two items from TJ's :

made this the same way as the Chicken-Poblano above :  stock / beaten egg / spinach / Parmesan-ish dice

 

very nice I though

 

and

TJ's has some Ciabattini rolls , 1/2 baked   O.o

you finish the baking at home.   I cut them in 1/2 , and lightly toast them in the CSO

 

let cool , and now use for The Cheese Course.    my only other bread in the house is sourdough , and these are more interesting in a neutral flavor sense for cheese

 

the cheese on the bread is the now D/C'd   Spotlight cheese 

 

Rubius.  this is the last I had.  aged in a very cool kitchen cabinet 10 days or so.

 

it was Soooooooo much better than Right off the Bat.    they made Rubius a spotlight Cheese just to drive me crazy once i got the Age @ Home times close to right !

Since I've moved to Denver I've been having trouble finding a couple of condiments. One of them is a really decent dijon mustard. The only French dijon for sale in these parts seems to be Maille. It's not my favorite, and it's really pricey. I've seen small jars on sale for $6. World Market has slightly better prices (and larger jars), but I've been looking for an alternative. I know ATK rates Grey Poupon highly but it tastes rather insipid to me, as do most of the U.S.A. made "gourmet" dijons I see in supermarkets.

 

Then the other day, I bought the French-made dijon and whole grain mustard at Trader Joe's and they were both excellent and very reasonably priced at well under $2 a bottle.

 

(The other condiment I haven't been able to find are salt-packed capers. Still no luck there.)

TJ's french mustard has gotten very good reviews

 

I love it

 

I think it was recommended in on of the ( many many ) ATK books , the TV show cookbook ?

We too like TJ's mustard and I stock up whenever we go.  We haven't been for quite a while and I just checked our supply.  We are down to our last full jar.  Time for another trip.  I believe it was @rotuts who put me on to that.  If there is an Italian grocer in Denver, check with them for salt-packed capers.  That's where I buy mine.

When all else fails -- Amazon.

 

Thanks, but at over $17 for a small jar, that's too pricey for me. I used to pick them up at the Upper West Side Fairway for just a few dollars.

 

I've tried a few local Italian / European grocers, but so far no luck.

I would recommend going back to TJ's and stocking up on that mustard in case it is a seasonal thing.  They do that.

I have bought that mustard at TJ's for years.  I don’t believe it’s seasonal

I agree.  Anything from TJ's can disappear anytime but I haven't noted any seasonal pattern with the Dijon mustards.
