Good Morning! I can’t believe it is July 1st. Is it just me or did June fly by? Happy Canada Day to my friends back in Canada today! I am starting to search for my next travel nurse job as I only have another month left at my current one. I am eyeing Southern California right now but am browsing tempting locations nationwide. Seeing as it is Wednesday it is time for another WIAW thanks to Jenn and friends.
I am switching things up on the breakfast front here this week. The other day I was in Sprouts and spotted these purple corn tortillas. I usually don’t buy them as I find they are too large in size but these ones were small and the color was intriguing. I microwaved some egg and topped it with salsa which was good but resulted in a bit juicier wrap/fold than I had wanted. Oh well it still tasted good. I enjoyed some great cherries and coffee along side as well.
Mid morning I had a couple of rice cakes with Nuttzo and raisins. I remember making ‘ants on a log’ as a kid (celery, with peanut butter, and raisins) and upon seeing the bag in the pantry decided to throw some on the cake. It was a great decision.
Lunch was a cold veggies that I had in the fridge. I had some leftover veggies from dinner and put them in a container with some orange vinaigrette and pepper to marinate them. It could have used a tad more vinegar to enhance the flavor but was a good use up. I got the idea after seeing this recent recipe from the Whole Foods weekly email. I also toasted up an english muffin and topped it with Nuttzo.
Mid afternoon repeat snack of my rice cake combo but added a can of La Croix. Love that bubbly drink.
Dinner was a home run today. With an upcoming move happening I need to start to use up some of the items in my freezer I cooked my first piece of cod from the Sizzlefish order that I placed a few weeks ago. I thawed the fish and cooked it in the oven after seasoning it with a chipotle blend. I then added it to a couple more of those tortillas. I was going to add some lettuce to them but the tortilla was so small that I thought it would burst. Instead I enjoyed a salad on the side. I also enjoyed a cold beer because tacos and beer seem like the perfect combo to me.
I some air popped popcorn which I added some siriacha sauce and mixed it through to give a bit of bite to the snack. Snacking on it while on the computer, and on a white couch though was a not a good idea. Moments after taking this photo the cushion covers were in the wash. Oops 🙂
Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th! I’ll be working but hope you all enjoy some great time with family and friends….and some great food too!
