WIAW: Memorial Day Weekend

Happy Wednesday! This What I Ate Wednesday is going to be a hodge podge of my eats from the weekend, so be prepared for little to no continuity.  I ate more random foods this weekend and loved every second of it.  It’s not every day that you get farm fresh pork and chicken to devour!

If you are not familiar with What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Jenn’s blog to check it out.  I like it as a way to get inspiration for meals and see what unique food combinations I may be missing out on.  Thanks Jenn!

Breakfast

In a (somewhat) atypical move, I did not have scrambled eggs and mushrooms every morning for breakfast this weekend.  We went to IHOP on Saturday where I had an OMELET with eggs and mushrooms (and onions, spinach, peppers, and tomatoes).

Lunch

Here are two random lunches: one from Wegmans and one from my chaotic chopping and compiling of random vegetables.

Wegmans: mixed greens, asparagus, zucchini w/ BASIL and tomato, mushrooms, some kind of quinoa/kale cake.  It was pretty awesome.

My compilation: mixed greens, onion, tomato, kabocha squash, cabbage, carrots

Dinners

Friday night Neil and I went to dinner with my dad who is in the process of moving from MO to here.  We ate at Doner Bistro and it was delicious as always.  A doner is similar to shawarma or a gyro.  Check out the site for more info.  Here is their trademark Doner:

Sunday was the cookout at the farm and I had all of this to choose from:

I made sure to have some grilled chicken, pork, fish, my cabbage creation (below), and blueberry crisp.  I may have left something out since I went up about 3 or 4 times for different courses.  Delicious!

Snacks

I didn’t know where to put these, but I had pictures of them on my phone so here are some smoothies I had this weekend (plus essential espresso)

Well that’s it for the weekend and some awesome eats.  What a great food weekend!
