Good morning, y’all! It’s a particularly good morning around these parts because a certain mom (cough, cough — mine — cough, cough) arrived last night. YAY! (*Insert happy dance here.*)
As I’ve mentioned a time or twelve, I really miss my family, and the fact that I don’t get to see my parents or brother nearly as often as I’d like really wears on me. However, this means that when any of them come to visit, it’s cause for serious celebration.
I’m going to take Friday and part of Monday off to hang out with mi madre, and I’m incredibly excited about it. Oh, and did I mention that I live within walking distance of a Marshall’s? We’re going to get our mother-daughter shop on, people.
Before that can happen, though, I have to get through the next 36 hours. This is helped — quite tremendously, at that — by the fact that it’s time for What I Ate Wednesday, hosted by the lovely Jenn from Peas & Crayons. This is my favorite mid-week tradition, and I love seeing what y’all have cooked up.
I’ve had a wide range of food, per the usual. There’s the daily coffee-n’-toast before hitting the gym, and the daily post-workout smoothie:
Lunches have ranged from leftover pad Thai to salad with leftover balsamic-herb chicken, grapes, red onions, feta, and some home-made Greek vinaigrette dressing. Snacks — which, as you might have discerned from past WIAW posts, are basically my reason for being — included Pamela’s Whenever Bars, Greek yogurt with granola, carrots and celery with dill dip, Mary’s Gone Crackers with Alouette cheese, and fruit galore (namely apples and cantaloupe). Dinners have also run the gamut — and I had a ton of pictures that I’d been taking throughout the week, only to find that the memory card was in my computer the entire effing time. EPIC FAIL! How was I able to not even notice the flashing red “NO MEMORY CARD” notice in the camera’s LCD screen!? This is why I’m scared to have kids, friends: the most obvious things totally escape me. Oy vey.
Given that most epic of food photography fails, I have but one picture of dinner for y’all: salad with rotisserie chicken and some papaya-poppyseed dressing from the good folks at Annie’s Naturals (this stuff is divine, BTW).
Now I’m off to the gym for my daily sweat session, but I want to know: Do you have a favorite type of salad dressing? Have you ever had a major photography fail?
Hope everyone has an awesome Wednesday!
