I mentioned the other day that the grocery store is my second home.  I wasn’t lying because when I went to the grocery store, I also swung through TJ’s for a quickie.

Various groceries on countertop

I picked up this new coffee.

Ground Coffee + Cocoa + Natural Chocolate Fudge Flavor =  Perfection

And I picked up a can of Sumatra.  It’s been my go-to coffee for about 5 years.  I always come back to it.

I did a big TJ’s Coffee Review Post.  Check that out if you’re curious about what Joe to buy next from Joe.

I also picked up Caramel Popcorn.

By my accounts, the ingredient list would suggest it’s vegan and GF.  Even it wasn’t, I’d still buy it anyway because it’s super good.

I sprinkle the Caramel Popcorn in with Chocolate Cheezy Popcorn

Coconut Oil, Nooch, Chocolate, and Caramel.  That’s the four food groups, right?

I love popcorn and have a whole section in my newly re-vamped Recipes Page entirely devoted to creative popcorn recipes, blends, and flavor combos.

I also had to replenish the raisin stash.

Two bags of Jumbo Raisin MedleyThey happen to be high in plant-based iron and fiber.  And they’re sweet.  What’s not to love?

I was getting low!

I use raisins in everything and have an entire Raisins Recipes Post.

From my last post about Rainy Day Projects, lots of you like the looks of the fireplace on my balcony.   Yes, I need to use it more!

And taxes, well, some of you have started, some of you haven’t.  I am glad that mine are in the mail on the way to my accountant.

Which means that chocolate is in order, right?

1. Any new grocery/food products you’ve tried lately?

I am always trying new things.

However, I have gotten more selective as time goes on.  Just because I see it on a blog and it looks “amazing” doesn’t mean I have to have it. I try to balance cool new finds with being practical.

I did this post about how to save money on your grocery budget which includes not impulse buying.

2. Fave TJ’s items?

I’ve posted about many of mine before (coffee, condiments, fruits/veggies, canned beans, salsa, and so many more)

And I did this post on my Pantry & Refrigerator Staples (Not necessarily all TJ’s items, but some are)

3. What have you been up to this weekend?

I’ve been working, working out, cooking, cleaning, blogging, and being with the family.  But it’s still raining here.  Darn.

Enjoy your Weekend!
