Trader Joe’s Tuesday

Jul 30, 2013 by

Today you get a two-fer on Trader Joe’s Tuesday; the summer joys of organic cherries and non gmo sweet corn.

Last night for dinner, we enjoyed two summer favorites courtesy of Trader Joes.

I was excited to see organic cherries yesterday while shopping. They were priced at $4.99/pound. They were delicious and there is nothing more summer-like than grilling chicken on the grill and eating cherries and spitting the pits off the deck (not that I was doing that, really!)

I am really struggling with the presence of gmo sweet corn now. I believe that is all they sell at WalMart now.

Trader Joe’s sells non gmo sweet corn for $.49/ear. It was sweet and delicious!

Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Organic Honey

Jul 23, 2013 by

A staple in my pantry is Trader Joe’s Raw Organic Honey.

Sure, I buy honey from my local farmer’s market, but the convenience and quality of Trader Joe’s honey is wonderful. I used it in yesterday’s recipe, BLT quinoa salad.

I was curious about the benefits of raw honey and found a few interesting sites if you are interested in looking further. I never knew it could help heal a wound! I will have to give that a try.

My pantry is always stocked
with Trader Joe’s Sunflower Seeds!

In yesterday’s post, I shared a recipe for basil pesto made with sunflower seeds instead of pine nuts. I use sunflower seeds on my salads and often by the handful.

Trader Joe’s has the seeds available with and without salt. They are delicious and you should pick some up today!

Trader Joe’s Tuesday: Organic American Cheese

Jun 25, 2013 by

organic cheese clices

One of our staples in the deli drawer used to be Kraft American Cheese Slices.

Luckily, Trader Joe’s carries an organic replacement of this staple….Trader Joe’s Organic American Slices.

I think the cheese tastes good and goes great in a gluten free grilled cheese. I also used it in the Chebe Calzone I posted a few weeks ago.

That is all I have for today; have a great Tuesday!
