What I Ate Wednesday ~ Food Pictures and FLASH Giveaway!!!!

The last few weeks have been full of breakfasts, lunches and dinners out and I’ve tried to capture the best of the bunch for you as well as what I’ve eaten “in house” aside from the recipes shared.

I often am asked what I eat and, let me tell you, I eat A LOT!!! Not only in frequency but in volume which amazes most people.  My sweetie pie sister had asked for my weekly foods which I emailed a few times but ran out of time and puff so here is a brief overview of some of the highlights!

 Gluten free oatmeal with apples and blueberries!

Fabulous tomato, mushroom and spinach omlette with GF toast from Del Peco

My current lunch obsession ~ McDonald’s Warm Grilled Chicken Salad.  Only on this day I deconstructed the salad by removing the chicken and having it with microwave poached apples on a Purebred Hamburger Roll

WIAW apple sandwich

And then I put the other half of the apple on the salad ~ yummy!

The BEST Salt and Pepper Squid in town at The Junction Hotel which is ALWAYS made gluten free for me if I ask.  Chef Guy is the BEST!

And this tin of Christmas Cookies is proof number 678 that I’ve become my Mother as I’ve stacked them according to shape in order to maximise the storage space.  Even OCD about Christmas Cookies (and packing the dishwasher, and the recycling, and…….)

    Mini gingerbread loaves! Everybody always devours them before I can get one, so they must be ok!
