    I always think frozen pizzas leave something to be desired too. Always have to add my own ingredients! They look so good on the box though πŸ™‚

    Tampa has some cool coffee houses!! I’ve always wanted to try the pizza from Publix, it looks so good. Now I have to check it out for sure…love your topping additions πŸ™‚

    I’ve never been a big fan of frozen pizzas. Like you, they always leave me wanting more and something a little extra on them.

    Your article sounds interesting, I’m going to check it out now! That pizza looks absolutely divine – and I agree…. who needs thirds when you’ve got halves!?!

    Re: “I have a rule about ordering something if I plan on taking up a seat for a good while at a coffeehouse”

    Would anyone actually go to a coffee house, sit around, and NOT order something? If you’re by yourself that’s definitely not cool.

    I used to work at a coffee shop and if anyone did that (which was rarely, and only included bored, loitering teens) we’d kick them out.

    I like iced coffee drinks like that, but they always have too much ice and not enough drink! Now I get them blended with the ice, so I don’t have that problem.

    Frozen pizzas don’t cut it for me either — they are screaming for extra toppings.

    I hate when there’s that much ice!! It’s hard to order iced coffee “light on the ice,” but whenever I order regular drinks I ask for them without it. I’m paying for the drink, not cubes!!

    Yeah, frozen pizzas are kind of stingy with toppings! Good call adding more. And 1/3 never cuts it; half or all is much more satisfying, lol.

    I would love to try that coffee shop! I’m definitely a coffee person and in-store roasting is a big plus in my eyes.

    That drink looks amazing! I worked at my university’s coffee shops while I was at school and my favorite drink was an iced caramella – espresso with caramel sauce melted in after it brewed, milk, ice, whipped cream. I got really sick of them (and had the worst caffeine withdrawl headaches when I stopped drinking them!) over the course of working there though!

    Stocked freezer is so important, it really is great to have all kinds of frozen veggies and other stuff for making quick meals.

    I always eat half a frozen pizza at a time too! Glad you’re with me on that one πŸ™‚

    We’ve lived in this house for almost 2 years and I still have so many unfinished things!

    I love how men complain about how full the fridge/freezer is, but they are more than willing to eat it all! πŸ˜›

    That drink looks so good! I love private coffee houses like that. Unfortunately, there are none like that near me. I wish there were. πŸ™‚ That pizza looks so good! I love everything that you added to it. It definitely makes it a lot prettier! πŸ™‚

    Love your coffeehouse rule about ordering something if you’re going to take up a seat. I truly hate when people just hang out, taking up space without ordering anything. It’s not a public library, after all! πŸ™‚

    Also, love the look of that iced coffee drink!

    As much as I love making homemade pizza, some Friday’s I am like “I don’t want to cook!” So our local store sells a 16 inch cheese pizza for $5 – unbaked. Then I use whatever veggies, extra cheese I have on hand to make it my own – so much better!

    We have locally-owned coffee house near us that puts way too much ice in too! But the drinks are too good to stop going πŸ™‚ I think I’d rather buy a drink and support local business than support chains that make billions of dollars every year!

    Loving the lunch!! A colorful meal is so much fun to eat (and healthy too!) πŸ˜€

    I don’t buy or eat a lot of frozen pizzas but they are great for quick meals. You’re right the recommended serving never really is enough. It looks delicious, and I loved the place setting for the day!

    Ah! I’m SO jealous you were able to find the Feta and Spinach pizza. Since I am also a marketer’s dream, I saw the ad for it and had been craving it ever since- then our Publix was sold out πŸ™ I settled for the Veggie variety, but the one you created actually looks WAY better! lol
