What I Ate Wednesday

This What I Ate Wednesday, I'm starting with a look back to Sunday. The husband and I went to the One of a Kind Show and then out to dinner at Sadie's Diner. It's so nice to be out and about now that the weather is above zero and the snow is melted! (Well, it has melted downtown anyway! There is lots of snow left on suburban lawns!)

I thought I ordered a tofu club sandwich at Sadie's, but I must have accidentally said BLT, because that's what I got. The waitress kindly offered to have some tofu prepared for me to add to my sandwich. I was so hungry that I ate a bunch of the French fries before I took this picture.

We enjoyed some Boylan Bottling Co natural sodas with our dinners. I had the cherry cola. I have loved cherry-flavoured colas for as long as I can remember.

I also couldn't resist the dessert menu. Strawberry pie? Yes, please! My husband wanted to order one piece to share, but I told him he was welcome to order pie and ice cream for himself if he wanted it.

Another night's meal was vegan chili with guacamole and garlic bread made with naan.

On Monday night, while I was out grocery shopping, my husband rolled up a bunch of vegan sushi. He filled the rolls with various veggies, such as carrots, cucumber, mushrooms and beets. He also put vegan nuggets inside a few of them.

Now for my Tuesday eats. I rarely make an actual breakfast that requires effort on a weekday, but, it being spring and all, I decided to give it a try. I made myself a tofu omelet filled with baby bella mushrooms, spinach and Daiya vegan cheddar shreds. It was a very nice change of pace!

For lunch, I had leftover sushi (the five rolls that the family left me after they packed their lunches) and leftover miso soup. My husband had made the miso soup to go along with the sushi. It was quite delicious, packed with tofu, mushrooms and rice noodles.

In the afternoon, I snacked along with the kids after school. We had orange wedges, strawberries and quinoa cookies.

I had opened a can of refried beans and a box of taco shells the day before, so I thought we should have a Taco Tuesday dinner to use up the taco shells before they got stale. I laid out a bunch of fixings - lettuce, guacamole, salsa, cheese and fried mushrooms.

It made for a lovely, simple and quick meal - perfect for a busy weeknight!

If you are feeling in the mood for a sweet, I recently posted this recipe for Quick Vegan Spelt Cinnamon Rolls with Icing. They should cure your sweet tooth...for a day or so!

My New Favourite Vegan Cookbooks

Be sure to enter my giveaway for a copy of the delightful Rawsome Vegan Baking. And while you're at it, why not read my review of the amazing Oh She Glows Cookbook too?

Linking up to:


  1. Looks very healthy and delicious too, especially the omelette. Usually I can't be bothered using effort to make a breakfast, I'm always having smoothies but when I do something with effort I always say I'm going to take more time to make that kind of breakfast. But I never do, probably because I'm the only one who eats it so it's easier to just have that smoothie!

    1. Half the time I can't even be bothered making a smoothie, so you are ahead of me! :)

  2. So many yummies! Taco night is always a fave 'round here (so is make your own pizza night-- pretty much make your own anything is a good idea). The last of the snow melted 'round here and it is actually looking spring-ish, though we don't want to curse it by talking about it much lol!

    1. Great idea - we should soon have a make your own pizza night again! I agree, getting everybody to make their own is the best!

      Glad your snow is gone finally!! :)

  3. As always, I'm now starving after seeing your weekly food! Your husband is so great at his rolling! Has he considered opening a vegan sushi restaurant? ;)

    1. He is indeed becoming an expert sushi roller. I will pass along your restaurant idea. ;)

  4. That was so nice of your husband to make sushi! I know I have been craving it! And I have been considering making it myself, hoping it is cheaper lol

    1. It can become an expensive addiction, going to restaurants all the time and such. ;)
