I miss TJ's.

Poor DH. He must love you very much or be extremely hungry. Just don't let him get too hungry or you might find Beagle missing. We can't have that. After all we love Beagle almost as much as DH.

DD Went pumpkin crazy at TJ's yesterday. The pumpkin spiced Carmel corn and pumpkin cookies were great. Haven't tried the pumpkin 🎃 waffles or pumpkin O's yet. They were out of pumpkin cheesecake so she couldn't get that.

I picked up the Belgian chocolate pudding- WOW is that good!
The rice pudding is ok but maybe I should have tried it before the pudding. Lol nothing stands a chance after the pudding.

PB & J chocolate bar sold at the cashier counter is not good, threw my half out.

Had a sample of the pumpkin cheesecake. It was delicious.

Ok went to TJ's and came home with several new things to try:
Avocado oil
Orange muscat champagne vinegar
Coconut creamer
Ready to bake cinamon rolls

Can't wait to try them out.

Tried a package of macaroni and cheese balls (breaded) yesterday. They were OK but not great. Not a lot of cheesy flavor.

The orange muscat champagne vinegar is delicious - I love that stuff. I'm down to about a third of a bottle, just added it to my TJ's list. I love it mixed with a little olive oil and drizzled on a mixed greens, avocado, and red onion salad.

Their cinnamon rolls are to die for, too.

The skinny on the new to me TJ products:

The Avocado oil has a delicate flavor.
The Orange Muscat champagne vinegar has a nice flavor but is pretty sweet and not very acidic. The dressing formula had to be adjusted to a 2:1 (2 parts vinegar to 1 part oil) ratio.

I made a pot of coffee with lunch to try the Coconut Creamer.
The coconut creamer (dairy free, soy free, gluten free, Vegan and Kosher D.E.) has a very mild taste.

All in all I am happy with the new to me items.
