Back in 2009, I did a blog posting informing you of some of my favorite store bought products I use like Mrs. T’s Pierogis and Sweet Potato Waffles.
It’s been a while and as I was making my Blood Orange Marmalade and Edam cheese sandwich for lunch today, I thought it was fitting that I updated you with a few more, some of them old ones that I did not mention in the last posting and some of them are new discoveries.
Sarabeth’s Blood Orange Marmalade. I love this marmalade, sweet, but with a little tartness. I discovered it a few years ago, when I was working at a tea house. We had a hot, open faced sandwich on our menu that had this marmalade with turkey and cheese and it was delicious and instant love for me.
There are those evenings when I come back from a job, after cooking for other people and I am exhausted and have no more energy to cook for myself. My fallback is Deep Frozen Samosas. A few minutes in the toaster oven and they are delicious with tamarind or mango chutney. The spinach-paneer is very good, but my favorite is actually the lentil. The texture is not good if you use the microwave, so make sure you use the toaster oven, to get them nice and crispy.
The next one I mentioned in a post last week, but here it goes again. Bombay Sandwich Spread is a great all purpose spread. It goes wonderful with everything from burgers (see below) to grilled veggies.
Trident Salmon Burgers from Costco. These are delicious, not to mention the good fat and protein you are getting from this fish. I love it with Bombay Sandwich Spread, slices of fresh tomato on a sprouted grain bun! I am getting hungry, just writing this post!
And now to snack food. My new granola bar is the Fiber One Oats and Caramel. Why is everyone obsessed with chocolate??? It’s very easy to find the Oats and Chocolate and even the Oats and Peanut Butter, but for some reason, I have to search and always pay full price for these. The Oats & Chocolate is always on sale, but NEVER the Caramel. Costo does not even sell the Caramel..only the Chocolate (at least my location). NOT everyone is chocolate obsessed, you know!!!
These are sweet and very filling, so you won’t be looking for another snack an hour later…not to mention it keeps you regular 🙂
The next time you are in the Indian market or supermarket and looking for something to try, here are a few suggestions!
