Trader Joe’s crackers from South Pacific

31 Jul

Not from THE South Pacific,” but “South Pacific,” the musical.

They’re crunchy, they’re grainy, and they’re as big as an elephant’s eye. (Different musical. Same size.)

Another choice cracker from Trader Joe's

It’s a Trader Joe’s sing along.

Classics: Sinatra, Brautigan and Cheddar Rocket Crackers

5 Mar

Song of the day: “Fly Me to the Moon” sung by Frank Sinatra.

Book of the day: Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan.

Snack of the day: Cheddar Rocket Crackers from Trader Joe’s

It's a goldfish meet retro design situation.

It’s a goldfish-meets-retro-design moment.

Once again, Trader Joe’s gives us two treats in one box – the cute, retro look of a rocket with the delicious baked taste of tiny cheddar crackers. In my discriminating, goldfish-loving house, the box of crackers was an instant hit.

Thank you, Trader Joe’s.

Appetizing appetizer: Olive Tapenade Spread

3 Dec

Game night each month is a great way to get affirmation that one of my TJ faves is a party pleaser. Last week was a perfect example.

The main course was taken care of. So were dessert and drinks. So, I took the opportunity to offer a jar of Trader Joe’s Olive Tapenade Spread.

Addictive appetizer companions, that’s what these crunchy little rounds are.

And my friends went crazy. So did I. This is no dainty dish – there are meaty chunks of olive in this spread for the serious before-meal eater.

It's party time with tapenade, full of chunky, meaty olives.

Another hors d’oeuvres triumph!

Thank you, Trader Joe’s!

We’d love to hear your thoughts. Have you tried the tapenade? What did you think?

Bonus note: We played a game called Telestrations. It’s a bit like “telephone.” Instead of whispering to the next person, the play alternates between writing a word, drawing a representation of the word, then the next person guesses what the word was from the drawing. Here’s an example of an effective drawing:
