Wednesday, already?!

Is it really Wednesday, already?  It feels like Monday.  This month is going by way too quickly!  I can’t believe we are already a month into the new year.  Ack!

So today is WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) time, hosted by the lovely Jen@PeasandCrayons!

It’s been a week of kitchen creations around here!  I’ve made bread twice, tried my hand at my first Indian curry dish, simmered some meatballs in a red wine sauce, and came up with a GF Pizghetti bake that got thumbs up from all the men in the house.

My day started off with the normal…coffee with a good dose of creamer and a packet of truvia.  (I’m rarely awake enough for a picture.)

I wasn’t feeling very hungry so I just had a small slice of my homemade bread with a shmeer of butter.

Lunch was some leftover meatballs from the night before.  (I totally didn’t take a picture!)  I’m a bad WIAW blogger!!

I’ve been craving a sweet treat lately and these sure have been hitting the spot:

Yum!

Yum!

Ok, I admit I’ve had a few of these too!

Dinner tonight was my first try at Indian food…a Chicken Tikka Masala.  Spice, spice, and more spice!  This thang had some tang.  It was good over some white rice.  I will be playing around with this one to get it just right.  (I admit I didn’t follow the recipe to the letter…I rarely do.)  Everyone ate it and HB went back for seconds so it’s definitely a keeper.

I’ve also been snacking on these chex mixes that I made this past week.  I promised to share so the recipes are attached!

This Protein Mocha PB Chex is my original Protein PB2 Choco Chow Mix with a little coffee flavoring.  The coffee brings out the richness of the chocolate in a slightly intense, deep way.

This little number, Protein Churro Chex, was inspired from a Pinterest recipe I saw recently.  Upon further looking at the recipe I decided to cut the cinnamon chips and sugars in half and added some protein powder.  Less sugar, more protein with all the flavor!  A win-win.  HB said it tasted like Cinnamon Toast Crunch but better.  (You can add in 1 1/2 c more chips, 1/4 c sugar, and/or 1/4 c powdered sugar but I really don’t think it’s necessary!)

Well, there you have it!   My eats and treats.  Hope you’re having a wickedly wonderful Wednesday!

Do you always follow a recipe to the letter or do you like to add things here and there?
