My new fav grocery store

By | October 15, 2013

Trader Joe’s is now becoming my favorite grocery store to go to every weekend. The nearest for me is in St. Paul. There are a few other locations throughout the cities. I have been to TJ’s many times but usually it was a quick drop in with my friend. I am now frequenting TJ’s every weekend either on my way to my friend’s or on the way home.

So one of these trips I dropped in TJ’s liqour store which is next to the grocer’s. They do have very interesting names for their hard liquor and beers.

Death’s Door Gin. Drink at your own risk. There were other’s from the same “Death” brand!

Vodka of the Gods….again…probably telling these boozers to be prepared to meet your Creator! LOL

Then I saw these V.S.O.P. and Hennesseys….looked at the prices, it’s so cheap where prices are in the $30s and $40s. I remember these few popular brands back in M’sia top the hundreds…RM200 plus maybe…

The beer and wine at TJ’s are cheap. Fat Weasel ale at $6.49 for a 6 pack is cheap and so are the other brands. There are some spendier ones and also different types of brew. My friend was the one who told me about the variety of brews sold at TJ’s. Thank goodness i don’t drink.

I harvested these tomatoes from my friend’s tomato plants before the frost comes in this week. They were so green, hopefully by putting them by the window sill will help ripen them when I get there on Saturday. You can see the tomato plants through the blinds….I have yet to pull them out.

Oh this baby here is not too bad, though I won’t get it again. It was $1.49/container, little pricey for me, however, I bought two – a blueberry and a vanilla flavor. The blueberry has blueberry flavor and the same taste of coconut oil, if you have tried coconut oil (I actually love it). The vanilla is better than the blueberry. Again maybe because I like the “coconut oil” taste.

There are a lot more things in that store I want to buy and try. I am buying their store brand Cheerios. It’s way cheaper than the “Cheerios” brand. Another thing I like very much is their bread…the light rye is delightful….I could have eaten the whole darn loaf if I have no self-control. :P

Those liquors names… scary. I would buy it for decoration only. Haha

You planted those tomatoes? Some of them are huge!

Coconut oil = coconut milk? Santan right?

I didn’t plant the tomatoes, those are my friend’s. The big ones if I’m not mistaken are called Heirloom.

Coconut oil is not coconut milk/santan. I believe the oil comes from the milk/santan…leaving the freshly squeezed santan over night to form and the curd and oil will separate. The santan is more fragrant, the oil is less but is still good.

I only know the coconut oil use for cooking. Can’t imagine it taste like coconut oil.
