Happy hump day! You know what that means right? Some WIAW action.
If you want to see some other delicious meals make sure you go check out our host, Jenn’s site today for a link up of everyone else participating. There’s some pretty tasty stuff out there.
On to my favorite meal of the day…

Breakfast! I’m not sure if it’s because of the food, the cup of coffee or the fact that I start my morning with both in front of the computer reading all my fav blogs. Actually, it’s probably all of those things combined. Smile

You know how some nights you go to bed knowing exactly what you want in the morning? This was one of those times. Ashley’s banana cornbread cake is a staple in my breakfast line up. It’s fun, delicious, nutritious and the best part…microwavable. Topped with some almond butter, jam, blueberries and maple syrup you could totally fool someone into thinking this was a “weekend” breakfast and not something you whipped up in 5 minutes.

I ran to the produce store at lunch and saw cherry tomatoes for 2 pints/$1.99. Steal! I have no idea how I remembered this, but I immediately thought of a Rachael Ray recipe for sherry roasted tomatoes that I made the first year we were married in Florida. They must’ve been pretty good if they lasted in my memory for the past 4+ years, right?

As I was putting away the groceries I saw pita bread and goat cheese and lunch was devised.

Sherry roasted tomato flat bread pizza.

One word: yum.

Two more words: make this.

Yes, I’m too lazy to stir my peanut butter properly so it looks rather unappetizing. Sorry, I’m not sorry. Winking smile

Dinner was delicious, albeit random. Wild Alaskan king salmon, (none of that nasty farm raised crap over here! It’s worth the extra $ for the good stuff) more tomatoes, some garlic sautéed spinach and a wheatberry + green onion + feta salad I made yesterday because I was sick of looking at the plastic bag of 1/2 cup of wheatberries left in my pantry.

Of course no day is complete without dessert, right? Yesterday happened to be one of these, which you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for the recipe. <Insert evil cackle here>

Any guesses? I’ll give you a hint…a can of Libby’s was hurt in the making of them.

If you can’t take the suspense, go check out these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies or these pumpkin brownies. They’re pretty good substitutes. Winking smile

 

Roasted Sherry Tomato

Flat Bread Pizza

Inspired by Rachael Ray’s sherry cherry tomatoes

Yield: 1 serving (1 pizza), with leftover tomatoes for another 2 side dish servings.

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or cooking wine
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pita bread
  • 2 tablespoons goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup baby arugula
  • salt & pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400. Heat medium skillet on medium-high heat. Add olive oil, garlic, shallots & onion and cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened. Add tomatoes and toss to coat. Add sherry, sugar & salt and toss again. Let cook down for 2-3 minutes on stove top, then transfer to oven to roast for 15 minutes. While tomatoes are roasting, toast pita. Spread goat cheese on pita while warm. Layer arugula on top of goat cheese. Once tomatoes are roasted, spoon some on top of pizza to wilt arugula. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

In honor of WIAW, what’s the best thing you ate yesterday?

    I would like to eat everything that you ate yesterday- and will definitely have to try the breakfast asap!
    I love cornbread sooo much- and am thinking that the cornbread cake could be a nice compliment to a crockpot full of pumpkin chili… (I know what I’m making this weekend!)

      Ohh, definitely! Check out Ashley’s site b/c she has a cornbread cake w/o the banana that would probably be even better with the chili combo :)

    All your eats look de-licious! And beautifully photographed, too :-) I don’t know Rachel Ray, but I tend to be less interested in the mega-stars when it comes to health and nutrition…I”m slightly worried they’ve sold out and I can’t trust them. :-)

    I have some wild Alaskan salmon in my WIAW post, too! Born and raised in BC, I can’t stand the farmed stuff. At all. I can’t believe it’s so popular here in California. Yuck! We went to Costco and bought a couple sides of wild coho, then steamed them in a foil packet on the bbq. Yummm.

    I’ve been meaning to tell you Gina that I’ve been enjoying your food photography/styling for your posted recipes. Having a few fresh ingredients in the background really does somehow make things look more enticing! Your flatbread pizza looks super-tasty, and I’m not even a huge fan of cherry tomatoes!

      Wild is the way to go. I’ve seen farmed fish areas and gross is the only word that comes to mind!
      Thanks for the photo compliments. I have a bit too much fun playing with my food ;)

    Breakfast is by far my most favorite meal of the day as well and that looks AWESOME. I think I’d say that was the best thing I ate yesterday by far.

    As for Rachael Ray…I think I tend to dislike her more than like her…but I definitely wouldn’t say I hate her.

    That brownie whatever-it-is looks fantastic. Chocolate and pumpkin are such a great combo.

    I like Rachel Ray, but the only thing that annoys me about her is when she says “EVOO” and then follows it up “extra virgin olive oil.” Why use the acronym if you’re just going to say it anyway?

    I love breakfast too! It’s definitely my favorite part of the day bc of many reasons. That flatbread pizza is making me sad that I can’t eat gluten. It looks ahhhmazing.
