This trip the English Chedder cheese with carmalized onions is VERY good (they were giving samples of it yesterday) and going to make the Sunday morning omlette with that this morning.

For lunch this afternoon, the Chicken Gorgonzola (pkg serves 2 people) which is the chicken breasts with Portebella Mushrooms, Diced Tomatoes and Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce with Purple Moon Shiraz. Minus the wine, the lunch serving is 320 cal each...not bad for all that flavor!

I think the most expensive wine was $15 and champagne was $20 that I saw.

I bought two bottles of the chuck, one that was $5 purple moon (supposed fave) and $9.99 Cupcake wine that sounded too good to pass up. lol.

I'll list it here, but because it is a blog and a site, might get removed (just trying to help Mods)...anyway if it does, google: best Trader Joe's Wines and look for Jasons Blog....great info.

Thank for asking the question, got me investigating and found this site with good input!

Trader Joe’s Wines – Top 10 Wine List | Jason's Wine Blog | Trader Joe's Wine Reviews and more

In fact, I started to google LOTS of TJ's questions and have stumbled onto a wealth of info for questions about their snacks, frozen foods, etc. Try it and see if you can find something fun! I have also ordered from Amazon (and now have) two GREAT cookbooks for TJ's, the "I heart Trader Joe's Cookbook" and the "I heart Trader Joe's Party Cookbook"...both GREAT!!!

I just got back from there. Never dreamed I'd go anywhere near the place in the first week it was open, but I was inspired by the stories here of how well organized they were. I parked in a garage at the opposite end of the shopping center and walked about 5 minutes to get to the door, but the store did not seem horribly crowded. Some people seemed to be in a rush. Others seemed determined to linger. I made my way up and down each aisle twice in the span of about 20 minutes and managed to fill my cart, mostly with perishables. I've shopped there in other cities, but had never been able to buy anything that couldn't be brought home in a suitcase. Looking forward to trying all of these new foods!

Since I'm not a fan of anything else at The Quarry, I'm not crazy about the location. But I do concede that there is adequate parking in the garages.

Their 'Cookie Butter' is so delicious that I'm going to start a support group over it.

Champ/Wine: Their most expensive bottle of bubbly is about $50. They do carry a wide variety of bottles and price points. Love that they carry inexpensive bottles of sparkling sake too.

That cookie butter sounds divine but since I'm a diabetic I probably shouldn't buy it

OMG! Enjoyed the TJ's Eggplant Parmasean tonite for dinner....IF you are a fan of this dish....TO DIE FOR!!! Will be a regular at this home, and you could not MAKE it for what it cost (not to mention the fact that taking it from the fridge and having ready to nuke for 4 minutes when DH finally made it home from work at 7pm makes it the PERFECT "go to" dinner)!

Paka - good to know. I bought some of the eggplant parm but havent made it yet.

I can tell you I am already hooked on what I have tried:
wine
ladyfingers
herb seasoned popcorn
apple honey butter

Apparently this means I will be going back to TJ's this weekend.
