Trader Joes: A Complete Salad – Caesar Style

There are many foods in my world that I can say that I love, and of those foods that I love, this is at the top, or very near the top of the list. I love salads of most any kind, and I have a special fondness for Caesar salads, of which I have had many types of the years. I have had those with the traditional fixings like this one from Trader Joe’s, to more exotic creations having eggs, strips of bacon, or a…

Great Find for Us Salad Lovers

I am a HUGE lover of salads, especially at lunch time, but I always find it cumbersome to take a salad with me for lunch. Either you put everything together and parts of my salad get soggy which I hate, or some items dry out. Also, if you put the dressing on before, what a mess, and usually the salad dressing becomes overpowering, and the vegetables wilt. There appears to be a great solution though, and it's not very expensive either. Amazon has a lot…

The Ultimate App for a Trader Joe’s Fan

I just stumbled on this on Amazon today, and I will be honest that I doubt if I will download it. You see, not much of a cook here myself, and for me to have a app on my iPhone that offers 900 recipes, would be pretty useless. The product features page of the application says that its recipes only use Trader Joe's ingredients, so that is pretty interesting in itself. I mean Trader's is pretty vast in its offerings, but I never thought of it…

Trader Joe’s Low Sodium Garden Patch

I have to admit that I do love tomatoes. I love them in about any form or fashion, except raw where I just bite into one. Not a fan of doing that with tomatoes, pears, apples or anything like that. I guess it's a "texture" thing, or something, but never have liked it. Sometimes, when I crave tomatoes and I know that I would binge if I prepared pasta with tomato sauce, I will instead have V-8 or plain tomato juice, which will usually satisfy…

Are These the Best Deal at Trader Joe’s?

What is the best deal at Trader Joe's stores? Well, there are so many, it is hard to choose, but these might be the number one deal in the place. First off, they are less than a quarter each, so to me that is an awesome deal right there. I mean what else in the world can you get for that price. I guess I should add a caveat to that since they are 19 cents each at my local Trader Joe's, but may not be the…

Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Popcorn – A Favorite

Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Popcorn is a personal favorite of mine. Of course I am a huge fan of snacks and anything made of popcorn, so considering the ease of having this, of course is would be a favorite. Once you open the rather large bag, you are greeted by a lightly salted popcorn treat, just like what you would make yourself, or perhaps have at the movie theater. Like most items at Trader Joe's the salt is kept at a minimum, and there is…

A Favorite – Trader Joe’s Chicken Lasagna

Great for lunch or dinner. Share with a friend! This is one of my favorite items to buy for dinner at Trader Joe's, chicken lasagna. It's one of those items that if you have it once, you will almost crave it at times, especially if you are like me, and LOVE pasta in general anyway. At four (4) servings per container, or one (1) for people like me, it is very filling. Calories are not too bad, even if you do eat the entire container yourself, being…

Weekly Trader Joe’s Haul

My trip to Trader Joe's provided me with that "high" again Today was my weekly Trader Joe's haul, well as many call it anyway. I just call it a trip to the store, since Trader's is about the only store that I ever go to. Plus, I go a bit more than just once a week, so really can't call it weekly. Sometimes it's two, three times I may stop in. Just depends on my mood, and if I am craving something that I can…

Trader Joes Cuban Style Black Beans

A little bit of Cuba in a can! I am an odd duck when it comes to food, and the Trader Joes Cuban Style Black Beans is a personal favorite of mine. It's not a case of cravings like chocolate, or anything like that, but I do bring them home from the store pretty often. At only 100 calories per serving, I will often enjoy a can ( servings to normal people), for lunch, or with a Romain salad at dinner. The black beans offer…

Baby Carrots, the Perfect Snack

When I think about a snack, if I don't have chips or things like that in the house, I often run to the refrigerator in pursuit of something to eat. Yes, you know how it is, you just have to have something, or you will blow away with the breeze the next time the A/C kicks on. Not really, at least not in my case. Snacking is a big problem for me, but I have found a small solution that works most times. Especially when…
