Food!

Still here!  It’s been a really stressful week (thanks work!) so I’ve been MIA on many fronts.  But….i’m still here and figured today I’d write about food.  Yum!

Here are a few things on my radar…

The Braised Greek from CHOPT.  My goodness!

I believe this is a NYC area chain, so I’m not sure how many people have access to it.  After a just OK first experience, on my second visit I ordered the Braised Greek and fell in love.

Here’s the description:

YUM!!!
Generally speaking, I don’t find salads particularly interesting or appealing and I think it’s because they tend to be boring.  I like stuff in my salads!
Last week I was tasked with dinner on a night I ended up stuck at work late.  I had ZERO ideas or inspiration, so I headed to Trader Joes hoping I’d see the light.  I went straight for the proteins and saw lots of meat (not my thing) and Dijon Salmon.  I can work with salmon.  Maybe a hearty salad.
So I skipped over to the produce section and picked up a bag o’ greens, beets, a sweet potato, and zuchini.  Then I grabbed some candied walnuts, feta, and Joe’s Balsamic dressing.
Initially my other half told me I was cheating with this meal, but in the end he agreed that it was quite tasty!
Since I seem to go to Trader Joe’s at least once a week, I’ll also mention a couple of items that I haven’t yet tried but will (soon).
Tempura Cauliflower – Have you had this?  It looks interesting

Dark Chocolate Almonds with Turbinado Sugar and Sea Salt.  I’ve mentioned these before, but they really are THAT good.  I brought them home this past weekend for Passover and everyone who tried them agreed.

Chocolate Covered Honey Grahams.  Someone recommended these bad boys.  Have you tried them?

Yay food!  Any recommendations for good stuff from Trader Joe’s (or anywhere) or any good recipes?
