WIAW - Boring Study Day

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope everyone is having a great week - I have pretty much finished university for the semester. I had a speech yesterday - I have no idea how well I did - the entire thing is a blur. I remember my teacher calling me up to the front of the class, then speaking, then applause, and then sitting down. So I hope it went ok. Other than that, a few essays left, but they're already written. So it's great.

I am trying to write this while watching Hawaii Five-O, but I keep getting distracted. Good looking men fighting crime tends to win out over struggling what to write.

As it is Wednesday, that means it's time for the weekly foodie party - WIAW!! So here are my eats from Monday, a day I spent entirely at home, working on some assignments and worrying about my speech. As usual, a huge thanks to Jenn for hosting the party. Go check her out at Peas and Crayons.

Breakfast was simple - oatmeal with honey, granola, berries and half a banana.

Snack - some of the bar I made while I was photographing it (recipe coming soon).

Lunch - raspberry jam, ham, fontina cheese, sauteed mushrooms grilled sandwich. Sounds weird I know, but was incredibly good. Also had a baked oatmeal round with some yoghurt.

Snack - I ate some dough/bits of warm cookies as I was making cornflake biscuits (recipe coming soon). I had a total disaster in the kitchen that day - I put the cornflake biscuits, which contain choc chips on a tray with holes - obviously, though not to me at the time, the mixture and choc bits slipped through the holes, resulting in a veru burnt oven bottom, slightly undercooked biscuits and a near disaster with the smoke alarm.

I had another snack later on - a bowl of weetbix with honey (not pictured).

Dinner - Grilled pineapple and shrimp tacos (recipe soon).

Dessert - Yoghurt with a fudge ball, and some bits of the bars I was photographing earlier (unpictured).

Seems like a lot of food - I was hungry! And probably bored. I usually wouldn't eat so much, but making baked goods made me hungry.

Hope you are all having a lovely week and continue to have one!


  1. The cookies look yum.. as does the mystery bar ;o)

    Thanks for your comment on my post!

    Nice to know there's someone who understands what is going on with me :)

  2. I am sure the speech went well Bec :) The cookies look mighty tasty to me! Oh and I will be back for your recipes, they are always great

  3. Ugh I hate kitchen mishaps like that!

    Everything looks great - can't wait to see the recipes!

  4. Oh I manage to set off the smoke detector ALL of the time!
    It looks like a great day of eats though :)

  5. You must be happy to have completed your semester. Enjoy the time off... if you don't have too many assignments. Did you ace it with your speech? Yummy cookies.

  6. All of your baked treats look amazing. Freshly baked choclate chip cookies are totally worth destroying your oven and having to listen to the smoke detector ;)
