Trader Joe’s

One thing that we really like about having moved to the northern suburbs of Chicago is once again having easy access to a Trader Joe’s. We shopped there a lot when we lived in Portland. You can’t go there with your heart set on specific stuff because they frequently don’t have all of everything, or the brands come and go. We got several bags of good gourmet stuff for under $50, including some frozen bowls of Indian biryani rice and kung pao chicken, some great tortellini and lots of other cheap yet delicious food. You can’t beat it. We were suffering from withdrawal in Atlanta, that’s for sure.
