WIAW + public holiday vibes

WIAW with a vengeance! Last week my attempts at WIAW were foiled by loadshedding and a feeling that I would essentially be spamming everyone with poorly-lit phone photos, but luckily yesterday was a public holiday so it looked a tiny bit better (but not much!), and thus I offer up my eats and treats 😀

WIAW + what I wanted to eat

You might be pulling faces at my title, but I’m linguistically challenged at the moment, working most of the day with numbers and all sorts of things, so please bear with me.

The idea behind today’s WIAW is to show what I actually ate and what I had would ideally have liked to eat. Now that I’ve got the two jobs and am working full day and then bouncing off (or dragging myself) to do some power walking with a pal after work, there isn’t much time to actually make sumptuous meals or take grand photos, so I’m pretty much stuck with what I have to eat when I’m in fact wishing I had time to make some favourites. I’m sure I’m not the only one who sits with a sad meal and thinks wistfully back to better eats. So here it is: what I had and what I wanted!

WIAW and first world problems

Today’s WIAW is a usual spread of eats, all of which I need to start revamping! I’m the sort that, once I figure out what I like, stick with it pretty much forever, but with next week looming and two jobs in one day, my time for the blog will be even less since I don’t get the “luxury” of two days off a week. First world problem of choice: being employed every day (but admittedly still for peanuts!). So now I’m going to have to rewire my timing to still bring fun new recipes but made in between loadshedding, cat shelter stuff, family duties and other things on weekends, which is usually when I kick back and have one big pajama party. Ah well, onto yesterday’s eats!

WIAW and back in the driving seat

Welcome to What I Ate (for) Wednesday! Yesterday was a bit of a scramble since it was the last of a two day course that I presented on Advanced Word Editing, so there’s little to recommend my morning meals with regard to charm, but I did make up for it with sushi at least. Anyhow, onward ho!wiawmarfigslogo

WIAW + a day of breakfasts

Ahoy! Today’s munchies are all about recovery – I only got back home Tuesday night at 22h00+ after spending an entire day at the hospital waiting to be prodded, so I only managed 100ml of apple juice and 1/2 a cup of tea before spacing out at home. I spent the whole day fantasizing about food so yesterday was all about spoiling myself (in moderation, I don’t want a repeat of last time). The best way to treat oneself, to my mind, is to dedicate the day to breakfast foods, so here’s a blast of WIAW!papayasplash Continue reading

WIAW and moving around

Today’s WIAW is actually about what I ate on Tuesday, because if you saw the fest I had yesterday your eyes would boggle, but also I like showing off my Tuesday munchies since it’s a weird half-work sort of vibe and then one gets a little bit of everything. I was helping out with Advanced Word Editing on Monday and Tuesday so it was action stations followed by some hardcore essay writing for my library science diploma, AKA a good excuse for “brain food”.wiawmarfigslogo

WIAW and back on the road (sort of)

Since yesterday was my day off I’m once again back to show what I ate yesterday on Wednesday. What was your favourite meal of the week thus far? I have or two Sachertorte Ice-cream Cones in the freezer taunting me at the moment – yum. I digress, let’s look to more recent treats!wiawmarfigslogo
