... and I meant to say that TJ's frozen fish fillets aren't huge, you could easily use that up in a couple of days ... tacos, salad, plain with veggies, stir fry ... one package feeds the two of us in one meal, well maybe 3 servings in total ...

When you visit tomorrow, you'll be glad to see the fillets of fish are frozen side by side in usually packages of two fillets.. The Cod chunks are frozen in a rectangular package together however. It would be easy enough to cut in half partly frozen and return the unused half to a freezer bag.

We made the hour trip to Cleveland and to Trader Joe's yesterday. I bought about $60 worth of odds and ends -- no perishables as we were going to go eat in Cleveland afterwards.

I bought some mac and cheese, pita chips, some of their beer, canned goods, etc.. Tonight I made 'Russian Food' with some Trader Joe's Rice Pilaf, some sauerkraut, and some kielbasa. Not really Russian, I know. :) But the rice pilaf from TJ's is really good for a boxed product.

I feel sophisticated shopping there. :) It's not like Giant Eagle around here. My wife is using a walker due to a bad back. As my wife was getting out of the Honda, a lady was pulling into the space next to us and she saw my wife with a walker so the lady waited to pull in. Then I thanked her for waiting. She had a very cool French accent and she was beautiful, too, and was dressed very nicely.

I took 3 years of French in high school, so I spoke to her a little in French. No one around here in Youngstown/Warren speaks French. I like large cities for the arts, culture, etc., but smaller areas have their advantages too.

Ooo-la-la, a French lady! Did you go into Cleveland Cleveland, or just on the outskirts, jd? If you go all the way into the city, don't forget to make time for West Side Market. The only problem is all of the walking through crowded aisles would be tough for your DH using her walker.

Oh, and what restaurant did you eat at? Last time we were in Cleveland we had an authentic New Orleans meal at Bourbon Street Barrel Room in the Tremont area. Very good.

We never went into the downtown area itself --- just SE 'burbs. I am not from Ohio (wife is). I am from the San Francisco Bay Area. I guess it's Garfield Heights?

We ate at Ruby Tuesday. We were going to eat at an Italian place but it was only opened for lunch. Yeah with her disability crowded places are tough.

Yeah the French lady was nice. 35 or so, beautiful. I am not used to European flair as there is none around here unless you get into Cleveland, Pittsburgh. :)

OK, whoever recommended the Meyer lemon cookies I've already eaten half a sleeve of them. They are really good!

Trader Joe products you have tried

Well, we totally destroyed both cans of smoked oysters. I'm well on my way to decimating the remaining half of one of the Meyer lemon cookie sleeves.

We had a dud from TJ's. I think it was called an Alsatian Onion Tart. Kind of a flat bread. We didn't care for it at all.

I'm with you Andy
I had such high hopes for this product, but it was a flop!
