What I Ate Wednesday #47 [Here + There Edition]

Has anyone seen my memory?  I can't find it!  I've taken photos of nearly everything I've been eating lately but b/c they're all mixed up on two different cameras and my phone... I don't know which is which to save my life.  I can't recall one full day of eats so.... Let's Franken-WIAW this!  I'm "stitching" together highlights from the last week or so to share this Wed.  A few of you already do week-long recaps so count me in too!

WIA... Here and There.
[Clockwise from top left] Love Grown Raisin Almond Granola w/ Plain Greek Yogurt.  Dunkin Donuts' Egg White Veggie Flatbread.  Snowflake Bark [recipe].  Ginger Salad.  KC + Dragon Roll Sushi.  Spring Mix + Veggie Salad w/ Ranch.  Microwavable Box-o-Edamame.  Grocery Store Hawaiian Roll.  LG Granola + Greek w/ Yogi Kombucha Green Tea.  [End of Highlight Reel <3]

and while I'm working on my food recall skills, let me just tell you how utterly amazing my dinner was last night! =)  Thanks to my favorite jarred sauce of all time.  I could drink this stuff!  Dave's Gourmet Red Heirloom Tomato Sauce reminds me of a marghaerita pizza [esp if you sprinkle a teeny bit of parm on top!] and is, in my opinion, well worth the hefty price tag.  I stock up on it at TJ Maxx and Marshalls since its 4.99 instead of the typical $8 grocery store price.  Whole Foods and Harris Teeter carry it too.  I just think it beats the pants off anything else out there and had to share the love =)


 and because I didn't actually eat the jar of sauce for dinner...


Roasted Spaghetti Squash with Mashed Cauliflower + Cheesy Ravioli + Garlicky Mushrooms w/ Dave's Gourmet Red Heirloom Sauce.  Yes I made this just for myself.  Yes I licked the plate clean.  You know you would have too! =)  SoOoOooo GOOD!


So what has you licking your plate clean lately?
I'd love to see a day in the life of you! Meals, snacks, drinks - anything you'd like to share!

Pin It!

  1. I blame the holidays for my scatter-brained behavior. :)

    Those cookie cutter chocolate barks are the cutest things ever.  You can adapt that for any occasion too!

  5. Mmmm...gourmeting it up for one! I love it! Who says you can't bust out all the stops just to impress yourself every once in a while? Especially when you get a little help from the store! ;) I've seen that sauce at the Maxx before...I'll have to check it out! Have you ever tried Chef Ricardo's line of sauces?  http://chefricardo.foodoro.com/products/tomato-sauce-mix--match-3-pack-26-oz-ea Their Mucho Macho rocks my world! 

    Love the Franken-WIAW...Is it weird that I'm pronouncing that Franken-Wraaaaaa? Haha!

  9. Rookie. Apparently my "name" is the pic title? Sweet. Haha. I know for next time.

    Bragged about you in my post, Jenn! ;) I'll have you know I stayed up to post. I was juuuuust turning off blogger when I saw your link-up pop on to the screen. I'll pay for this in the morning, but it was a good excuse to edit more pics that were calling my name. I'm so glad you do these. How fun!

    AH! I love Marshalls and TJ Maxx for cheap foodie things! And I won't lie, I could have eaten the entire jar of pasta sauce on its own. I love spaghetti sauce with things in.

  13. Hey Jenn, I didn't realize TJ Maxx sold food.  I was only in there for the first time last week.  Guess I missed the foodie goodness.  Gotta go back!  Happy WIAW!
