As you move through your weekend routine, which most likely involves dragging yourself to go grocery shopping, we wanted to help you out by bringing you the very best of everybody’s fave & beloved grocery store, Trader Joe’s.
Roasted & Salted Truffle Marcona Almonds
The perfect combo of truffle, salt, and almond, Trader Joe’s Truffle Marcona Almonds really hit the nail on the knob with this snacking pleasure. Whether you’re at work loading up on them as a mid-day snack, or putting them on your charcuterie board at a party (fancy, I know ), they’re bound to gather some attention from the crowd – especially when you disclose that a whole bag is only $5.99! I mean… cheaper than pistachios… and who wants to deal with shells anyway?
Balsamic Rosemary Beef Steak Tips
Omg, don’t even get me started on this childhood favorite. These pre-marinated bad boys, at only $9.99 per pound, have me drooling even writing about them. With a simple dish such as this, that can fool any guest into thinking you spent a bunch of your ~precious time~ preparing, all you have to do is throw it in the oven on broil, add some fancy garnishes + sides and wa-la! a gourmet dinner you have (and chef, you are).
Sweet Potato Gnocchi
If you have a soft spot for Italian food like me, then TJ’s frozen pastas are the answer to your every prayer. In my humble opinion, the sweet potato gnocchi with the butter and sage seasoning trumps their cauliflower gnocchi.
Mixed Berry Scones
If you’re not much of a wake-up-and-take-time-to-make-coffee-and-eat-your-breakfast-deep-in-thought person like me, then these scones are the perfect complement to your morning routine. Ready in under 20 minutes, all you have to do is add water and boom! one week worth of breakfast for $3.69. A little jam and cream on top would make it sit just right
Everything but the Elote Seasoning Blend
Some newness for TJs – if you’re used to the Everything but the Bagel Seasoning, put it on hold for a hot second to try Trader Joe’s newest Everything but the ELOTE Seasoning. If you’re unfamiliar with what an Elote is, it’s a Mexican street food dish of grilled corn slathered in a spicy mix of mayo + crema + chilli powder + cheese. This seasoning will give you everything you’ve ever wanted minus the corn. Time to spice up your lives a little… and let us know how it goes!
