So I had a party for one recently. My husband worked a double shift and it was 100 degrees outside so I drove 40 miles to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s and did some serious shopping. Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s are favorite stores of mine, but since they are so far away, I really only get there every 3 months or so. When I do go, I go big! I really love that both stores are within 1 block from each other. I brought my huge freezer bag and 8 frozen cooler packs. Once I was done shopping at Whole Foods, I packed the freezer bag full and brought it into Trader Joe’s with me. Even though I had the freezer bag, I was not going to risk my sushi spoiling.
Here’s what I feasted on once I arrived home.
Squid and Mountain Vegetables (chuka Ika-sansai). This was by far the best new food item I have tried in a long time. The squid was tender and the vegetables were crunchy and a little bit spicy.
Spicy Tuna Avocado Rolls.
Seared Albacore Rainbow Rolls.
Squid, Sushi Party for One. Yes, please.
I also snagged a container of figs. They were kinda pricey, but figs are worth it. I only get them fresh one time per year so I splurged.
What can I say, I’ll drive distances for good food.
Hope your having a great day.
