Friday Favorites: Trader Joe's

Friday, November 30, 2012

If you're lucky enough to live next to a Trader Joe's* you, like me, probably already have your favorite go-to products. If you aren't that lucky, well, you should move. Joking/not joking. Today—in celebration of Utah getting its very own Trader Joe's— here's a list of my favorite items that perpetually fill my grocery cart with happiness. 
1. Ginger Almond & Cashew Cereal. Generally speaking I'm not a cold cereal person, but this crunchy goodness changed my mind. Spicy cereal might just be my new favorite. Besides, who says cereal is just for breakfast?

2. Roasted Garlic Marinara. This is our go-to pasta sauce. Affordable and flavorful. I generally have a couple bottles on hand. 

3. Thai Red Curry Sauce. Shut up! This stuff is addicting. Dinner has never been easier. Saute your choice of meat/tofu and set aside. Next saute a few veggies (we like zucchini, red bell peppers, carrots, and onions), then add your meat back to the pot. Pour the thai red curry sauce over everything and serve warm over quinoa or couscous. Simple and delicious.

4. Chocolate European Style Yogurt. This yogurt has a fascinating flavor combination that reminds me of thin chocolate mousse with a hint of zingy lemon. And it doesn't produce nearly as much food-guilt as a decadent piece of chocolate cake.  

Know what else I LOVE about this neighborhood market? I like that the store has a no-questions-asked return policy. Buy a cereal that tastes like wallpaper? Return it. No judgement. No questions. And frankly that's kind of awesome.
