WIAW [Grillin & bakin]

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!]

Weekend Recap

Hi there!! Hope you all had a great weekend. I know I did, although I would have been happier had the Miami Heat actually won last night Oh well can’t win them all…

Friday night I went out with my girlfriends to watch is was funny but definitely not as good as part 1. I thought they were trying too hard to make it like the original.

After the movie, me and the girls went to our usual hangout spot (Denny’s!!!) to have some late night munching. There’s a pretty good chance on any given Friday or Saturday night that you’ll find me at Denny’s after midnight. Usually polishing off one of these…

When I say I can finish off an entire Oreo sundae, I mean it people Winking smile

Saturday morning I was up early at 8am to hit up Zumba and get my dance on. I love when exercising doesn’t feel like working out. It was a lot of fun but I was ready for breakfast when I got home.

I had some cereal Surprised smile Don’t get me wrong, I love my oats but it’s just way too hot!! And to be honest I’ve gotten lazy in making them lol

Cinnamon Burst Cheerios with sliced strawberries, yogurt, cottage cheese, 1/2 nanner somewhere in there and topped with milk New obsession? You betcha!

Saturday night I went bowling with my friends and my skills were lacking to say the least. A lot of gutter balls and failed attempts. Still fun to get out of the house and do something different.

Well there you have it peeps! My weekend recap Smile

Have you seen The Hangover 2? Love it/hate it? Sequels are hardly ever better than the original

Peas and Crayons

First up is breakfast!

Made a Fitnessista cookie dough breakfast topped with yogurt, sliced nanner, Kashi Berry Crisp, and almond milk

For lunch, I went with my mom to my cousin’s bridal shower at a fancy restaurant. It was gorgeousss and rented out for all the girls.

Me and my mom Smile

For our appetizer we had a delicious salad

For the main course we had a choice of either chicken, Mahi Mahi or Churrasco. I went with the chicken

The chicken breast was the size of my head…Way too big. The sides were incredible; mashed potatoes and green beans! Yumm

This was the cute table decoration that I got to take home

It’s still in my room Smile

For dessert we had the cutest cupcakes ever

Super adorable tiny cupcakes (everything is prettier when it’s bite size)

There you have it friends! My fabulous WIAW eats.

Hi bloggies!!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I know I did Smile  I went to my cousin’s bridal shower (pictures will be up later), saw X-Men:First Class [If you haven’t seen it, watch it!!], and got to eat s’mores for the first time.

And now I’ll indulge you in the second half of my foodie survey

L is for Lunch, what was yours today?

I haven’t had lunch yet but I will tell you about my lunch from yesterday. I had a pasta salad with feta cheese and chicken covered in light Italian dressing. It was delicious.

M: is for Microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack?

I love making Ashley’s oat cake in the microwave

Easy, fast, and super delicious!

N: is for nutrients, do you like carbs, fats, or proteins best?

This is an easy one. I’m a fats lover all the way!

Give me the peanut butter please

Cinnamon raisin swirl=

O: is for Oil, what kind do you like to use?

I always use extra virgin olive oil for cooking.

P: is for Protein, how do you gets yours?

I get in a lot of protein. Whether it’s in the form of chicken, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, or my delicious fro-yo!

Who wouldn’t like to eat this for protein? Winking smile

Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats?

This is an easy one. I love my oats hot, cold, and every way in between.


R: is for Roasting, what is your favorite thing to roast?

Veggies! And lots of them. I love roasting up asparagus or potatoes

S: is for Sandwich, what’s your favorite kind?

When it comes to sammies, I’m pretty boring. I either do a classic turkey and cheese combo or I do a spin off of breakfast and do an egg, cheese, and sausage sammie.

T: is for Travel, how do you handle eating while traveling?

It all depends on where I’m going but usually I tend to indulge. How often to do you get to travel? When I went on my last cruise I did choose the more calorie friendly options but I had my ice cream and my decadent tropical drinks Winking smile

The bf and I at Key West (May 2010)

U: is for Unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos?

All of my food combos are weird in one way or another. One time I was eating a waffle sandwich with ham and cheese covered in syrup and my friends thought I was disgusting….Don’t they sell this stuff at like Dunkin Donuts?? I didn’t think I was that weird…

V: is for Vitamins, what kind do you take?

I take Centrum chewables Smile

Omg I love me some wasabi. Yay all the way!!

X: is for Xtra special, what food holds a special place in your heart?

I definitely have a soft spot for oreos could anyone not??!

Y: is for Yogurt, you can only afford 1 cup, what kind do you purchase?…

Eek this one is hard because I love yogurt! I’m going to say Dannon Light and Fit. ❤ the stuff

Z: is for Zero guilt, what food can you enjoy over and over without any guilt?

If I plan on overindulging then any food that I eat I consider to be guilt free. I love to make fro-yo at home because I can control what goes into it so it’s never “guilty” but sometimes you need the naughty toppings.

Love Menchies

There you have it! My full survey. Now tell me…

What special food holds a spot in your heart?

ABC’s of Food!

Happy Friday!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far. I’m having quite the writer’s block so I decided to do a survey that has been going around the blog world. Smile

Let’s get started peeps!

A: is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety?

I’m not really into apples, I gotta be honest. I know you all love your apples dipped in peanut butter but I’m not really a fan. If I had to choose I would pick Golden Delicious.

B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?

I love bread. I went a long time without eating it when I use to think that carbs=evil. Glad I know better now. There’s just something about cinnamon raisin bread that owns my heart.

C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!)

Wow this is a tough one. I love all kinds of cereal but as of recently I’ve been pretty addicted to Cheerios. Not just any kind of cheerios…Chocolate Cheerios! Today I had Cinnamon Burst for the first time and I fell in love.

I will never give up cereal

D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy?

When it comes to sweet treats I’m like a 7 year old. I want it covered with vanilla frosting and sprinkles galore!

Btw today is National Donut Day, so hit up your Dunkin Donuts for a free donut with the purchase of a drink. Nommm

E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared?

I’m a big lover of eggs over easy.

Especially in a sammie!! Nomomom

F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product?

Hmm I use to live off the fat free goods back in the day. Now I say bring me the peanut butter!! But there are some fat free foods I fancy. I love fat free refried beans in burritos and yummy veggies.

G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at?

I wish I had a Trader Joes by me but I don’t. I shop at Publix, Winn Dixie, and the occasional Wally World (Walmart).

I also like Costco when I’m running low on nut butters and need to stock up!

H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink?

This is an easy one. Coffee!!! I love it. Must have my daily cup in the morning to get my motor running.

I hate to say I’m addicted but I kind of am lol

I’m all about the french vanilla roast. Yumm!

I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.

Since most of you know about my obsession with all things oreo related it’s no suprise my favorite ice cream is Cookies and Cream!

Add a topping?…Oreos, duh!!

J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor?

Of course I eat them! My favorite is apricot, especially over my warm oats.

K: is for Kashi, name your favorite Kashi product?

I love Kashi cereals, so much healthier than all those processed brands. My favorites are Berry Crisp and Honey Sunshine.

I don’t eat cereal alone Winking smile

There you have the first half of my survey! Smile

So tell me what’s your favorite cereal? What about ice cream? (Hard to pick just 1!!)
