Trader Joe's YAY/MEH/NAY - October 2014 [old]

Huge YAY - Fig & Olive Crisps - These things are seriously addictive. Rationing has been implemented but barely followed.

Huge NAY - Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramels - Oh my poor breaking heart. There was so much potential here but BLECH. The "spice" seasoning is just weird. And the caramel is weird. Also, the salt on top is weird.

Olive oil dispenser for easy cooking

I'm with the other winos...I have a repurposed blue Riesling bottle capped with a rubber and metal bartender's spout that I've used for years - like at least 4 years. I've never dropped it and it's never gotten slimy.

Being a Riesling bottle, it is fairly tall but that's fine with me as it sits on the counter. I like it because it's pretty and holds a lot of oil but because it's thin, it doesn't take up much counter space. Considering the wine was a gift, it was also free. Booyah.

Round Sirloin Tip Steaks??

At a friend's home helping out and having to cook dinner with just what they have on hand (no way to go to the store), which for proteins, means a package of thin, tenderized Round Sirloin Tip steaks and other than to jacquard and use for chicken fried steak, I'm drawing a blank.

Can these be sliced thin and used for beef stroganoff or beef tips in gravy? I've got pasta, potatoes and rice and assortment of veggies. Just not sure how to best cook these lil buggers.

Thanks in advance!

What fast food do you eat rarely, but that first bite think "Wow, this is so good!"

Krystal's Original Breakfast Scrambler. There is nothing low-carb or diet friendly about it but it's a southern girl's dream - a cup layered with grits, scrambled eggs and cheese, topped with a piece of Jimmy Dean sausage. It's wrong to love something so bad for you so very much but I do.
