When you are throwing a party and you are tired of the same old chips and dip or even the main course there is just one thing to do. That is head over to Trader Joe's to pick up the food you need but know that your guests will excited with these new choices and tastes.
With fall here and the weather getting colder I aways think of apples, so, when having friends or family over for the first time in Autumn I always pick up some TJ Spicy Cider. This is all natural, made from zesty apples, cloves, allspice, cinnamon and a hint of citrus. Sometimes I will serve the cider hot with a cinnamon stick inside the mug.
Their Blue Corn Chips are another must have. The look on peoples faces when they see these chips for the first time is one of surprise. They are a bit salty so if you are trying to watch your sodium or just do not like too much salt these may not be for you.
I recently found Japanese Hakkaido Scallops in the freezer section. They were a wonderful addition to my stir fry dish. They had a very mild taste and were a great pairing over the brown rice medley, also from TJ.
My list of why TJ is so great can go on for days but I will stop here. I have left the link so that anyone interested can check out more about this splendid place to shop. http://www.traderjoes.com/
