Ah, the bounty of Florida! Fish so fresh it smells like Febreze, new spuds in winter, real-tasting strawberries, plump tomatoes, Cuban cigars and sandwiches, oysters, spiny lobsters, crawfish, tropical fruits like mangoes, starfruit and lychees, and so it goes. It even has Ikea--but, alas, still no Trader Joe's.
So it is with special pleasure that we return to TJ-land here in New Mexico. And this morning we breakfasted on scrambled eggs ( from the growers market) and TJ Whole Wheat Croissants, baked in our fave old countertop convection oven. Flaky, tasty, light, divine.
And healthy as can be, especially with a generous addition of Irish butter and boysenberry jam. Yeah!
For those to whom the breakdown of foods into carbs, fats, calories, proteins, etc., holds a special fascination, take a look at this site that evaluates Trader Joe's products. It's from Livestrong, Lance Armstrong's non profit foundation. ( Did he or didn't he? And do we care?)
