Trader Joes all day long

I made a strategic decision to get out of Walla Walla for 36 hours. It was everything I thought it could be. And don’t get me wrong. I love my little town, but I’ve found that you can take the girl out of Portland, but you can’t take the Portland out of the girl.

So I ate some amazing food.

And I had some of the best coffee ever.

I went for a run downtown.

Followed up by some tea and reading.

All as a prelude to the very best part…


Just what the doctor ordered. And I hit the freeway headed east, refreshed and rejuvenated.

But you know me and Trader Joes. And of course I stopped. And today when I skipped meetings to attend other meetings, my latest TJ’s stash gave me some joy.


A giant tablespoon of this on top of steel cut oats with blueberries.


A pile of raw veg with this amazing dip and a green smoothie.


More of these than I want to admit. 


I got home just in time for Matty B to go back to work and when J Man suggested breakfast for dinner, I immediately agreed.

You can take the girl out of Trader Joes, but you can’t take the Trader Joes out of the girl.
