A Favorite Coffee I’m Brewing at Home

French Market CoffeeHave you ever tried coffee with chicory? I’m a new fan.

The practice of mixing chicory with coffee has been a French tradition for centuries and is what gives New Orleans style coffee that special rich flavor.

I’ve been experimenting with new to me coffees lately, since sometimes I do my grocery shopping at Market Basket when I do my mom’s shopping at the same time.

Market Basket has a different selection of coffees than Stop & Shop, so I noticed the New Orleans’ Famous French Market brand as one to try. It’s only $4.99 at Market Basket.

Also, a random note, it’s on the top shelf, so if you’re short like me, you may have to stand on your tip-toes to reach it!

I love the flavor and have been buying it all the time now. So if you brew your coffee at home and want to try something new, I definitely recommend it.

Frozen Pizza Taste Test ~ Red Baron v. DiGiorno

DiGiorno vs Red Baron pizza taste testThe wind is blowing like a freight train outside and the snow has started falling. Inside, the heat is turned up and I am feeling nice and cozy. I finally have some time to blog and I’m listening to a Jess Lively podcast. Life is good!

I had brunch with some friends this morning and will hopefully blog it within six months. I have to stop fooling myself and pretend like I can blog like I could before. I just don’t have the time and have to accept what I can do. I have a seafood post from this summer that I still cannot believe I haven’t written yet. *sigh*

This post wasn’t even planned, but just happened. G came home with two frozen pizzas and asked if I wanted to try them. Today I’m carbo loading like a marathoner, but I’m not a marathoner. Good thing I did some walking to and from the T! Maybe I can do a yoga session today too.

Anyway, the pizzas are Red Baron and DiGiorno. Both pizzas are the same flavor, Supreme, so I removed the sausage and pepperoni. I don’t eat meat, unlike G.

Both of us had similar reactions to these pizzas. Red Baron has a nice crispy crust, but DiGiorno has a better flavor.

G asked me which one would I buy. I told him Newman’s Own. It’s the truth! He said that the others are cheaper, which may be true. But it’s only by a few dollars. I don’t buy frozen pizza very often, so when I do, I want it to be an all-around good experience.

A favorite flavor is White Thin & Crispy Pizza with spinach. I wrote about it before and how I had a “What Would You Do?” moment in the grocery store. My preference for Newman’s Own also is because I like that their profits goes to charity. It makes me feel even better about buying it.

So there you have it. Newman’s Own wins!

Pi Day: My Fridge

Fridge on Pi DayToday was Pi Day, but unfortunately I didn’t make pie. Or eat any pie. But I did think about it as I cleaned my fridge.

The pink bowl with the plate over it contains chicken broth, which I made today. Baby kale and carrots are in the bin on the right, that I plan to use to make soup tomorrow.

I had a peach and banana smoothie today for lunch. For breakfast I had French toast made with raisin bread. I had the last of a chicken and vegetable stir-fry for dinner. I was also eating it everyday for lunch this week.

It was good, but I’m glad it’s gone. Time for some new meals. Haven’t had a frittata in a while. It may go on the menu tomorrow.

What are you cooking/eating this weekend?
