J is for Joy and WIAW

Moving along with Blogging A to Z we have come to the letter J.  I chose Joy.  For me Joy is so many things but of course, since it’s Wednesday we’re going to talk about the Joy of food and What I Ate Wednesday!  When you’re finished here, be sure to make your way to the A to Z site and Peas & Crayons to check out what’s happening there.  Thanks to Jenn as always for being our lovely WIAW hostess!!

One of my favorite food combos is Fiber One combined with Greek yogurt.  It’s a Joy for breakfast…

Or for lunch…

Speaking of Breakfast…there’s no Joy like a diner omelette…

This one was mushroom and cheese with a side order of cottage cheese in place of home fries.  So Good!!

Easter leftovers…mac n’ cheese and salad.  The Joy of the perfect combo!!

The Joy of a perfect cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee accompanied by a veggie flatbread sandwich.  Yum!!

I don’t really crave things, but I really was thinking hard about this next dish for a while and I made it with a twist.

The fixin’s…

Whole wheat pasta, olive oil, garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes, pecorino romano cheese and snow peas.  The addition of the snow peas was new and I was trying to up my veggies.  I cooked the pasta and added the snow peas with just about 3 minutes left.  Tossed everything with 2 Tbsp of olive oil, liberal sprinkling of garlic powder, crushed red pepper and the cheese.

It was So good…

I could have eaten it all over again when I was finished!

That’s the Joy of cooking for yourself…you can make what you want and adjust for the things that happen to be in your fridge or cupboard.  This was one of my favorites!

So that it’s for me today.  Remember to look for Joy in your life, especially in your food!  Go check out what’s going on at Blogging A to Z and make yourself hungry at WIAW!! Be sure to leave comments at both spots after your visit.

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!!  I’ll see you all tomorrow…”K?”

  1. “…look for joy in your life…” -> yes! i loved reading this sentence, fran! if we are aware of the little happy moments, the serendipitous happenings…there is a lot of joy to be found! and i love how your food choices are simple and tasty – we don’t need four star, expensive, gourmet meals in order to find joy in food! (cereal always brings me joy, haha!).
    k, see you tomorrow!

  2. Such a lovely reminder Fran… to look for the joy in life and not always dwell on what seems negative!

  3. Mmmmmmmmmmm. Mmmmmm. Mmmmmmmmmmm…
    That is all.

  4. Food definitely brings me joy Fran! Your pasta looks yummy. I could go for some pasta right now, actually, even if it’s still morning.

  5. I have yet to have a Dunkin Donuts coffee…and Ali and I were saying how we wanted to try it last week in NYC. Next time for sure…

  6. Your eats look really yummy – especially the omelette! I really should make them more often because they are too good 🙂

  7. I love food and I love eating and I think finding joy in that can be very good for the soul!

  8. I love cooking and making it up as you go along! I used to be afraid of that, but it’s so freeing once you get used to it. 🙂

  9. I’ve just finished a mushroom and cheese omelette (with coleslaw) and it was one of the best dinners I’d had for ages- great appetites must eat alike!
    I like the way you got your “K” in there too 🙂
