I’m actually surprised I was able to pull my face out of a bowl of these utterly amazing jelly beans long enough to write this post. But I’m warning you, it might be short…a girl only has so much will power!
If you haven’t tried these Trader Joe’s jelly beans, do it. Like, now. If you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s let me know – I’ll mail them to you…they are that good.
Since I’m getting the majority of my calories from tiny bean shaped drops of heaven these days, I’m trying to be good in my other eating. These black bean lettuce wraps were an experiment gone wrong – I was trying to make breadcrumb free black bean burgers. Turns out, you can’t. Or at least I can’t. If you can, please, let me know! But these wraps just proves there are no mistakes in the kitchen, they tasted great AND I had room for jelly beans after
Ever since I got back from Hawaii, I’ve been craving papaya. I ate it pretty much every day while I was there and missed it immediately when I got home. Then one day as I was strolling the isles of Trader Joe’s, I saw some big, green, looking like they were from the islands papayas. I was pretty skeptical, but I bought one anyway because I was desperate. Turns out it was great! I mean, no where near as good as the ones I was eating on the deck overlooking the ocean, but definitely satisfied my cravings. Since them I’ve been going through them like hot cakes!
Speaking of cravings…I’ve been having som crazy cravings for good old fashioned sandwiches lately. This turkey bacon, lettuce, tomato, and avocado sandwich hit the spot for lunch the other day. I’ve also been making “veggie burger” sandwiches with frozen veggie burgers and all the fixins. Then today I used leftover BBQ salmon to make one of my favorites: salmon and cucumber. A little mustard, whole wheat bread, lots of salmon and lots of cucumber. Delish!
What have you been craving lately?
