what i ate wednesday: decaf

Posted on Jan 9, 2013 in Food

Things worth noting about my WIAW eats this week: (1) no instances of a particular warm, caffeinated beverage (2) no snacks and (3) no chocolate. WHO AM I? The second two weren’t intentional, but the lack of coffee—that is. As much as I love coffee, it doesn’t love me. I need to get myself back off the juice. Onto my decaf eats…




  1. I was in a work conference call when Craig popped in and delivered me this plate of deliciousness. On a random whim, he decided to make pannukakku, a Finnish oven pancake, for breakfast. I love it when he goes all cultural on me. It was delicious. Insanely delicious. So good that I had to have two more pieces. Yum. We topped it with just a touch of (real!) maple syrup and had a clementine and some milk on the side.
  2. Lunch was a big bowl of leftover turkey wild rice soup. I made a big batch of this stuff right after Canadian Thanksgiving, froze it in flat bags and we’ve been eating on it ever since. Yum. On the side, I had a few whole wheat saltines.
  3. Dinner was almost entirely from our CSA! I love it when that happens. I roasted a whole chicken (from our CSA) and had a leg and a thigh from that (dark meat, FTW). I also roasted some Brussels sprouts (from our CSA) with pomegranate seeds. For a sweet touch, I also roasted each of us half a festival squash (CSA) topped with some butter and brown sugar. Yum. Yum. Yum.

What’s the best thing you’ve eaten so far this week?


  1. It all looks so healthy! (or wow I’ve been eating so much junk lately….)

    I’ve never heard of pannukakku before, but it sounds good. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Everything looks great, especially that soup! Happy WIAW! :-)

  3. All of your meals look great! =)
