total comfort drink. Weird, I know. iced coffee at work

I followed it up with some pumpkin egg white oats (like this but without cranberries), to which I added peanut butter.

Lunch: I totally forgot to take photos of lunch because I wasn’t thinking in WIAW mode, but both days involved salads eaten in a hurry between tasks. Sunday’s looking kind of like this, but no egg because I was out. desk lunch miss en place

Snacks: It’s a weird day if Greek yogurt doesn’t find its way in somehow. I’ve been digging the 2% plain lately with cinnamon and either flax or chia, maybe a little honey or fruit if I have some. yogurt chia honey desk snack

Dinner: Saturday night I went to a 30th birthday dinner but didn’t take any food photos. Sunday night I met my parents at a place we’d never been before, Tessa, where my mom and I shared this gorgeous saladTessa Summer Salad

and both ordered the octopus appetizer for dinner. Any day I get to eat octopus is a good day. Tessa octopus

It wasn’t a big dessert weekend, but at Saturday night’s dinner, the restaurant gave us mochi with the check. The one I got was blueberry-flavored and had blueberry-flavored ice cream inside. The birthday girl said they looked like “weird condoms.”


Hm. I’d never really thought of that before, but now I will never be able to look at mochi the same. I’ll probably still be able to eat them, though, because, well, priorities.

Happy Wednesday! What’s the best (food thing) you’ve eaten recently?
