Once there were parking lots,

now it's a peaceful oasis

If you have not tried Italian Blood Orange Soda (Trader Joe's), then you are missing out! This is SO delicious, I suggest you stop what you're doing and rush out to buy some. Please don't rush to my Trader Joe's though...buy it at your own Trader Joe's. While you're there, check and see if they have any sugar plum tomatoes. Lunch on the patio today, nice and cool!

(Warning: you will be addicted to this drink...while searching for a link to order online for you, I found several sites that list this as a favorite TJ's product which consistently sells out. Luggage recommends camping out overnight and waiting for the truck to come in. If you find it, stock up!)

I'm on my way T.J. I love blood oranges...I've been eating blood orange sorbet every night.

Hi - I wandered over from Artsymama's after reading your comment to her post today. I responded, in her comments, to you pondering why people love Halloween so much.

Moving on, what a lovely blog you have here? Did you go to the art party? I haven't yet made it through everyone who attended so sorry if I missed you.

I haven't had TJ's blood orange italian soda, but Safeway (your Vons) has a blood orange and a blueberry orange italian sodas in their Organics line and I'm currently addicted to them. And even better, my family seems to ignore them so I can make a bottle of it last for most of a week!

P.S. I didn't mean to put a question mark after complimenting you on your blog. Groan. That sort of defeats the purpose. Let me try that one again...

You do INDEED have a lovely blog. No question about it.

Whew. Glad I caught that.

Cheers! I missed the tea party and only found y'all once the tea party started popping up day of.

Thanks for the Vons tip!! I'll check out the sodas for sure!

Kim- my advice: pack up and sell the house! You have to get to TJ's! :)

Dude- sounds DELICIOUS!!!!

Tami said...

Sounds yummy....been drinking limeade here.mmmmm

Debbie said...

You ladies are making me thirsty. I only have Pepsi and Jack Daniels at my house right now. I may have to go to Vons or TJ's though. That orange soda sounds delish.

Emilia said...

OK gotta stock them up!

PS Ha ha! Julie, who else will have a great sense of humor like you! I enjoy your post, even it is not about card! :D

Love the photo!

Crap, we don't have a TJ in Canada.
But we do have Loblaw's and they make these great fruit sodas, like pomegranate and my favourite, grapefruit - with a dash of gin or vodka, yummm. Crap again, it's too early in the morning for that.

This photo is very artistic - it caught my eye! But I refuse to try the soda ... I might like it.

Oh yum, I love blood oranges too! Blood orange juice mankes a nice change to lime juice in a tart ;)

Loving your new artwork too!

I Love Trader Joes Blood Orange Soda. I used to get the regular orange but thought I'd try the blood orange for easter an dmy whole family loves it.

Im not going through 2-3 bottles a week. Anyone have a recipe for it? To mix it with other things? I've mixed it with some white wine and that was delicious.
