I've been to Trader Joe's when I was on vacation in California. Bought Belgian chocolates, nuts, and maybe wine. Looked like there was lots of interesting stuff, but I don't know how the prices compared to other local stores. The prices looked pretty good compared with Montreal.

The stores I really liked in California were Henry's and Mother's Market & Kitchen

The other night I served Trader Joe' Rolled Pork Roast stuffed with spinach/ricotta/feta/etc and sprinkled on top with red pepper flakes...and came with some gravy (heat the gravy til piping hot). It was very tasty but I recommend you plan on cooking it a little longer than it asks unless your roast is at room temp to start with. I cooked it an extra 15 minutes to get it to 365 degrees.

I think the new thoughts on cooking pork doesn't require it to be 365 anymore either. Is that right?

I don't think cooking pork to 365 F was ever OK.

Back in the old days, when hogs were raised differently, there were issues with undercooked pork. Hogs aren't raised that way any more and are treated to prevent problems.

However, even if those changes had never been made, 137 F. was all that was needed to kill off all the bad stuff. (this is different from chicken which requires a temp over 160 F - different bad stuff).

So, typos aside, I shoot for 140-145 F for pork.

We just tried the smoked salmon salmon and spinach crepes.
I liked them and will eat the rest with an egg for breakfast.

My wife and daughter hated them.

Wife is not big on anything smoked and daughter prefers her salmon raw.

The crepe stayed nice microwaved and they were not too salty.

I like the nuts, jams, fresh produce, 2buckChuck, the little biscotti, spices, wild rice, panettone, really just all kinds of stuff... They are 2 1/2 hours away so I don't get any frozen goods. Wish they would get one closer.
