#WIAW: Rustic Pasta & Cream Cheese Eggs

Pin It PIN IT!

Happy Wednesday, y’all! Before I dive into anything, I need to share a cocktail with you.

A fluffernutter martini. I made this like FOREVER ago (in December) and it was amazing. So, I made it again last week and guys? It’s just AMAZING. Really no  other words! It tastes like sweet, marshmallow, peanut butter goodness. Make it immediately.

This post may be a bit short because I have 2 recipes to make, photograph and edit and 2 crafts to assemble! This is what happens when you take a day off and you work for yourself, right? The reason I’m taking a day off this week (Friday), is I’m going to Scottsdale Arizona for my soon to be cousin’s bachelorette!

[me, the bachelorette, and my twinny!]

I’m thrilled to be able to join her for this and can’t wait to see my twinny! However, I am LESS THAN EXCITED about the flight. Some of you may know this, but I have severe flight anxiety. So, yeah, there’s that. But, I will persevere! Let’s hop right into What I Ate Wednesday!

This month, Jenn is urging us to add another cup of veggies into our eats, which is awesome and exciting, given my absurd love for vegetables. These are my delicious eats from yesterday!

Breakfast

Scrambled eggs with chives and cream cheese. Guys, I may be tardy to this party (hehehe) but cream cheese in scrambled eggs makes the fluffiest, most delicate, most delicious eggs in all the land. Next time you make scrambled eggs, ADD CREAM CHEESE. I swear, it’ll change your life.

Plus, a gallon of coffee. Clearly.

Lunch

Rustic homemade pasta with a white wine sauce. It was my first time making pasta and they came out, a little weird. However, my dear friend Jackie was sweet enough to say “not weird, rustic!” so that’s what I’m calling it now. So incredibly delicious friends, you must TRY!

Dinner

Creamy rice pilaf, aka, the best thing ever. I did Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Level 2 and, um, could barely move after it. So I wanted something easy and filling for dinner since I’m pretty sure I lost 15 pounds doing that. She’s not well in the head.

Plus, since it’s add extra veggies month, I also munched on some healthy baked sweet potato chips (they count, right?) Basically, just thinly sliced sweet potatoes, a SMALL drizzle of olive oil and some salt and pepper! So much better than any chip I’ve ever had. Simply preheat your oven to 400 degrees F, lightly grease a pan, slice, sprinkle & drizzle and bake for about 15 – 22 minutes, or until crispy!

So friends, what have you eaten lately that was DELICIOUS?

    I am making these sweet potato chips soon!  So easy, and sound great!  I am not a huge fan of eggs, but I love the idea of actually liking them.  Will have to try the cream cheese trick.
