WIAW: On the Road
Before we get into all of the excitement involving WIAW, I first have to thank all of you for the wonderful replies after yesterdays post. Seriously, you guys are amazing!
Thank you x 1,000,000,000!
Today my parents, uncle, and I took a day trip into Regina, so we were all up early to be on the road for 8:00 am
Breakfast consisted off a 6 egg white omelette with mushrooms, bell peppers, and greek seasoning!
The omelette turned out perfectly and was absolutely delicious! I usually make my omelettes like this, more like a frittata, rather than an egg folded over with vegetables on the inside. Just how I prefer things I guess?
Along with my omelette creation, I had steel cut oats topped with berries
My all time favourite way to cook steel cut oats is in almond milk! The oats become so creamy and wonderful it will change your life. I promise! Try switching from cooking your oats in water to almond milk (or any milk of your choice) and you’ll never go back to water!
We were on the road at exactly 8:00 just like planned! When does that ever happen!?
I think Cuddles thought it was a bit too early, though! Lucky girl – we always come prepared and bring blankets for her
Regina is a 2 hour drive from my hometown, Yorkton, so I snacked on a chicken breast and veg along the way!
I knew I would be on the road today, so I baked chicken breasts in the oven last night They are so quick and easy; chicken breasts are definitely a go to snack of mine! Last night I chose to season mine with a combination of chili powder and no-salt lemon pepper (A combo I have never done before, but the chili powder smelt very tempting and I have a thing for lemon pepper )
Once we got to Regina, we did some stuff in the city before going out for lunch. Usually, we go to Earls or Moxie’s when we are in Regina, but this time we chose to go to a Greek restaurant called Cravings.
I ordered the grilled chicken breast entree (I seriously could never get sick of chicken breasts!)
It came with a tossed salad to start…
and I used olive oil, vinegar, and pepper as a dressing
I much prefer oil-based salad dressings than creamy ones
My entree came with a rice medley, vegetables, and garlic bread
The chicken had an awesome seasoning on it and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
The rest of my afternoon was spent with my Mom and Grandma It was a pretty perfect afternoon. I was happy to be able to spend the day with the two of them seeing as how I am heading back to London this weekend…
We obviously went to the only mall in Regina with a DAVIDsTEA to satisfy my craving
I ordered the Secret Weapon flavoured white tea which contains white tea, goji berries, almond slices, orange peel, liquorice, and cocoa nibs! So delicious! I loved the subtle nuttiness of this tea!
Check out the huge almond slices!
My afternoon snack was pretty much the exact same as my morning snack, but I had different types of veg and some almonds, too!
(more chicken! I totally forgot to take a picture of my afternoon snack until I was about to eat my very last piece of chicken, haha! So that’s all you get from me – a picture of one measly piece of chicken!)
I carried my snack throughout the mall in my trusty Lulu bag
I love recycling Lulu bags! I quite frequently use them as a lunch or snack bag, but I have been using it as a gym bag this week, too! Haha! (I really need to get myself a real gym bag…)
I’m loving the DTB Duffel
Throughout our time spent at the mall, I got tea (pictured above), a tea pot from DAVIDsTEA which was 50% off (!), and MAC studio sculpt concealer. It was a nice little shopping trip with the girls
Dinner was at Grandma’s house! I was lucky enough to cook the entire meal for my family
The menu included:
Baked salmon with montreal steak spice
Steamed green beans
Sprouted brown rice
A super healthy meal and it only took 20 minutes!
My Grandma loved the meal I made for her and the rest of my family which made me super happy. I love cooking for my family
After dinner and doing the dishes, we sat around the table and chatted I, of course, had a tea during this time I was pumped to see that my Grandma had TAZO Zen green tea in her cupboard!
After a cup of tea and some family bonding, we were on the road again for another two hours! We made it home safely and now I am home enjoying some eggies before I head to bed
Most often I have casein fudge before bedtime, but lately I have been wanting eggs Tonight I spiced them up with chili powder. Again, the chili powder just smelt so good to me.
Maybe I need to make a Mexican meal sometime soon!?
Well, I’m off to bed now to snuggle with this girl! ❤
She’s waiting for me
Do you pack snacks when you travel? Always always! I have been doing so for years! I need my snacks!
Do you love chicken breast as much as I do? I seriously don’t think I could ever get tired of eating chicken breast! Mmmmmm so good. I think I mastered the time and temp needed for baking them, too!
Do you like to cook for family and friends? I love it and I love when they request me too It kind of makes me feel like I might be good at cooking!?
