Trader Joe's Mac & Cheese Bites & Trader Ming's Cha Siu Bao Pork Buns
I mixed up a sauce of sweet-hot mustard, chipotle, and Persian lime olive oil and drizzled it over the buns and the plate. It was a great complement to the dough and pork.
They were very good, just as they have always been. Obviously, they will be gone within a few months, never to appear again, in grand Trader Joe's style.
I had some leftover tomato and roasted red pepper soup in the fridge, which I heated up and spooned over the plate. I had planned to add some chopped basil, not only because I thought it would be tasty but because I thought the color green would look good on the plate. But all of my basil had wilted. So I used the only green thing available: gummi bears.
"What's wrong with you?" Elizabeth asked.
I have no idea.
UPDATE, 11:05: My buddy Phil sent me this picture this morning. I inquired why he had it; he explained that he came across it a while back and saved it because "you never know when that pic might come in handy...."
