Lets hear it for the boy, lets give the boy a hand...

This week our friend J-Dawg is leaving the lou to go get his edjumication on.. in honor of him and his history of being a Trader Joe's pusher, I give you my top ten favorite things of Trader Joes.
1. Meatless Meatballs - reminds me of veal parmigiana texture. I'm a big fan and I pair them with their egg noodles.. yum!
2. Turkish Apricots - as well as the whole dried fruit area, its good, its easy to eat and its a hellllll of a lot cheaper than the box store's options for dried fruits plus they have some interesting choices like dried hibiscus flowers are good. I used to eat a ton of their cinnamon dried apples... self control didn't come into play much at all.
3. Framboise Lambic, while not a TJ's product I like that I can get it there when its not sold out due to awesomeness
4. Nuts that are reasonably priced...ahem...say what you will
5. Bread both the garlic loaf and the olive loaf make me a happy camper, the garlic nan is pretty sweet too.
6. Their frozen shepherds Pie
7. Frozen breaded eggplant.
8. Frozen green beans.. They are frozen fresh and make the meal so much better.
9. Small plastic square containers of goodness... chocolate cover raspberry jells, espresso beans etc.. all f-ing good.
10.The whole damn snack section. So many delicious snacks with a lot of healthy options as well as interesting twists. Boo loves the wasabi tamarind almonds, I love the kettle corn, I have some pumpernickel pretzels in my desk right now.
So peace out Jasper-Dawg... we will miss you but are excited for your future endeavors... last time you left we all got closer, who knows what this time will bring. When you see zombies, think of me :) Rawr....brainzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Since leaving St. Louis, I really, really, really miss Trader Joe's. There's a small organic food store that a friend's brother works at, so I try to go there, but, damn it, it's just NOT the same as Trader Joe's.

Oh man, Trader Joe's hummus.... drool. Gone Bananas! I'll take two boxes, please. Their store-brand chips, especially the BBQ flavor, mmmmm. And sometimes they have lychee or rambutan. Oh man, I could go on and on and on and on some more....

Hopefully you all can get by in the Brentwood store without me :D. And I love y'all. Speaking of zombies, I'm serious about coming back for Zombieland.
