Ah the holiday season! It must mean it’s time to buy some sparkling wine! Here at Club Trader Joe’s HQ we always seem to have a bottle of two of sparkling wine in the fridge ready to drink.

Trader Joe’s Uncured Beef Bacon Review – When I first saw this, I thought Trader Joe’s was joking. Beef Bacon! There is no such thing! I’m pretty sure that you are only supposed to call something “bacon” if it’s from a pig, not a turkey or cow. Like I say in my blog subtitle, I eat this stuff so you don’t have to!

Now that we have two growing boys, they can’t seem to get enough of them for breakfast and I’m always looking for something quick to make in the morning before we head out to the school bus. Together with something with some protein (Trader Joe’s usually has a great selection of eggs for all budgets), that is usually enough for my 7 and 9 year old boys for the morning.
Here is another quickie review. I picked this up at lunch today while shopping for stuff for pizza I’m making tonight. (I’ll rate Trader Joe’s Pizza dough after the holidays). I needed a quick bite, and wanted something with turkey. I’m starting to feel the itch to eat… Read More »Trader Joe’s Turkey Sandwich with Cranberry and Pecan stuffing
