What We Ate Wednesday

I'm loving linking up every week for What I Ate Wednesday. It always amazes me how much of my day revolves around food every time I snap a picture of what we're eating. Since my pictures were just terrible last week I whipped out the real camera so that you would actually find our meals appealing! I hope these posts give you inspiration on what to eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, along with some new ideas for your kids. Miss A has had quite the appetite lately and I'm loving it!

Breakfast: 8:30 am

I ate: my favorite- whole wheat toast with peanut butter, bananas, honey, and granola

Miss A: toast with applesauce and banana slices

Snack: 11:00 am

We've gotten into the habit of having a snack right before nap time. Miss A will walk over to the pantry when she's ready, grab a yogurt, and wait by her high chair.

I ate: pumpkin pie yogurt with granola and chocolate chips

Miss A: two banana cookies with yogurt

This is what happens when I allow her to "feed" herself. She's insisting on being more and more independent while she eats, but of course, she hasn't gotten the hand of holding a spoon and feeding herself that well. She can manage fairly well and there are plenty of bites that make it in- but...this is what happens sometimes. Yogurt gets EVERYWHERE. And banana cookies make great dippers!

 Lunch: 12:30pm 

I ate: leftover white bean chicken chili that I made the night before with cheddar cheese and crushed tortilla chips. So good!

Miss A: ham and cheese wrap with tomato slices, which, she didn't eat, but she LOVED them a few days ago.You never know with this girl. 

Afternoon snack was on the go. We attempted to tackle some Christmas shopping but failed miserably. Why are men so hard to shop for? She ate some Mum Mum's, a granola bar, and cheerios. 

Dinner: 6:00pm

Dinner was early since I was starving and didn't take a handy dandy snack cup for me!

I ate: slow cooker ranch chicken over brown rice and roasted carrots, which I'll be adding to our dinner rotation, it was that good!

Miss A: the same, which she devoured and begged for more! I love when she's a good eater.

What good eats have you had recently?


  1. Everything looks delicious. I want to try that ranch chicken. I love crock pot cooking :)

  2. Happy WIAW! I am always looking for new ideas to feed my son (14 months). He is randomly picky too...will love something, and then next time I feed it to him, he is turned off.

  3. Love the pics! That chicken sounds good, I will have to try it. I have one good eater and one picky. Love when they will eat anything or at least try it!

  4. Slow cooker ranch chicken - yes please. Such a cutie pie. :)

  5. Your little girl is your mini me. What a little cutie pie. She's a lucky girl to have such a wonderful mom who whips up delicious meals :)

    Sorry shopping didn't go well - i thankfully was able to figure out part of my husbands gift yesterday and get it ordered. Usually it takes forever to figure out what to get him, Ha.

  6. That chicken sounds amazing!! I love that you showed your daughters food. We're still in the purée stage but I'm excited to get an idea for what's next!


Thanks for stopping by!
