Happy WIAW readers! Thanks again to Jenn for hosting the weekly link-up! I hope you are all gearing up for the big day around here! I will be sure to do a Thanksgiving Meal Post to share all the great recipes I have been cooking up this week for the big day! Until then here are my eats before the big holiday!
Remember the chocolate-banana-peanut butter overnight oats? Well I did the exact same thing except I made a smoothie! YUM-O!!
I topped them with the chocolate quinoa granola that my friend gave me, which was delicious, however after I ate it I realized there was dried blueberries (allergic) in them, aka a little numb lip action going on. So I can’t enjoy that anymore…. 😦
Two Eggy Banana Raisin Peanut butter Oatmeal
Post Long Run with the Crew brunch at Hoboken Bar and Grill:
Broccoli, Spinach, and Mozz Omelet with Sweet Potato Fries
Pumpkin Coffee- must eat/drink all the pumpkin things before the season ends!
Kale/Raisin Salad, Carrots, a sweet potato with PB, and tuna mixed with hummus on the side- yes, random. 🙂
A taste of my Dad’s pumpkin soup:
At my friend’s 30th birthday party: slider, spin dip & tortilla chips, and veggies (went two rounds on this plate 🙂 )
One of my student’s parents purchased a Panera lunch for all his teachers!! It was so kind of them! I got the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad and it came with a multi-grain roll and a delicious giant chocolate chip cookie!
Went out to dinner with my family for Sunday Night Dinner and I went for the “Early Bird Special” haha I’m such a grandma- but it’s a good deal, salad, entrée & dessert for $18!
Entrée- Penne with Grilled Chicken, Spinach, and a Vodka Sauce:
(see dessert under desserts)
Since I am spending Thanksgiving week at my parent’s house I offered to do some meal prep to make everyone’s lives easier!
Here is the whole haul:
Baked Chicken with Celery & Carrots, with TJs Brown Rice Medley and Roasted Veggies on the side:
Italian Chicken Sausage, Peppers, Potatoes, and Onions:
Vanilla Maple Arctic Zero, Frozen Strawberries, Almond Butter and some Kashi Go Lean Crunch:
Now that it’s getting cold, my desire for ice cream tends to dwindle more (so sad), so I decided to buy some rice cakes for a different snack:
Honeydew and two rice cakes with peanut butter and chocolate chips on top- delicious!!
At my parent’s house they keep Cookie Butter in the pantry…. SCORE!
Cake from the 30th Birthday (I had a total moment with this cake), I’m not a huge cake person because it’s always so sweet but the cake from this place is never too sweet just perfect:
Oreo and chocolate fudge cake- literally had a moment. So. Good.
Tiramisu- from my early bird special meal, mmmm sooo good:
I hope you all enjoyed your week of eats. Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating! I can’t wait to share all of my Thanksgiving Goodness with you soon too!
Until then, I hope you all have a happy, healthy and delicious Thanksgiving with your families and loved ones!
