Five foods I love right now!

I love reading posts about foods that bloggers love. It’s so easy to get trapped in my own kitchen and the same things I always seem to eat, so it’s fun to be introduced to new foods, or even reminded of a food I have forgotten about. This is one of the reasons I really enjoy Foodie Pen Pals. So today, I thought I’d share five foods that I love right now!




Red seedless grapes and pretzels – this makes such a yummy snack. I love the salty pretzels with the sweet grapes. A handful of each, and I’m set!




This Fig Walks Into A Bar Cereal Bar – these are from Trader Joe’s and were sent to me in my last Foodie Pen Pals box. If you like Fig Newtons, you will LOVE these. Super moist and delicious. I will have to buy another box of these pronto.




Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter – this yummy goodness in a jar doesn’t stand a chance in my house. I have always loved apple butter and this far exceeds the wonderful flavor of apple butter. It has just the right amount of spice in it. It’s so fall….




Pita Pall Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus – this has a nice little bite to it, so a little goes along way. It’s really good with pita chips or on a wrap.




Broccoli Slaw – there are so many things you can do with this including adding it to salad and on a wrap. I have a great WW recipe for a wrap that I enjoy for lunch. It’s on my menu for today and it’s such an easy go-to for lunch, I’ll be sure to share the recipe.




What five foods would be on your list?


  1. Yum! Love broccoli slaw sauteed then topped with marinara like a pasta sub. SO good! Right now I’m loving eggs with avocado, pears, cooked carrots, kit kats (damn you halloween!) and ginger peanut chews (holy yum!).

    1. That’s a great idea for the broccoli slaw, I never would have thought of that!

  2. I love jalapeno cilantro hummus, but I’ve only tried the Publix brand. Five foods I love now: single-serving guacamole, Greek yogurt, Honeycrisp apples, sweet peppers and pickles (always).

    1. Thanks for sharing your favorites! I bet the Publix brand is good. I like their lemon hummus.

  3. Cheese I do love my cheese
    Off the bone ham
    Snickers ice cream bars
    Fruit Salad

    1. Great list, Joanne!

  4. Your faves are great but have totally made me jealous. I so want a Trader Joe’s!

    1. I wish they would put in one in Tampa. That would be fabulous.

    My top five foods are always the same: Chocolate (good quality and dark), Wine, Mole chicken enchiladas, Steak, and nut butter. Although I am enjoying the pumpkin butter especially on english muffins.

    1. Oh yes, I love dark chocolate and wine too! And steak. We have those in common!

    Where do you buy Trader Joe’s stuff.?

    1. There is one in Sarasota, but I haven’t been there yet. Seriously need to make a trip there because I’m running out of the goodies I’ve gotten from my foodie pen pals!
