Woo hoo! It’s Wednesday.
And what a busy week it has been!
High school soccer starts Monday, and from tonight through Sunday I’m taking a Youth Coaching License class. Fun stuff! Although it should be fun, because I get to play soccer and learn more about the sport.
So a quick WIAW post and then I’ll likely be out of commission for oohhh…maybe a good week or so! After two-a-days next week perhaps I’ll find a little more time (until school starts that is!). August – October is the Andy-and-Katie-don’t-see-each-other much part of our year. Except for the late night “hello” and then “goodnight”, and then some on the weekends (around his Friday night games, my Saturday games, and Vikings football on Sunday). Is it bad that I consider Friday night football games a date? I mean I do get to see him, from across the field.
In all seriousness, I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s a short time that flies by, and it’s much better to be in it together anyhow. And not to mention, I’m totally geeked for the season to start!
Settling into the new house has been fun, as I’ve been actually able to use the kitchen again (hooray!). I also made my first trip to Costco (no judging quite yet!). Although I’m a huge proponent of local businesses, and especially local food, I couldn’t help but love the place. I was able to stock up on all sorts of all-natural and organic snacks and produce. They even have organic meat! Long story short, I joined, and am looking forward to the next trip (after I eat like 2 pounds of hummus!).
So what did I eat this week? Read on!
WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) 11
A little snack platter for when my friends came to check the new house on Sunday. I am loving that we can finally have people over now!
Organic cheddar cheese, rice crackers, green bell peppers, carrots, and hummus.
And then just some broccoli and hummus for myself.
Add in some carrots and you’ve got my afternoon snack the past two days.
My juicer is back in action from being packed away, so I made this lovely green juice for breakfast yesterday.
Celery, kale, carrots, and black grapes.
The fiancé and I are back cooking. We made homemade pesto with baked chicken (no grill yet!), with tomato, corn-on-the-cob, and green beans all from the Farmer’s Market. It was our first dinner in the new place!
The night after we made our take on shrimp and grits. Creamy polenta with sautéed shrimp, asparagus, and mushrooms. The polenta was not my favorite (perhaps too rich?) and I probably won’t be making it again for awhile (if ever!).
I’ve been at home for lunch so far this week, so it’s consisted mostly of veggies and hummus, beef jerky, string cheese, some pistachios (my favorite!) and almonds. I love snacks and could eat them for every meal I’m pretty sure! Breakfast has basically been bananas and KIND bars (except the green juice day!). I need to get back into my smoothie making here soon!
And don’t be fooled, it’s not all healthy. The fiance’s mom sent us with these to.die.for carmel chocolate nut bar thingies. I don’t even know what they are, but I do know they are damn good! Remember when I gave up sugar for 10 days? I might have to do that again after I polish off the batch of these babies sitting in our freezer. Every day I need one. Need. Yep, I’m addicted.
Alright folks, anything good you’ve been eating these days?! New dinner ideas or snacks to share? I’m all ears!
Until next time, happy clean eating!
