Have I Mentioned I <3 Trader Joe's?
Dinner last night consisted of Trader Joe's Berry Medley (blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries). A one pound bag of frozen summer berries is $2.49 and thrown in a bowl and allowed to defrost for half an hour, sprinkle with a pinch of sugar and oh my it's a joy! I think I ate 2/3 of the bag over 3 hours. I had originally planned for that to be a lovely afternoon snack but it was so good that it just became dinner, and I can't think of a better meal for me, all full of vitamins and anti-oxidants and just not that many calories. It reminded me of my grandma's frozen summer peaches, which is still my favorite hot weather treat. There are few things better than peaches picked at the peak of ripeness and frozen away for a few months and brought out during those unbearably hot end-of-summer days in Sacramento.
