Keep Pineapples and Peaches In Your Pantry: Hear Me Out!

Occasionally, we've chatted about the well-stocked pantry here at TBS's lair. These are key items that make it easy for us to pull together a quick meal for our families or entertain at the drop of a hat.

My dear friend, Kate, for example, swears that you should always, always, always keep a container of Trader Joes' Fresh Salsa. The lovely Shannon swears by Trader Joes' Hummus. Neither is expensive but each tickles our palattes like a million bucks.

Well...I discovered a wonderful non-perishable at Wal-Mart this weekend: Sam's Peach Pineapple Chipotle Salsa. Oh. My. Goodness! I picked up a jar on Sunday afternoon on a whim. I thought it'd be a great snack before supper later in the evening. Can I say that it is a hit?! Though I enjoyed it with Baked Lay's Tortilla Scoops, I began to think of all of the possibilities besides dipping! It would make grilled chicken breasts divine. It'd also be lovely atop a salad of field greens, avocados, bell peppers! Ah....I love it! I can't wait to get another jar or two.

Ummm...did I mention that it's $1.89?! Enough said. Get some.
