OMG!! I went for the first time on Saturday and LOVED it!! I spent $95!!! The place reminds me of a country store without the chachkis (sp?!).

Dan was here for the weekend and on Sunday he spent HOURS making something called Dhansak Curry. We got all the ingredients there except for the lentils and peas - they don't sell them!!?? (and some other stuff too!)

Here's my haul:

Onions - the most perfect onions I've ever seen. No spots, no layers peeling off, no sprouts on the bottom
Boneless Skinless chicken thighs
Butternut squash
garlic, ginger, coriander, lemon, cucumber
whole milk yogurt
coconut oil
pumpkin seeds (shelled, roasted and salted!)
Some awesome artisan crusty white bread
organic chicken wings
basmati rice
FIVE tubs of cookies!! I LOVE the "Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip" TJs cookies~
Two tubs of mini peanut butter cups (Mmmm)

There may have been a few other things, but I can't remember.

It's not a place I could go often as I couldn't afford it, but I will definitely go back!!

And by the way, the curry was AMAZING!! I brought leftovers to work and people raved!!

I finally made something I picked up at Trader Joe's weeks ago and just had in the freezer. I bought a few different things when a friend was coming over for dinner, and just let her pick between things. So this beef and broccoli was just sitting in my freezer.

I just made it and it ROCKS. I thought it was just a regular beef and broccoli, but read the bag more closely and saw that it was Spicy, Crispy Beef and Broccoli. The crispy beef blows my mind. Then the spicy sauce that goes along with everything is nice and zingy and complements perfectly. And the broccoli is good too.

Recommend 100%.

Man, I'm so jealous. I've heard so many wonderful things about Trader Joe's, but I've never had the opportunity to visit one (the states I've lived in just didn't have it).

I do hope they get one in Texas soon, but I've heard it might not happen until 2013 (if it happens at all).

I finally visited Trader Joe's for the first time during a recent trip to Los Angeles. I absolutely LOVED it and cannot wait until they open up the planned location in Houston.

Favorites: Macaroni and cheese bites, Brie en croute and, of course, Two Buck Chuck. I think I drank about $8 worth of wine the first night!

Took a run to TJs today and it was a madhouse! Probably should have gone at 8 AM and not at noon.

Bought a bunch of stuff, so I have no regrets. But still I blame...(below)

Same here! My only concern is the proposed location and parking. I want a big WalMart Supercenter type of store, this is Texas after all.

I love Whole Foods (or as they call it "Whole Paycheck" lol. It's been a while since I've posted on this thread so this might be a duplicate but here goes. Whole Foods makes this yummy cranberry-walnut bread. It is dense and slightly sweet. I love it toasted with cream cheese and sprinkled with a little Splenda.. no accounting for taste huh? Well one day hubby decided to makes frnch toast with it and OMG..it was soooo good. The some mentioned a french toast casserole (the one The Pioneer Woman makes) and it was almost orgasmic... seriously that was such a decadent breakfast. I am going to Whole Foods on Wednesday (the day they bake the cranberry-walnut bread). I see a casserole in my future.

Happy Holidays to everyone!!

I shop nearly exclusively at aldi BUT sometimes I need special things from TJs.
I loooooove their chicken serenada. It's frozen and so good.
Also the chicken gorgonzola and another indian variety they have but the
Serenada is amazing... steam some rice or couscous and you have a bonefied meal for two that does not feel like frozen food at all.If someone could recreate it for me I would be forever grateful. Complex flavours there
Also, triple ginger cookies. YUM

Trader Joe's was out of Wild Argentine Red Shrimp yesterday, and I'm so bummed. I love that stuff. Next time I see it I'm stocking half the freezer with it.
