When my brother-in-law Nick moved in, we drew an invisible line down the center of the fridge to distinguish his food from ours. The problem is that I keep thinking I have all this food to eat because my fridge is half full! And then itâ€™s dinnertime and I realize the only things on our side are coffee creamer, ketchup, and peanut butter. Iâ€™ve been eating a lot of peanut butter sandwiches.
To the grocery store I go!
Yum. Non-peanut butter. Brown rice, lentils, zucchini and squash.
As a follow-up to the original My Favorite Trader Joeâ€™s Products post, hereâ€™s a list of the new goodies that Iâ€™m lovinâ€™ from my favorite grocery store.
Pre-cooked potatoes â€“ GENIUS! I love adding these to stir-fries or egg scrambles. Of course, you pay a bit for the convenience factor, but theyâ€™re really tasty.
Snickerdoodle cookies â€“ These are so good that I canâ€™t regularly buy boxesâ€¦. We easily crush the entire package in two nights (or, um, one). Plus, they are free of the eight most common allergens, including dairy and gluten. And yet still taste good. A mystery!
These quinoa and black bean tortilla chips â€“ They taste especially good with the horseradish hummus that I always buy!
$5.99 carton of peaches â€“ Iâ€™m sure these wonâ€™t be available come next week or so, but DANG. They are SO good. This is my third carton and each peach has been perfectly soft and ripe. Considering that Iâ€™m the only one in the house who likes peaches (blashpamy!), that means that Iâ€™ve already had 25 or so peaches in the last three weeksâ€¦
Gingersnap ice cream â€“ Iâ€™m still avoiding dairy because of breastfeeding, butâ€¦. if you do eat dairy, PLEASE pick up a carton of this ice cream and think of me as you enjoy it. Itâ€™s quite possibly my favorite thing in the entire store.
Power to the Greens â€“ A baby mix of kale, chard, and spinach. A nice change from just regular old spinach.
And last, but not least, this all-purpose cleaner is the bomb. I use it to wipe down counters, mirrors, table tops, and more. It smells good, too â€“ no chemically smell.
