Lynda’s Trader Joes Mini Haul

I’m mainly doing this because I want to talk about all the awesome things I got at Trader Joe’s when I went the other day out of sheer boredom.  Yes, I grocery shop sometimes when I’m bored.  And no, these are not the healthiest things I could have purchased, but that’s ok because there are many, many more unhealthy things out there.  But they are awesome, and delicious, so I decided to share with you!

World’s Puffiest White Cheddar Corn Puffs

2014-01-04 16.40.59

Can we say nom?  Yes we can.  I pretty much like white cheddar anything, and I grab these any time I go into Trader Joe’s.

Speculoo’s Cookie and Cocoa Swirl

2014-01-04 16.22.17

Um, why am I only just now discovering this ish?!  It is my new favorite thing.  And I’m now going to come up with so many random recipes to use this with because I want to eat it all day, everyday.  You just wait and see!

 Trader Joe’s Organic Half & Half

2014-01-04 16.41.09

Ok, this is the most boring thing on the list.  Mainly because it’s just a regular “I have to buy this because I’m at the grocery store” item.  But while it’s here, I’d just like to point out that organic half and half, as well as organic milk, actually lasts a lot longer than the regular stuff.  I used to always end up throwing some of it away, until I started buying the organic kind.

Pork Gyoza Potstickers

2014-01-04 16.41.38

These are great as a quick lunch or dinner!  Or just as an appetizer if you’re serving a lot of people.  And they are under $4.00 for a bag.  I made them yesterday for lunch, and my boyfriend, roommate, and I all ate some, and still had a few left (we had fried rice as well though).  I personally think they are just as good as the ones I can get from the Asian market in my area.

 Dark Chocolate Roasted Pistachio Toffee

2014-01-04 16.42.05 2014-01-04 16.42.12

I love me some toffee!  And honestly, my reason for heading to Trader Joe’s out of boredom was to pick up their Milk Chocolate English Toffee, however, apparently all of Raleigh decided they were going there for that sole reason as well…so when I got there, they were sold out of them!  Not cool bro.  But that was ok, because I got to try these instead, and boy were they delicious!  My box is gone already, and now I want to go back and get lots more!

12 Macarons a la parisienne

2014-01-04 16.42.38

I have this new-found obsession with macarons, and trying to hunt down some delicious ones in my area, but when I was in Trader Joe’s I saw these in the frozen section, so I decided to try them.  They are also delicious as well, and if I can’t find a good spot to get fresh ones, I’ll definitely be picking these up again!  I will say, however, that you have to know 30 minutes before your macaron craving begins, so you can let them thaw.

2014-01-06 19.27.58So yeah, those are the things I got when I went to Trader Joe’s, and now I’m sitting here eating my delicious macarons after letting them thaw for the 30 minutes it took me to write this post! 🙂

Bows and Arrows,
