Before I get to the Trader Joe’s goods, I want to wish my dad a very Happy Birthday! You’re such an amazing dad, fantastic grandfather, and I don’t know what I’d do without you! Thanks for being you and everything you’ve done for all of us!
Yesterday afternoon, I was feeling blah and knew we needed to get out of the house. I have seen many people head to Trader Joe’s lately for all the pumpkin and since it’s less than 2 miles from us, I decided we needed to head there.
Annabelle’s face lit up as we walked in and were greeted with all the flowers. A beautiful pink bouquet ended up in our cart because Annabelle just had to have it. We meandered through the aisles, tasting many different things they had to sample, and made it out of there alive. I thought I’d share what I found and can’t wait to try out!
Cauliflower Pizza Crust: I’ve seen many recipes for making this, but I just have never done it. I’ve heard great things about this, and since it was finally in stock, I had to buy it. I’ll report back!
Pizza Dough: But, this is our favorite pizza dough. We have pizza typically once a week and I split this dough in two pieces and we have two different pizzas to top.
Pumpkin O’s: I am hoping these have a hint of cinnamon to them and are just as delicious as I imagine.
Haunted House Chocolate Cookie Kit: Gingerbread house but for Halloween? Sign me up. I don’t like gingerbread but making the houses is always so fun. I’m hoping to make this with Annabelle soon!
Cookie Butter: I love putting this on the top of my oatmeal. Can’t leave Trader Joe’s without it!
Pumpkin Bread Mix: I’ve made it from scratch before, but I envision this to be delicious and moist.
Beer Bread: Had I known this was a seasonal item before I checked out, I would have stocked up. I love beer bread, but haven’t had it in years. Can’t wait to try it!
The Complete Cookie: I’m definitely skepticle about how good this will be, so I will be sure to report back.
Fig Cereal Bars: I was thisclose to buying the pumpkin ones, but these are a favorite and I knew we could use some more for quick snacks.
RX Bar: This flavor was Apple Cinnamon and I may be one of the last people to have ever tried one of these bars. I’m definitely questioning how good this can be, but I’m anxious to try it!
I made an effort not to eat everything last night, but I’m sure that self control won’t be lasting too long. I don’t know why we don’t frequent Trader Joe’s more often considering how close it is. If these all live up to the hype, I’m sure I’ll be back in no time.
