WIAW: Quick Meals in Disguise

WIAW... it's been a long time since my last "What I Ate Weduesday" post!  See my previous WIAW posts here, and check out other folks' WIAW over at Peas & Crayons.

Yesterday's meals were all simple, although they'd look like they took quite a bit of time.

I was so tired that I slept through/snoozed my first alarm--very rare!  Got myself up eventually, showered, got dressed, and made eggs. The eggs caused a rude awakening, because the smoke from the frying pan--after I was done cooking, set off the alarm.  That shook me to consciousness.

Thus, breakfast was simple: eggs over lox. Lox, courtesy of my grandmother, who brought them for me when we celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday. She knows I love them but don't buy them often.  Thank you, Grandma!

Lunch was Turnip Noodles with Toasted Walnut Pesto.  Sounds fancy, right?  It's actually a "7-minute meal" by Hungry Root.  They have a variety of vegetable-noodle dishes that are pre-portioned and come with clear instructions to cook in no time at all.  I just began trying it out, and will write a full review post when I've tried all four varieties that I ordered.

This one was good enough. I liked it better than the first. The Turnip flavor didn't entirely do it for me, but the pesto sauce was able to help cover that up.  It also tasted much better fresh off the stove, I think, than it did when I had to heat it up the next day for lunch at work.

I did toss in that bit of avocado, for good measure :)

I stayed at work late yesterday, not leaving until close to six (late for a teacher whose school officially ends at 2:41).  Got back home and tossed some laundry in the machine.  Then, I walked on the treadmill during the first wash, listening to the StartUp podcast, which I highly recommend! (Read about other podcasts here.)

Exciting night, right?  Moved the laundry, took a shower, and settled down to eat dinner, also leftovers.

So yesterday's meals... really, none of them I can take full credit for, but I enjoyed them all! 

What did you eat Weduesday?


  1. I think you should take credit! You put it all together. :)

    Love, love, love lox! I must go find some now.

    1. Lol yep! Assembly is half the battle :)

  2. Lox is the best! There's nothing wrong with heat and serve meals!

    1. Agreed :) Thanks for stopping by!
