i might actually like grocery shopping now

i am ever so excited that next month a trader joe's opens here in fort worth!

i am pumped.

and that's saying a lot from the girl that shudders when she thinks of her next grocery store trip.  i think it's the boring mundane routine of pushing a cart up and down the same aisles every week!

i need change people!

so it will be nice to spice it up every now and then and head to trader joe's and i'm all about the organic so this will be perfect.

i've only been to ones when i've been out of state and i'm always hearing people rave about it. 

i'd love to know if you're a trader joe's regular, what are your absolute favorite foods that we must try!  and hey while we're at it feel free to add in the ones we should pass on too!

I shop there (almost) exclusively and my favorites are:

The Spinach salad pack - with cranberries, pecans, blue cheese, raspberry vinaigrette. I like when my salad tastes like candy.

The microwaveable brown rice is actually really good. Doesn't taste microwaveable if you ask me.

Butternut squash ravioli is yummy

I love the multi-grain crackers and garlic hummus. Great snack!

I eat the maple pecan flake cereal. They also used to have this yummy oat something cereal that looks like pinwheels and tastes like gingersnaps that I LOVED but they haven't had it at my Trader Joe's lately. Oh well. It's probably better that way.

The brownie bars are a yummy treat. I eat the cranberry instant oatmeal at work nearly every day.

The stirfry mix is awesome and the cheese enchiladas are pretty good for frozen food.

OK, that's enough about my eating habits and how much I don't cook. Enjoy!!

Oh my gosh, you will LOVE living so close to a TJs! I love that place. I love to get their microwavable edomame, the southwestern chicken quesadillas, spanikopita, Omega-3 trail mix, kettlecorn, and also the chipotle hummas and pita chips! I'm also a big fan of their wine selection which includes Charles Shaw wine for only $3.99 a bottle, you can't go wrong! Happy Shopping!

Well, I just about jumped out of my chair with excitement over the Trader Joe's news!

My mom & her husband live in Ft.Worth, so we make it down that way a few times a year. Prior to now, I've only been to a TJ's one time, and that was in Minneapolis on a trip to visit our daughter a few years ago. As soon as we returned from that trip, I excitedly went online to see where there was a TJ's in the DFW area, and was so bummed to find there were none in Texas. I love that store!
