WIAW [Grillin & bakin]

06/15/2011 at 9:23 am 79 comments

Wednesday’s have officially become an obsession of mine thanks to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons. Nothing better than posting up your delicious munchies while gawking over the yummy foods of others.

Peas and CrayonsSo link up and join the party peeps Smile

First up is my favorite meal of the day…Breakfast of course!

What’s better than having a jar of cinnamon raisin pb? Having an empty one for OIAJ!

Topped with plenty of delicious granola!

For lunch I spent the day with Frankie so we decided to make an indoor bbq Smile

Our chicken skewers with onions and zucchini and corn on the cobs were in place!

The final product! Yumm. I had one veggie skewer made just for me Winking smile

For dinner we made more of a bake


And mine

We boiled rotini pasta, cooked up chicken, and sauteed zucchini on the stove top. Then we used a pyrex to layer the pasta, chicken, and zucchini topped with Ragu pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese. This went back into the oven for about 10 minutes until the cheese was ooey gooey and melted!

Win? You betcha!

Delicious down to the last bite!

So what’s your favorite meal of the day? Lunch, breakfast, or dinner? [I vote breakfast!]

  • 11. Amanda @ Running with Spoons  |  06/15/2011 at 10:36 am

    Love the idea of an indoor BBQ! Grilled foods just scream summer (which officially starts in 1 week!!!)

    And breakfast is for sure the best meal of the day… No questions asked 😀

    ❤ ❤

    • 12. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 6:59 pm

      My twin

  • 13. Shanna, like Banana  |  06/15/2011 at 10:48 am

    Hmm, that’s a toughie…I like breakfast (oats, pancakes, coffee), but I like how long and leisurely dinner can be 😉

  • 14. Cait @ Beyond Bananas  |  06/15/2011 at 10:50 am

    That indoor grillin meal looks amazing!

  • 15. Lisa@Healthy Diaries  |  06/15/2011 at 10:51 am

    Everything looks great, especially that pasta bake! I love any kind of baked pasta but only really have it a few times a year. My nonna in Italy makes it the best!

  • 16. runningtothekitchen  |  06/15/2011 at 11:05 am

    Those kabobs look awesome!
    Usually bfast is my fav. I get super excited about it when I wake up. Kinda sad huh?

    • 17. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 6:59 pm

      Not sad, I do too lol

  • 18. Andrea @ Vegvacious  |  06/15/2011 at 11:15 am

    Breakie is by far my fave meal of the day — like you, I’m a lover of OATS and there’s nothing better than a lazy Sunday when you have time to go out for breakie with your hubby & friends. Your eats look awesome!!

    • 19. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:00 pm


  • 20. ordinaryarts  |  06/15/2011 at 11:27 am

    I love OIAJ! I saw my husband heading for the trash with an empty jar of peanut butter, so I practically flew across the room in slow motion yelling, “No! My OIAJ!” Waste not!


    • 21. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:00 pm

      I love it!

  • 22. Tiff  |  06/15/2011 at 12:03 pm

    That dinner looks great! Breakfast is usually my favorite meal, unless it’s a weekend, and I get something good – pizza or burgers, perhaps???

  • 23. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!  |  06/15/2011 at 12:18 pm

    I love how gourmet both those meals were!!! YUM-eeeee!

    And the idea of making a single serving of baked pasta is awesome….such a good plan!

  • 24. cinnamonalicious  |  06/15/2011 at 12:35 pm

    Yum everything looks delish!
    Breakfast for me too! Or snacks…can snacks be counted?!lol!

    • 25. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:00 pm

      I love my snacks!

  • 26. TheNoviceNosher  |  06/15/2011 at 12:38 pm

    Nice! That baked pasta dish looks like a really great idea for when I’ve got a bunch of leftover pasta and veggies lying around. Thanks for the idea! 🙂

  • 27. Jenna-Marie  |  06/15/2011 at 2:43 pm

    mmm Kabobs are the best.

  • 34. The Teenage Taste  |  06/15/2011 at 3:44 pm

    Mmmmm…OIAJ I need to get them back into my life! PB&Co. is the bomb!

  • 35. Cate  |  06/15/2011 at 4:56 pm

    Ooo chicken skewers sound good! and I love little pasta bakes so easy to make and super tasty!

  • 36. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)  |  06/15/2011 at 5:02 pm

    Breakfast is ALWAYS my favorite meal of the day! I had chocolate oats this morning and my lord, they were amazing!

  • 37. Tessa at Amazing Asset  |  06/15/2011 at 5:40 pm

    That is my FAVORITE type of PB! That must have been an epic breakfast 🙂 Dinner is probably my favorite…but breakfast used to be before I got all “afraid” of consuming too many calories in the morning. Working on that for sure!

  • 38. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries  |  06/15/2011 at 6:17 pm

    I think you know my favorite meal of the day 🙂 But of my Lord! Those bakes that you made for dinner look so delicious! I’m totally copying that idea!

    • 39. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:02 pm

  • 47. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  06/15/2011 at 9:03 pm

    Breakfast is totally my favourite too! If I wasn’t concerned about getting in all my nutrients, I would eat breakfast for every meal of the day. 😛

    Your pasta bake looks so incredible. I think I’m going to have to steal that idea from you sometime!

    • 48. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:03 pm

      Lol that’s y i don’t eat breakfast all day 😦

  • 49. Gina  |  06/15/2011 at 9:06 pm

    My favorite meal is dessert, does that count? 🙂

    • 50. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:03 pm

      Yes it does 😛

  • 51. mindrunningwild  |  06/15/2011 at 9:08 pm

    That’s such a good idea with the pyrex!! I am now craving skewered veggies. yum!!
    OIAJ is a classic that will never get old ever. I just love it!! I should get going on my nut butters- then I’d get to enjoy one too!

  • 52. paoang  |  06/15/2011 at 9:21 pm

    Ahhhh everything looks so good! The skewers look amazing…and that pasta bake! Oh my! Sounds easy to make, too!

    Yay for OIAJ…I love how much of those you have! They always look delicious!

    • 53. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:03 pm

      As do yours!

  • 54. Carey @ Positively Blonde  |  06/15/2011 at 10:09 pm

    I seriously cannot allow myself to have the PB and co Cinnamon Swirl in my apartment. I will eat it all!! That stuff is addicting! But sooo good 🙂

  • 55. Sweet Cheeks  |  06/15/2011 at 10:50 pm

    I think most of us bloggers agree that breakfast is the best! Because, for me at least, it’s usually basically dessert, lol. No better way to start the day!

  • 56. Justeen @ Blissful Baking  |  06/15/2011 at 11:12 pm

    Such delicious eats! Breakfast is most definitely my favorite meal of the day 🙂

    • 61. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:04 pm


  • 62. Meri  |  06/16/2011 at 12:39 am

    Your kebobs look so great! And I vote dinner, hands down.

  • 63. moveovercelery  |  06/16/2011 at 11:07 am

    Love the idea of indoor bbq and definitely the his and her paste bake. 🙂 They look great. I wish my grocery store carried that peanut butter! I was able to find some Bee’s Knees for once in my life!

  • 64. kate @a healthy passion  |  06/16/2011 at 1:38 pm

    I love breakfast and have to have breakfast before any other meals even if its 3 in the afternoon

  • 65. Stefanie @TheNewHealthy  |  06/16/2011 at 1:44 pm

    That meal is a total win! I love making similar, yet separate dishes for Sam and I in pyrex dishes! So easy, and then we’re both happy! 🙂

  • 66. Nicole, RD  |  06/16/2011 at 2:29 pm

    Food-wise, breakfast. But I love dinner because it’s usually the bit of time each day I get to spend with the hubs!!!

  • 67. Caroline  |  06/16/2011 at 3:25 pm

    Cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter!?! I had no idea such a thing existed. I need to get my hands on some of that. Where can you buy it? 🙂

    • 68. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:05 pm

      I use to buy it from Amazon but they raised the price :<

  • 69. Serena  |  06/16/2011 at 5:41 pm

    Obsessed with that PB. I just got it and I drool at the thought of it! Of course, this WIAW is making me drool twice as much. Love the bake and skewers 😀

  • 70. Mel (mmmstories)  |  06/16/2011 at 11:40 pm

    Seriously every WIAW I want to live in your kitchen! Breakfast food is my favorite but I loove the break in the day that is lunch!

  • 71. emma  |  06/17/2011 at 7:00 am

    That pasta looks so good, I want that for my dinner now!! Dinner is definitely my favourite meal of the day, I can get so creative at times and I really look forward to it!

  • 72. Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen)  |  06/17/2011 at 8:56 am

    Breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day! 😀 I don’t understand how some people don’t eat breakfast. I don’t think I could live without it!

    Your eats look AMAZING!! You’re inviting me over soon right? 😉

    I need some cinnamon raisin PB!! But my grocery store doesn’t have any 😦

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

    ❤ ❤

    • 73. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:06 pm

      Come over anytime!

  • 74. Kristie  |  06/17/2011 at 9:38 am

    Mmm that bake looks amazing. Anything with pasta, sauce and cheese is good in my books. I love the indoor grill too, how cute.
    I’d say breakfast is my fave but dinner can be pretty up there too! … I think just anytime that involves eating is pretty up there actually haha.

  • 75. IHeartVegetables  |  06/17/2011 at 10:36 am

    I think breakfast is my favorite… judging by the fact that I’m SO cranky if I don’t get breakfast!!! hahaha. I think it’s literally the thing that motivates me to get out of the bed 😉

    • 76. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:07 pm

      Me too 😀

  • 77. Tara  |  06/17/2011 at 10:46 am

    Your breakfasts always look amazing!!! Nothing better than an empty jar of cinnamon raisin pb. My mom goes through a jar a week, so I always have them! My favorite meal is definitely breakfast because I have a major sweet tooth and I don’t feel bad if it’s all sweet!

    • 78. Jenny  |  06/17/2011 at 7:06 pm

      I love it so much haha

  • 79. Kelsey @ Snacking Squirrel  |  06/17/2011 at 11:50 am

    WOW! you did a good job on your dinner- that looked INCREDIBLE!!!
