It’s been one of those weeks where it just feels like we’re going, going, going! I’m not complaining though because I do like being busy. (Well, to some degree… and then it crosses a line where I’m completely overwhelmed and I fall apart and Alex has to remind me to scale things back.) But this week has been the good kind of busy. My parents have been in town so it’s been fun catching up with them and work has been jam packed which means the days are flying by!

Anyways, it’s Wednesday, so let’s get to the food! Here’s what I ate on Monday:

breakfast of toast

We were super low on groceries so I had some toast (freezer bread is a lifesaver) with a bit of Kerrygold butter on it and a side of frozen mango. This sounds pretty random but I went through a toast + mango phase a couple of years ago and I ate it on repeat for months. I actually had a terrible habit of eating in my bed so I constantly had toast crumbs in my sheets. I had to break that habit before Alex and I got married. 😉

lunch pinto beans

The morning zoomed by and I was excited when lunch rolled around! I had some leftover pinto beans, black beans, brown rice, and salsa. Chipotle catered my brother’s birthday party last week so we’ve had quite a bit of leftovers. This was the last of them and it was delicious. I definitely added a lot of hot salsa though because my eyes were watering by the end! The tortilla chips were the baked blue corn chips from Trader Joe’s. Not quite as yummy as the fried ones but still pretty good. I also snacked on a tangerine but I forgot to snap a picture.

For dinner, my parents met us at Stuzzi. Alex and I used to go here pretty much every Monday, but our routine has been off lately so it hasn’t been a regular occurrence. My parents had never been so it was fun to bring them to our favorite pizza spot! Alex and I both went with the simple margherita pizza.  

Any explanation I give this pizza will not do it justice. I always pretend like I’m not going to eat the whole thing and then I always eat the whole thing. Oops.

I spent most of the night chatting on the porch with my parents, which was a lovely way to spend the evening. I was pretty stuffed but I managed to make room for a few pieces of dark chocolate. I can’t resist ending with something sweet!

What’s your favorite pizza topping?
