{trader joes // fall}

So, I randomly called TJ’s yesterday to see when they’d get their first shipment of pumpkins. When I heard, “they just got here” my heart skipped a beat. ha. For reals though. It’s been a hard week. Short weeks always rock my damn world. Just less days to cram the same amount of work.

I pulled up to pallets full of Cinderella pumpkins. Warty pumpkins. Tiny pumpkins. It truly made my whole day. Is that sad? Anyway, I took a stroll up and down every aisle picking up any of the fall new arrivals I could find. Since I LOVE seeing what everyone gets from TJ’s and what they’re going to make with the items, I thought fuck it – I will too πŸ™‚ Hope it brings you some joy too. Or maybe I’m the only creep that feels pure happiness from a good Trader Joe’s haul? ha!!!

{air fryer bbq salmon}

I have to be honest – I haven’t LOVED being in the kitchen lately. It used to be my thang!

A big glass of wine, music playing, cooking away in the kitchen. Kinda my way of winding down at the end of the day. I guess it ebbs and flows? Maybe I’m more of a summery kitchen lover? We’ll see….fingers crossed for my peeps. Ha!

Anyway, I saw TheBuyGuide on instagram do an air fryer salmon the other day. And the finished product looked so damn good. I had to try it out. Obvi putting my spin on it. Tried it out last night. Annndddd…
