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…

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.

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…

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…

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…

Why I Love Trader Joes…

OK, here we First off, I LOVE Trader Joe's. OK, I said out aloud, but I do. Maybe you do too, or perhaps you would not have even stopped in on my page. Anyway, we got our first Trader Joe's about two to three years ago, maybe more. We are not a huge town, not like an Atlanta or San Francisco, or maybe even Austin, but we finally got our own. The day it opened, it was a big deal. Has been for me ever…
