Adventures at TJ's

The Roo-girl and I have a new passion:

The specialty grocery store known as Trader Joe's.

If you aren't lucky enough to live in one of the nine states where Trader Joe's live, then I pity you.

After all, TJ's is the home of such wondrous treats as Candy Cane Joe-Joe's (something NO household should be without for the holidays) and some incredible peanut butter cups that give Reese's a run for their money.

It's also the home of organic treats and vegetarian and vegan delights.

Roo and I like it there. We are relatively recent converts to the awesomeness of Trader Joe's, but we are fervent in our enthusiasm.

Stopping there after cheer practice is a frequent pleasure.

This weekend, though, we went just because.

The journey started with this question, as Roo scoured the shelves for her favorite honey-roasted snack:

"Where are my nuts???"

And I promptly burst into hysterics ... because I AM a 12-year-old boy, after all.

That's funny. And I honestly have no comment I can make that would add anything.

So I'm just going to sit here and giggle.

I cannot live without Trader Joe's. Now that North Carolina has 6, I've decided that I can continue to live here. Gone are the days of asking my mom to send my favorites to me from Monterey!

I still have to drive an hour to get to a TJ's, but as you know, it's SOOOO worth it!

Righ now I'm out of my TJ's pickles, so there's a road-trip planned!

I try to love Trader Joe's, but I just can't. I'm more of a Whole Foods whore myself. Maybe if I could find Roo's nuts, I would change my mine . . .

I love Trader Joes, especially their frozen food. They also have the only packaged guacamole I think is worth eating. And I totally would have laughed too.

I must confess that the first thing I thought of was 'that's what she said.' I'm an adolescent too.

I am a fan of Trader Joe's, but tend to stay away from the nuts. ;)
