The weather is getting cooler now. Okay, so maybe 70 plus degrees isn't THAT much cooler, but here in Arizona it is.

So the other day I was in Trader Joe's... oh my son Jason & Lauren ( basically my 'daughter-in-law') work at TJ's . Jas has been there for over 10 years and is working on becoming a Fire Fighter. My son Jeremy works at Starbucks (over 8 years now) and is working on becoming an American Sign Language Interpreter. I have it made ;)

Anyway, I was picking up some groceries and spotted a box of Sweet Potato Bisque. I've seen it many times before, but never bought any. Let me tell you, this is to die for!

We had the bisque a couple nights with our meal and at one point Mark asked if we should just get a straw. I actually thought about it, but wanted to savor each and every spoonful.

If you want a yummy bisque to have with you meal or just by itself with maybe a little cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg, I highly recommend this one. Plus, I can have it because it is wheat/dairy free!

Oh, I'm sure they sell straws there too.

Hah! I like Mark's comment!! We're not much on soup (I think D would revolt - the meat & potatoes guy that he is) but it does sound scrumptious with that cream and nutmeg, mmmmmm!

Yummy Rocki!! My BFF has Celiac Disease and has to get everything gluten free - so she shops at TJ all the time. I'll have to ask her to get some! It sounds wonderful :o)
Have a great weekend Rocki!! ♥

Ha ha! That is such a guy thing to say :) We just got a new TJ in Bend and it is wonderful. It's an hour away unfortunately, but I get there when I can.

Have a great weekend, Rocki!

It looks so good! Campbell's does have a butternut squash soup. I would never have tried it, but when I was in Japan, it was a first course for a dinner we had there. It was great! My geeky boyfriend would love that sweet potato thing!

Oh I would revolt. But I think I have become more of a pasta and meat guy. Never been much of a soup guy. But glad you all enjoy it.
