Happy WIAW my sweet little orange cherry oatmeal muffins.
I can’t believe I am officially back for a full WIAW post, and I don’t have anything to say.
I know, it’s baffling to even me. I usually can’t shut up, and now my mind is blank. Maybe you can only talk about one day of food so many times, or maybe I just need a better thesaurus. Or a nap. Or something.
In any event, I took photos of my eats on Monday, so that’s the day I’m going to share with all of you. I’m also really craving Kirsten’s delicious Orange Cherry Oatmeal Muffins, so there you have it. My mind is either blank or filled with dancing muffins. I’m not sure why they’re dancing, but they are, and they are wearing skirts as well; some with polka dots.
Sorry, I digress; I blame my brain; she’s been doing weird things lately (nothing to be alarmed about friends and family). I hear this happens with age.
In any event, let’s give a rousing round of applause to Ms. Jenn over at Peas and Crayons, for hosting our weekly Wednesday fun. Even though she has been down and out, she is just as funny as ever. She talked about marinating her balls yesterday, and I really got a kick out of that. Plus they were smothered in pesto, so that’s another winner. “Pesto balls: I’ll take two please.”
Onto the food (not that those balls weren’t about food). I started Monday morning with some coffee and toasted granola bread smothered in a lovely layer of butter. To be clear, my coffee wasn’t Starbucks. It was either that or a Christmas mug, so Starbucks won….this round.
I also scarfed down my typical banana because no day would be complete without one, and this is my classy banana pose because the two go hand in hand, obviously. Nothing says class like a hoodie or makes me want to sing LL Cool J’s Mama’s Said Knock You Out more. Great, now the cherry orange oatmeal muffins are dancing to hip hop.
Lunch was some sweet potato soup from my grocery store, Nature’s Bin. Yes, I know I made a bazillion soups last week and yet I’m eating a store-bought one come Monday. Oh, the horror. Alright, a bazillion might be a slight exaggerating, I really only made four, but now that my soup stash is fully replenished, I’m not ready to start depleting the reserves.
I also had a spinach salad with a handful of freshly sliced strawberries and a sprinkling of blue cheese, all dressed with a little olive oil and peach balsamic vinegar. The dressing came post photo shoot.
For a snack, I ate some Rosemary Parmesan Drop biscuits I made over the weekend. I proceeded to slather these in butter as well. For me, bread and butter (the real deal) just goes together like Bert and Ernie, Fred and Ginger, and me and some orange cherry oatmeal muffins. If you want to make these Drop Biscuits, stick with the original recipe and then add a quarter cup of Parmesan and some fresh rosemary (one snippet works wonders, in the muffins and on your plate for a little artistic touch).
Here, let’s get another look at that ooey gooey good, yolk porn because visual stimulation (and cherry orange oatmeal muffins) is where it’s at today.
Since I don’t want my fruit bowl getting jealous, let’s share another one of those too. Bam, another banana, this time right in the kisser….just how I like ’em.
There you have it; an entire day of food. Hopefully you’ll excuse me while I go make some orange cherry oatmeal muffins. I seem to have them stuck in my brain, and now they are doing the can-can with their cute little muffin type legs. Damn them.
Tell me about a day of your food? Have you been craving anything interesting lately? Have you tried these orange cherry oatmeal muffins? You really should.
