The Baked Potato – Cheap and Ready to Eat

Well, Ready to Eat After You Cook Them That Is! I am a huge fan of baked potato's, both because they are relatively inexpensive, and very easy to cook. Sure, there are many places that you can get a baking potato, everywhere from your local Kroger, to in some quick markets. Yet, those that I get at Trader Joe's I feel tend to be a bit fresher, a tad bigger, and much more flavorful. Of course, being honest there are very few baking potato's that…

Eggs, Not Just for Breakfast…

Eggs can be for Lunch and Dinner too!   Eggs are one of my favorite foods that I get from Trader Joe's. I know you can get them pretty much at any grocery store, but I tend to pick them up at Trader's more often, for two reasons. One is because I am pretty much only ever at Trader Joe's for fresh items, and two I think that they may be fresher, and therefore more tasty. When you pick up a dozen of eggs, you…

People are Obsessed with Trader Joe’s Frozen Foods

Of course Trader Joe's is my favorite store, but it always makes me giggle a bit to find out how much others enjoy it. Especially when those flattering comments about Trader Joe's are being shared by a mainstream news source. The video below is from Business Insider, an online publication, that for the most part focuses on business news. This video is one of their more playful, and is featuring comments from their own reporters (I assume) about the benefits, and enjoyment that they get…

When You Need a Quick Meal, Trader Joe’s has you Covered

When you have had a long day, cooking is the last thing that you want to do. What better way to end the day then is a quick stop in your local Trader Joe's for a quick meal. No, I'm not suggesting that like Whole Foods, that Trader Joe's has started serving meals, and offering tables to eat at, but instead pick up one of these great pastas and salads. They are always fresh, almost amazingly so considering I am sure that they come from…

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…

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…
