Trader Joe’s haul & a fall giveaway (closed)


(This giveaway is now closed.Β  Thanks to everyone who entered!)

This week’s Trader Joe’s haul was actually pretty tiny, but I did pick up a few things that I don’t normally buy every week.

(As always, you can see the other items that I purchased here as part of my weekly staples list.)

  • Cranberry, Walnut & Gorgonzola dressing
  • Garlic
  • Chia seeds
  • Kiwi (I’ve been adding it to my Greek yogurt.)
  • Pumpkin pancake and waffle mix
  • Red quinoa (for a new recipe I’m making this week)
  • Acorn squash

I’ll blame pregnancy brain on this one, but I just realized that the dressing contains dairy and will probably upset my stomach.Β  Apparently, I never bothered to read past the word “walnut” while I was in the store.

I wasn’t a total ditz while I was there though, and I remembered to pick up two additional items- just for one of you!

Pumpkin bread & muffin mix and pumpkin butter


Since I’m always talking about how much I love the Trader Joe’s pumpkin bread & muffin mix and the pumpkin butter, I figured it would be nice to share. πŸ™‚

Just leave a comment on this post about anything that springs to mind, and I’ll consider you entered.

The winner will be chosen and announced at random on Friday.

By the way, I’m officially full-term today! I’m actually off to see my doctor in a few minutes for my weekly appointment.Β  The baby has dropped quite a bit lately, so I’m wondering if he plans to make an early appearance.Β  I’ll keep you posted!

Have a great day!
