food, home, travel

A little post vacay nostalgia… Sort of…

I finally feel like recovery from California, (and the EVIL stomach virus of the vacation) is a possibility… I thought I’d take the opportunity to show you some souvenirs that I brought home. 
 gifts for the girls, of course…
 For the husband’s yummy saturday morning pancakes…
 Stocked up! yum! 
 Amanda’s favorite…

 For me. I’m selfish… 
 our little luxury of the trip… 
 the BEST cocoa, in my opinion. 
 DOUBLE YUM!!!
 hello, necessity… 
 the BEST Soy Sauce on the market…
 *swoon*
 Chw’s… 
 Eat your heart out, chips ahoy! 
 Gen…
 Nana…
 DIVINE snackability…
 I LOVE these silly fig bars… 
 hard to read, from the dumb flash, but these are Gorgonzola crackers, and let me just say: OH MY GOSH, these are FANTASTC! Amazing with cheese, amazing with hummus… just GOOD yumminess… 
 Pasta, gnocchi and more pasta… 
 i am selfish here and won’t share. this is my FAVORITE Salad dressing ever- turned on to it by a good, kind and generous friend!
 Chw’s… 
 Our hard working freezer bag which, in a cooler full of ice, did it’s job AWESOMELY Well for those 7 hours! 
 BEST Biryani I’ve ever had! 
 YUM!!! 
Even yummier… 
So bored yet? I’m sorry… i just love (and miss) Trader Joe’s so much. Everything you saw here, we bought multiple amounts of… We had a ridiculous amount of food, which filled up the back of my SUV and we only spent $178. It’s ridiculous… The things we got would last us 4-6 months… 
I am hoping to go back to TJ’s early in the fall to stock up on soups and a few more things. (LOVE their soups!) 
Are you a TJ’s shopper??? What are your favorite Trader Joe’s things?

  1. We don't have a TJs but they have wonderful snacks and you picked up a few I really love. Lately I've been loving their roasted seaweed snack, their frozen balsalmic veggies, and their frozen garlic fries. Mmmm! I also love their cinnamon bread and they have this sparkling wine that it awesome!

  2. oh, my gosh! that's a haul. if you ever want anything– let me know! i can ship non-perishables to you! my favorite thing at TJs are their frozen treats– like, chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches… oh boy.

  3. I used to be a big Trader Joe's girl. When I moved away from one, I would drive 2 hours every other week to stock up. I found that I could "live" with the regular grocery store, but I definitely take a trip there when I visit my parents.

  4. Jen, We will go out of our way just to stock up at least twice a year… if we found our favorite things locally, through a different brand- that would be different. We just can't seem to!
