Completely worth spoiling my lunch.

Hey gang!  How’s the week treating everyone?

Mine is great, except for one thing:

Was I the only one to miss the memo that The Bachelorette started at 9:30 on Monday? Annoyed

Come on, ABC, don’t you know that some of us are asleep by 9:30?? 

(And by “some of us,” I mean myself and every woman over the age of 80 … Angel)

———

Breakfast:

009-1500

I actually remembered to photograph my breakfast on Sunday.  A warm waffle with peanut butter, banana, and sugar-free syrup.  Yum!

After Church Snack:

On Sunday at church, the teenagers were selling popsicles to help fund their summer camp.

010-1500

But these weren’t just ordinary popsicles.  They were King of Pops popsicles!  King of Pops is an Atlanta food truck that sells gourmet popsicles.  I’ve been wanting to try one of their frozen treats for a while now … and what better time than when the proceeds will be going to such a good cause?!

011-1500

I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I chose the Chocolate-Sea Salt flavor.  It tasted like a slightly salty Fudgsicle, and it was incredible.  Completely worth spoiling my lunch over. Winking smile

Lunch:

vegetarian chili (2)

Leftover vegetarian chili.  I had frozen a couple of containers when I made it, because I knew it would come in handy in the following weeks!

Snack:

003-1500

Apple slices sprinkled with cinnamon, microwaved for 25 seconds, and then topped with organic vanilla yogurt.

Snack #2:

001-1500

A little spicy guacamole from Whole Foods +

002-1500

these delicious chips (also from Whole Foods).  Brandon was a big fan of these chips, as well!

Dinner:

008-1500

Spinach salad +

009-1500

a microwaved sweet potato topped with guacamole and salsa.  Served with a side of kale chips

(The idea for topping a sweet potato with guacamole and salsa came from the amazing Jen.  Love her and her genius ideas! Red heart)

One more thing!  You guys remember how my friend Jen shared a post about baking bread a while ago?

Well now she’s talking about how to make homemade butter!!  You gotta check it out by clicking on the link!  Yum!!

Question for ya …

Anyone watch The Bachelorette on Monday?  If so, don’t tell me specifics because I want to watch it online!  But what were your general thoughts?

Best thing you’ve eaten this week?

Which King of Pops flavor would you have selected?

Ever made your own butter??

    (I’m in bed WAAAAAY earlier than 9:30! ;) )

    And the best thing I’ve eaten so far this week was on mothers day. Smoked Filet Mignon, grilled potatoes, and fresh green beans!

    And in kindergarten we made homemade butter!!

    • notsodomesticated

      No way! I figured you’d be a night owl!! What time do you go to bed??

      • Adriana Contreras

        The latest I stay up during the week is 10pm on Thursdays because Grey’s Anatomy is on! Lol. Weekends, I’m usually in bed by 11. I embrace my grandma-ness!

        • notsodomesticated

          You and me both, girl!! :)

  2. Tessa @ Amazing Asset

    I agree, that was an absurd time to have it on… I actually had to record it and watched it the next day, it’s just too late to get involved in something as important as that bachlorette ;) Seriously though!
    For some reason I never top my sweet potatoes with guac, hoookay that needs to happen now

  3. Avery @ YoungAspirations

    No way! It started at 9:30!? I totally got home around that time and looked at the clock and thought, oh well! I’ll watch it online! They are so bad at announcing these things. I can’t wait for this season! :) Ps — that sweet potato looks awe.some. I’ll have to try that!

    • notsodomesticated

      The sweet potato is so good! My husband thinks I’m nuts, but it’s delicious!

  4. amy @ fearless homemaker

    those popsicles look great! we have a gourmet popsicle store in nashville (las paletas) + it’s one of my favorite summertime spots to visit. as for the best thing i’ve eaten so far this week? i just had a breakfast smoothie with local strawberries, coconut water, banana, yogurt + oats that was absolutely delicious!

    I need to try salsa on sweet potatoes, that looks great. This is my first season of the bachelorette (a friend convinced me to watch), but I think it’s going to be a good season. Emily is adorable!

  7. Jana @ Newly Wife Healthy Life

    I would have definitely went for the chocolate sea-salt Popsicle too! I couldn’t stay up and watch the bachelorette either (way past my bedtime! Lol), but have it on my DVR. I watched about 30 minutes of it last night DVD hope to finish the rest today!

  9. Theresa

    ohhh girl, dont worry, my bedtime is grandma time too ;)

    i never thought of topping a sweet potato with guac, how interesting!! i’ll need to give it a whirl!

    in 4th grade my teacher did a project with us in which we churned our own butter in class..it was pretty cool and completely yum! and really easy actually!

      Why didn’t I get to churn butter in elementary school?? I’m so jealous! What a fun project!

  10. Yellow Haired Girl

    I watched it! It was good. I’m glad it’s cheesiness/trashiness is back in all of our lives :) Love the idea of guac and salsa on the sweet potato!

      Oh I’m so with you … it’s completely cheesy, and yet I can’t stop watching!

    I totally forgot that it was on too!! I did catch it but it was a total surprise!

    I would have chosen the chocolate!!

      Aww thanks, Andrea! I love how excited I am to eat my popsicle … I’m such a nerd!

  13. Emily @ Perfection Isn't Happy

    I watched The Bachelorette on Monday. I like Emily, but I thought that the episode was kind of boring. I’m sure it will pick up once they start going on dates! I just hope she doesn’t get hurt. She’s so sweet, and it makes me nervous that she’s putting herself through this again!

  14. Kristi @ Sweetly Fit

    I watched the Bachelorette….love Emily! Several of the guys have caught my eye so I’m already totally into it this season. I was so-so about the last season so now I’m really excited!
    Kristi @ Sweetly Fit recently posted..WIAWMy Profile

    • notsodomesticated

      My friend Julie has already been texting me about the dirt she’s found on the guys from The Bachelorette! I guess the guy who got the first impression rose has been arrested several times?!?!

      • Kristi @ Sweetly Fit

        Oh you’ve got to be kidding me! I really liked him and he seemed like the sweetest guy. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s not true!

  15. MassachusEATS

    I’ve heard of the King of Pops but haven’t made it there yet to try em out! The Green Apple Lemonade one sounds like it’d be tart but good!
    MassachusEATS recently posted..WIAW #15My Profile

    • notsodomesticated

      That one sounded really yummy to me, too!

  16. Cinnamon @ eatpraytri

    I try not to watch the Bachelor/ette shows b/c the second I watch ONE I am sucked in and hooked to watch all of them. SO I try my best to avoid so I don’t get crazy/obsessed/addicted! LOL
    I would totes choose the same pop as you did and now that I am thinking about it, I really am craving one! How is it you can crave something you have never had? Weird!
    I think I need to get on the sweet potato bandwagon. I have it in my head that I don’t like them, but I cant remember when the last time was that I tried one… hmmmmmm

    • notsodomesticated

      Oh just try them again, girl! If you don’t like them, you’re only out like $1. No biggie! But I think you’ll like them!

  17. natalie @ southern fit foodie

    I definitely would’ve gone with the chocolate sea salt flavor! There is a place in Nashville that sells gourmet Mexican popsicles and they are to die for (it’s called Las Paletas). My favorite is chocolate chili pepper.

    I think the best thing I’ve eaten this week (besides Mother’s Day sushi) was the pizza I made last night. It hit the spot.

    I’ve made compound butters, but that’s definitely not like making real butter haha. Thanks for sharing the link!

      Chocolate chili pepper?? Yes please!!

  18. Lindsay @ In Sweetness and In Health

    I didn’t watch the bachelorette, but 9:30 is such a random time for it! I need to try microwaving apple slices…that sounds tasty!! I think the best thing I’ve eaten this week was the salmon caesar salad I had on Sunday- so delicious!

    That picture of you with the fudge pop is priceless! love it haha :)

    Best thing I’ve eaten this week…thats tough. I do love my combination of a bagel, peanut butter and a cinnamon egg!

    • notsodomesticated

      A cinnamon egg? I need more details please!! :)

    I totally skipped watching it Monday night and it was even filmed in Charlotte! I caught up with it the next day, though :) I hope it starts earlier for the remaining episodes!

    Bachelorette was okay, she seems a bit boring so hopefully the season isn’t that way too!

      I think she was super nervous, too. Everyone always says they’re nervous, but she seriously seemed incredibly nervous!

  26. Sunnie (moderngirlnutrition.wordpress)

    Sweet potato+ guacamole combo is the best! The blue corn chips sound delicious too

    Is that really all the food that you eat?!! That is a teeny bowl of chili. I hope you eat more than this!

    • notsodomesticated

      No, I never show exactly what I eat … that would look silly. I went back for two more bowls of chili, to start. But having three pictures of bowls of chili wouldn’t be very interesting. :) I try not to count calories, but when I was counting calories, I typically ate between 1800-2200 calories a day.

      • Marissa Elliot

        Okay, that is good to know. I was going to say! It looked like such a teeny amount of food. I think with a post title of “what I ate Wednesday” it is misleading, because that’s really not enough food! Glad to hear you aren’t counting calories anymore. I stopped this as well. It is so freeing! :)

        • notsodomesticated

          Are you familiar with Jen at Peas & Crayons? “What I Ate Wednesday” is something that she has started … basically everyone shares their eats on their weekly Wednesday posts, and then we link up to her website. I think it’s just an opportunity to share recipe ideas and product reviews … I don’t think anyone actually shows every bite that entered their mouths. :)

          Have a great weekend, Marissa! Thanks for commenting!
