booty call...

The CULPRIT



This 4oz bag of air-puffed cheesy deliciousness is responsible for my demise today. Every time I go to Trader Joe's, I tell myself that Jack needs a bag of this yummy puffed corn because it is dissolves quickly in his mouth posing little to no risk of choking. However, what really happens is that we finish our shopping, get into the car, and I immediately start in on the bag of Pirates Booty. By the time we get home, half the bag is gone! Then throughout the day I revisit the bag until it is completely polished off. (Just for good graces, I usually set aside a handful for Jack just so I don't feel too guilty.)


As long as we are on the topic of food from Trader Joes, I thought I would list a few of my favorite items for my friends that wonder what the heck I buy there because I used to wonder the same thing. If you have a favorite item, please share.

I LOVE:

* This black bean dip with tortilla chips!


* TJ's brand Light string cheese (firm and salty...mmm)
* Dried unsweetened mangoes
* Marcona Almonds (expensive!)
* Brown rice (in microwave packets...so easy)
* Carrot cake
* Pineapple salsa (cook chicken in it, wrap in corn tortilla with fresh avocados...oh mamma!)
* Red Thai Curry sauce (thanks Fawn!)
* Butternut squash
* Sweet tomatoes
* Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Soup
* Korean Bul-go-gi? (BBQ beef)

and....This marinade.

I seriously need to check out Trader Joes to see what all of the fuss is about.

I was just dreaming about trader joes the other day but unfortunately the next TJ is thousands of miles away! Oh Man I loved everything at that store. I would eat their sushi a lot. The veggie booty I am also guilty of partaking of in mass quanities.

Love the dried apricots! My friend sent me some one year from CA--(Utah always light years behind) and I became a Trader Joe's fan just for those! One day we'll all live in California...
