Celebrating the opening of our first Trader Joe’s!
Excitement is in the air around here. Our first ever Trader Joe’s is opening tomorrow! It’s time for a major happy dance. Since I’ve only been able to go to a TJ’s every now and then out of town, I’m really looking forward to going whenever the urge strikes and not have to stock up like there’s no tomorrow. Now I’ll be able to get whatever I want instead of just buying the dry products due to traveling. Watch out TJ’s; I’m only 15 minutes away so you’ll be seeing me a lot. Bring on the cookie butter, pound plus chocolate bars and more! You might say I’m a little excited…like a kid at Christmas!
To celebrate, I’ve asked some of my blogging friends to share recipes using at least one product from Trader Joe’s. All the bases are covered here: breakfast, salads, entrees and sweets. You can be sure I’ll be creating more recipes after trips to TJ’s too. Enjoy this collection.
Let me know what your favorite TJ’s products are. I need some recommendations to add to my growing list.
