  1. I wish we had a Trader Joes around here - I love shopping there!

  2. You are crazy about TJ's these days! I love it!

  3. I don't know how you're drinking Fireball again already....bleeh!

  4. That drink sounds delicious! We're usually just the Klassiest and take our Fireball in shot form... but I'd make an exception for this! :)

  5. That drink sounds delish! Love TJ's! Their tamales are awesome

  6. Wow that drink sounds so good! and yum... I love gnocci!! I was telling my husband last night that he will have to fend for himself on Thursday! haha!

  7. Looking forward to your TJ's review - always wanting to hear hits and misses! Try the Trader Joes' Kung Pao Chicken from the frozen food section. I add an extra cup or so of frozen broccoli to the veggie mix, but it's seriously delish! (oh and make some rice to go with) Covers our takeout cravings for a fraction of the price. Love it!

  8. Yum! I love TJ!! Can't wait for your post!
