WIAW~This Is Only A Test

This is only a test.  No, we’re not going to talk about the good old days when we had air raid drills and hid under our desks at school.  That would go too far toward talking about how old I am.  This is What I Ate Wednesday, hostessed by the lovely Jenn at Peas & Crayons and best fun you’ll find for your money out here in Blog Land.

Here is where the test part comes in. In Monday’s post, I revealed that I’m using my new camera.  I love the results I’m starting to have when I take food photos.  Only thing is, I don’t always have it with me and some of my photos are on my point and shoot, some on my DSLR. I don’t quite feel cool enough to drag it out in a restaurant, Yet!  SO  the test part comes in because I’m not sure if I can figure out how to hook up both to download the photos.  They may be a bit orderless because of this.  But, Hey…I’ve done WIAW without any photos at all, so this has to be better…somehow.

Peas and Crayons

Still don’t have much in the way of snacking, but again…hasn’t stopped me before!

I think this may work, If I don’t electrocute myself!



Cottage cheese, ground black pepper and sweet pickle relish combined on top of plain rice cakes.  One of my favorites.  Quick, easy and only 3 Points.



One of my traditionals…mixed cheese salad with balsamic vinegar from the local pizzeria.  So good, which is why I have it so often.



Breakfast out with my friends from Weight Watchers.  Egg white omelette with tomatoes, green peppers, onions and feta cheese. Sliced tomatoes on the side.  So good and a fun visit!



Side salad at lunch…It started out as Ralph’s but he didn’t want it so I took possession!



Veggie cheese steak…I have no words for how good this is!!



You know I couldn’t do a WIAW without some ice cream.  This was the very odd but incredibly delicious combo of black raspberry and key lime pie.  So Good!



Trying to be better about eating a Real breakfast.  This is egg substitute and egg whites combined with chili garlic sauce, cooked in the micro for 3 rounds of 1 minute.  Comes out perfectly.  A Gala apple for some crunch.  Very filling!



A big salad in my Big Purple Bowl makes me so happy.  Consisted of romaine, celery, green and red bell pepper, tomato, crock pot pinto beans, romano cheese and balsamic vinegar.  This was so good.  Should have added an apple, Probably will do that tonight!   😉



Yummy breakfast!  Gala apple with cinnamon, warmed in the micro for 2 minutes.  Topped with fat-free vanilla yogurt and that wonderful granola that I’m still working on!  This was really good and filling!

So as you see, I haven’t done a heck of a lot with snacking and I think it’s for the best.  Staying on track is good and snacking, even good choices sometimes lead me down the wrong path.

That’s What I Ate Wednesday for me.  Please be sure to stop over at Peas & Crayons to check out the other wonderful food that everyone is sharing and be sure to leave some comments!

Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Our grandson Patrick graduates from high school tonight…Can’t wait!!
