When the braces came off

Wow it is already Wednesday!  For some reason this week is just flying by.  I have so much to do at work before leaving for the holidays, and I am not so sure it will be accomplished!

Peas and Crayons

But first we have to cover our weekly What I Ate Wednesday.  Cause you know that is more important that a little work at the moment, lol!!

So since this week contained a very big, happy day for me I have to share what I ate on said day.  As you should know by now the braces came off Monday.  Yes I will be talking about this all week, maybe even into next week, I mean when you wear the darn things for three years that is a big deal!

Breakfast:  acorn squash stuffed w/ground pork, pears, and almonds…..deconstructed style!  I made the stuffed squash for dinner on Sunday so opted for the leftovers for breakfast 🙂

Lunch:  blue cheese burger & fries.  Yep, totally not gluten free.  Yep, totally made me feel like crap later.  Nope, I didn’t care.  Now I am sure that you guys are probably thinking why on earth choose a burger when your braces come off?  Have you ever seen someone with braces attempt to eat a burger?  In the words of my country folk here in Louisiana – it ain’t pretty!!  I haven’t ordered and eaten a burger in a public place for three years people.  So to me this was a big deal!  Since no gluten free options are available in my area I sucked it up and dealt with the misery.  Best. Burger. Ever!!!

Dinner:  baked pork chop, roasted sweet potatoes, and a loaded salad w/ homemade balsamic vinaigrette.  So flavorful and yummy 🙂

Of course there have also been some snacking in between like whole almonds, an apple (eaten whole not sliced), and the such.  Luckily for you (and me) I do not have any photos of me eating an apple.  I am sure a huge apple stuffed in your mouth for a big bite is not the most attractive of pictures 🙂

In other big news this week look what came in the mail!  Yep, that’ right – my car title!!  I was so excited I had to photograph it.  Of course I posted this pic on instagram so if you follow me then you already know about this.  If you do not follow me……..what are you waiting for!!  I love to see everyone’s instagram pics!!
