Welcome back to What I Ate Wednesday! I know I missed last week – it was actually the first Wednesday I hadn’t posted since March, which is crazy. The fact that I’ve been blogging for almost 8 months and doing WIAW for 5 is unbelievable. You know what else is hard to believe? Last Wednesday I was sitting in Day 2 of the bar exam, and now I am free 🙂 So without further ado, yesterday’s eats await…
Breakfast was a grilled chicken and Manchego omelet stuffed into a gluten free waffle-wich. I like to eat high-low, I guess (fancy cheese, frozen waffles 🙂 ). It was delicious, as was the incredibly juicy peach I paired it with. This was eaten around 10am, right after my morning run.
Lunch at 1pm was a grilled turkey and Cheddar sandwich made with Udi’s gluten free whole grain bread. My dad picked up a loaf at Costco about two weeks ago, because I needed to make my own sandwiches for lunch for the bar exam. I rarely buy gluten free bread, but this was a pleasant surprise because while the loaf crust certainly felt sturdy, the slices themselves were pretty soft and thick. Eaten fresh within the first few days, it tasted like ‘normal’ bread rather than the usually frozen gluten free varieties. And it worked well for making a pan-grilled sandwich! I paired it with cucumber slices and baby carrots, and had a yogurt with some wild raspberries to follow.
I had another yogurt around 3pm for an afternoon snack, this time with peanut butter and blueberries. I paired it with a Jazz apple and one of my No Bake Peanut Butter Berry Bars.
Dinner was a sushi-like combination of cucumber, seaweed salad, and extremely fresh ahi tuna. Usually my dad will throw this on the grill, but he picked up some tuna that was so fresh it was perfect to eat sashimi-style. We made sticky rice in the rice cooker to pair it with, which is unpictured because I ate it in a bowl on the side and forgot to snap a photo before we were seated at the table (I’ve mentioned before, I have to be stealthy about food photos around my family!) Anyway, while I think lightly seared tuna is my favorite, this was definitely a winning meal.
I had a bowl of watermelon afterwards to cleanse my palate. I often have fruit between dinner and dessert (typically ice cream, no matter the season) because I like to end my evening meal with something refreshing, but tend to wait an hour or so before diving in to dessert!
For dessert, a bountiful cup of my beloved Moose Tracks. I just can’t get enough. That makes having a gallon in the freezer a little dangerous, but so be it.
What are your favorite eats lately?
Do you eat fish sashimi- or sushi-style dining out or at home?
