Helloskis. I hope all you cheeky cats are doing well!
I took a petite break on the blogging front yesterday to buckle down and get some work done! I do a 48-page magazine for my organization every three months (like the entire thing, design, layout, most of the photography, and most of the writing), and the entire project takes me weeks. It has just been hanging over my head for the past little while and I am so glad it’s finally complete and sent to the printers. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders :) Hooray.
But I am back today for What I Ate Wednesday!
Other than work stuff, not too much has been crack-a-lackin’ with me the last few days, so you did not miss much. And I honestly ate exactly the same foods for breakfast, lunch, and mid-morning snack both today and yesterday.
Toasted whole wheat bagel topped with cream cheese and grape jelly. Yeah, maybe a weird combo, but SO GOOD! So good I ate it twice.
Beastly salad including lettuce, tomato, cucumber, shredded carrot, green onion, and my black beans and salsa mix leftover from my burritos the other night. I dressed this puppy up with a bit of Italian dressing. V filling and quite a groovy yumfest.
And, same mid-morning snack.
PC Strawberry Green yogurt mixed with fresh sliced peach and raspberry. This has actually been my go-to mid-morning snack for the past week or so.
I have snuck in a few treats as well though. When Ando arrived home from work yesterday he was all “I have a present for youuuuuu” and held up a big plastic bag.
I love presents and surprises, but in this case I’m pretty sure I just said “Meh,” all disinterested.
Andy-pants works in communications for a company that manufactures cleaning supplies and products, so usually the “presents” that he brings home from work are things like heavy duty paper towels and disinfectant spray. Please forgive me for not peeing my pantaloons in excitement.
But yesterday he had an event going on, and that is not what he brought home. This is what he brought me:
A GIANT piece of cake. THAT piqued my interest immediately (because, as you know, I like to eat). I was pumped as soon as I saw that thing.
That picture is not really doing the cake justice…
There ya go. Now THAT is a piece of cake, my friends.
I wanted to eat the entire thing, but I managed to hold back and just cut myself a “sliver”.
This cake was frickin’ delicious. The cake itself was some kind of banana, but it was the icing that took the (literal) cake! One of the best buttercream icings I have ever tasted. I was dying. And I loved that there was icing in the middle as well. I much prefer icing in the middle to lemon filling or something. I don’t want anything tangy messing up the taste of my sweet buttercream.
I kept going back to the cake throughout the evening and snacking on icing. I couldn’t stay away! I totally ruined my dinner appetite after that thing.
But here’s tonight’s delicious dinner:
Cheesy taco bake! Topped with salsa and lettuce. This is such a great alternative to tacos. I loved it.
No workouts at all yet this week as I have been trying to catch up work-wise, I have been getting up at 5am just to go into work! But for the rest of the week I am going hardcore. Here is my plan of attack:
Thursday – Boot Camp
Friday – 4+ k run
Saturday – Body Pump
Sunday – 4+ k run
Welp, I am off to watch Survivor and catch up on some blog reading. Have a great night!
- What is your favourite kind of icing?
Mine is buttercream, hands down! Love it!
