It’s been a pretty “meh” week so far. I kind of wanted to do a “What I’m NOT Loving Wednesday”. But… I try to keep this space positive, so I’ll let my husband deal with my whining, and I’ll just use my blog to gush about new food finds.
This tea was an impulse purchase at TJ’s a few weeks ago. They had an end of aisle fully loaded with the stuff, and since it was three of my favorite things (green tea, lemongrass & ginger) rolled into one, I couldn’t resist. I absolutely love this tea. None of the flavors overpower any of the others. It’s just a really nice blend.
These pretzel crisps are amazing. I’ve tried a few of their other flavors, but since I was buying these to dip in hummus, I didn’t want anything crazy. These are just salt and pepper, but they are so, so good. I’ve always loved just regular pretzels, but after having these, I don’t know if I can ever go back. I bought a bag of regular pretzels the same day I bought these, just in case we didn’t like them. These are long gone (sniff…) and the regular ones are still there.
I go to TJ’s nearly everyday. And I saw these blondies for the first time last week. I was intrigued, so I bought them. When I got to the cash register, the cashier started raving over them. She told me that they get these in about twice a week, but they never can keep them more than a couple of hours. She even told me to hide them from anyone I lived with until after I had tried one 😉 After one bite, I could see why. These are so good & the texture is perfect (just the right mix of moist, chewy & nutty). I was nice though, and shared with Graham… I shouldn’t have, because they haven’t had these on either of my TJ’s trips this week. I saw this broth on the same trip as the blondies. And honestly, I have no idea what I even went to TJ’s for. But I know I left with blondies and this broth. They were sampling the broth with mini chicken wontons. I had some, and instantly picked up a carton of the broth and a package of the wontons for easy soup lunches. This broth is so flavorful & delicious. Not only will it make a really delicious, simple soup, but I’m guessing it will also make some pretty delicious rice. I’m getting closer & closer to wanting to give up meat & become a vegetarian. I would have no problem at all trading in chicken stock for this stuff.
On my last Whole Foods trip, they had these on sale & right at the register… So naturally, I bought two of them. Holy crap, these were good! Lately it seems like all of the good candy bars are made with dark chocolate instead of milk. I don’t care for dark chocolate. It’s way too bitter. It’s okay when filled with caramel, but in general, just no. This candy bar was delicious. I bought the larger ones, and just broke off a square or two for an after dinner treat. Unfortunately, I’m now out Although… I recently won a contest from OCHO, so I have a one pound caramel & peanut chocolate bar coming my way… So once it gets here, I’ll probably be good for a while… =)
