It’s back

A couple of weeks ago I stopped into Trader Joe's to replenish my Hot & Sweet Pepper Jelly supply. I searched high and low. Finally I resorted to asking one of the always-friendly staff. He looked high and low, to no avail. Finally he resorted to asking the great and powerful guy sitting behind the desk. He told us the amazing jelly was only available during the holidays. What??? So I tried to convince them that the holidays happened all year … at the time we were only days away from St. Patrick's Day. Surely that's a holiday? Apparently not one worthy of a fresh supply. And then, yesterday, while I ran in to pick up a loaf of bread … there it was. A gloriously stocked shelf of the hot & sweet stuff. Just in time for Easter. Delicious and miraculous.
