Thank goodness I did not shop at Trader Joe’s on an empty stomach…

Or I might have spent $200 instead of merely $110 on a lot of items I could have gone without. But hey it’s only money, right? wink


The good thing  is everything I bought fit in two grocery bags so I did not have to make multiple trips to and from the car. 4_1_3v[1]


 TJ’s does have some very good frozen meals that are great for days when at 5:00 AM I do not want to think about putting together lunch t0 take to work. Good to for those days that I get home from work 12 hours  after I left in the morning and am too tired to do more than throw something in the microwave.

TJ’s carries what is nicknamed as 2 Buck Chuck’s” brand of wine that sells for $1.99 – $3.49 a bottle. The Chardonnay and the Sauvignon Blanc are in what I call the category of “cheap enough to cook with but Ok to drink”.

I read Cancun Canuck’s Blog early Saturday where she wrote about Mexican junk food. I think that is why I bought the pepitas and the lime and chili mixed nuts.

I liked that the brie is round and will actually fit nicely on cracker along with a slice of salami.

I rarely buy candy but this looked delish!

I did buy some real food but I didn’t think you would care to see photos of raw chicken breast, turkey, steaks and pasta.

  1. Love their dark chocolate! You should try the chicken verde burritos–a great lunch or dinner–cook ahead and re-heat! Got some eideas for new things to try…if they sell them here on the east coast–can’t buy the wine at most stores around here.

    • I do buy the chicken verde burritos. They are really good for something pre-made and frozen.I just add little sour cream to them and they are good to go for dinner or for lunch.
      I saw in a TJ’s newsletter that they also have a chicken chili verde that looks pretty darn good.
