WIAW: Food Showdown

Today is yet another snow day. Yeah, I don’t even know what school is anymore. Not that I’m complaining! The only thing that concerns me is that I think we have only one more snow day allowed, if any, before we start chipping days off of spring break. That happened last year, and we had to come to school on the Wednesday of spring break……….Not happening again.

Anyway. Onto the WIAW fun hosted by the magnificent Jenn as always! Check out her blog to see tons of other mouthwateringly delicious eats.


For the most part, I enjoy the foods I eat (well, one would hope!) but there are always those foods that are just outstanding. This WIAW, I’m showing you some of the food winners in my book from the past week or so with a food showdown! And since I don’t usually take pictures of my lunches (I’m always eating them on-the-go), there is no lunch showdown. 🙂


Oatmeal Showdown

The winner: Salmon with farro and greens!

So there you have it— some of the knockout dishes that I’ve eaten in the past {two} weeks. Yes, I totally cheated on this WIAW by including some eats from two weeks ago, but I still ate all these things nevertheless!

I guess I should take advantage of this extra day to get ahead on homework, blogging, and such. I always say that I’ll do that, but executing it is a completely different story. Lord, grant me self-discipline.

Happy Wednesday!

So tell me:

What were some “winners” that you ate this week?

Are you a snack monster like me? What is your current favorite snack?

  1. All that’s going through my mind is “white chocolate coconut peanut butter”..that must be epic! I could never choose a favorite snack..chocolate is up there though 🙂

  2. Alison, I think you can already guess my favorite snack is ROASTED VEGGIES! Anddddd I am going to have to say my winners were my pumpkin spiced pancakes topped with globs of peanut butter.

    I may or may not have got jealous of all your dinners. I must have them. Now. Happy Wednesday lovie!

  3. Man, so many yummy things!
    I’m definitely a snacker and love yogurt messes, cereal, and quest bars (shocker I know😉) I’m thinking of tackling some homeade granola bars to save some $ and bring back good old wholesome real food!
    Have a great day off! Stay warm! And pray I don’t go stir crazy over here🙈😭😜

  4. Such a cute take on WIAW! But I have to say that pretty much all of the fodos you ate look like winners to me. And girl… I’m probably the biggest snacking fiend out there. Heck, even my lunches are made up of snack plates 😛 What can I say? I like food, so I enjoy being able to graze all day.

  5. I am SO jealous of your snow days! That’s crazy that you have to make up spring break – we go into summer instead! I think we can have one more day until we have to start making them up. LOVE this idea of a food showdown! I seriously wish I just ate everything you eat. It all looks so yummy!

  6. I loved this post! It’s so creative! 😀

    I don’t even know how I could possibly choose a winner.. all of your eats look absolutely MOUTHWATERING. I think some sharing of your food concoctions is in order. 😉
