What I Ate Wednesday December 3 2014

Morning folks! I hope those of you that celebrated had an amazing Thanksgiving! We celebrated ours as a trio, and I had forgotten how wonderful it was to cook alongside my partner in crime after not seeing him for months. Onions taste better when he chops them and pie crust transforms into flaky perfection when he manhandles it – fact! Our sous chef really stepped up his A game this year and was promptly paid in kisses and fed stuffing like a king.


File this one under “how to get a pony for Christmas

That stuffing by the way? Life changing! I slacked on blogging the recipe but if you guys are interested I’ll try to post it before the next round of holiday shenanigans takes over. Pinterest is already absolutely inundated with gingerbread and peppermint but I’m still over here thinking about my mom’s veggie stuffing. Sah-woon. 

Oh, duh! WIAW! I almost forgot!

Last week’s eats featured cookie cake for breakfast. This week? Apple pie a la mode! My explanation is simple: when you bake a hugh jass deep dish pie for 2.5 people you’re going to have leftovers. And of course when you have leftover dessert, you eat it for breakfast. It’s a thing.

I’d really like it to be a weekly thing, but I also really want to be able to button my jeans, which by some Thanksgiving miracle still seem to fit! #thankyouspandex

I love the pic of little chickpea and your husband…so precious! And I’d be all about seeing that stuffing recipe. Thanks for hosting Jenn!

Those top daddy daughter photos seriously made me tear up! Even more serious is how awesome it is that your husband cooks! That apple pie looks perfect and turkey noodle soup sounds divine right now.

Please adopt me and feed me taco cups.


Keep thinking about the stuffing… you’ll have plenty of gingerbread and peppermint to think about when the cookie tin arrives in your mailbox!

Your WIAW posts are always my favorite. Your attitude towards food is awesome/inspiring and I love your jokes (“ahem.. fruit” for example). AND omg I hope you frame those pictures!!!

Heather @ Housewife Glamour

That “taco salad” looks amazing! So does the soup! Excited to see the recipe. Hey, apple pie for breakfast is totally acceptable in my book. Happy Wednesday! 🙂

Ashley @ A Lady Goes West

Hi Jenn! You must be so happy to have your man home for the holidays! And pie for breakfast is great. I should do that more often. Thanks for hosting the link-up. Huge turnout this week!
