Since today’s WIAW is all about good eats, make sure to visit yesterday’s post as well if you missed it! We are talking all things chocolate and frosting and I shared my recipe for a healthy(er) dessert, Flourless Dark Chocolate Brownies w/ Triple Chocolate Greek Yogurt Frosting!
Yep…They are as delicious as they sound!!
When I decided my WIAW this week would be based on my Super Bowl Sunday eats, I wasn’t anticipating that I was documenting a game that my little family probably wishes to forget! Oops! I guess that is life though; unplanned and surprising sometimes. With that being said, I can still find the good in the day, and if part of that good were my eats, then so be it! Oh, and the other good…?
My sweet baby Teb of course!
I woke up around 7:30 and wasn’t feeling very hungry yet, so I decided to have my coffee and a light green smoothie to tide me over. Into the blender went my new favorite mix filled with coconut water, banana, frozen mango and a mix of frozen berries from Trader Joe’s, chia seeds, and plenty of spinach.
For some reason I never got hungry all morning, which is pretty out of the ordinary for me, but around 11:30 my stomach started to rumble and since lunch food didn’t sound good, I thought I would have breakfast round two instead.
This was a simple, but really satisfying bowl of oatmeal that was made with about 1/3 cup oats, 1 cup water, and was topped with a scoop of peanut butter and a special treat, Cocoa Almond Spread from Trader Joe’s.
This oatmeal literally tasted like a Reese’s cup for breakfast. It doesn’t get much better than that!
We tried to keep Tim busy all day, which was probably for the best, so we headed out to the grocery around 1:00 pm. We went to Earth Fare first to get our meat for this week’s meal plan, and we then went to Kroger to finish the rest of our list. While we were there, I had a tall latte from Starbucks to enjoy while shopping. I know a lot of people find grocery shopping stressful, but I love it! Sipping a coffee while perusing the aisles is quite relaxing! I remember when I was in college and Tim and I would go to the grocery every Sunday morning and hit up a Starbucks on the way. I think grocery shopping with him even today brings back those sweet memories and great times together! (Sorry, no picture, but I am sure we all know what a Starbucks cup looks like, ha!)
We headed over to my parents’ house for the game, and for those delicious game day eats! Don’t be fooled by the less than pretty pictures I am about to share though, the food was delish! I brought my Lightened-Up Classic Layered Taco Dip, and we ended up baking it before we put the lettuce on top. Oh. My. Goodness. I think I have found a new favorite way to serve this dish!
My mom made crockpot chili, and we also had hot dogs, bratwursts or sausages with sauerkraut and all the traditional toppings on a wheat bun. Disclaimer – Food Pictures in a dark basement are not a good idea!!
Oh, and dessert was my very favorite, freshly baked Ghiradelli brownies with homemade vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and whipped cream. Heavenly!! This picture unfortunately just doesn’t do this sweet treat justice!
After dessert, the night went just a bit downhill in my house.
Needless to say that Tebow, the brownie a la mode, the puppy commercial, and Bruno Mars were definitely the highlights of my night!
Thanks so much to Jenn for hosting the weekly link-up! Swing by her blog for even more blogger eats!
