WIAW - Jambalaya

 Happy Wednesday and Happy Leap Day! I really enjoy this extra day in February because it is an extra day to run.  It is another week and another round of What I ate Wednesday hosted by Peas and Crayons.




I have been slacking on taking pictures of my food and I have been not eating as many veggies as I should.  I mostly enjoy sharing my "What I are for Dinner" eats because most of the time I am trying out new recipes!  This past Sunday was no exception.


Breakfast: Chocolate Chip pancakes and three glasses of coffee
Lunch: Leftover Stuffed shells with Italian bread
Snack: Peanut Butter cookie dough and peach rings
Dinner: Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya - My Brother in law made this recipe over Christmas and gave us some and it was delicious!  This recipe makes a lot of Jambalaya and it does take a while (~1.5 hours) to make.  But once you are done it is so worth it.

Lately I have been feeling really bad about my consumption of cookies.  I just have been lacking serious self control when it comes to eating cookies.  It didn't help that my co-worker brought in butterscotch chip cookies on Monday too.  Must. Stop. Eating. Cookies!

I love jambalaya, yum!! We have a crock pot version that I use sometimes to save time. I hear you on the sweets-- I decided to give them up for Lent since I was having a hard time ever saying no! And so far, so good. :)

haha -- I looked as the extra day as an extra day to run too! :) Oh and that Jumbalaya looks delish! I have never made that dish before but I just might have to.

That recipe looks good! (I would have to make some modifications though since I only eat chicken and turkey).

Don't worry about the cookies, you will be alright!

Cookies are just so hard to resist! I never make or buy them because I have NO self control.
