Still have over half a bushel from my friend Scott's 30 tree orchard in Hampton Falls, and I can still pick some more.

Thanks

Cheers

My sisters love the Kringle that appears at Trader Joe’s every fall. Not a huge fan myself, but it’s good once or twice a year.

Speaking of wine. Hanging on cardboards in the wine area is IMO one of the world's great bargains the Trader Joes double hinge (double clutch I call it) waiter's corkscrew. Just 3 Dollars. Rugged, tactile, and smooth in operation. I have a 200 dollar rosewood Lagiuole waiters screw/ It's now in permanent retirement.
Further with wine, Our go to case wine is the Famille Perrin Reserve Cotes du Rhone Very nice table red from a longstanding celebrated wine producer (maker of the very famous Perrin Chateua de Beaucastle Chateauneuf du Pape

As a kid mid 50s - mid 6s

WOWO Fort Wayne WAS A 5OK clear channel station I would listen to ( 🤷 ) on my 7 transistor portable radio.

When I read your post, my first thought was . . . Is Boston Tim related to Steven Tyler? Or, maybe Boston Tim really is Steven Tyler. :woohoo:

I say that because Tyler has written and spoken of growing up in the New England area and how he would run a 50-foot wire from his radio to the top of an apple tree to get a better signal from WOWO. The first time I heard that I was amazed because I've always thought of Fort Wayne as being a step or more behind the major cities.

If you are interested, he talks about this in an interview on the Today Show. It's at about the 2:40 mark.

Like TJ's but we've switched to Sprouts (maybe just San Diego local) since parking situation so much easier.
But we go to TJ's anytime we are out of the best spice in the world....AND the kringles.
Of course we end up spending lots trying the nice selection of wines.

I'm generally not that impressed with sweets but my wife swears by the Speculoos Cookie Butter.

I can't believe I forgot to add that one. It's delish and reminiscent of Biscoff Cookie Butter (and is actually a takeoff of Biscoff). Both are spreads made from cookies.
Biscoff is a combo of biscuit and coffee = Biscoff. It's THE go to biscuit for europeans to go with coffee. Speculoos is a generic Belgian term used for any 'cookie'.
The spreads are a delicious substitute for peanut butter in sandwiches. It's even better on top of waffles, pancakes, crepes, etc. Both are delicious.

They also make a delicious pie crust. I've used both for a pie crust for cheese cake then spread more of it on top to make it even better. Heavenly.
The fam loves this. (The baked cheesecake recipes are far better than non baked).
I posted a recipe for this in the Circle thread about 4-6 wks ago.
