Food from the Day [What I Ate Wednesday]

It’s hard to believe, but this is my last “real” week of high school. Ever. It also happens to be testing week (aka test + paper in every class week), AP week #1, and final club meetings week. Oh, and I have multiple pineapples sitting on my counter just begging to be cut. Doh.

If you see me running around like my head’s cut off, now you know why. Thus this What I Ate Wednesday is going to be a little different.

Included are a few pictures of food from the day, but as you can imagine, my camera was pretty far from my mind the past few days. My AP review book (complete with kabocha stickers!), however, has been attached at my hip.

Fortunately, I did have some escape this weekend thanks to time spent in the kitchen. I not only baked some vegan macaroons (bananaroonies!) to reward myself for studying, but I also prepped a special batch of cookies for a bake sale at school.

Yesterday, the senior class organized a giant surprise birthday party for a sophomore who is currently battling with an auto-immune disease that will eventually take over her body. It was so amazing to know that we were able to give her true joy during such a challenging time. My s’mores cookies may not be able to cure her of her disease, but hopefully they helped raise some money to help fund research for others in need. Every little effort counts!

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the pick-nick lunch because I had to take a test. However, I did show my support and even dined on sweet potato fries and other roasted veggies from my packed lunch in honor of the burgers+fries outside my classroom window.

For dinner, I made my favorite sandwich (open face, of course) that I haven’t had in ages. Every time I want to make it, I either don’t have a ripe avocado or roasted kabocha squash. Seriously, why are ripe avocados so hard to find? I can never find them at their peak ripeness… except for yesterday. Perfection: achieved.

But let’s be honest; isn’t everything better with avocado? From a former self-proclaimed avocado-hater, that’s saying a lot. Heck, now I even like avocado with my chocolate!

Well, that’s about it for me. Tell me, what have you been eating this week? Do you like participating in bake sales? 

I’ll be back in a few days with the recipe for the s’mores cookies. Until then, I have some serious studying to do!

Have a lovely day!

  1. I love baking and have always wanted to do a bake sale! All of your vegan food looks awesome :-). I’m not a huge fan of avocado, but I’ve been told that I just haven’t eaten it the right way! I think your blog is convincing me that the person who told me that may be in fact, right!

  2. what’s bake sale?only once a year or this becomes your job/work for money?

  3. Your food looks yummy! So nice that you all did that for your classmate. Good luck with finals!

  4. Avocado and chocolate are wonderful together! I hope the fund raising went well, sounds like a fantastic group of kids. 🙂

  5. I always have to hunt for the perfect avocados too! I never know for sure if I picked a good one until I cut into it. Usually I buy two avocados at once just in case one is nasty inside:)
