Good stuff at Trader Joe's right now :

Petit Verdot TJ label wine from Paso Robles (actually Creston). It's $9.99, very balanced, quite earthy with notes of leather and spice, kind of like grenache. Plus who the fuck has had Petit Verdot?

The new hot dog buns are sublime. They're extremely fresh and tender, unsliced, they're almost more like a dinner roll than a traditional hot dog bun, they taste fresh baked and melt in your mouth. They should not be grilled or broiled, that's murder to hot dog buns. They should be very lightly steamed to moisten and warm them, as is traditional in Chicago.
