WIAW – Where I Am / What I Ate Wednesday

      12 Comments on WIAW – Where I Am / What I Ate Wednesday

As you’re reading this, there’s probably a few different things happening:

1 – Breakfast with the roomie at our favorite little divey breakfast place – S&W Diner.  This has been our birthday place this year, but it seemed fitting for our final morning.

2 – Scurrying around trying to pack any remaining things I realize are mine (I might have been mostly packed by Saturday, but that leaves me a few days to be like “oh wait, that’s mine too!” and find it a home in some box somewhere in that…)

3 – Driving to pick up my Dad at the airport, get our rental mini van, eat a quick lunch and make sure all of my stuff can fit between both vehicles.

4 – I’m an emotional mess having a hard time keeping the tears inside…

5 – And if we’re lucky, I’m not driving through a downpour of my own tears but rather safely making our way out of California and onto the open road for a few days of travel.

But while I’m busy driving, you can take a look at some of what I’ve been eating these last few days – can we tell I’m playing the finish what’s in the fridge/pantry game?


Whole wheat English muffin with peanut butter and mashed banana with some iced coffee and almond milk.  A classic.


Some 2% Chobani mango with diced up nectarine and almond granola – with a pretty presentation.


I made one final batch of my Pesto Couscous salad to use the remaining ingredients in my pantry.  Just as good as it was before.

As a reminder, I don’t take a picture of everything I eat in a day, but I would like to share that I tried my first Boba tea this week while meeting a friend for a goodbye.  I got a chai spiced boba with almond milk – YUM!

And there was a lot of protein muffin consumption this week.  I mean when you make Chocolate Banana and Chocolate Pumpkin protein muffins that are amazing, you just can’t help yourself!

What new things have you tried this week?

      YUM! I love sundried tomatoes but often forget how much when I’m planning my meals or at the grocery store.

    1. I am definitely going to add that couscous salad to my reperatoire since I am obsessed with chickpeas and have a ton of pesto waiting for me in my fridge in B’more (I think?). Might add some feta to it though.

    2. I know your iced coffee was Starbucks but I am in such coffee withdrawal mode that even that almost looks good and definitely reminded me of the real good stuff. Yikes.

    3. Safe travels

      1 – You should! It’s easy and delicious!
      2 – It’s just in a reusable starbucks cup but it’s actually trader joe’s coffee. 😉
      3 – THANK YOU!

    I’ve never heard of your dinner combo before. Sounds delicious though.

    Sadly, I haven’t tried anything new this week :-X.

      You know, I’m more of a warm coffee girl too but after I was in NYC and Boston earlier this summer, I haven’t really wanted anything other than iced coffee.
