The most recent Fearless Flyer from Trader Joe’s features quite a few Thanksgiving themed foods.
Soon after reading it, I went over to Trader Joe’s to pick up some things. Unfortunately, they were out of a lot of the side dishes I wanted to try. But I did manage to get a few items on my list, along with a few others I found while browsing around.
Mini Pecan Pies
I love mini things, especially mini pies. They are the perfect size for my household. I was going to heat these up for my mini Thanksgiving run-through, but I ended up making mini pumpkin pies, so these will be eaten on another day.
Pesto Gouda Cheese
I love gouda and I love pesto. So this combination really worked for me. I’ve been slowly nibbling away on it. I plan on using some to make a pesto macaroni and cheese.
Brussels Sprouts Stalk
TJ restocked its Brussels Sprouts stalks! I had gone a few weeks ago and they were all out, but they are featured in the Fearless Flyer. According to the Fearless Flyer, they make a great Thanksgiving centerpiece. You can also roast them whole. I haven’t decided whether to try roasting mine whole or keeping it raw on Thanksgiving day and then removing and roasting the sprouts later.
Speculoos Cookie & Cocoa Swirl
Trader Joe’s came out with this last month, stepping up their regular cookie spread to create a cocoa swirl one. I love how it looks, though taste-wise I actually prefer the regular spread without the cocoa swirl.
Wild Mushroom Brie Cheese
This is creamy and rich. Perfect on crackers and I’m sure many other ways.
Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce
I really love Trader Joe’s salted caramel sauce. It’s really thick, which is how I like my caramel sauce. I recently used it on my flourless peanut butter mug cake.
Sparkling White Chardonnay Grape Juice
I’m always interested in trying different sparkling juice flavors. I haven’t yet had white chardonnay grape juice flavor. I am saving this bottle for this weekend.
The pecan pie ice cream is also back but I had a few more errands to run and didn’t want it to melt. I’ll be back for it soon though.
Happy Almost Thanksgiving!
