It’s pumpkin time at Trader Joe’s!

Leaves changing color, school back in session, November elections just around the corner. Nothing says “It’s fall” like stores pulling out the pumpkin products!

And Trader Joe’s is no slouch in the autumn-alert area. TJ’s announces it jubilantly, and provides a tasty array of boxed, bottled and binned deliciousness:

Revolutionary concept: Breakfast for dinner

10 Sep

Today’s guest post from Sheila:

We usually make pancakes from scratch, but on my last TJ’s excursion, I picked up a box of “Multigrain Baking & Pancake Mix” at my daughter’s request. She wanted to be able to fix breakfast when her girlfriends spent the night.

This simple wonder calmed a recent “what’s for dinner” panic with a bonus: the fun of engaging in a slightly revolutionary act. You should have seen my daughter’s eyes light up when I announced we were having pancakes for dinner!

I grabbed the box from the pantry,

Trader Joe’s Baking and Pancake Mix: It’s what’s for dinner

added just two eggs and a cup of milk to the mix,

Anticipation: Cakes cooking

and we had a batch of fluffy cakes in less than 20 minutes.

Dinner is served!

Their multigrain goodness offset any guilt I felt from including bacon on the menu. In our household, everything is better with bacon, even TJ’s pancakes.

Thanks, TJs!

Thank you, Sheila!

Fear: Trader Joe’s Speculoos Cookie Butter

30 Jul

Speculoos Cookie Butter

I rounded the corner while shopping and saw the succulently stacked pyramid of Speculoos Cookie Butter.

Immediately, I had conflicting urges: full-body dive into the mound, filling my basket as I awoke from my trance swooning, or run and hide under a heavy piece of furniture, rocking back and forth, humming softly?

The possibility of pure and utter delight that might result at the first bite of something called “Cookie Butter” was almost too much to handle.

I retained my cool and calm exterior.  However, in bathing-suit weather, I put my hands on my cart and steered away from primal temptation.

Have you tried this wondrous product? What are your thoughts? Should I dare? Will I be able to resist making this 11-oz jar a one-serving container?!

Thank you for your help and insights!

Thanks for your creative creations, TJ’s. I think.
