Went out today with my bride of 33 years as of May 1 and went shopping and out to eat. I had the 2 chili dog platter and she had hot turkey sandwich with mash spuds and gravy, both were very good at the Lucky 13. Now the 'find' was at the TJ Max store. They have a section in the corner for just cooking thingies and 1 aisle of spices, vinegars and olive oils and some sauces and hot sauces. So 3 bottles of Melinda's, been using that for years. Got the new Nogo Jolokia pepper sauce, the jalapeno, and a new Fire Roasted Habanero, as always awesome. Now the spices were new to me. Dangold Gourmet Collection Spice Blends. Bought 4 of their line and wish I would have bought them all, simply awesome. Got the Lemon Pepper, Hot n Spicy Cajun Style, Spicy Stir Fry, and Oregano Basil and Tomato. ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with any of these. For sure going to crust the 9 lb, bone in Mother's Day prime rib on Sunday with some of this. Also got some Olde Thompson Steak and Burger Seasoning, comes in it's own grinder and some Garlic Pepper Seasoning from Lesley Elizabeth inc, both also very good. Interesting thing about all these is they are all coarse ground spices that are not in with a bunch of salt settling but rather the spices are identifiably distinct and have probably been soaked in a saline and then re-dried for a nice even saltiness and not overly so. And got some aged mango balsamic and fig balsamic, that nice aged 'thick' stuff. Anyway, not a store I would normally go in (mostly a chick shop) but glad I went and will check out their foody aisle frequently as it always changes. Here's some web sites. Oh, bty, got these all for about 3 bucks average apiece and nice size bottles too, about beer can size or so!! Anyway sorry for the long post, thought I'd share.
