Spicing it up: WIAW Style

It’s that time again! Smile



A slight twist to my normal peanut butter and banana on whole wheat toast.  This time … it’s peanut butter and banana on a toasted blueberry bagel thin!  Watch out, people … it’s getting crazy around here! Winking smile

Work Snacks:


That apple was the size of my head, by the way.



Leftover “Chicken Cacciatore” from dinner the night before.  Gotta say … I enjoyed the leftovers more than the actual dinner.  But more to come on that another day, when I share the recipe! Smile

After Lunch Snack:


These are probably my favorite chocolates ever.  Thanks, mom, for the awesome Christmas gift! Winking smile

Pre-workout Snack:


So I go to pretty much the coolest dentist ever.  At the end of each visit, you are given an Ottis Spunkmeyer cookie before you head out the door!  Sorry that I couldn’t show you a picture of my actual cookie … I had already eaten it by the time I got home. Winking smile



Chicken breasts, mashed sweet potatoes, and a spinach salad.

The chicken was actually a last minute decision, after receiving these in the mail:


My awesome friend, Lauren, sent me these spices as a Christmas gift!  Isn’t that an awesome present?? 

After opening the package, I changed up my dinner plans.  I just rubbed the “California Citrus Rub” on some chicken breasts, browned them in a skillet with olive oil, and then baked them at 350 degrees to finish them off.  Delicious!

And P.S. I cannot wait to try that Vanilla Bean Sugar on some French toast!  Yum!! Thumbs up

Question for ya …

Tell me something delicious that you’ve eaten today (or this week!)!

Is your dentist as cool as mine? Winking smile

Anyone gotten any early Christmas presents in the mail yet??  If so, have you opened them or waited for the “big day?”

    That vanilla bean spice would be great on french toast or oatmeal! mmmm :D
    Spices are actually a great gift that I’m sure any foodie would love to receive

    I love lindor chocolates!! So good :) . And I bet that vanilla bean spice is awesome! My dentist is pretty cool…but not as cool as yours! I love that they give you cookies even though so often dentists preach about not eating sugar haha. Sadly I haven’t gotten any Christmas presents yet, or bought any…eek I need to do a bunch of shopping when I get home!

      Well I fully plan on doing some shopping the day we meet up in Columbus! I figure you and I can grab lunch and chat, and then I’ll have the energy I need for some power shopping! ;)

    Isn’t it funny how you sometimes like leftovers more? It’s better then dreading them though, isn’t it?
    lindt chocolate are awesome! My flatmate gave me one after I made her some chocolate peanut butter. They’re so creamy! I don’t usually like milk chocolate, but I like every single lindt chocolate from white to complete dark!!

      I really like the white chocolate Lindt’s, too!!

    I would like going to the dentist a lot more if a cookie was involved! :) I should be receiving a Victoria’s Secret package in the mail today with a cardigan and top I am hoping to wear on Christmas!!

      Ooh nice! I’m always scared to buy clothes online for fear they don’t fit right … do you already know your typical size at VS?

      • Pamela

        You are exactly right! I was just on the phone with VS for an exchange. The top fits, but I have to return the cardigan for a size up. I usually don’t buy clothes online, but it was Cyber Monday so I justified my purchase. I hope the next size fits right!

          Oh yes, Cyber Monday makes any purchase seem like a good idea haha! :)

    I did get an early present!! I forget what its called but its something I can stream movies on to using hulu or netflix!! Hubby and I arent big gamers so there was no point in buying a gaming system but we really wanted netflix. My mom found us a gizmo that ONLY streams movies, music, and shows, NO games! yay!

  7. Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries

    I love that you love PB & banana on toast (or this time, a bagel!) as much as I do! So simple, yet so perfect! ;)

    I LOVE Lindor Truffles too! Have you ever tried the peanut butter kind? They’re amazing!

      Oh Ashley … I can’t even have the peanut butter Lindt’s in the house. They would be gone in 2.1 seconds!! ;)

    I’m a huge leftover lover. I really love leftover pizza in particular actually. It’s not necessarily FOOD – but I had an extremely delicious beer sampler in Boulder last night!

      It may not be “food,” but it sounds like fun!

    Those chocolates are seriously addicting. Last time I was at my mother-in-law’s house, she had them in a candy dish near the stairs, and every time I walked by them I couldn’t help but grab one!

      I know, right??? It’s so hard to eat just one!

  11. Katie

    I haven’t gotten any early Christmas presents, but I did get an early birthday present from my sister. My birthday’s not til the 22nd, but she insisted I open it right away yesterday! It was a sister ring ~ we love match sister stuff ;)

      Aww what a nice gift!

  12. Meg @ My Chocolate Covered Life

    Leftovers are almost ALWAYS better than the original dinner, in my opinion – the flavors get a chance to really marinate.

    Umm…how on earth did you find a dentist who gives out free cookies?????

      I just got lucky … reallllyyy lucky!! ;)

  13. Emily

    Your dentist rewards you with a cookie?! That’s even better than the little toys I used to get as a kid. So jealous.
    And it’s so weird how leftovers sometimes wind up being better than the original. Plus, they’re easier! :)
