Caught Up

I woke up feeling much better yesterday, thank you all for your kind words and well wishes. For breakfast, I had my new favorite thing, overnight oat bran. I soaked 1/3 cup oat bran in 1 cup milk and a pinch of salt overnight. When I was ready to eat, I heated it in the microwave with a sliced banana and once it was done, I stirred in ground flax seed and topped my bowl with a PB spoon. 


Work was fairly productive but I was surely happy it was Friday. I had planned to eat leftovers from Thursday but staff lunch caught my eye, instead. I had a little bit of pasta salad


a slice of vegetable pizza


and a small salad with oil and vinegar.


For lunch dessert, I had an orange.


The afternoon went by fairly quickly and I was able to get my desk all caught up. It is the best feeling to leave work on Friday with your work all done. Before I left, I had a little greek yogurt mixed with thawed berries. Look at the beautiful color!


After work, I did some grocery shopping and then headed home. Inspired by my groceries, I made black bean enchiladas. These were the best enchiladas I have ever made! Though, as I wrote and prepared the recipe, I thought I had cilantro from the grocery store and come to find out, I had picked up flat leaf parsley so I ended up using dried.  None the less, they were fantastic and will make it to the blue jar, for sure.


For dessert, I had an odd craving and I went with it. For some reason, I wanted toast with jam! So, I toasted an Arnold Sandwich thin and smeared one side with peach jam


and the other with fig jam.


Both sides were delicious but I think I really wanted grape jam which we don’t have, ironically. The dear husband and I are mildly obsessed with jams and jellies and we even have a rule about how many we can own at a time. So, not having grape is pretty funny 🙂

And another reminder for your BSI entries! Please email them to me at whatiateyesterday [at] gmail dot com before midnight tomorrow night (Sunday)!

Question: I will be taking my blog to it’s own domain soon and would like some feedback on what you would like to see more/less of. Your feedback and comments mean so much to me!

  1. Looove the massive PB spoon!! 😀

    Glad you’re feeling better!!

  2. I can never turn down pasta salad – its an absolute impossibility for me! 🙂

  3. I think I like how you are so in touch with your feelings and really make good connections to the way you are eating and how the 2 relate. You are very in touch and its so inspirational to see. I like the way you write, the simplicity and how you let the reader into your life and make yourself vulnerable. You are a true sweet heart and anybody who reads this blog can see that!!!

    ps..overnight oat bran: YOU ROCK!!

  4. I’m sorry to not be of much help but I really do like your blog Just the way it is! (haha, almost quoting mark darcy from bridget jones??? Anyone?….love that movie:P) I love how honest you always are. I think there’s struggles everyone goes through but don’t necessarily want to share, and you just seem like an open book. That fig jam is soooooo not an odd craving! Just looking at it makes me hungry so I must go! HA

  5. Your oat bran looks fabulous! A question, though…why do you soak it overnight? I find it cooks very fast on the stove top so I’m just curious as to the method? I’ve seen quite a few bloggers doing this and I’m a bit stumped! 🙂

    • Krista, I think soaking it lends to a creamier, starchier texture. It is more so with oats rather than oat bran but I still prefer to soak it overnight.

  6. I am so glad things are going better, hang in there!

  7. Beautiful eats 🙂

    I like the blog the way it is, so I say just keep it up unless there are things you want to add 🙂
