What I Ate Wednesday

This week is really flying by for me.  I can’t believe it is already Wednesday! Only 2 more days of work until some really nice weekend weather.

As I’ve started to record what I eat, when you know you’re posting pictures of what you ate for all of the interwebs to see, it makes you want to make better choices.  If that is going to help me eat a bit healthier, I’m going with it!  Without further ado, my eats for today.

Breakfast: blueberry oat cake and coffee with milk and sugar

I baked the cake last night with the blueberries that were starting to go soft.  Mine totally looks the same as the Martha Stewart Living recipe right?

Blueberry Oat Cake

Lunch: grilled buffalo chicken sandwich on wheat from Potbelly.  Toppings included hot sauce, lettuce, tomato and blue cheese.  Enjoyed with a side of watermelon and seltzer.

Weekly Meal Plan

Normally I make the meal plan and we grocery shop over the weekend, but with the long weekend everything got shifted a bit.  I typically try and make a plan that incorporates the sales for that week and if I’m using only a small portion of a something, I try and make something later in the week that would use the rest of it.

We’re trying 2 new recipes this week!  Zucchini Boats we’ve had before, but summer squashes and italian sausage were on sale this week so it seemed like the perfect thing. Other things on sale included cherry tomatoes, fresh corn, frozen shrimp, red peppers and avocado.

On the menu for us

Tuesday: Grilled Salmon and Yellow Squash with Red Pepper Sauce

Wednesday: Out for sushi for a friend’s last day of her old job

Thursday: Spicy Grilled Shrimp with Quinoa Salad

Friday: Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Saturday: Spicy Black Bean Burgers and Corn

The black bean burgers are a new to me item that my sister recommended.  I figure we’ll have some leftover tomatoes and avocado to create a fresh salsa of sorts to top them with.
