This is the first in a series called "Why I love Trader Joes more than just about anything." I'll randomly feature two items when the mood strikes.
Today's first fabulous item is the Melange a Trois:
This item is a one-pound bag of frozen bell pepper strips. It costs $1.69, which is less than you'd pay for the whole peppers at the grocery store. They don't cheap out and use mostly green peppers which I appreciate. It's frozen, so you can whip it out anytime and add it to whatever you're cooking. I use it with pierogies, enchiladas, in soups, stir-fries, and anywhere else I can stuff them. For you meat-eaters I could see them in ground beef for tacos or hamburger helper, or sauteed with veggies over chicken. Heck, add them to whatever you want - it's $1.69 for the bag! Wish they were organic, but you can't have everything. I bought six bags today.
Our next featured item is a bag of raw almonds:
It's a whole pound of raw almonds for $4.49. So healthy for the kids, easy for snacks, travels well...need I say more?
So that's today's installment of "Why Trader Joes rocks and I love it so much." Stay tuned to see what's next!
