WIAW: Weekend Snow Days

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

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?


The Bottomless Pit That is My Stomach

Good afternoon! 

I hope you’re all having a nice Saturday. My family has been enjoying some rest and relaxation so far. Dad just came back from working out at the track, which motivates me to do a little somethin’ somethin’ later. Or I might just take a rest day. 😀 We’ll see. Our plans for tonight include Mass and a dinner at a Brazilian steakhouse for which my mom bought a Groupon. Excited to try it out!

When I woke up (for the second time) at 10, I was not feeling full whatsoever from my first breakfast. In fact, I was more than ready to eat again. My stomach is just a bottomless pit today!  I guess it’s understandable since I had eaten 4 hours ago, but still. Am I finally growing?!

There are some days during which my stomach feels full at every meal even before I eat, and then there are some days like today during which I am one hungry, hungry hippo. I just go with the flow!

After having an apple….

English muffin (again!) with mashed avocado, sautéed spinach, and two sunnies. Sriracha Jackson Pollack style.

Crackers and hummus  + another glass o’ milk on the side!

Enjoy your weekend!

So tell me: Do you have days where your stomach feels like a bottomless pit? Any fun plans tonight or tomorrow?
