Trader Joe’s Saved My Life

This might sounds dramatic, but when I think about the things in my life I am most grateful for, Trader Joe’s ranks right up there! I hope all of you are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s Grocery nearby, because it has become a weekly staple in my life.

I like to cook and bake. However, in the last few months I realized that, combined with working all day and commuting, planning and making dinner at night was starting to seriously stress me out! I tried looking up “quick and easy” recipes online, but I just didn’t know how to eat at home without taking lots of prep and clean up time and getting exhausted. Enter Trader Joe’s! One Sunday, I went and bought out their frozen and prepared foods section, and suddenly, I had quick and easy dinners right in the freezer!

Now, I am not saying we eat it every night, but on days when we are both tired, it is so amazing to throw a frozen pasta dish or stir fry into a skillet and just watch it cook itself! Amazing! What I like about Trader Joe’s is that the food is well-prepared, oftentimes organic, and it’s cheap! It sounds silly, but I am truly grateful for it. If anyone has any other "secrets" for easy dinners, please share!

Have a great day!
