Trader Joe's is a fount of goodness. I recently discovered their organic beef jerky, and it is delicious particularly when combined with their chili-spiced dried mangoes. It's great for a quick protein hit in the middle of the day. If only beef jerky were a little less expensive.

Whenever I eat some, M. & T.'s dog Machig follows me around with this pleading look. I always tell her, "Sorry babe, this is expensive meat and you're not getting any."

I was in Borders last week, and for some reason they had all this chocolate on sale. Why they had a ton of chocolate in the first place I cannot begin to imagine. I mean, I know they carry all kinds of tchotckes that aren't books these days, but chocolate seems a bit far afield from their original mission. Not that I'm complaining, because I got a decent quantity of really good chocolate for cheap. The Lindt tiramisu bar makes me swoon. I haven't tried the Ghiradelli dark chocolate with caramel yet, but I'm sure it will be fabulous.

Right now I'm visiting family, and my mom just brought home something called Orginal Aussie Bites--they've got rolled oats and honey and a whole bunch of other stuff in them and they are tasty, tasty, tasty.

I was in North Carolina for a few days and had the opportunity to stop at Gardner's for some tasty NC-style vinegar-based barbecue. I've found this dive-y place in DC where I can get it, but there's something about being in the actual state...I still haven't found anywhere that sells SC-style mustard based barbecue, though. It's too bad that the dominant local purveyor of the stuff is a racist ass whose restaurants I won't eat at. But my mom sometimes makes it in the slow cooker, and I can hope that she'll decide to before I leave town. :)
