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?
