**Updated the wiki with a lot of new stores which are now open or opening soon. A lot of them are on the east coast.**
The TJ Pumkin Bread is simply wonderful. It was nice and moist with a great flavor. It's nice to eat as is or you can make a cream cheese icing to pour over it.
Wasn't fussed though on the TJ Gingerbread as the ginger was too overpowering.
The TJ Chicken Teriyaki from the frozen foods section is another winner. Just chop up the veggies of your choice, or use the TJ frozen stir fry veggies and sautee them in a pan with some of the sauce. The chicken is prepared in the microwave, per the instructions on the package and comes out great. We have it usually once a week.
"Happiness and depression are both feelings, just like joy and anger. It's not feelings that give us problems. It's what we do with them that makes the difference."
"When I was 5 years old, my mom always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
We purchased a turkey from Trader Joe's. I've never had a fresh (never frozen) turkey, so I will update on how it is after the holiday. I purchased the Vanilla bread mix and just added wild frozen blue berries and it was great. I love how little these quick bread mixes cost.
Last night, we were short on time and I picked up a pizza dough, a trio of sandwich meat (the packet that has salami, mortadella, and prosciutto), and pepperoni. I made a quick white cheese sauce (with herbs) on the stove and wrapped it all in the dough with mozzarella. It was ready in 20 minutes and we had a wonderful Stromboli for less than $10.00. Hubby loved it and we even have left-overs. I don't know what I would do without Trader Joe's. They even had herbs for sale (live plants) Rosemary, Thyme, and Sage. It was $7.99 and all 3 come in a pot (the pot comes with a ceramic Turkey and a sign that says Turkey Stuffing) and I plan to keep it until Christmas.

I Trader Joe's peanut butter. You can't beat it for the taste and price. Also the Mini Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers are very good.
We go to Trader Joes just for the peanut butter and jelly. It is nice to be able to pay less for them, but not have all of the crap they throw into everything at the regular grocery store. You can't pick up a jar of jelly or preserves without high fructose corn syrup in it period! I only wish they'd make a concord grape kind.
Great TJ recipe! I fed 6 people for $20 with this and still had leftovers:
Mediterranean style flat bread (9 in a package, I buy 2 for feeding 6 people)
Cous Cous (plain style, in a box)
Taskiki (cucumber yogurt, next to the hummus in TJ)
Cucumber (hot house, or the "sweet" type)
1) Cook the Cous Cous (takes about 10-15 minutes for the cous cous to soften)
2) In a small saute pan, put 2 TB of olive oil spread around the pan, on med/high heat and put in a piece of the flat bread. Cook 45 seconds on each side until light brown (careful not to burn it).
3) Place the bread on a plate and add a thin layer of hummus and Taskiki
4) Add cous cous and feta cheese (so the loose pieces stick in the hummus and taskiki)
5) Top with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and spinach
Its almost like a Mediterranean tostada. Once you make one you will understand how to make the next one better, and can even fold it like a taco, or just pile everything on and eat it with a fork and knife!
