New Trader Joe's finds

Does anyone else love Trader Joe's as much as I do?!?  Actually, I don't even have to ask, I know  the answer is YES!! I just love that store! Last night I went browsing around....and threw far too many things into the cart.  These are just a few of new-to-me-products I bought last night. All definite impulse buys!-- Except the coconut milk and cookie butter!

  •  Cinnamon cats cookie
  • Cookie butter
  • Maple agave syrup
  • Cinnamon and sugar grinder
  • Miso soup bowl (Kaydin loves miso soup!)
  •  Vanilla coconut milk
  • Cocoa almond spread
  • Pesto filled tortellini
  • Anchovies (going to add this to the tortellini and homemade pizza)
  • Marinara sauce (for the homemade pizza)
  • Chicken sausages- not pictured
Yay!!! It's finally in stock! I have been checking on this cookie butter since December! It was finally on the shelves! I should have bought two jars! It tastes like the Biscoff cookies you get on Delta flights. I also threw in this cocoa almond spread! Yum! So good!

Other routine Trader Joe's buy for us are:
  • arugula
  • pretzel bread
  • almond milk (cheaper than Hy-Vee)
  • Vanilla Almond Just Clusters granola cereal
  • smoked gouda cheese (way cheaper than any other stores!)
  • canned and frozen artichokes
  • fruit leather bits and pieces
  • almond butter with roasted flax seeds
  • cooked polenta
  • Powerberries (dark chocolate covered fruit juices pieces)
  • Kalamata olives
  • EVOO (cheaper than other stores)
  • Teeny Tiny Potatoes <--- Josh and Mom's favorite. I routinely bring home a bag or two every time I go back to visit.

This time the subject was fruit! I definitely have plenty of that on-hand lately!

Now off to use some of the supply up and make some juice!
