Recently, I've been on a Trader Joe's kick. I love pretty much everything in that store. A good Saturday afternoon to me is spent walking around TJ's leisurely on the hunt for more new-to-me items. They think of everything and make it easy for girls like me (who are horrible at meal planning, cooking, grocery shopping, etc.) to actually put meals together.
I love finding new things to try and reading other people's favorite items, so I thought I would share a few of my picks with you guys.
I've posted this before, but it is too good to not include in this post. TJ's chicken salad is crazy good. I usually take it to work with me with pita chips or crackers and it makes a wonderful lunch.
Nothing too exciting here except for the miniature goat cheese rounds. YES PLEASE. These are a perfect snack. Oh and definitely do yourself a favor and try the spinach and kale greek yogurt dip. It is one of my favorites!
Sometimes the idea of a meat, cheese and bread meal is way more appealing than the traditional meat and veggies. Trader Joes has a great selection of cheeses and cured meats that are super affordable. I'm always trying new flavors-this is what I bought today.
I am a SUCKER for all the sweets that are so conveniently placed above the frozen meals. Probably my most favorite TJ's item is the kettle corn. It's so good, it has to be taken away from me-I'll eat the whole bag otherwise. Also, I love all the items they make in the cookie butter line. I haven't tried these peanut butter cups yet, but have a feeling they won't last long in this house! The Meyer lemon cookies are so yummy and pair so well with a frozen yogurt or ice cream. I love lemon anything and these are perfect!
I'll admit it, I love TJ's mostly for their frozen meals. Yep. I just said that. They're the perfect portion for 2 people and the choices are almost endless. Lately, I'm on an asian cuisine kick, so I've loved trying all their options. Also, those sesame sticks are one of my favorite snacks. I keep those in my desk at work.
A few other random favorites. LOVE the Coconut Oil cooking spray. I always stock up on oils, vinegars and sauces at TJ's because they are so reasonably priced. I use the cinnamon sugar grinder for toast-it reminds me of the toast my Grandmomma always made me when I was a little girl. My mom has been OBSESSED with the lavendar dyer bags for years. I stock up for her everytime I go. They make your clothes smell heavenly.
And MOST importantly, I love Trader Joes the most for their flower selection. I buy fresh flowers every week and their options and prices cannot be beat.
