Grocery Heaven


I love grocery stores.  Maybe it’s my interest in food security of maybe just that I love food but I love grocery stores.  While my current location has a good grocery store (Wegman’s) it lacks a few important grocery places: Trader Joe’s and Costco.

So while I was visiting the lovely fella, I knew I had to stop by Trader Joe’s and Costco.

Ok let’s be realistic, the only reason I went to Costco was to get frozen yogurt at their concession stand… but I also bought…

A 4lb bag of quinoa and 2 huge jars of artichokes, only one jar is photographed because the other jar is pretty much empty…

I have a hunch the December Recipe Challenge is going to include a lot of quinoa.

Then on to Trader Joe’s, since I had a 4 hour drive ahead of me I could only load up on non-perishable goods.

I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s Marinara and BBQ sauce!  Sooo good! I also bought some peanut butter filled pretzels.  Usually those are off limits for me (aka I eat them all in a day) but since Trader Joe’s is a treat, I decided to splurge!

I know it’s sort of cheesy that I hit up grocery stores while far from home, but what can I say… I love food 🙂

Do you have a favorite grocery store?

    Shopping for groceries is exciting! I absolutely love it as well. I don’t have a fave grocery store but the two big stores over here (migros and coop) are stocking up their organic products like crazy. So I always get excited when I find new goods :). I love shopping for produce the most.
    I wish I could try that pumpkin butter..
    The photo of the artichoke hearts reminded me that I should get some as soon as possible!!
