I've been loving all of the new items at Trader Joe's lately. My latest find was their cocktail pups. They are like Lil' Smokies, except don't have ingredients I can't pronounce! Trader Joe's has a sample area and the day I visited the store, they were serving cocktail pups with BBQ sauce and potato salad. Combine with a green salad or veggie. Easy dinner in a snap!
P.S. The portion size is perfect for an at-home date night.
Here's how to make this meal:
Warm the cocktail pups in a cup of BBQ sauce in a small sauce pot. Sauté green beans with olive oil in a large pan. Add diced garlic, salt, & pepper. Remove potato salad from the fridge. Plate items. Serve alongside your favorite beverage. Ours is root beer.
