What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) 7

Well hey there! And happy Wednesday!

This week sure is cruising, isn’t it?! On Monday I wrote about how excited we were that the offer we put on our house got accepted.

Well today’s post is going to be extra short and sweet as we have our inspection later this afternoon! (And I have to go unpack my classroom before summer school starts next week – bother).

So let’s get right into it!

What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) 7

Monday afternoon after I blogged, I whipped up some lunch at home. I love being home during the lunch hour. It’s so great to be able to actually cook lunch, instead of having to always pack a lunch like I do during the school year.

So to take full advantage of that, I made gluten-free fusilli noodles with sun-dried tomato pesto and spinach. I used some of the leftover olive oil (that was marinating the mozzarella balls from the caprese salad the night before) to sauté the spinach in. The pesto was store-bought (but still all-natural and fresh!). Top with some grated parmesan and now that’s what I call lunch!

 Bon appétit!

Monday night I met some college friends for dinner at a place called Pier 500 in Hudson, WI. It’s about a 45 minute drive from where I live, but one of my best friends from college lives in Hudson and we hadn’t been that way for awhile.

It’s right along the river, and that night the MN Orchestra was having a concert in the park right across from the restaurant! We sat out on the deck and it was an absolutely perfect night for some good wine, good food, and great ambiance (river views and free music? yes please!). The company wasn’t half bad either. :)

We started with an order of Brie cheese curds with lingonberry dipping sauce. Hello yum! I don’t even like Brie cheese that much, but these were amazing. The lingonberry sauce really complimented the richness of the cheese.

Then I ordered this crab salad that was one of the specials for the night. It had lump crab, avocado, cucumbers, onion, egg, baby tomatoes, kalamata olives, and Russian dressing. I love that everything was separated and I got to mix it up myself!

 A perfect summer salad.

Last night I was able to whip up a batch of guacamole for the homemade tortilla chips I made earlier this week. I just realized I don’t have a recipe for guacamole on my blog. How is that even possible?! Well, I’ll be sure to add one here soon. Mine consists of avocados, fresh garlic, jalapeño, juice from a lime, green onion, and cilantro. It’s what I had for dinner last night (along with salsa and some good aged cheddar cheese on top) before running off to teach yoga.

So fresh. So healthy. So delicious! 

 And that’s a short recap of what I’ve been enjoying this week!

I’ve been pretty scarce on breakfast since school is out and I’m eating later, but usually I’m enjoying a KIND bar and some fruit. I’ll have to get back to the smoothie making here sometime soon!

Alright folks, that’s all I’ve got for you. It’s time for a quick ab-workout (I can’t put any pressure on my feet as I sprained a toe and an ankle this past Sunday – don’t ask me how, it’s a long story!), a shower, and then a un-packing and inspection filled day! Wish us luck!

And have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday. :)

Oh, and feel free to drop me a line about what you’ve been eating this week or any other comments you’d like to share. I love hearing from you!

Until next time,

Kate
