    This ones for Vaughn :)

    Well Vaughn got my appetite all steamed up for them Hatch chiles a few months ago. I looked around the web to see if i could find them in Toronto, (probably could but not online) and came up blank.

    Well this past weekend near the Harbor Freight store in Niagara i saw a store named Trader Joes. Had never been in one and did not know what kind of store it was, so i persuaded the non shopper in my life to pop in and i found this and it came home with me.

    Now i have to pluck up the courage to try it and hope its even close to somewhat what really exists in Hatch. My bet is that there is 5% real Hatch chile in this bottle and the rest is bogus whatever to make up the bottle and unfortunately i wont know the difference.

    But i want to try this stuff on eggs.

    So Vaughn i will report back.
    cheers

    Love Trader Joe's but never had one ever close enough to go to regularly. Won't be as good as home made, but they usually sell pretty good stuff.

    We've got one here, never seen a place have so many empty shelves. I'm told I went at the wrong time and everything had sold out.

    Word on the street is that the Trader Joe's Hatch Valley Salsa is pretty decent stuff. In general, TJ's has good products for good prices. I used to live near one of their very first stores, and in fact was at the local one here in ABQ about a half hour ago. One common thread they all seem to share is a shortage of parking spaces.

    Trader Joe's is great. To start, their wines are incredible and the Meat is exceptional. I have gone their weekly for over 25 years.

    Hey Jim, Have you been to Bertha Mirandas? Not necessarily an exceptional place, but I like their mexican food (for what's around the general Boston area ). There is supposedly a hole in the wall place on S. Virginia but can't remember where exactly...need to re-ask my grocery person.

    Haven't been there yet, but it just made the list of "Places to eat".
