Happy Thursday, friends!
First and foremost, I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of the veterans and families of veterans out there reading this right now. I am always thankful for your service, but I want to especially make sure you hear me say it today. On Friday, my sweet grandmother was buried at the DFW National Cemetery which was so important to her and my grandfather, a Marine. Going there on Friday afternoon and seeing all of the tombstones of those who have served our country and/or been immediate family of one who has served was incredibly humbling. It was also humbling to see the dozens and dozens of veteran volunteers at the cemetery making sure each and every family was blessed. Thank you so much to all of you and your service to our country.
This week, I went to Trader Joe’s for my weekly shopping and found a few things I thought you might like to see, but before that, let me remind you of these gems from last November…
…these g-free pie crusts are in the freezer section and come two to a pack. They’re really delicious and easy to use!! You should use one and make…
…my Cranberry & Walnut Pumpkin Pie 🙂 .
If you’re looking to make a breakfast casserole this season and need a good g-free bread…
…there is no better option! You can also buy this bread with gluten and it’s equally as delicious. I buy several loaves and keep them in my freezer. They’re great for…
Now, on to the new stuff!
I made this on Tuesday night…
…my delicious Pulled Pork Chili. Seriously, this stuff is AMAZING, and I used…
…this apple cider pork loin from Trader Joe’s in it! (Read the recipe for the details!) This pork is a new seasonal item and it was perfection in my chili!! It was honestly super flavorful and really tender. I was so pleased with this find!
Maybe I’ve posted these muffins before but let me just reiterate…they’re a g-free family’s joy!! Even if you can consume gluten, you should try these!! They are moist, they are not grainy (a gf baked goods issue), they are delicious. You would never know that they are sans-gluten.
Always a great find around Thanksgiving! I bought several boxes and will use them all season long in place of chicken stock and/or in turkey based recipes.
Oh the possibilities are endless like…
A little bit of this with some crackers and a few nuts…the perfect afternoon snack!
Speaking of nuts, these are great to have for charcuterie boards around the holidays!! We went through two tins last year! They’re great “bar snacks” too!!
YESSSSSSSSSS! So, I am a huge fan of horseradish, but if you’re not, I still think you’ll love these because they aren’t too powerful. The nice guy helping me check out told me I should have bought three bags. He said he ate an entire bag in one sitting. They are seriously delish!!
And you guys, check this out…
…how cute is this?! I bought one for Kensington instead of a traditional candy Advent calendar. I thought it was too cute for words. On the back…
…it tells you exactly what’s inside your box. Isn’t that fun?! I bet these are G-O-N-E before we know it!!
