Trader Joe's Karat Cake

The frozen section of Trader Joe's is a problem.  Here is our latest Trader Joe's taste test:

Beautiful cake that looks only slightly different from the box.

We each want one piece/an eighth of the cake; so we cut it up and let one fourth thaw... did that make sense?
Here's what the box looks like for your hunter gatherer skills the next time your at Trader Joe's.
Side angle of dense carrot cake goodness.
HIGHLY recommend the carrot cake from Trader Joe's.

Trader Joe's Kouigns Amann

We were very intrigued by the newest addition to Trader Joe's frozen pastry line: Kouigns Amann.

The bottom is super sugary and carmelized.
We liked it, but I think I'll stick to the pain au chocolat and croissants aux amandes.

Egg Roll Craving

I was craving an egg roll today, and instead of having self control, I went ahead and got an egg roll with chicken friend rice for dinner.

Dinner Tonight: Chicken Fried Rice, Egg Roll, and Sauvignon Blanc

My Fortune: The best angle from which to approach any problem is the TRYangle.  Fine, I'll try.

Trader Joe's Lemon Bars

We bought these wonderful lemon bars from Trader Joe's on impulse:

There are 12 in a box, and they would make a great dessert for if you have company.
You take them out of the box and let them thaw.

And then their tart deliciousness is ready to be eaten.

Dinner - Sushi at a New Place

What I ate for dinner:

Miso
Harumaki
Alaskan Roll and Tempura Roll

Overcast Beach Weekend

We had an overnight in Fire Island this weekend.  The weather was overcast and windy on the beach.  Despite not getting to enjoy some heat, the beauty and the power of the ocean is always appreciated.
