Weekly photo challenge: A change for the butter

15 Apr

Sometimes change comes in big ways, like new life and saying goodbye. And other times, change comes in perspective – seeing the same thing in a different way.

Trader Joe’s keeps morphing the Speculoos Butter formula into different shapes, sizes and textures. And my taste buds conclude that they’re all delicious.

Foraging nuts for the winter at Trader Joe’s: Mesquite Smoked Almonds

8 Oct

What’s your favorite sign that autumn is here? The urge to make hot chocolate? Raking leaves from the yard? Wearing sweaters again?

For me, it’s the smokey smell of fireplaces consuming wood. The first neighbor lighting up lets me know that it’s certifiably time to pack up the summer frocks and get ready to enjoy the pleasures that come with a chill in the air. It’s the red flag dropped that announces, “Autumn is on!”

That’s a big reason why seeing this bag of smokey, salted almonds lured me to buy it. It was like the siren call of Fall, with a Southwestern twist. “Mesqueeet….Messs….KEEEEETTTTT!!!” the packaging sings.

The almonds are great party nibbles, but don’t fool yourself. If you buy a bag 24 hours or more before delivering them to an event, they won’t make it. It’s one of those two-bag purchases – one for the group, and one for solo snacking. Just saying.

Thanks, TJ’s.
