I am feeling so incredibly “bloggy” right now, as I type up this post while sitting in a cozy little corner of MochaLisa’s Caffe.
Earlier this evening, I met up with my friend Heather here for an early dinner date. I suggested MochaLisa’s for their delicious paninis and cozy atmosphere. You may remember my last visit with the “girls” or my previous two times stops in for mid-day coffee. All of my experiences have been great here, so I figured it would be a safe bet.
I started off by ordering an iced lemonade, which for some reason I never do. I guess I’ve always been too concerned over the extra calories and didn’t think it was worth it? But ohhhh man, am I glad I went for it today! I ordered the Mango Raspberry Lemonade, which was quite honestly one of the best lemonades I have had. Ever. It was light, sweet, and super summery…I can’t believe I’ve been missing out all this time!
After looking over the menu, Heather and I decided to share two different paninis, since we were both having such a hard time deciding on just one.
Panini #1 was the Bruschetta Panini, which was bruschetta spread & fresh mozzarella cheese, combined with fresh basil, on ciabatta bread. The bruschetta spread was really good, and the gooey mozzarella was definitely a welcome component to the sandwich.
Panini #2 was the Chicken & Pesto Panini, which was grilled chicken breast, roasted red peppers, provolone cheese, and spinach combined with a pesto spread on ciabatta bread. Heather and I both decided that this one was our favorite. Absolutely everything about it was just fantastic. Definitely a winner!
A bag of chips is also included when ordering a sandwich, so I picked the Sweet Maui Onion which are my favorite! I probably had about 2/3 of the bag, and am feeling absolutely stuffed after eating both my panini halves. Ughhh.
Heather and I had a great time chatting and catching up. It seemed like forever since we last got together at Jumpin’ Jacks Drive-In! I really miss getting to see this girl all the time.
Tonight the hubby has another softball game, so I’m headed over to watch that and hang with my favorite fans.
Question for the Night:
What drink just screams “summer” to you? Do you have a favorite summer time drink??
