I've said it before and I will say it again - I LOVE Trader Joe's. If you are lucky enough to live by a Trader Joe's, you need to check it out.
They have a great selection of produce. Lots of organic produce too.
Check out this selection of hummus. My personal favorite - Edamame Hummus - it's awesome.
They also have a huge selection of cheeses,
I love their Sparkling Water so much that I have to buy it by the case.
When you go to Trader Joe's, you need to browse through their wine and beer department. I recommend the Pinot Grigio and the Cabernet Sauvignon. It's hard to believe that a bottle of wine that costs less than $5.00 can be so good.
Some of the things that I bought on my latest trip to Trader Joe's: Almond Butter, Dried Mango slices, Greek Yogurt and Butternut Squash Triangoli
My other favorite Trader Joe's finds: Chocolate and Raspberry Trail mix, Lite Kettle Corn Popcorn, Frozen Fish and Mini Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches.
By the way if you ever want to completely embarrass your family - take a big camera with you to the grocery store and start snapping pictures. They might just hide.
