WIAW ~ Getting my seafood fix

I am getting in a little late with my WIAW today... must be a little distracted. Because my boy is home!!! Yay :)

He has been gone for 2 weeks. I have to admit... the first week was kinda nice. The house stayed clean. I got to catch up on girly TV shows and just do my own thing. The second week sucked... I think I may have had way too many one sided conversations with my cat during those final last days of loneliness :)

Another positive of having my boy back from his fishing trip is that he bought home a bazillion kilos of seafood! Prawns (shrimp), calamari, Moreton Bay bugs, fish and scallops. Let's just say I am pretty stoked about this. Anyhoo onto my eats for the day. Big thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting WIAW every single week :)

Breakfast - Scrambled 1 egg/2 egg whites with chives and parsley topped with salsa, pan fried asparagus and toasted mountain bread with hummus. This is basically my perfect breakfast! Also had my almond milk coffee on the side.

Snack 1 - Handful of marinated olives because I was getting a bit peckish for lunch (unpictured)

Lunch - The lunch has been on the blog before... Antipasto salad is just freakin' amazing - so flavoursome, fresh and darn delicious. In today's version was rocket, cheese stuffed baby peppers, sundried tomato and green olives. Forgot to add any meat/protein... whoops still tasted great.

Snack 2 - Luckily I got my protein fix in with some beloved chobani... Pineapple is probably my favourite of all that I have tried :)

Dinner - Decided to use some of my new stock of seafood for dinner. I stirfried some calamari, frozen pack of stirfry veggies with some garlic, ginger and chilli. Served with some rice, sweet chilli sauce and crushed peanuts for an awesome and healthy dinner :)

Dessert - I ended my day with a yummy bowl of chocolate protein oats and topped it with sliced banana, shredded coconut and some dark chocolate chips.

Well thats all folks :) I also want to thank everyone who left such kind, lovely words on my engagement shoot post from Monday. You guys are just sooo sweet!

  11. Yay! Seafood! That is some serious variety going on there. I bet you'll make some awesome recipes out of all of it. My favorite ways to use up seafood would be breaded calamari, fish tacos, shrimp gumbo/jambalaya/goulash (all would be good!) and grilled shrimp salads. Man, I wish I had some seafood right now!
