WIAW: Raspberry Edition
And now folks its time to PAR-TAY!
This week’s What I Ate Wednesday is brought to you by the letter R and the numbers 4 and 5.
R is for raspberries.
That were on sale this week: 4 packages for $5! Sometimes when I go to the grocery store I am very specific about what produce I am going to buy while other times I just write “Fruits and veggies.” This was one of the vague weeks… so raspberries it was!
A shout out to Jenn for once again hosting a great mid-week WIAW party!
I was very intrigued by Courtney’s “Ode to Buckwheat” post. I was a little nervous to venture out of my oatmeal comfort zone but I am so glad I did! Using roasted buckwheat from the bulk bins, I followed Courtney’s directions to a tee. I stirred in some cocoa powder at the end and let them sit in the fridge overnight. This morning I added PB&CO Dark Chocolate Dreams and … you guess it raspberries and a scoop of raspberry jelly! Thanks Courtney… buckwheat has a new fan.
Salad beast with mixed greens, queso fresco, bell peppers, and leftover salmon and tomatoes. I loved this combination… I can’t remember the last time I had salmon as my salad protein.
Pineapple Chobani (I’m not a big fan of raspberry yogurt… )
Raspberry green tea and … drum roll…
Raspberry white chocolate muffins! I loved the flavor combination. Stay tuned for the recipe later this week.
Greek turkey burger with spinach and feta and roasted sweet potatoes. Frozen spinach is my new favorite ingredient. I feel like I have been adding it to everything lately!
Frozen grapes. I had never frozen green grapes before because I had always heard that they were not as good as red… but I loved them! I wish I had tried freezing them earlier.
And this bad boy I found lurking in my freezer… a leftover Pumpkin Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich! I was nice and shared it with Ryan:)
Thanks to raspberries for making my day sweet.
Questions: What would you choose as your letter and number of the day?
Do you enjoy frozen grapes? Do you freeze all colors of grape?
