WIAW

Monday provided much of Massachusetts with an enormous, beautiful rainbow...


I absolutely love rainbows - they are so cool! Honestly, who can be mad when looking at a rainbow? While the pictures don't do it justice, let me assure you that this double rainbow was crazy vibrant and lasted a really long time. It made my day! :)

Alrighty, onto the noms aka the best part. Here's some of my eats from the past week:


Nothing fancy here - egg whites and tomato slices, all topped with salt and black pepper. I was sadly out of avocado. :'( I wish I had an avocado tree.


I realize the skin on this chicken looks rather gross in this pic, but it tasted dece. I marinated the drumsticks in balsamic, evoo, coconut aminos, sriracha, and salt & pepper then baked it all up. Some sweet potato slices on the side and dinner was ready.


Leftover sweet potato and hard boiled eggs for an on-the-go breakfast. I hate being in such a rush in the mornings that I have to eat in my car some mornings but I make do. Gotta eat the most important meal of the day. ;)


First time Nikki's order. Just add a spoon. Ah-maze-ing!!! <3


The skin on this darn Gala apple was SO thick that I had to peel it or I'd still probably be chewing it. And its a well-known fact that apple slices because they taste way better than a whole apple.


(Although is anyone else with me in that Red Delicious apples are awful?!)


Another well known fact: crushed grapes taste better than whole grapes. And wine slush tastes better than regular wine! :)

Happy WIAW!

  1. Happy WIAW! I am with you, Red Delicious Apples are not delicious. I have never seen Nikki's Coconut butter, they look good. I also love rainbows and I have never been able to capture their true beauty in a photo. I your photo I can see that it was a double rainbow. :-)

    1. I ordered the Nikki's online because it isn't sold in stores around me - possibly a good thing or I'd go through it like water. ;)

      Thanks so much for stopping by and reading!! :)

  2. I do NOT like Red Delicious apples! I'll eat them if I'm hungry and there's nothing else available but out of a selection of apples I'd pick gala or pink lady or fuji every time!

    1. It was a great breakfast and made me wonder why I don't eat sweet pots for breaky more often! And if I could share with you, I would! :)
