WIAW: Lately

12 Jun

Peas and Crayons

I really don’t usually participate in What I Ate Wednesday but I have ALL these food pics just sitting on my phone. I don’t have a day’s worth of eats, just some yummy stuff I’ve made lately that I thought was worth sharing.


This meal was a throw together that ended up being SO good

Grilled zucchini with a runny egg smothered in avocado basil pesto and tomatoes. OMGG


Yummy lunch last week- grass fed burger with grilled zucchini and rutabaga hash. Rutabaga is sautéed in coconut oil and mixed with shredded coconut.



One dinner last week- slow cooker beef shanks with roasted broccoli. I LOVE roasting broccoli or cauliflower in the oven with garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil.


Breakfast ( I guess I kind of went backwards) Saturday. Coconut rutabaga hash again with two drippy eggs. You have got to try rutabaga hash if you haven’t. Better than potatoes.


Fancy stem less wine glasses I got for my shower made their first appearance Friday night!


Delicious and colorful salad on Sunday with hard boiled egg, tomatoes, roasted/grilled peppers, banana peppers and scallions. YUM!


And I’ll leave you with the picture of the cupcakes I made for my kids Monday. I held my ground and didn’t eat one but they were devoured in no time. Two more days of school left ! Happy yet a little sad.

Most of my food pictures look nasty, but trust me they tasted good. I always feel inadequate in the ‘great looking food’ dept when it comes to blogging.

Anyone else feel the same way? Food looks nasty but tastes good?!?!

    hahaha, I totally get what you mean! I like to say that, “Taste is first. Appearance is second.” 😛 My food always looks SO gross, but I don’t care! Rock on, Andrea 😀

    Cupcakes look great 🙂 Simple but I’m sure they were delicious! Also, I find that a lot of my food ends up looking gross and that’s why I have been so behind with my ‘Breakfast Challenge’ that I started in March (on my blog.) Everything I keep making ends up looking really disgusting. I think I need to be more patient when I’m cooking because it’s mostly due to the items being burnt. Ha.
