This WIAW is all about my eats on the (third) to last day of 2015, one I spent in Connecticut relaxing with some old friends from growing up and preparing to greet the arrival of the new year. The day kicked off with a big slice of my Pumpkin Apple Spice Loaf, made with a little less flour and a little extra coconut oil for an especially moist and doughy treat. I had it with a yogurt with peanut butter and blueberries and a mug of decaf coffee, as well as half an apple.
I met one of my good friends from growing up for an early lunch. We decided on Bareburger, which I went to for the first time on my friend Kaitlin’s birthday back in the spring and has been pretty good for me each time I’ve gone since. They have a lot of options for the gluten, grain, or dairy free eater, and the sweet potato fries are amazing. This time around I had a turkey burger with Gouda and pickled red onions in a collard greens wrap with some of those fries. A lot more than made it into the photo 🙂
I wasn’t super hungry and thought I might make it through the day for the first time in I don’t know how long without going for an afternoon snack, but I couldn’t last until dinner after all, so had some carrots and cucumbers and a few slices of olive oil Asiago cheese.
Dinner was broiled mahi mahi with roasted broccoli and butternut squash. I topped everything with a sprinkle of pecorino and Parmesan cheese, as well as a little extra Asiago.
Dessert followed, vanilla ice cream with rainbow jimmies. It’s had been so warm, topping out in the mid-60s on Sunday! Now I’m drinking hot cocoa with my ice cream…
And finally, a few squares of dark chocolate from a bar I brought back home after my trip to London. It’s been in the cupboard since summer but I don’t think real dark chocolate ever goes bad. This bar didn’t, at least!
What’s your favorite kind of burger?
