I can’t believe I almost forgot to write this post.
It’s this crazy snow that’s throwing me off. We didn’t have a snow day (or 2-hour delay or early dismissal) yesterday, but ALL the surrounding schools had a day off. People think it’s because the school sort of messed up last week by calling a snow day when there was really nothing sticking to the roads, so now they’re trying to make it up. I’m not complaining if that means we don’t have to come in for a make up day sometime in June. The only issue is that the roads were actually dangerous and icy yesterday. I feel bad for school superintendents— they have to depend on meteorologists that are already pretty unreliable, and then a whole school district depends on them. Rough.
Speaking of snow days, this WIAW is a day of eats from Saturday and Sunday, which were spent inside mostly because of the white stuff. More time inside meant more time to make yummy food though! 🙂
Thanks for hosting as always, Jenn!
Best (yet ugliest) breakfast: overnight oats with sunflower seed butter and banana mixed in (and unpictured cereal for a crunchy topping!)
Greek yogurt, banana slices, crumbled banana nut muffin, and pepita sunseed butter
Salmon on greens + plum + plenty of freeze dried edamame (<— stuff is like crack)
Salmon on greens again + avocado toast + probably more edamame
Fluffy cornbread muffin straight out of the oven
Anddddd edamame. Edamame. Edamame.
Chili and more cornbread
Baby froyo + a banana nut muffin fresh out of the oven
Monkey bread! (This plus a couple more… 😉 )
I definitely had a happy belly after these wonderful weekend eats!
Happy Wednesday (last one before Christmas)!!
So tell me: Has it snowed where you live? What is the best thing you ate this weekend? What is the best dessert you’ve eaten recently?

cornbread and chili may just be one of the best meals of all time & a match made in heaven 🙂
I really do wish OO looked better 🙂 I have loved my chocolate bark that I made this weekend – almost too much! Enjoy the rest of the week!
That sounds tasty and festive! Hope the rest of your week is wonderful as well, Kaitlin! 🙂
What a snow day conundrum! Icy roads are no fun – I hear you on that.
The little bit of snow we had this season so far melted away in the blink of an eye. Right now I’m not complaining because I prefer my commute to be snow-free. But white Christmas would (have) be(en) nice – it’s very unlikely to happen.
I’ve never had Monkey bread before but it looks delicious.
A White Christmas is always fun! As long as it doesn’t mean cancellation of any holiday parties 😉
Hopefully i can eat as well as you someday! It’s very tough for me.
As for snow….it may hit 70 today…yay Texas lol
Little changes (such as veggies+hummus instead of chips) every day will help! Keeping healthy snacks in sight all the time is also a great way for me to eat more nutritious foods.
70 degrees sounds just perfect!
I wish colleges cancelled school. I have yet to have a single cancelled class due to weather and the snow can get pretty bad here in the winter. Granted, most students are on campus walking, but most of the upperclassmen have to drive. I’m glad I’m not them right now. Driving in the snow makes me nervous!
Oh, I hate when everyone else had cancellations or delays and my school didn’t. That’s kind of strange though that your school wouldn’t have had least had a delay. At least where I’m from there aren’t any limits on those?
I’m glad you linked to all of the bread recipes you made. The monkey bread looks fantastic. And I’m totally jealous of that salmon. I love fish but can’t have it in my dorm room for the obvious smell reasons. Haha.
Aw, it’s such a bummer that colleges don’t cancel unless there’s some sort of super storm!
Man, I will miss salmon so much when I go to college next year…
There’s that delicious monkey bread taunting me again! Ohhh it looks so gooey and wonderful. What’s not so wonderful is that it’s currently snowing outside, but I guess it’s not so bad since I don’t have to be anywhere and it makes sitting inside extra cozy 😀
Surprisingly, there’s just a few more pieces of monkey bread left in the fridge…Maybe my family knows that they’re reserved for you?? 😉
Have a lovely cozy evening!
Freeze dried edemame?! That sounds awesome! Best thing I’ve eaten recently has been surprise surprise pancakes…I’m just obsessed. Need. To. Stop
It IS awesome! My mom and I agree that the stuff is dangerously addictive. One handful = ten handfuls.
I totally dig that new pancake every day thing. Never too many pancakes!
I have no snow. But I would like that it appeared. To celebrate New year without snow quite sadly 😉
