Apparently the Thai Satay noodles that I picked up are swill. DH will get them for lunch at some point.

that's right Andy, when I was talking about their coconut macaroons, oy!

Our recent trip, in part, was back down to Tucson, where I went to Trader Joe's to get a few things for our one-bedroom condo that we rented while there (DH had a tooth pulled and so we hung out there for three nights to make sure that everything was hunky-dory).
I was looking for "soft foods" for DH and found this:

Belgian Chocolate Pudding, oh my!
Now, I am not the biggest chocolate fan believe it or not, but MAN! This is good stuff! It's a little steep for pudding, but well worth the coin.
Very rich and chocolate decadence; we could both only eat a smallish amount at one sitting... just wish I had had some freshly whipped cream to go with it

That pudding is from Trader Joe's? I love chocolate pudding. Is it in the cold case with the yogurt?

YES!
It was tucked away, I just happened to see it, as I was looking for "soft foods" for my husband who had just had a tooth pulled.
That was going to be my next post, TJ's yogurt.

Trader Joe's Whole Milk Yogurt

I bought a 6pack of this yogurt for my husband as well recently, for his 3-5 days of soft food only diet.
It was a mix of the Vanilla&Cream and the Blueberry&Cream,
OH MY GOSH!
Normally, I buy Yoplait Light Yogurt, but this eats like Ice Cream, at least that we think anyways. It's THAT good.

Want! Dang that sounds good!

My phone charger bit the dust, the hotel lady had to send her daughter home on her bike to pick up a lender, so my TJ's list disappeared. I am definitely adding chocolate pudding to the list!

Those arancini are evil, K-Girl!

I already posted a number of things we like, but I did think of something else I make sure to keep in my stock - the cherry preserves in the hexagon jar. Those are usually my go-to when making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

I also like their pappardelle. I have a hard time finding wide pasta in most grocery stores, so I'm glad it almost always available at TJs.
