Another week, another What I Ate Wednesday. This week, I’m linking up with Jenn and friends to share some of my eats from this week. It’s gonna be a short one, because I’ve, once again, fallen out of the habit of taking food pics. So to make up for the lack of dinner pic, I’m sharing a recipe for these Fruit & Rosemary Popsicles that I’ve been enjoying almost everyday since I make them last week.
But first, the food:
I had an appointment in Kitchener on Saturday morning and since it’s about an hour away from my house by bus, I had to wake up a little earlier than I’m used to. I wasn’t too torn up about it though, because it gave me a chance to try my hand at making overnight oats. As much as I love oats, I have ever made overnight oats before, firstly because I haven’t always been a fan of chia seeds, and secondly, because I’m forgetful as eff, and I never remember to actually set up the oats the night before.
Since I planned to be out for most of the day, I packed snacks to take with me. First up was more homemade granola that was left over from my trip to Guelph last week. I also walked with some Beanito’s chips. I’m not usually a savoury snack person, but these are seriously the bomb dot com. And last, but not least, were some Hemp Heart Bites, which are seriously the perfect on the go snack. (side note: today’s the last day to enter my Hemp Heart Bites giveaway, so be sure to enter here if you haven’t already!)
Since I was in Kitchener, I decided to check out King StrEATery, which is a Food Truck Festival in downtown Kitchener. I didn’t actually get anything to eat since everything I wanted had cheese or some other form of dairy, but I did manage to get a shot of the coolest dragon sand sculpture. Definitely a worthy replacement for a food pic.
Fruit & Rosemary Popsicles Recipe
The rest of Saturday was a bit of a blur. I don’t actually remember what I had for lunch or dinner, but I think it may have involved tilapia for lunch and ground beef for dinner. But don’t hold me to it. What I do remember, was that the fruit & rosemary popsicles I’d put in the freezer the night before were finally ready, so I had a popsicle (or five) to cool down after a long day in the sun.
- 1½ cups watermelon, cubed
- ½ cup strawberries, washed and hulled
- a sprig of rosemary
- Optional: ½ tsp maple syrup
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth
- Pour liquid into a clean ice cube tray and cover tightly with plastic wrap
- Pierce the plastic wrap over the middle of each cube with a toothpick, ensuring the the plastic wrap remains taught to the toothpick stays in place
- Freeze popsicles overnight, or for at least 4 hours, until solid
- Run the back of the ice cube tray under hot water before trying to remove the popsicles and devouring
- If you manage to have any left, keep stored in the freezer
