Is it that time of the week already? Is it really Wednesday?

It is!

That means it’s time for What I Ate Wednesday.

Except I have been so swamped with work and everything else I forgot to take any pictures of what I ate yesterday.

Hmmmmm……..

So what should we talk about? Oh, I know. I do have a few pictures after all. Monday night, after an exhausting day of work, I needed to make a quick dinner. Guess what? I did it under 30 minutes. I made a delicious creamy Potato Broccoli Cheddar Soup and a Grilled Veggie Panini.

Soup!? You may ask. She gives us soup? I know what you’re thinking. But… this simple one pot meal is sure to please the entire family and is loaded with broccoli, potatoes and cheese. Personally, I can eat soup all year round.

I also made a meatless Grilled Veggie Panini with leftover grilled zucchini, onions and eggplant topped with chardonnay Dijon mustard and creamy light havarti cheese. This Panini should not be under estimated. The meaty grilled eggplant and gooey havarti made this into one satisfying sandwich.
