Sunday at Rocket Baby & Trader Joe's

As I was sipping tea at Rocket Baby Bakery this morning, while chatting with Lisa, I was thinking about what an ideal way it was to spend a Sunday morning. 

I ordered a savory scone with goat cheese, scallions and walnuts, and I'll likely have the same thing next time because it's really good!  This was my first time trying Rishi peppermint tea, and I'd order that again too.

Rocket Baby has very short hours on Sundays, 8am - noon, so if you're wanting something specific, I'd recommend arriving by 10am because when we left the options were very limited.

Next, Lisa and I headed to Brookfield to check out the newest Trader Joe's.  Like many others in the Milwaukee area, I was really excited when I heard that we were getting a second Trader Joe's.


When I profess my love, people often ask me what's so great about it (and 99% of them have never been to a Trader Joe's).  I've found that they have high quality, low priced items, which is the perfect combination.

I stocked up on some favorite pantry staples today, picked up a few new things (really liked shopping with Lisa and hearing her suggestions), and am currently enjoying the $4 Spanish wine I bought :)

Do you love Trader Joe's?  If so, I'd love to hear what your favorite products are.  I really need to get out the Trader Joe's cookbook I was given as a birthday gift.  The new store has inspired me to start trying some of those recipes!

  2. I'm not there nearly enough, but my favorite Trader Joe's product is probably the caramel wafers. Soooo good and addicting.

  3. Yes, I see you buy that frozen garlic, too. We love that, and it's so easy for use in cooking.

    1. Agreed! I first saw it available when living in England and became addicted to how convenient it is. I just wish Trader Joe's had frozen ginger available too, which I was able to get in the UK.

  4. I can count on two hands the number of times I've been to Trader Joe's (and a few of those times only for the cheap wine). You blogger gals are convincing me I need to get there more!
