decent.

 

the packaging suggest these might not do well re: crunch

 

in a humid environment.

One of my favorite TJs cookies. Once open, I store them in a ziploc freezer bag and haven't noticed a change in texture.

I'm much happier with (some of) the fruit, and its value, that I've been buying at TJ's, vs. the other stuff I take a chance on every now and then.

 

I got a bag (7 units) of white nectarines for $3.50 that turned out to be fragrant, sweet and juicy.  The Tuscan (or other) melons I buy are usually just fine, as are the blueberries.  During citrus season, their US grown oranges are good. I rarely buy citrus from the southern hemisphere, once the US/Mexico market dries up. 

 

I bought a couple of jars of that salsa (Hatch) yesterday, and I found the jar I opened to be a little bland when using it for chips, to be honest.  So I emptied it into a small pork chili stew I was making, and used it that way.

plated

dip was mayo and a good portion go green tabasco .

 

these were crispy , batter not too thick

 

but a bit chewy.  in Cginese restaurants thy end up w a bit thinner better , and very tender ,

 

guess that' a good thing , or Id have these twice a dat.!

 

Ill try the other 1/2 pack in a pre-heated AF.

 

I use the AF with a cold (room temp ) start.

 

either way Ill have them again.  just as well they turned out this way

 

or there would be big trouble here.

I bought a bag of the rye crisps, but have put them away for another time. I ate too many handfuls of the peanut butter covered caramel popcorn and am waiting for the sugar crash that will surely come later.

I finally made it to Trader Joe's.  It's less than 5 miles from me, but the area is so congested and full of giant SUVs that I avoid it until I have multiple places that I need to shop before going.  I picked up my usual Unexpected Cheddar and green onion pancakes.  I bypassed the frozen sea scallops until I have some freezer room and resisted the always alluring fresh flowers.  I got a couple of new-to-me eG recommended things.  One was a great success and the other I haven't completely decided about. 

 

@Maison Rustique recommended this peach cream cheese, which I tried on a sesame bagel:

This is the thing I'm not sure about.  I think that the sesame bagel was the wrong vehicle - it was SO strongly flavored that the peach flavor got lost.  I think that the cookies were the right choice, @Maison Rustique!  I'll report back when I try that!

 

The other product was this:

@OlyveOyl mentioned this awhile ago and I put it on my TJ list and finally picked it up.  I used it on some cod.  I smeared it on the cod and then pressed panko crumbs into the pesto (the sauce on top is not the pesto, but some broken lemon/butter sauce):

I loved the pesto – though I’m not sure if I’m going to be creative enough to figure out how to use the entire jar before it goes bad😁
