Yesterday was a big day for this little blog! For some reason, I had been quite nervous about sharing this blog publicly with friends and family, but finally got up the courage to post it on my Facebook page. I was overwhelmed by the positive feedback, thank you so much :)
We love Trader Joe’s. Who doesn’t? Here are some of our favorites!
Indian Curry Simmer Sauce and Garlic Naan:
You all know about our love for the Thai Red Curry Simmer Sauce, and this is another great simmer sauce. I sauté chicken and broccoli/peas or tofu and chickpeas, add the sauce and water, simmer for 15 minutes and we have a satisfying, quick Indian meal. The curry sauce has great flavor and packs some heat. It’s even better served with Garlic Naan and Trader Joe’s Samosas. This was a frequent meal for our family when we lived in Philly. Another staple to go with these simmer sauces is their frozen Brown Rice, simply microwave the package for 3 minutes and it’s ready…great for busy people!
The perfect post-swimming treat :) These popsicles combine strawberry, pineapple, mango, and passionfruit into one delicious tropical dessert! I’m not usually a popsicle fan, but I love these! Other frozen TJ dessert favorites: Joe Joe’s ice cream (TJ’s version of cookies and cream except with their chocolate Joe Joe cookies, SO creamy and rich), mochi ice cream, and mint chocolate chip mini ice cream sandwiches.
Vanilla and Cream/Blueberries and Cream yogurt pack:
These little yogurts are perfectly creamy and sweet. I always wish the package was bigger :)
Other things that I make sure to pick up whenever I’m there: Mediterranean hummus with the original pita chips (in the blue bag). Speaking of snacks, we also love their blue corn chips, white cheddar corn puffs, organic beef jerky, and honey roasted peanuts. I could go on and on :) I’m really going to miss Trader Joe’s when we move to Hawaii. It’s funny because the Trader Joe’s we go to now in Las Vegas actually has a list of top 5 items that Hawaii people buy to take back with them to friends/family when they visit Vegas!
Hope you all have a great weekend!! We’re going to be packing up our house in preparation for the movers coming next week Friday, eek!
Please share your own TJ’s favorites, I’d love to try some new items!
