Some of my recent finds at Trader Joe's.
Some new, some not so new....
crunchy cookie butter! oh the baking possibilities.
anyone tried this? might get a couple for hubby.
these weren't too bad. much better than ramen noodles. plus rice noodle is a better taste.
in the frozen section. they are small. too small for the price--I could eat the whole box in one sitting.
anyone tried this? love the addition of brie, which makes me think to make a brie & pasta at home.
FINALLY! sweet potato tots. can't wait to try them.
small little pre-cooked pot roasts in a bag. weird. small. afraid to try...you go first. lol
the price can't be beat. much cheaper than whole foods. has anyone used it? tell me if it's good?
more pre-cooked beef in a bag. still, afraid to try.
these were decent. get the tzatziki sauce to dip them in!
these two together = food harmony
anyone tried these danish pancakes aka ebelskivers
this was good--needs more peanut butter inside.
they were ok. not very onion-like tasting. I want to create my own now, with far less oil.
always weary of shelf-staple tofu. anyone tried this?
these are good. My homemade coconut truffles are much better though.
not new, but I finally tried it and it was really good. The price is good too.
these were the 'sample of the day' and they were ok. a little dry, but good.
anyone tried this?
I found it hilarious that our trader joe's (cape cod) sells lobster tails at a ridiculous inflated price.
A couple of my friends got this and loved it. You?
As I've mentioned before, during the winters I tend to get a little bit of SAD (seasonal affective disorder), and while I take the fish oil, the Vit D3, etc...I haven't tried the "sun lights" yet.
I was hesitant about most of them until I came across a totally different kind of sun light that mimics the "blue sky of summer". Did some research for reviews and most of them were positive I was more than happy to give this a go.
I did not shine this on the cat. He was merely posing for the photo--ha!
About a week into using the light, I have to say I have noticed a huge improvement in my mood, and an even bigger increase in my energy levels.
The light is by Philips: Philips GoLite Blu. Sold on amazon. But look for the reviews on youtube.com.
It's a great, portable size. Hard to photograph when it's on since the light is bright, but this photo illustrates how small it is.
Don't use this at night, best to use in the morning. Give it a couple days to start feeling a difference.
I was at IKEA the other day and saw this wonderful bed workbar.
Isn't this the best idea?
The prices aren't that bad.
This is perfect for all our shoes in the garage. Well built too.
For this price? Definitely getting a few for the office. Excellent way to hide all that crap and 'instantly' make the office look cleaner.
I use these for holding my dishes in the kitchen. Five years later, and they are still going strong.
Can't remember the price of this, but it was cheap.
Would be great for a tv or play room right?
This is a dressing room model at IKEA. Love how more modern IKEA has become.
Finally took hubby (for the first time) to Five Guys Burgers.
Let's just say he was a happy man.
