Last week after an appointment down in the Philadelphia area I popped by Trader Joe’s. I laid my eyes on a huge container of fresh California figs for $4.99 and instantly became elated. I love figs. Fig season… then pumpkin season. Seriously, in my humble opinion, the best season of the year. I’ve been using them on arugula and balsamic glazed pizza. In smoothies. And I had to… I had to make fig newtons. Perfect back-to-school snack that’s healthy enough to grab for breakfast too.
