And we’re back to What I Ate Wednesday! I’m really loving this post – I look forward to putting it together each week, and it encourages me to get myself out of the slump of the ‘picking at Ryan’s breakfast, lunch salad, grilled chicken dinner’ rotation that I find myself in a lot. I also love throwing Ryan’s eat in here – I like being able to look back at what he ate and what he was digging at the time.
So without further ado, here are our Monday eats!
Monday was super rainy, so upon waking up, I knew we would not be leaving the house, making it a designated PJ day. That was fine by me though, since Ryan’s party was the day before and we had my favorite -LEFTOVERS.
Breakfast: We bought a bunch of strawberries (we had Ina’s Strawberry Country Cake for the grown ups – it was pretty good, very much like shortcake) and cut up a bunch of watermelon for the party, so we went with that for breakfast. Strawberries, watermelon and bananas and an apricot Chobani for me, and eggs, watermelon, strawberries, banana, carrots, pancake and sweet potatoes for the boy. Both plates were gobbled up super quick. Love summer fruit!!
Lunch: Leftover pesto pasta salad (recipe coming!) and a heated up leftover chicken kabob. Eggs, seasoned chicken and onions, bell pepper, carrots, tomato and black olives for Ryan, and some unpictured watermelon for both of us after.
Snack: I got hungry during Ryan’s nap, so a few pieces of parmesan cheese and some strawberries were in order. Who needs plates, btw?
Dinner: Ryan essentially had the same as lunch while I had a chicken breast with a bit of ricotta, sliced tomatoes, grated parm, and basil from our potted plant with more pasta salad and corn.
Dessert: I am not allowed to have anything tasty in my house. We had leftover heavy cream in the fridge and I couldn’t resist the temptation to throw a couple of tablespoons in my Magic Bullet with some cocoa powder and sugar for some chocolate whipped cream. My brother and I ate this all the time as kids and with some sliced strawberries it was as decadent as I remembered!
So that’s our Monday in eats! I’m linking up with Peas and Crayons for WIAW.
Do you love leftovers as much as I do? Does anyone else stay in their PJ’s all day when it’s gross out? Let me know in the comments!
