WIAW at Weird Times

November 23, 2011

Guys, it’s official.

I’m SO excited for Thanksgiving.  I woke up hours before my alarm went off this morning and was ready to skip into the kitchen and start cooking for tomorrow, but I forced myself to go back to sleep for a little bit instead.

One thing’s for sure.  It’s going to be one heck of a bake fest today! 

And a busy one at that, so let’s get down to business.  Happy WIAW!

Peas and Crayons

Now I’m not one to have strict meal eating time rules, but honestly, having a noon to 8 PM shift and all the weird break times that go with it, is kind of frustrating.  What meal am I supposed to be eating when I get my “lunch break” at 4 PM?!

All frustration aside, I guess sometimes you just have to make due.

I love my mom and I love when we have breakfast together, but I just don’t love Mimi’s Cafe.  My frittata was bland at best and I wish I had just eaten the whole pumpkin spice muffin instead.

And an unpictured Honeycrisp apple.

P.S. I just started Cutting for Stone and like it so far, although it’s definitely not a book you can zone out during.

Kale is the new spinach.

So good.


At 9 PM, grrrr.

Ummm, we love this recipe.

Especially when you mix in kale and peas and chickpeas.

Wait, you don’t mix beans into your pasta?



I was having a moment with the last chocolate chip oatmeal cookie and didn’t even think to take a picture.

And then I whined for the rest of the night about how I wanted another cookie.

P.S. Why do these cookies always turn out better when my mom makes them?!  Thanks for sharing your batch, Mom 🙂

I’m off for a run, then it’s time to get busy in the kitchen!

Thanks to Jenn of Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW party — feel free to drop by her blog for more foodgawking.


Do you ever have to eat at weird times because of a work/school/etc. schedule?

What’s your favorite type of cookie?

    i COMPLETELY agree about Mimi’s Cafe. i have tried several times to go and enjoy it – but it isn’t good. period.

    Over the summer I had my “lunch break” from 1020-11, then didn’t have another break until 2. It was the weirdest time to be eating salads or leftover pasta.
    Have a great Thanksgiving!

    Eating dinner late also really pisses me off. That cornbread crust looks delish! What a nice change from the traditional pastry crust.
