What I Ate Wednesday – Leftover Lovin’

Happy What I Ate Wednesday, kids!

Breakfast Brussels Sprout and Egg Scramble


Breakfast Brussels Sprout and Egg Scramble:

I had some leftover steamed sprouts on hand and scrambled them up with fluffy eggs seasoned with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Simple and delicious!

Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich with Turkey, Stuffing, and Cranberry Sauce

Leftover Thanksgiving Sandwich with Turkey, Stuffing, and Crock-Pot Cranberry Sauce

Ok so it’s not Thanksgiving, granted, but I made myself a huge Thanksgiving spread last week and the chickpea and I LIVED off these sandwiches for lunch every day. I also had lots of goodies to make turkey soup, broth, and all kids of freezer meals. I defrosted a little bit of my go-t0 crock-pot cranberry sauce for the occasion even. It was heavenly. I basically live for these leftover sandwiches each year. Luckily I always do one off season spread plus another two during holiday season. There are many of these in my future. SCORE!

Schlotzky's Pizza

Schlotzky’s Deli Pizza

A crazy errand-filled evening resulted in some pizza face-plantage. They have a drive-thru…enough said! I didn’t make it through the whole pie but I made a considerable dent!

Snackage consisted of a few squares off my new favorite dark chocolate quiona bar and a few bites of the chickpea’s cheese stick. She’s going through a phase where she REALLY likes sharing her food with me and pretty much insists I take bites of her yogurt, cheese, and crackers. As for her black beans, chicken, fruit, and veggies? She won’t readily share those. In fact she eats those so freakishly fast that they’re pretty much gone the second they hit the plate.

  • I am officially craving a Thanksgiving sandwich!! Yum. I live for them too 🙂

  • So I want to make fun of you for your early Thanksgiving eats..but..that sandwich!! Drool!! That pizza doesn’t look half bad either. And I had pizza 3 days in a row over the weekend! 😉

  • Even though I just ate breakfast, your pictures have just conjured a hunger inside of me so fierce I may walk to the vending machine! Every week, your food porn (or pics) make my stomach smile 🙂 xoxo, ganeeban

  • I LOVE Thanksgiving sandwiches and haven’t had one in forever. Have you ever heard of the Earl of Sandwich chain? They make the VERY BEST Thanksgiving sandwich ever. Have a great Wednesday and thanks for hosting the link-up.

  • Must be the pregnancy craving speaking because I could really go for that pizza. Not so sure I’d be up to sharing either =D

    • Jenn

      Right!? This is why we do Thanksgiving for xmas too! And sometimes New Years. We have issues =) Yummy issues.

  • mmmm leftovers from thanksgiving + sandwiches = SO GOOD!!!

  • I hope you know how obsessed I am with seeing what you eat. I can’t explain my obsession.

    anyway, I’m also super impressed you made a Thanksgiving spread. I’d like to do the same, but I’m just over here napping and being lazy. Ugh!

  • I love Schlotzky’s pizza!! The chicken pesto one is my fav!

    • Jenn

      Ahhh yum; yes! That’s a good one!

  • All of your food looks amazing, but oh man, I so want your breakfast right now! We’ve been loving brussel sprouts lately, and ran out yesterday.

    • Jenn

      I ran out too! My grocery store only has teeny bags and ran out of the stalks of sprouts and I’ve been so bummed out; the little prepped bags are way expensive! Hopefully we both get some more b.sprouts soon! =)

  • I didn’t know Schlotzky’s was still around! I used to love their subs!

    • Jenn

      Right!? I was excited that we have one here. There was a SD next door to the pet store I worked at as a kid so I pretty much lived off their food! They even catered the company xmas parties!

  • Oh my goodness I love this time of year just for the leftover Thanksgiving sandwiches… or the store bought Thanksgiving sandwiches.. either way, I’m not fussy. Just give me turkey, cranberry, and stuffing in sandwich form and I am a happy girl!

    • Jenn

      IT’S THE BEST TIME OF YEAR! Yes I screamed that =)

  • That thanksgiving leftover sandwich looks incredible! I’ve never made anything leftover that looks that good, love it!

    • Jenn

      Girl you need to give your leftovers some TLC! They can be even better than the original =) You can doooo it!

  • I’m so glad you linked to your crockpot cranberry sauce! I’m making that this year!
