I'm still eagerly waiting for my store to open!

My snow pea plant is producing like mad to the point where putting a few on salads isn't going to use them up, but I noticed a new stir-fry sauce and bought a bottle - it's called Black Pepper Sauce. Boy howdy it is spicy like you wouldn't believe! I love spicy black pepper so that is right up my alley, but it surprised me with how intense the flavor is. So much better than anything I find in the regular grocery store in the "international" aisle.
The way the snow peas are producing we will be stir frying snow peas every day! Something with the weather conditions struck them just right this year.

We picked up some of the TJs spinach tortellini from the new Fearless Flyer last week. We tossed it with a little TJs refrigerated pesto and served it with garlic parmesan bread we made with a loaf of TJs ciabatta. It was all DELICIOUS!!!!
One of my boys wants to learn how to do more cooking so he is going to recreate it for us on Friday!
I absolutely love Trader Joes! We don't have one where I live so me and the gals from work cross into Michigan once a month to stock up. I have too many favourites to list however I would like to mention the Mandarin Orange Chicken is amazing over the Jasmine Rice. I also love their roasted chicken patties, the fat free feta cheese, the Guacamole Hummus, Chicken Won Tons, Honey Apple Butter, Vanilla Joe Joe's... should I stop now?
No! Keep going! I'm planning to go this weekend and most of my favorites have been discontinued. I like to try new things. The Guacamole Hummus is now on my list.
Count your blessings!
