I thought who I was heading to Trader Joe’s yesterday morning at 8:00 am in my attempt to beat the blizzard crazy crowds only to find out that my Trader Joe’s opens at 9:00 am NOT 8:00 am.
No problem though, I drove across the street to ShopRite where I had some shopping to do anyway.
- Martin’s Whole Wheat Potato Bread < – because my child has decided Ezekiel Bread is for losers
- Tropicana Orange Juice and Fruit Punch
- Frozen Vegetables
- Red Sweet Potatoes
- FRESH Blueberries < – Highlight of my week!
- Ellio’s Pizza
If you didn’t grow up on Ellio’s pizza then you totally missed out on a yummy (and processed) childhood. I decided to be a cool mom by getting something fun to eat during the blizzard so Ellio’s, the frozen pizza of my youth, was my choice. Turns out, it isn’t as bad as I thought when I read the ingredients.
I also stocked up on the red sweet potatoes (aside from color, the red, white and Japanese sweet potatoes all seem the same to me) and some plantains!
I made sure to text Michele immediately since she is the queen of cooking plantains figuring she would tell me what I should do with them first.
After chatting, Trader Joe’s was finally open for business.
- Almond Milk
- Mozzarella Cheese
- Queso Dip < – I would never eat this because I do not like cheese dips but I think my son would like it, hashtag blizzardeats
- Organic Mini Pancakes
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks
- Organic Eggs
- Organic Chick Peas
- Organic Spinach
I was so excited to see giant cauliflowers in stock! They haven’t had cauliflower in forever.
So, since we are expecting a blizzard (which obviously means I am not running the half marathon on Sunday), I plan to be snowed in and busy in the kitchen. I love to bake during a storm but will probably cook some stuff too!
I am considering the follow recipes for dinner over the weekend and Monday:
Beef Taco Bowls < – my son loved this when I made it and asked that I make it again
What will I do with the cauliflower?!
Beyond Monday, the rest of the week may look like this:
Tuesday – Pizza Night
Wednesday – out for dinner
Thursday – From the Freezer (veggie burgers, meatless meatballs or chicken nuggets for my son)
Friday – out for dinner
What I may bake:
Doughy Peanut Butter Cookies – A no bake recipe actually!
Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies – I have a lot of bananas at the moment and always think about this cookie recipe I developed a few months ago.
Have a great weekend!stocking up for the blizard & dinner plan #groceries #foodshop #blizzard #traderjoes… Click To Tweet
