Ross, these are pretty good Tots, I mean Ore-Ida holds the trade mark on Tater Tots, but these are good and I just rather give my money to a non-global-conglomerate type company ::shrug:: ya know?

Oh heh, and when you make your tot casserole Ross, can you prompt me, I was thinkin' along the same lines or even Utah's Funeral Potatoes ... never had them but they sure sound good

I do about 65% of my grocery shopping at TJ's.. I have found, for me personally, that TJ's offers many products which are as good, if not better than the big boys... The Tots are one of the few potato products I haven't tried.. Keep in mind that Jeannie and I eat more simple (frozen) dishes than when we were younger..

I've never been big on casseroles but, I will try this one when I get home from Missouri..

WOW Ross! That recipe sounds fab!
Unfortunately though, not DH's cup of tea.

My younger sister has lived on the "mainland" much longer than I have and would always tell me about this fantastic place that she liked to shop at,
Trader Joe's. Most of her b-day/Christmas presents from myself were TJ Gift Cards.
When we first moved here, there was a TJ's about 15 miles away from us, but I thought it was a Fancy-Pants kinda store, not a regular market, I refused to go. Then she came to visit with us in the middle of the desert and asked me if I would take her there so she could get something or another, sure.
BOY! Did she school me, I'll tell you!
Now, there are only a handful stores that I shop at, but for certain things.
At Trader Joe's I get:
wine
beer
snack/hors d'oeuvre items (far too many to list)
cheeses (the good stuff)
olives
vinegars
tea
freezer items (again far too many to list)
some veggies

The rest of my shopping is divvied up between:
Walmart (paper goods/cleaning products/sandwich bread/milk/eggs/pantry staples)
Sprouts (fruits and vegetables)
Costco (meats/yogurt/butter/K-cups/bottled water)
and just a handful of items at Fry's (aka Kroegers)

Himself just might swoon into a puddle of happiness if I made this for supper. I'll have to see if I can use it as a bribe to get something done around this place. So many jobs, so little interest.

Something else I like about Trader Joe's is their Fearless Flyer.

I just got my May 2017 issue and the featured article is about Charles Shaw Wines.
Did you know that this their 15th anniversary?
WOW!

Love me my Three Buck Chuck!
