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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
