What I Ate Wednesday

It seems like lately, I can only commit to these posts! I have others in my draft folder, but I just can't get to them! Here is what I ate Wednesday Tuesday, August 14, 2012

 Before I ran for the train, I had half a pink grapefruit - no sugar

 When I got to my desk, I enjoyed a homemade oatmeal, chocolate chip muffin and my coffee in my Contigo travel cup!

Lunch was two homemade mini quiche with some dried out baby carrots and mixed greens with balsamic

Desert from lunch

Afternoon snack - peaches are a summer staple around these parts. I ADORE peaches. When I was pregnant, I sometimes ate up to three in one day.

Oh hai complete crap day at work! Why not eat some feelings on the train ride home?

Dinner - farmer's market chicken and veg pot pie (another staple as our market is only on during the summer. I do not make these - I buy them and no, they don't have veg only options), smiles and corn
Post baseball. Crappy, muddy game (we were winning and then lost), crappy day. More feelings consumed. I had two beers.

And there it is, my day in eats!


  1. What kind of quiches are those? They look amazingly delicious!

    And I totally looove those smiley fries! :D

  2. 1 pkg of mini tart shells (unsweetened)
    3 strips of bacon
    1/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
    1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
    2 eggs beaten
    1/2 cup cream
    pinch of salt and pepper

    Directions - heat oven to 375. Place empty shells on a baking sheet, bake for 12 minutes. Cool slightly. Meanwhile in a large skillet over medium heat cook bacon until crisp. Remove to a paper lined plate to drain. Crumble or chop bacon into small pieces, Toss bacon with the cheese and thyme and divide among shells. In a small bowl whisk together eggs cream salt and pepper. Spoon equal amounts into each shell. Bake for about 15 minutes until quiche is set and shells are golden.

    I used no bacon and added green onion and half a cherry tomato in each instead.

  3. I used to love going to farmer's markets for such things. Our farmers don't have fresh pies like that in Southern California.


Thanks for joining in the conversation!
