Trader Joes Goodies

Happy Wednesday!


I finished my 7K tempo run with success this AM. The only dumb thing I did was eat an apple right before. For most that wouldn’t be a problem, but apples have traces of sorbitol. So you can guess what happened – another uncomfy run. I finished the run, but the last 3K were brutal and now I am paying the price with my stomach being off. I need to learn to stick to bananas!

I’m off to a friend’s house for dinner soon – so I shall make this short. P came home from California last night and arrived with a box of Trader Joe’s goodies. My wish list was just cookie butter and chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels – but because he had to check a bag, he decided to get as many things as he could. Sadly, they were out of the pretzels! Darn! Also, some of my items did not survive the trip.

This is the haul of Trader Joe’s Stuff that survived:




In my haul was:

– Various BBQ sauces

– Masala Simmer Sauce

– Yellow Curry Sauce

– Crunch Cookie Butter

– Cookie and Cocoa Swirl Butter (this one will probably not last long – yummy!)

– Chocolate bars with caramel and some with cookie spread

– Hot Sauce

– Strawberry preserves

– Blueberry preserves


What did not survive:

Cookie Butter, Grape Preserves and another Indian Sauce





Don’t those pictures make your tummy sad?  I bet grape preserves and cookie butter would go so well together.  I have put in a complaint with Air Canada about the way our baggage was handled. This is the third consecutive trip to LAX that we have had to make a complaint. This time, the damage was a bit on the ridiculous side. It looked like someone had played football with the box. As you can see in the pictures, the glass isn’t just cracked, but completely destroyed. They were not even at the sides of the box – they were in the middle. In my complaint I did not ask for another coupon, but actually asked for another jar of cookie butter. Let’s see if that happens! (I doubt it).

Anyways – when I am in Toronto in a couple of weeks, I plan on heading down to the Buffalo Trader Joe’s for a little shopping. I have had P and my parents do my Trader Joe’s shopping for me, but I haven’t stepped foot in a store in over two years. I’ve always gone by what my American friends like at TJ’s and reading various blog posts. If you have  Trader Joe’s near you – you are so lucky!

Perhaps it will be time for another giveaway??

    This post made me hungry!! How annoying that a few things were damaged. It’s scary how luggage and packages get treated. Hope they send you more cookie butter 😉
    I need to check out TJ next time I’m in Phoenix- I’ve never been!

      You should! They have so many neat things and it is very affordable.

      I wish I was closer to one!
