(iBrrrrrr.... made it home to B's parents' house this past weekend - him and his dad did some deer hunting! I did venture out Sunday morning and sat with him for a few hours..but it was cold! Manageable but cold.
Favorite part? being with him. sitting in nature. drinking my coffee. and eating my apparently way too loud snack. oops!? - But seriously...have you tried the rx maple sea salt bars? (i'll post a link below...)
That afternoon I decided to make a trip to Trader Joe's! His parents live about 40 minutes from one...and it's about 3.5 hours from our place so it's like a treat to be able to go! I know many of you have your own favorites from there (as do I) so I thought it would be fun to share what I brought home! - Part one will feature some pantry items...and part TWO will be my freezer things!
Trader Joe's Haul Part One
I feel like I could wander that store forever... can we bring one to Fargo, ND please???
Picked up some baking staples for my holiday baking!
- chocolate chunks & chocolate chips
- cocoa powder
Another favorite of mine is their coconut flour - but it is recently discontinued I guess?
This was a new find! Peanut butter cup TRAIL MIX? Count me in! And I think B will be a huge fan!
- LOVE these dark chocolate sea salt almonds with turbino sugar! I bought two...MIGHT give one away as a gift...or maybe a gift to me?
- these caramels are so good too!!
I tried their pumpkin spice almond beverage and it was so good! I figured I know I'll love this one so I grabbed TWO because I'm sure they will be gone fast!! I plan on making my own peppermint mochas using my nespresso machine!
- delicate squash!
I'm LOVING squash - HERE is how I love to make it!
- Their ketchup is seriously the best! (and so good on squash!)
- Ghee - its basically butter with more of that buttery flavor. so good!
this mixed nut butter is amazing! And a bargain at that with all the kinds of nuts that is in this! (almonds, cashews, walnuts, brazil nuts, hazelnuts and pecans!)
Do you have a Trader Joe's near you?
