Sun- broccoli chicken casserole, green salad from Mom n Dad's garden (so awesome), rolls, texas sheet cake for friend Joy's 90th birthday. It had 90 candles- they were all lit and it was quite a sight!
M- chili, cornbread, green salad
T- chicken caesar sandwiches, and possibly corn on the cob, or a giant caramel apple to celebrate the removal of my braces. Woo-hoo!!
W- stir fry
F- cold cereal? I dunno, I think five real dinners in a week is pretty OK. I'll call it good til next week.
Sat- see Friday
And for Kristen, our one reader, a Trader Joe's favorites list! As soon as I finish typing this out, I am out the door to pay Joe a visit to do my shopping for the week. Hope this helps get you started. I think you're gonna like their stuff- let me know. :)
To-Try at Trader Joe's
vanilla almond granola
greek yogurt- I like the honey flavor
spaghetti and pizza sauces
BBQ sauce (Kansas Style Bold and Smoky)
all their salad dressings
vanilla Joe-Joe's cookies
chocolate covered pretzels
spinach salad kit
frozen orange chicken
snacks: TJ brand cheetos, chips and crackers
frozen fruits and veggies- very yummy
McCann's quick-cooking oatmeal
I also get a lot of staples there: my butter, canned beans, nuts, oils and such. They also have beautiful cheap flowers and always fun seasonal items to try. Don't miss the taste-testing at the back of the store. The only thing I don't love is their bread section. Their baguettes and other fresh baked stuff is good, but all the sliced packaged breads I've tried I haven't been thrilled with. I think it's because they aren't chock full of preservatives and they go stale fast. Same goes for the tortillas- you have to use them that day or maybe the next, but they'll go bad quick.
Feel free to add your favorite TJ's items in the comments. And Joe, you're welcome for the free advertising.
