What I Ate Wednesday appeals to the voyeur in me for more than just perverse reasons.
For real, I get a big ol’ kick out of these posts.
Not literally of course, because masochism isn’t my thing. Although if it tickles your fancy, I say rock on with your bad self. When it comes to bedroom shenanigans, anything goes. The same can be said for our WIAW parties, so long as a full day of edibles makes an appearance.
From foreplay to food. Now that’s a smooth transition. Bow chick-a-wow-wow.
I am utterly fascinated by the bits, the bobs, the bites, and the bowls of food people consume in a single day, which is one of the many reasons I love Jenn’s WIAW party. It’s also why she asked me to host again. She likes to indulge my food stalking ways, triggering a litany of burning questions* which run through my mind faster than the time it takes to wipe the drool from my chin.
*The author is taking creative liberties and being a bit dramatic. No questions were harmed in the making of this post.
Do they cook every meal from scratch?
Where are they getting all these sweet potatoes?
Should I be dumping oatmeal in nearly empty nut butter jars?
How did they get those baked fries so crispy and golden?
What’s the secret in the sauce?
Are snack plates acceptable meals? (I think so).
Do they sometimes eat cereal for dinner too? (Guilty as charged)
How did they get their avocado to do that?
Where’s all the cheese?
As a result of my own inquisitive ways, I thought it’d be fun to share a different kind of day with you, one where I spent the majority of my time in a car. Therefore, I give you the Sunday before last when I drove three hours to mother’s house for dinner and proceeded to drive three hours back home. If you lure me with food, I will come.
First Breakfast: a giant glass of water, then coffee, at least two cups, always with a little almond milk and raw sugar, followed by a three-mile run.
Second Breakfast: a fruit filled smoothie with a dollop of Greek yogurt, a generous scoop of flax powder and a nip of bee pollen.
Third Breakfast (er, I mean Lunch): a two scrambled egg and jalapeno cheese sandwich on an English Muffin.
Dinner (at my mom’s): We had potatoes and roasted root vegetables, asparagus with cheese sauce, homemade bread with pesto and a side salad covered in gorgonzola and avocado. There was also some kind of meat for the carnivores although I can’t remember what it was. Anyway, my actual plate is the top left picture.
Dinner Continuation: a standard size slice of this Savory Carrot and Tarragon Tart.
Dessert: a small piece of this chocolate layer cake with buttercream frosting.
Post cake: we went for a hike in the woods and foraged for ramps. Mission accomplished.
There you have it. A day of road tripping eats, in the legal sense of course.
Alright enough about me. Let’s hear from you.
