and...when making borscht, always wear old clothes and an apron because anything else is a beet juice magnet. anybody want some jackson pollockesque beet spattered shirts or pants?

Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY - November 2014 (Part II)

the dried mushrooms are back as well as the horseradish (who woulda thought horseradish is seasonal? only tj's)

there were some beautiful, fat asparagus spears in the elkridge, md store this afternoon. i think $3.49 for the pound pack. also, a 3lb bag of honeycrisp apples for $4.49. they looked really nice. i didn't pick up the asparagus or apples as i had purchased some yesterday at another store. i paid $2.99/lb for the honeycrisps.

i also saw dried ghostpeppers in a spice grinder amongst the spices.

and, the 3-pack of hand creams are back....!!!

i picked up a box of those precious-looking "cupcake chocolates". i'll be taking them to my sister's for thanksgiving for the taste-test.

akin to: remember to take all meat products home with you for winter break after you've removed them from the fridge. roommate will not be pleased when she/he returns to the dorm a month later to find a "fragrant" room and "pets". yup...been there done that.

Pie??? in Baltimore

bacon jam, anyone?

Rule #1...always...

check the carton of milk that's been sitting in the fridge for a while before pouring on cereal (or adding to other ingredients)

Rule #2...remember rule #1

so, yes, i poured the milk on my cereal, took a bite, and.....gaaagg!!! i know better, but, wasn't thinking.

what food rule(s) do you follow, that when it (they) slip(s) your mind you do a homer simpson "doh!" and shake your head?

Carry-on Packable Foods to Take to a Food-Challenged Thanksgiving...

i didn't mean canned pot pie filling, but just the canned turkey, the gravy packets and the stuffing mix. create the pot pies from that. pick up a can or bag of frozen mixed vegetables at the 7-11.
