WIAW, It’s a New Year…

I have not done a WIAW post in a long time, so I thought I would just see what kinds of food pictures I’ve taken recently.

Could be really boring, so here goes.


The last couple of weeks seem to have had a number of these.  I love being able to pick up a bottle of wine at CVS in other states that don’t have stupid liquor laws.  We drank a little red and white while we were in Chicago for Christmas.


We found the cutest little Italian restaurant while we were in Chicago, compliments of yelp.  I had to go with the house sangria, and I was not disappointed.


My sister-in-law’s boyfriend, Ryan, told us we had to check out Potbelly Sandwich Shop before we made our way back to Oklahoma.  We waited until almost the last minute, we had lunch in the airport before we caught our flight home.  I had the Mediterranean, with hummus, feta, cucumbers, roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts.  I am only sad that we don’t have these in Oklahoma.

beer and sugar cookies

Lots of cookies were baked this year, sugar cookies go with pumpkin beer, right?  Of course they do.  Sugar cookies go with everything.

blue cheese chips

I took the girls to Blu on Friday for lunch.  We had my favorite blue cheese truffle chips, and they were big fans.  We will be going back for these.

roasted cauliflower and sweet potato soup

I have been making lots of soup lately.  It has become my favorite thing to pack for weekday lunches.  Sweet potato with roasted cauliflower and barley.  It was really good.  The recipe didn’t call for barley, but it just needed something, and it turns out that barley was just the thing.

veggie pot pie soup

Veggie pot pie soup, one of my favorites.  It’s just comfort in a bowl.

So there you have it, my most recent eats.  Or the ones that have been documented most recently.  We will see if we can get back on track with the WIAW posts in the new year.


  1. It was weird to be able to walk into any store and get liquor. In NC, we could buy wine and beer at the grocery store but not liquor.

    1. I hate our Oklahoma liquor laws! They are so silly.
