I follow this "channel" Mashed ...

… there's all sorts of different videos like that … You Tube is one of our favorite streaming channels, loads of content to interest everyone.

I'm happy to say there's a Trader Joe's opening practically walking distance from my home in two days so I'm looking forward to contributing to this thread in the future. I love that store!

I went to TJ's today, but couldn't find those dark chocolate cookie sticks. I did get a bag of lime and chili cashews - something I figured is easier to chew than corn nuts, while my mouth is healing from that orthodontic work I had done Tuesday.

I got a few bags of their purple tortillas - I'll have to set those aside for quite a while, but I'll have them for the guacamole I make, eventually. Mostly I got some produce and cheeses.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Trader Joe's!!!!
Furikake is not an easy item to find here
In The Middle Of The Desert!
Now the trick is going to be, whether they
will keep it as a regular item and
not as a "Seasonal" thing and drop it

The Asparagus wasn't mushy at all,
and the Risotto was a nice el dente
AND very flavorful too!

The serving suggestion is 3 per bag NOPE!
That was maybe a 1/4 cup! I nuked another third of the bag!

to serve along side, MMM!

I noticed this product (without the TJ name) in my Aldi this week. Passed on it but, I will pick a package up to try.

(See how much I trust your recommendations?)

I did the same thing Ross.
I'd seen that product for a bit now, but
thought that it would be gummy and nasty.
Quite the opposite!
Very good for a prepared frozen meal,
which I do not buy.
But ya know, for the price, and
the fact that I would have been cooking
for just myself for a few days,
trying something new and different was fun too.

"Very good for a prepared frozen meal, which I do not buy."

Until a couple of years ago, neither did I. Old age can change things for some of us.

That risotto says "Imported from Italy" on the package. That's usually a good indicator, when it's an Italian product.

Years ago, I gave up on trying to buy whole wheat pasta. Most of it was just plain nasty tasting. Then, while I was in a small Italian grocery, I spotted some whole wheat pasta from Italy. I gave it a try. That stuff was delicious. Italian companies seem to know how to make Italian foods.

A few years back, when DH was dieting and lost
NINETY FIVE POUNDS
this was a big hit in our household!
I served it with Sweet Italian Sausage,
loads of Garlic, Onions and Kale or Rapini, all with a
nice White Wine "sauce"... big hit!

I found this back in December and stashed it in the deep freezer for a Gal Pal's Card Game afternoon snack.

It was okay, but I think that I would bake it either longer or at a higher temp.
It didn't brown that much.

I forgot to take a photo of the presentation, but, I served it on a tray with three different dipping sauces. They were gone by the end of our game, but I don't think anything that I've taken to share with the class has ever been leftover

I was pokin' around in our local TJ's and wandered
over to the cold case with all the dips and spreads ...
I spotted this and had been thinking about Chicken Salad
for a change up for lunch.



YUM!!!

I put a huge scoop atop a plain Green Salad and DH
turned up his nose ... "EWWWWW! I'm not even going to ask what that is."

My only caveat is they could add more Chicken in there.

The deep fried cheese raviolis are good.
TJs Bagels are just tasteless bread shaped like a donut.

I miss the Fearless Flyer and the easy going radio ads.
Friend owns a few strip malls and his Two Trader Joe’s tenants pay no rent.
All the other stores benefit so much they pay extra rent to be close by.

Lee, I just checked TJ's website and they still have the Fearless Flyer. You can get it by email, snail mail, or both.
