The pickle popcorn is also my new favorite snack. I don't know if you knew this, but it's Trader Joe's policy to let you taste stuff if you don't know if you'll like it! I asked the cashier if she had tried the popcorn, and she said she like it, and next thing you know she was opening the bag so I could taste. Then, they got me an unopened bag! She said they'd put the opened bag in the break room. So, that's one more reason to love Trader Joe's! I don't know how they did it, but the popcorn is not greasy, it doesn't have a weird powdery feel, and the pickle flavor is perfection. It's like the flavor was infused in the kernel somehow. It's really delicious if you like pickles.
|I was so sneaky!|
I did not do my budget challenge shopping. I didn't spend a whole lot, but I did spend more than thirty five dollars. I was too obsessed with finding the mochi and marshmallows. Summer fever is messing with my mind!
|Pita with homemade hummus, and cucumber salad with a side of fries!|
For dinner I was craving a salad-y type thing with hummus and pita, so I used half a can of garbanzo beans for some homemade hummus, and then the other half got tossed with some diced cucumber, red onion, cilantro and lemon juice. They all combined to make the perfect sandwich! The hummus was really garlic-y, and all that raw red onion made this a perfect single person meal! Ha ha.
If you take anything away from anything I've said ever, please try mango mochi and pickle popcorn if you're able!
