Trader Joe’s

If ya haven’t figured out Trader Joe’s is my love. It is like the grocery store version of Target. I go in for one thing and walk out with everything. Everything I buy is organic and is so much more AFFORDABLE than produce at the local Kroger’s or HEB.  Other than Trader Joe’s, for food I shop at Kroger. I love to coupon and Kroger’s is my hook up, but I tend to only buy bacon, maybe fresh gulf shrimp, laundry & cleaning supplies, and my boy’s foods they love. (they love Oreos and chocolate milk).

*Oh side note, when I say “boys” I mean my three-year old son and my Husband, who has the diet of a three year old.

I did get some bacon at Kroger’s along with shrimp this week. I also tried those pepperoni’s and to be honest, they weren’t my fav. and probably won’t be buying that kind again. It had added smoke flavor, which I didn’t read on the package, and the taste wasn’t for me. With the Texan’s and Cowboy’s playing this weekend, my husband wanted to grill! I had one HB patty with some yellow mustard, pickles and mixed greens. It was fabulous. Along with that I did treat myself to TWO jalapeno poppers with bacon and dairy free cream cheese. YUM.  I forgot to take a picture of this cream cheese, but this is the one I got from Trader Joe’s. (Thanks google for the pic) I purchased it for $2.49trader-joes-vegan-cream-cheese-review.jpg
