WIAW: Blogging From The Train

Good morning! Linking up with Wednesday’s top woman, Jenn.

I’m Williamsburg bound and blogging from the train.  I feel all grown up, taking a cab and getting on the train all by myself. I was nervous that I’d accidentally board on the wrong platform and find myself in San Diego. My mom, upon hearing this fear last night, laughed and reminded me I had taken a train when I was five going on a family trip to Boston. At that age I was only paying attention to my parents and the next time they turned their backs I could swat my brother, so that reminder was useless, Mom.  Anyway…I felt like such a sophisticated, cool cityslicker. I imagined, as I got out of the cab and walked into the train station, that Suddenly I See by Kt Tunstall was playing. Attention, woman sitting behind me because I think there is a 1 in a million chance you’re reading this, stop kicking my seat, please and thank you. This train ride is going to take 5 more hours and the novelty of riding the train is already wearing off.

Onto the eats, typed up real quickly because typing on a train is weird. I am well aware that most of the meals here don’t look good but don’t write any of it off. It’s not the foods fault., most of this is my inability to take pictures.


I’ve been eating The Oatmeal Artists’ applesauce overnight oats for a week now. I was hesitant of how applesauce would be with oats and thought the consistency might be absolutely disgusting, but I hereby deem it a winner. Congrats, applesauce overnight oats.




Consumed: Two slices of Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel bread.

No recollection how this mess came together (maybe I was drunk after work puttering around my house? all too likely) but every day I finish the whole thing which is sadly a big accomplishment around these parts. In here we have egg whites, cilantro, corn, microwaved string cheese, spinach, rice,  feta, and roasted mushrooms. I call it a scramble because I don’t know what else to call it. Funny story about mushrooms (I start way too many sentences this way), I used to think they were disgusting until one day I was at a party, they were there, I was adventurous, tried some and now I could eat them like candy. I roast them like another great Caitlin does. Anyway…topping it is Cowboy Caviar salsa from Trader Joes- this stuff is so good and it gets an A rating in Fooducate, so basically I’m waiting for Trader Joes to approve my petition to start a fan club. I’ll keep you posted, don’t fret!!!



I was craving some chocolate and so I dug into weight watchers caramel chocolate bites. These weren’t spectacular (duh) but they satisfied my craving.




Some honey wheat braided pretzels & a granola bar. No picture but I’m sure if you think real hard and use your imagination, you can visualize this.

I’m sooooo not excited for the whole “working” part of the trip, but I’m excited to be in this historic town and socialize with ye olde colonial folk.  The spirit is willing, but the flesh will probably be weak. I just paraphrased Jesus so it’s probzzz time to end this. See ya.

  1. Mmm chicken tikka masala. And hmm, I’ll have to try out your overnight oats. Lol, hope the woman on the train stops kicking you!

  2. Haha, glad you managed to get on the right train, I assume! 🙂
    Bahaha, another awesome Caitlin! That’s how I roast all my veggies too!! There’s simply no other way to maintain the actual taste of the veggies other than simplicity like that.
    See I knew we were friends for a reason. I used to LOATHE mushroomies too… and now? Well, let’s just say you better include them where the belong because theyyy gooooooood. 🙂

  3. Ah! I’m so glad you were able to get on the right train. Wouldn’t that of made for a long day had you boarded the wrong one. Oh my! Ha Ha.

    I too used to hate mushrooms – or should I say I thought I did. I finally tried some just a few weeks ago & have been hooked soon. I think my favorite way would be in an egg omelet. However, your big bowl of goodness you had for lunch sounds quite appetizing too!

    Have a safe trip & great day
