Hello from Atlanta!
I flew in late last night and will be here until Sunday. The main reason for my trip is to help out with a few wedding related things, but let’s be honest, it’s been five months since I’ve been home, so it was about time!
I’m so excited to spend time with my mom, dad, and sister over the next couple of days. Aekta’s home studying for her board exams, so her time is a little more limited, but breaks are a good thing, especially when you get to spend them with your favorite person (right, Aek?!).
Anyway, I’ll share more about Atlanta in a later post.
Today I want to talk about my new favorite food finds via a Three Things Thursday post.
(1) PB2 is not a new-to-me product, but it’s one that hasn’t made an appearance in my pantry in a LONG time. When Vishnu and I went to Costco a few weeks ago, I saw that a huge jar was under $6! So of course, I had to buy two.
PB2 is essentially peanut flour. You can mix it with a little bit of water to form a peanut butter like paste. I don’t like it in that way at all actually and prefer to use it in our morning protein smoothies. It really does add a nice rich PB flavor. And that way, I can save my real PB consumption for something a little more substantial. 🙂
(2) If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, run there now and buy these Thai Vegetable Gyozas! All you have to do is add oil to a hot pan, cook these on one side for seven minutes, add a bit of water, and then let them steam for an additional 10 minutes. They’re crispy, they’re soft, they’re absolutely delicious! You can pair them with plain soy sauce (as I prefer to do) or a soy/Sriracha mixture (as Vishnu likes to do). They come in other varieties as well (shrimp, chicken, etc.). You won’t regret it, I promise!
(3) Enjoy Life chocolate chips are not new to me either. However, I’ve been searching high and low for the dark chocolate chips and almost considered buying a pack of nine bags on Amazon. That much chocolate in the house would not have been a good thing, so I’m glad the Target near us stocks this variety. If you’re a fan of dark chocolate, you’ll love baking with these chocolate chips. They’re the perfect amount of sweet…and the perfect amount of addictive.
Well, that’s all I have today! Your turn to share – what are three things you’ve been thinking about/doing this week! If you’re a blogger, write a post and link back to one or all of the hostesses: Raj from Pink Chai Living, Nisha from Love Laugh Mirch, or Salma from The Write Balance. Then share a link to your post (not your blog’s home page).
