Oh Trader Joes how I love thee.
You give me all sorts of goods from pastas to coffee.
Your sausages always make an appearance
in our freezer for easy meal deliverance.
The Sweet Apple & Mango flavors are a breakfast delight.
Even if not the most beautiful sight.
Spicy Jalapeno & Roasted Garlic too.
Oh, Trader Joe’s how I love you.
We cannot forget that cereal aisle.
Or the dark chocolate that always makes me smile.
Speaking of dark chocolate, TJ’s you amaze me…
with all that you cover from almonds to pom seeds.
Then, of course, my favorite White Bean Basil hummus.
And your Mandarin Orange Chicken that makes you so famous.
You have sauces and salsas of so many flavors.
They make any dish that much more worthy to savor.
I have searched high and low with no such luck
in finding a comparison to your 3-buck-chuck.
Even down to your breads, you make everything yum.
In fact, your multigrain thins are the only thing M deems worthy of her tum.
And though you suffer an identity crisis, Trader Joe/Jose/Ming,
I promise to still adore you. After all, you make my
heart mouth sing.
Question of the Day – TJs fan? How often can you shop there or something like Whole Foods? We usually do our local Kroger, but will stock up on TJs when we can!
**Also, thank you all SO much for your comments and words of wisdom in my The Friend Break-Up post. It’s amazing how many of us have gone through similar situations. It seems there is a great split on whether or not to confront the issue head on or just allow things to move on naturally. I think I’m leaning towards the latter by not extending effort myself in the relationship anymore. I will openly discuss the situation, however, if the opportunity arises or becomes necessary. Once again, thank you for YOUR friendship!
