Hello! Welcome back! Welcome to What I Ate Wednesday (or in my case What I Ate Saturday this week.)
Saturday morning I was actually inspired to make breakfast for Chad and I. Awhile back he had brought home a crust less artichoke quiche he had found at a Farmer’s Market and I have been thinking about making it at home ever since. I finally took the plunge and went for it. It turned out OK, but there are some things I would like to tweak when I make it next time and before I share it on the blog.
I also had a Stonyfield Organic Cafe Latte Greek yogurt. I like this brand as it is one of the very few that use carrageenan. Though I don’t drink a lot of coffee I do love the flavor of coffee yogurt.
I have also been drinking a Dandelion Root Detox tea from a recipe I found from Jillian Michaels. The idea is to drink 60oz. (7 1/2 cups) of water with one dandelion root tea bag, 2tbsp. of lemon juice and 1 tsp. of cranberry juice. You drink it for 7 days and it is supposed to eliminate all that extra water weight. Truthfully I haven’t seen a major difference yet except that I‘ve woken up incredibly thirsty. I’ll let you know my results if I can actually stick with it for 7 days in a row.
Lunch I made us a nice Kale Salad with Peanut Dressing. It’s from a recipe based on the kale salad at Houstons and it’s been pretty popular on the blog.
I also made these super easy and quick Pea, Avocado and Radish Stacks. The original recipe called for the use of jicama cut into 1/2” planks. I will never use jicama in anything I ever make ever again. It was so difficult to cut. I can’t believe I didn’t los and finger or break a knife. Never again. We liked it better on good old fashioned crackers anyway.
Dinner was a date night. We went to a sushi restaurant which is an enormous feat for Chad. He is not a fan of raw fish but lately he has started to explore the world of veggie rolls. I am loving that he is becoming more adventurous and is willing to go to a sushi place with me. I love sushi- although this time I went for the Shrimp Bento Box. It was a lot of food.
I did get to have a shrimp sushi roll that was part of my Bento Box.
We ended our date with a visit to Twistee Treat. We love taking a trip to our favorite oversize ice cream cone for an ice cream treat of our own. We both went for strawberry shake. You can never go wrong with a strawberry!
Thank you to Jenn from Peas and Crayons for the Wednesday WIAW link up!
We had a great date night- always the highlight of my week. Do you have a night you set aside for a date night with your honey? What has been your best date ever?
