WIAW #101 [What I Ate… on Christmas!]

I hope everyone is having oodles of happy healthy holiday fun this month!  Next stop – New Years!  I am only slightly bugging out over it being 2013 in a few days.

Until I come to grips with the end of 2012 – let’s get our What I Ate Wednesday on!  If you’re new to the blog, [click here] to read about WIAW and all the insanity that typically ensues!  For those of you who know the drill already and came here to party — I cannot wait to see what you have in store for us this week!  Let’s do this!
breakfast banana, black coffee, and cornbread — pretend that’s normal!  Toast is for pansies.  Rather, toast is for people who don’t forget the bakery sourdough when they go to the grocery store.  I paid for it… then left it behind.  Whoops!  lunch homemade ameoba-shaped pizza with fresh basil, roma tomatoes, garlic, red sauce, mozzarella and jalapenos.  We were on a time crunch and picked up fresh, all-natural pizza dough from the grocery store and halved it to make two pizzas.  I hand-tossed it so the dough would do that amazing crusty, bubbly thing on the edges with a super-thin center crust.  To say it was amazing is a total understatement.  I think I need to do another pizza post soon!  snack a little over half of this dark chocolate peppermint bark bar and a mug of peppermint tea
Hold the phone — I think we need another look at that pizza!
Much better =)
snack another stolen slice of corn bread — if it’s in the house, it’s in my face dinner brought to you by the most random salsa cravings ever!  P wanted guac, I wanted salsa… O-freaking-le!  Black bean nachos with gouda and cheddar, wicked easy homemade restaurant style salsa, and my go-to guacamole made by the pilot.  While stuffing our faces we waxed poetic about how amazing it would be to open up a fresh-mex restaurant.  My pipe dreams are all food related, clearly.

Forgive me for the crapola ipad photos.  I’m far too lazy to build a new light box to replace the smooshed one from last year, and the sun seems to peace out around 5 pm each day.  Rude.  How are you guys faring with the winter lighting situation?  I’ve been running outside daily to help combat any seasonal mood swings and opening all the shades [er…. paper blinds!] in the house for natural lighting whenever the sun decides to show it’s beautiful face.  If only it were more often!

Ok kids — your turn!  Let’s see what you’ve been whipping up lately!  
Meals, snacks, fitness, and fun.  Spill it!

    That pizza looks phenomenal! And I’m pretty sure that I will soon be trying some restaurant-style salsa. Yum. And, this sounds silly, but I love the salsa dish! So cute!

    Yes, the pizza does look great! Recipe please.

    I hate it when I leave things behind at the store. If I remember right away I’ll go back but not if it’s been awhile when I realize it.
