Usual Foods + Pizza + Fruit in the House

Let’s see, let’s see…what have I been eating. Um, a whole lot of the same foods as usual. I mean really, does anyone truly vary their diet that often? Sometimes I feel the need for something different but overall, I gravitate towards the same rotation of foods on a regular basis. Actually, I bought some Trader Joe’s avocado tzatziki dip? Is that what it’s called? I don’t think I would buy it again but it was good in terms of being something different from what I usually buy at Trader Joe’s.  

I had this chopped vegetable salad at Fanatico recently. It doesn’t look as picturesque as usual, and it even appears small in the picture. It was not small and was as delicious as ever. It’s worth noting that I devoured the bread basket with olive oil during this particular dinner. Not sure why but I just needed the bread on a really large-scale on this day.

I’ve flopped around between the salads I order at The Cheesecake Factory lately but went back to my tried and true order of the Barbecue Ranch Salad. (Always ordered without the chicken, because I eat an almost exclusive vegetarian diet aside from the rare time I eat sushi).

Pizza is still at the top of my list for dinner. In fact, last week I had pizza for dinner three nights in a row. One night was the whole wheat margarita pizza from Mario’s.

Two nights in a row was the whole wheat vegetable slice from Monte. One night I brought it home after food shopping and the second night, my son drove us to Monte on the way to his SAT Tutor session. We will not discuss his driving or my lack of ability to have the proper level of patience and balanced emotions to handle being the passenger in the car while my son is driving on a regular basis.

Instead, we can chat about my slice of pizza. Although, I don’t have much to say about the whole wheat veggie pizza because I’ve written about it so many times already. It’s a good choice, and satisfying, giving you a nice serving of vegetables. It’s not my favorite though, the Mario’s whole wheat margarita slice is at the top of my list.

The spring-like weather inspired my desire to have a big bowl of fruit in the house. We call this my overpriced fruit bowl.

Hey, if you aren’t going to cut up the fruit yourself (which I am not), what do you expect to pay?  Cut up fruit is just not cheap but it’s the price you pay when you want the work done for you. And that’s what I want, at least right now. I just cannot do not want to be lugging melons through the store, to the car, to the house, to then cut up. Can’t Won’t do it. Not in the mood.

But at least we have fruit in the house. 🙂
