Catchy title, ain’t it?

WIAWbutton

I wish I had the time to think of something more creative but hey, it’s Wednesday, and it’s time to share some recent eats, so I it will suffice as I rush off to work for the afternoon.

Breakfast

After a quick 45 minute run, I came home and scarfed down the first thing I could find. I was so happy to have these puppies already in the fridge and waiting to go. 30 seconds in the microwave and I had breakfast!

Unpictured was, of course, two cups of coffee. That goes without saying…

Lunch

Caprese salad: sliced mozzarella and tomatoes on top of arugula. Dressing was olive oil + TJ's balsamic glaze

I think I single-handedly keep our local TJ’s in business. Their balsamic glaze is killer! I could drink the stuff.

On the side I enjoyed some awesome blueberries – it’s times like these that I remember it’s summer! Things like fruit and corn haven’t been so great this year but this batch was sweet and delicious, so I’m thankful for that.

 Dinner

I went to see one of my oldest and best friends, Kaitlin, while she was in town. Kait lives in my neighborhood so ever since I was in seventh grade I’ve always walked or scootered (moreso in my preteen years haha) to her house. She’s only back for a few days before heading back to Mississippi to teach so it was so nice to spend time with her and her family! They prepared an awesome dinner on the grill.

Grilled chicken, roasted asparagus with parmesan and balsamic vinegar, and half of a baked potato. Pinot Grigio on the side.

Dessert

Since it was Kait’s Mom’s birthday, we celebrated with pie. Cherry pie a la mode from Door County, to be exact, so it was an epic dessert.

IMG_8425It was such a nice night spent with her family. We even took a walk around the neighborhood like old times – friends like that are so special! I could go a year without seeing her and then the minute we’re together it’s like no time has passed. Love that girl!

Plus, full disclosure: I ate some chips and salsa before bed that I wasn’t even hungry for. That late night snacking will be the death of me!

Questions:

  • What was the best thing you ate yesterday?
  • What’s your favorite type of wine?
  • Do you have a friend who you can go without seeing for awhile and then when you do it’s like no time has passed?

  1. Pie + Wine + Ice Cream. YES.
    Hormel Pork tenderloin and sweet potato for dinner last night was delicious, but I enjoyed the salad that Alex made me for lunch just as much 😀
