Hi guys! Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! Mine’s been great!
Yesterday, the kids and I went to see a theater production of Rapunzel with my sister and her kiddos. We had fun, but I wasn’t all that impressed with the show. Jason’s Deli was yummy as always, though! I also made a trip to Trader Joe’s and wanted to share a few things that ended up in my cart.
Let’s start off by going over a few finds from Trader Joe’s…..
I never leave Trader Joe’s without picking up these Mixed Medley Cherry Tomatoes. They’re great thrown in salads and even better roasted in the oven with other veggies.
I’ve seen these dried Just Mango Slices popping up all over the blog world, so I had to pick them up and give them a try for myself. If you like tart fruit rolls, these would make a healthy alternative. I’m not a big fan of dried fruit rolls, but I did like these and will eat them. I probably won’t buy them again, though.
This is the first time I’ve bought the Red Pepper spread with Eggplant and Garlic and I’m still on the fence. I dipped a couple of chips in it and I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. It has a very strong flavor, so it might be better as a spread on a Panini with a crusty bread.
I’ve mentioned these Dr. Praeger’s California veggie burgers before. They are the best veggie burgers ever!!! TJ’s didn’t have them last week, but luckily they were back in stock yesterday!
A few other loves lately…..
I am obsessed with chopped pear in my salads. Pear adds a juicy sweet flavor that is beyond amazing. My go-to salad last week was mixed greens, tomato, broccoli, pear, kabocha squash, crunched up Mary’s Gone Crackers and TJ’s Reduced Fat Cilantro Dressing. I had one almost everyday for lunch last week and I’m still not sick of them!
You guys are going to think I’m crazy, but my new book is not one from my wishlist that I posted the other day. Actually, Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn is a book that I’ve really been wanting to read for a while and I’ve heard such great things about it, but I forgot to add it to my wishlist. I’m only about 7 chapters in and, so far, I’m loving this book more than any other in a really long time.
Bruno Mars seems like such a great guy! Not only is his voice and music awesome, but he just seems so laid back and super sweet. So loving this song!!
