WIAW: Parfaits, Pumpkin, & Potatoes

Thanks for checking out my What I Ate Wednesday post.  Did you know this is the last WIAW before Christmas?  Squeeeeeee!  If you haven’t already, check out Peas & Crayons for other WIAW posts.


Breakfast: 1st Breakfast, a lil’ pb on a rice cake, 2nd Breakfast: Greek yogurt parfait with blackberries

breakfast     parfait

Lunch: Leftovers of Monday night’s dinner (it was worth repeating) with a slice of bread


Snack: Two packages arrived today.  I got a new vacuum, which is good except that now I actually have to use it, and I got a Christmas delivery of Harry & David pears.  So pretty!  I ate one with a handful of chips.  (whoops)

vacuum     pears

Dinner & Dessert: jerk turkey burgers, sweet potato “fries” and green beans, followed by a pumpkin muffin

dinner     muffin

Side Note: I had a good 3-mile run and a ballin’ leg session yesterday at the gym.  I also went for a 1-mile walk after work for fun.
Extra Side Note: The “first breakfast” and “second breakfast” labels mean a little more to me now that I’m reading The Hobbit.  Elevensies?
  • Got plans to read/watch The Hobbit?  Already seen/read it?
  • Getting excited for Christmas?  Honestly, it’s too warm here to feel like Christmas, but I’m excited to see my family soon.

  1. To be honest, that’s my favorite part about the holidays….seeing family and friends. I never thought I’d say the former, but it’s true!
    Your breakfast is the same as mine (although I add unsweetened cocoa powder and truvia to mine, for extra deliciousness!)

  2. I thought the Hobit was just a book? Clearly I am missing something.

    that jerk burger sounds so good! Need to make some more jerk seasoning and get on that!

  3. The Hobbit has been one of my favorite books since I was little, and I seriously can’t wait to see the movie. Oh, and I definitely know what you mean about not being able to get into the Christmas spirit when it’s so warm outside… I completely forgot it was close to Christmas when I was in Vegas because there was no snow on the ground.

  4. I just watched The Hobbit, and I’m hoping to read the book soon. Totally know what you mean about first and second breakfast 🙂 It just makes everything sound cooler instead of breakfast and “snack.” Haha.

  5. Mmm I LOVE Harry & David pears! Can’t beat them! My husband is so psyched to see The Hobbit… He’s a huge fan of the Lord of the Ring movies.

  6. I’ve always want to try a Harry & David pear – looks delicious! Enjoy!

  7. It’s a lot harder to be in the Christmas mood when it’s so warm out. I’m trying though! I haven’t seen The Hobbit yet, but hopefully soon!

  8. I love the first breakfast and second breakfast! I might have to start incorporating that into my daily meals since I love breakfast! It has been freezing here so I’m jealous of your warm temperatures. We don’t get snow, just freezing cold temperatures!

  9. Those turkey burgers look delicious!
