This ^ was on the endcap at the register today.
OISHII!!! (that's tasty in Japanese)
Trader Joe's take on Japanese Arare or Rice Crackers.
In Hawaii we loving refer to it as Mochi Crunch,
ONO! (that's Hawaiian for delish)
Ooooooh! I just remembered Hurricane Popcorn!
That's really good, made with Mochi Crunch, Buttered Popcorn, Furikake and Shoyu or Soy Sauce.

While I was at it, figured we'd try these cookies too.

They also make a Meyer Lemon flavor, which we've had before.

Not sure if I mentioned this before, but their cauliflower pizza crust, and felafel are pretty good too. Their meatless meatballs ( vegan) are better than many other brands, but still not great.

We stopped at TJ's today. First time in ages. Brought all kinds of stuff home. Of these frozen items, the only one not new to us is the pork shu mai. I'll report on the others as we get to them.

I took Mom with me to our local Trader Joe's yesterday and I encouraged her to look around for something she'd like.
She eyed this in a heart beat

Mom's Sunday Brunch with softened Butter, Maple Syrup and Farmer John's Pork Links.
She was so happy

DH and I had discussed what the day's agenda would be like the night before during our private alone time after Mom goes to bed... we both decided that we didn't want to have this, but I'd make it for Mom... we had Eggs and Sausages.

I asked Mom if I could have just a taste to see what it was like.
I would say it's just an elevated frozen Waffle, like an Egg-O.
It was just okay.

I heated these cuties up in the Air Fryer:
Preheat at 390° for 5 minutes (that's as hot as mine goes)
A very light spritz of Olive Oil
Into the hot AF basket in a single layer (the five Rolls just fit)
Cook for 6 minutes
Flip
Cook for another 6 minutes
Slice on the diagonal, serve with some Thai Sweet Chile Sauce
and you've got a very nice light lunch for 3 (Dh had 1 1/2 along with a bowl of Edamame in the shell)

*Cook's Note: I think that the next time that we three have these, and we will, I would go 14 minutes in total. A tiny bit mushy in the middle but tasty all the same

Mom said these Rolls tasted just like the ones she had in Thailand

I'm glad you are having a much better time with your mom there. I remember you saying that as much as you love her, you were relieved to have her back at her house. Since you guys are having so much fun, is she settling in permanently, or are you guys looking for a place of her own?

CG, I started to post a thread dedicated to Adventures With My Mom, but somehow, I lost it

There is a learning curve for all of us and once I sit down to chronicle this you'll see what's on the horizon.

Japchae AKA Korean Glass Noodles are supposed to be great.
We haven't been able to find them.

These were all good.
Most TJs items are best baked or fried instead of microwaved.
The potatoes needed a seasoned bark or they are bland and soggy.

The Empanadas we covered with butter before baking. They are mildly sweet.

Frittata a bit of butter and some Spike worked good.
