WIAW (What My Roommate Makes Me)

Hey ya’ll! It is Wednesday. Hurray. For me, that means only class today and tomorrow. However I have the dreadful GRE at 5:30 pm tomorrow evening. Bum bum bum. I know it sucks. The things I do to achieve my dreams. On a happier and much lighter note, it is What I Ate Wednesday. YES. Thank you Jenn for giving this special day to all of us food and healthy living bloggers. I love it. For today’s WIAW post I thought I would throw an extra special twist: What my roommate makes me. I love my roommate, she is all about healthy living, so she makes some delicious food for us to enjoy.

DSC02736This past week she made enchiladas. Oh god were they good. She used corn tortillas and real Mexican cheese (although we aren’t sure how legit the cheese is because our stomachs hurt later). The sauce was the bomb though. She made it with peppers and other delicious goodness.

This is the whole plate of delicious heaven. She served the enchiladas with chopped lettuce and cherry tomatoes. Then there was a side of brown rice with tomatoes, peppers, and chiles. The rice was amazing. It was creamy, smooth, and filled with a bit of spice. I kept going back for more. Then we had some organic refried black beans on the side. I have a weakness for refried beans, soooo good.

DSC02739This is so blurry. Maybe because I was tipsy? Blame it on the alcohol, blame it on the vodka, blame it on the henney. No, but actually really. My contribution to the dinner was the margaritas. This was round two. The first ones we had were lime margaritas and these were strawberry. We like to celebrate our Thursday nights in style, even if we are just sitting at home the two of us. We are cool like that, I know you are all jealous.

DSCN0155What is this? Vegetarian heaven on a plate. It was ezekial bread topped with relish, mayonaisse, and vegetarian sloppy joe. I’ve never had a vegetarian sloppy joe, so this was something new for me. It was amazing. Maybe even better than one with actual meat it in. She served corn on the side. I was a big fan. I haven’t had corn in a while.

DSCN0154Aren’t you jealous that my roommate is better than yours? You should be because mine serves me up delicious meals like this. I gobbled it up.

DSC02497She makes the best salads. No joke. This one was spinach leaves, pine nuts, goat cheese, blueberries and topped with a blueberry dressing. Oh man, this was good. I love a nice refreshing salad, so whenever she pops one of these bad boys up I’m pretty excited.

DSC02732This is Ivy, the crazy kitten. She had managed to get into the empty alcohol bag. Maybe she wanted to booze too? Too bad you are a kitten. Underage problems. She just has a love for bags. We think she looks like a gremlin. She pops out of nowhere and jumps on everything. She is like a little ball of energy.

Hope everyone has a good humpday and WIAW!

  1. Yummmm. I LOVE enchiladas. I don’t think I ever ordered anything other than cheese enchiladas at Mexican restaurants until I was in high school. They still hold a special place in my heart, so I am *very* jealous that you have an enchilada-making chef roommate! Would she like to share her recipe? šŸ˜‰

    That salad looks amazing, too! My favorite salads always contain goat cheese! Happy almost-Friday, love! ā¤
