Trader Joe’s Haul

Hi friends!  I don’t know about you, but I love when other people post their Trader Joe’s hauls.  All Trader Joe’s are not created equal – mine for example is one of the smaller ones.  Sad face.  With that said, I always still find plenty to fill my cart no matter the season.

This what I bought on a quick sashay through on my way to dog sit for Spring Break. 84929492-3D1E-48B5-B82D-D7A2430DBC8B

Shopping List from the refrigerated section:

  • ready-made lasagna (not pictured because I already cooked it & had it for dinner)
  • carnitas with salsa verde burrito
  • peanut & crispy noodle salad kit (I LOVE an Asian salad)
  • veggies & greens salad kit
  • crunchy slaw ready-made salad
  • lemon chicken & arugula ready-made salad (my favorite)
  • garlic hummus snack packs
  • arugula & parmigiano reggiano ravioli
  • Italian sausage & 4 cheese ravioli (so good!)

Shopping List from the freezer section:

  • orange chicken bowl
  • riced cauliflower stir fry
  • beef & broccoli
  • cheese & tomato pizza

Shopping List from the shelves:

  • chocolate glazed donuts (not pictured as I hid them from the dogs)
  • thumb print cookies
  • pancake bread (breakfast or dessert?)
  • spaghetti squash
  • salsa verde
  • TJ’s marinara sauce
  • corn & poblano chowder
  • white cheddar puffs
  • elote corn chip dippers (run don’t walk for these!)

I went shopping on Friday, it’s now Monday, & I’ve gone through three quarters of the bag of the elote chips.  Y’all, they taste exactly like street corn or Mexi-Corn Dip (if you’re Southern, you know what this dip is).  I ate these with guacamole & pretty much found Mecca.7065EEBB-A1F7-430B-ACC3-C863524A2442For those of you who can’t handle the heat, you will think these chips are kinda spicy as they do have a kick.  I’ll be stock piling these for Corona Virus…that’s the one thing we need right?

Now, for all the sweets…  I don’t typically buy sweets, and when I do they are usually sour straws or something not too sweet like shortbread; however, 2020 has been the year of chocolate craving so far.  Great.  I kinda did a lot of impulse shopping in Trader Joe’s this time…I’m lying, every time.  Every.  Single.  Time.  To be honest, I only had shortbread cookies on my list, but I think it was a Fall/Winter item as they were nowhere to be found.  Oh, the devastation.

What are some of your favorite things from Trader Joe’s?  Leave a comment with your recs.  About 2/3 of my list were things I have never tried.  Anyone else go grocery shopping & then decide you’re too tired to cook after that strenuous hour in the store? Yeah, me neither.

Anyway, I hope y’all have a great week, & make sure to was your hands often!  Until Friday…

Kiss Hug,
