Oh Trader Joe's, I Love You So!

Sharing some yummy things I've come up with in the past few days, with Trader Joe items:  

Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter
This is delicious! I think that even if you're not a pumpkin flavor fan, you'll enjoy this pumpkin butter. It's not overly pumpkin-y, and not too sweet. I just picked up the jar and tried it for the first time the other day. This will be a staple in my kitchen.

Trader Joe's Gluten Free Ginger Snap Cookies
Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter

Spread some pumpkin sauce on top of a ginger snap. Snazzy and elegant treat!  
Fruit compote with Pumpkin Butter
Sliced banana
Sliced peach
Chopped walnuts
Pumpkin butter.

Put all the above in a bowl. Drizzle pumpkin butter, and enjoy. Very tasty desert.

Pasta with Tomato and Lemon Alfredo Sauce
1 Jar Trader Joe's Alfredo Sauce
Trader Joe's spiral brown rice pasta
 Sliced lemon
1/2 small can tomato sauce
Red pepper flakes
black pepper to taste
Cherry tomatoes, halved

 I use the rice pasta or corn pasta because I try to avoid gluten as much as possible, but any type pasta will be fine. Heat contents of Alfredo sauce in sauce pan. Add half can tomato sauce, tomatoes, spices. Squeeze in lemon juice to taste. Pour over cooked pasta.

If you love the pumpkin butter you should probably stock up. I have noticed that certain things, like pumpkin butter, are seasonal at TJ's. They have a wonderful decaf green/peppermint tea during the holidays, but only then. BTW, if you like coconut the "toasted coconut cookie thins" make a delightful snack, especially topped with yogurt and fruit!

I've been back there a few times but they've been out! At least their Pepper Jelly is still available :)
