What I Ate Wednesday 204

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

[breakfast] at least 8 mini phyllo quiche cups with extra Cabot habanero cheddar. Eggs and cheese are a match made in heaven, as are eggs and hot sauce. Add hotter than Hades cheese to eggs and you basically have spicy perfection. Deeeeelicious!

[lunch] an epic toasty sandwich with hummus, cranberry sauce, cucumber, shredded carrot and turkey

[dinner] pizzaaahhhhh! Paul and I ate nearly the entire pie, save for two slices that we scarfed for breakfast the following morning.

[dessert] my nightly yogurt peppermint pretzel faceplant — I’m on my last bag so I better slow down!

They’ll be yanking them from shelves soon and the hoarder in me wants to stock up, but the teenage girl in me is screaming “OMG JENN YOUR PANTS!” Much like a teenager, I tend to ignore her =)

Turkey and Veggie Sandwich with Hummus, Cranberry Sauce, Cucumber, and Carrots

That’s all folks! Cutting this one short to paint with chicken little. She’s just now realizing finger painting > licking paint off fingers and I’m in LOVE with all the crafts we’ve done lately! At [almost] a year and a half she communicates mostly with sign language and a few favorite words and phrases. Every time she sees her paint or paintbrush she signs “please” while squeaking “peas! peas!” annnnnnd I’m mush. If she says please I give her whatever she wants. Unfortunately she’s now starting to realize this. I’m screwed. HIDE THE COOKIES AND THE COFFEE!

  • I sure do love Habanero Cheddar, but putting it in little Phyllo quiches??? Brilliant!

  • OMG that sandwich is epic!!! <3

    • Jenn

      Right!? I want another nooooow!

  • Aww crafts with chickpea – I love it 🙂 When did you start teaching her sign language?

    • Jenn

      Right away! We signed on and off the first few months and then started taking it seriously and signing constantly with her at 6 months. She would sign here and there and then around 10 months it clicked majorly and she’s been a little chatty cathy ever since.

  • I’m dying over the white and dark chocolate popcorn they sell at Costco. I’ve had to refrain from buying it otherwise I eat the entire bag.

  • Love the new button, I updated my post! Thanks for the fun link-up, week after week! xoxo, ganeeban

    • Jenn

      Thanks for partying with me! xo

  • That sandwich looks like heaven!! One of these days when I remember to take pictures of my food I will have to link up 🙂

    • Jenn

      Thanks Rachel! Join any time! It’s always a pain in ze buttocks the first few times because remembering to snap away is like, so foreign of a concept! But after a while you kind of photograph them without even thinking lol — I’ve done like 204 so I literally am on autopilot at this point haha

  • I love your peppermint pretzels. I’ll have to look for some. I’ve been killing Annie’s White Chocolate Peppermint popcorn, and it is all the flavors that are sacred in the world. 🙂

    • Jenn

      THAT EXISTS!?!?!?!?!!?? OMG!

  • As always, your food photos are drool-worthy Jenn! I also love the new WIAW button. Thanks again for hosting another great Wednesday.

  • Hi Jenn! Thanks for hosting. I’m try to fill up on healthy stuff this week, because I’m also faceplanting into all the dessert and wine and good stuff starting this weekend when I travel to Florida to visit my family. Have fun painting! Happy Wednesday:)

  • That sandwich looks HEAVENLY. So do those breakfast quiches! And… YUM to those pretzels. My fav <3

  • Your food always looks amazing!! 😛

  • Hello peppermint pretzels! I need to get my hands on some of those for the holidays!

  • It’s such a struggle when our cravings are yelling for more yogurt pretzels/ice cream/chocolate and our pants are saying OMG no hahaha! I totally feel ya on that one!

  • Awww, how sweet! I need to get better at saying “please” around Ethan. That’s great that she communicates so well. Ethan is 14 months now and calls me “momom,” which I loooooove!

  • The quiche looks awesome and I love the new WIAW pic! Thanks for hosting. 🙂

  • Cute button!

    We love egg muffins (cups) at my house!

  • I love the new button! And I want to have all your food! I try to hunt down phyllo cups but I am afraid that Germany (again) doesn’t sell them. Maybe I have to make my own. Those mini quiche cups look so darn tasty!

    • Jenn

      I’m sure they have phyllo dough! You can use a muffin tin and a bit of butter to layer them into little cups! Same wonderful taste and even bigger mini quiche as a result!

  • I love the new button!!! Gotta go update. I’d like to update my breakfast with a phyllo cup or two…

    • Jenn

      I’ll update your brekkie, come visit!

  • You are right – that is one EPIC looking sandwich! Mmm!!

    BTW – I love the new button. It’s adorable.

    • Jenn

      Thanks Jessie!

  • that sandwich!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Those quiche cups really look so tasty. Also I’m convinced it’s not possible for you to take a bad food pic!

    • Jenn

      You’re too kind! Look deep enough in my archives and you’ll find the hottest of hot messes photo wise. They’re embarrassing!

  • LOVE the new button!
