Winner Winner Trader Joe’s Dinner

I really never win anything, so imagine my surprise (and delight) when I found out that I won a copy of this I HEART Trader Joe’s Vegetarian Cookbook from Averie Cooks.

Thank you Averie!!!

 

It was so exciting to receive this book in the mail today, and I immediately began flipping through.  What impressed me about the cookbook is the unique and realistic recipes.  Some use premade ingredients, but many of them do not.  There is even one that is just like my homemade PURE bar recipe.  Ironically, I was already planning on making a Trader Joe’s dinner.

If you haven’t tried these fully cooked turkey meatballs, then I highly recommend them.  They can be found in the freezer section.  I chose to heat them up on the stove.  Then served them over spaghetti squash with olive oil and veggies.

It was a filling dinner and the BOY didn’t even question if the meatballs were red meat or turkey.  Success!  For dessert, I snacked on one of these German-Chocolate Fudge Bites with a cup of TJ’s tea.

I can’t wait to dive into my new cookbook (and go shopping at Trader Joe’s)!

 

 

 

Any new Trader Joe’s finds?

I can’t wait for the mint tea to hit shelves this winter!

Here are a few more of my TJ faves!

  1. Isn’t it awesome when you win something unexpectedly? I love so many Trader Joe’s items, it’s hard to just pick a few. Their frozen pizzas are suprisingly delicious + a quick weeknight dinner with a salad. I also love their meatless meatballs (although I’ll have to try these turkey ones!), lots of their soups, a bunch of their cheese, etc. TJ’s rocks!

  2. TJ’s is a few miles from my house, but for some reason, I always forget to shop there (my co-op is about five blocks).

    I recently made athlete food turkey meatballs and had them over spaghetti squash… serious yum! I’ll have to try these TJ ones, too!
