When I need a moment to relax, I like to slowly walk my way around a grocery store I don’t often go to. Enter: Trader Joe’s.
The food there is just so out of the ordinary. There’s always a ton of things to look at. And then I laid my eyes on one glorious box and time stopped and I didn’t give a shit about the cleverly drawn chalkboard signs.
MACARONS. My obsession. The first food I’ve ever really TASTED, savored every bit of.
Thankfully, Boy was not around as I stood in the kitchen, slowly biting into my first (Apricot, what up!) and literally going “Mmmm. Oh my god. Ughh. This is so good.”
I did that for each flavor that followed after. The box was totally gone the next morning.
While that was a huge highlight to my trip, what really surprised me were what happened when I purchased some gorgeous pumpkin ravioli.
I had absolutely no idea what sauce to put with these, so a quick Google search brought up many sage butter recipes.
Let me tell you something – it was one of the best sauces I’ve ever had. Yet before I give you the recipe, I must warn you: fresh sage? That shit smells like pot. I was kind of concerned as I was tearing leaves apart for this.
