First Iced Coffee of Season + Recent Meals + Pizza Superstition

I had my first iced coffee of the season. Decaf iced coffee, actually.

I’ve been drinking less coffee over the last few months and surprisingly, I don’t miss the extra cup that I cut out of my daily routine. I also don’t notice that I subbed one regular cup of coffee for decaf in the morning.

I’m now on a regular coffee routine of one cup regular, one cup decaf…and that’s it for the day.

Except of course, when I stop for iced coffee (regular or decaf) this time of year. It won’t be a daily habit.

Since using the Chopt app to order my salads, I stopped knowing exactly which ingredients are involved. I just click “reorder” each week so I’m not paying attention to remembering specifically what I am eating.

I do know, however, that roasted chickpeas and avocado are always in the mix.

La Piazza is one of my favorites pizza places because of the sauce. It’s SO good.

I still, of course, adore the whole wheat margarita pizza from Mario’s. I wonder when this phase will end, if ever.

I want to still love the whole wheat vegetable pizza from Villa Monte but I don’t think that I do. I’ve been saying this for quite a while too.

I don’t even know what it is, but it’s just not my favorite anymore. It looks so pretty though, doesn’t it? The vegetables are packed so high! You can’t even tell that there’s pizza crust under all of those vegetables!

I’ve been eating the below stir fry on repeat for dinner every single night that I make dinner at home for the last two weeks or so.

It’s just SO EASY to throw together which makes me glad that I’ve returned to being in the mood for stir fry bowls for dinner once again.

In the mix:

  • Whatever Frozen Vegetables I have in the freezer (usually broccoli, cauliflower, and/or Brussel sprouts)
  • Organic Chickpeas
  • Trader Joe’s organic brown rice (I buy the steam bags)
  • Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki
  • Trader Joe’s Sweet Chili Sauce
  • Avocado

Last but not least, I needed Chinese food for dinner the other night. Steamed vegetable dumplings are my favorite.

Oh, and it’s important to note that I will have La Piazza for dinner tonight. You see, I’m convinced that the Islanders lost (and lost big) on Monday because I didn’t have La Piazza. It’s my fault. I had La Piazza both game days during this series with Tampa when the Islanders won. I didn’t have it Monday night and they lost. I will fix that tonight.

Have I created a pizza superstition? I guess we will find out tonight! If the Islanders should win, I will have to eat La Piazza pizza every time they play for the rest of my life. Or at least, every game day during the playoffs.
