What's for dinner....Trader Joe's!

Last night...we had this for dinner.
It was the sample item at Trader Joe's!
We added some sweet potato fries and cole slaw.
So yummy!
Every time I am in Trader Joe's, I am always spying on the nearby shoppers to see
 what they have in their buggy. I sometimes ask,
"Have you tried that before?"... "What else do you love?"
If you shop at Joe's...grab some battered shrimp!
And let me know...what you love at Trader Joe's too!

Happy Weekend!


  1. Now that's a dinner I would enjoy!
    I have never been to a Trader Joe's...never seen one around here.

  2. We don't have a Trader Joe's near us. I think the closest one is about an hour or so away. And, I've never been to one either. But, I keep hearing awesome things!

    My first thought when I saw your picture is that my son Edison would think that was the most awesome dinner EVER! My boy loves shrimp. On special occassions if we have shrimp and cocktail sauce, we have to keep a close eye on him because he would literally eat all of them!

  3. I love Trader Joe's and was just there on Monday. I love their frozen stir fry veggies. I add chicken and a few more veggies and it is one tasty "Chinese" meal (and easy).
    I'm going to try the shrimp...thanks.

  4. ooooh, I'm excited to know about this one b/c my kids both love shrimp! In fact, one of our most favorite TJ's items is their frozen coconut shrimp, have you tried that one too?

    Other TJ's favorites are the bakery fresh Tuscan Pane loaf (toasted and buttered = yum!), the guacamole (sold in twin packs), the champagne pear vinaigrette (bottled and sold in the lettuce fridge), and their Crunchy Curls (sort of like a curly "chip" made with potato and lentils - love them!). What else is on YOUR Trader Joe's list, I'd love to swap ideas!!

  5. I love the Trader Joe’s Pastry Bites with Feta Cheese & Caramelized Onions. I usually serve them as an appetizer at gatherings. Now, all my friends request that I "make" them. I feel a little guilty that they are so easy. I have confessed that they are TJ's. :)

  6. No Trader Joe's around here but it still looks yummy.

  7. Yummo! I love Traders, we don't have one close by but there is one where I get my hair cut so I try to swing by if I can. I ask people things like that all the time at Whole Foods too, some of that stuff can be intimidating to me. I'm definitely not afraid to approach a fellow shopper.

  8. Oh how I wish we had a Trader Joe's...or a Whole Foods....or SOMETHING like that!
    Sounds oh so yummy.
    Have a happy day

  9. I'll have to try that battered shrimp. I love Trader Joe's - the entire store! Have you tried their dried cranberries and chopped pecans infused with rosemary? Heaven... I could go on, so I think the question would be what DON'T I like there? Answer: nothing.

  10. I just bought their bacon wrapped Scallops!! =) I will let you know if we love them!! =)

    We did just finish off the Gluten Free Brownies I made from the Trader Joe's Mix... YUM... can't even tell they were Gluten Free!! =)

  11. LOVE Trader Joes!! Don't love the huge crowds and difficult parking. ;)

    We love the Mandarin Chicken and Breaded Eggplant (both frozen). Sooo yummy! Their veggie corn dogs are really good too. My kids can't tell the difference.

  12. I don't think Trader Joes exist over here.

  13. Don't you love the samples at TJ's?? Was there today picking up my flowers!

  14. I'm not a fan of shrimp, but my husband loves it! I really wish we had Trader Joe's here in Texas. Hopefully, one day!
