Dear Trader Joes....will you please move to Canada

Until today I was a "Trader Joe's" virgin.  I did not know what I was missing.  I have had a love affair with Target for some time now....even though Target is not in Canada either there are Target stores in Maine  which I visit a few times per year.  But there are no Trader Joe's in Maine as far as I know.

Anyway while we are in California I had to find a Trader Joe's.  I left Scott and the boys in the car while I ran in for a quick look around.  It was great, and the prices were unbelievable.  I went back to the car and told Scott he had to come in....he is not a shopper....I had to do a bit of convincing.  I told him there was lots of scotch...for a good price (strangely I didn't have to do much convincing).  The next thing I knew he had a cart...and was  enthusiastically filling it up....he was SHOPPING!   It was a miracle.

Now what to do with a huge bag of turkey jerky,  microbrewery beer, smoked gouda, etc, etc.

  1. Here's hoping Trader Joe's comes to your neck of the woods. I love Trader Joes! I would say I do 90% of my food shopping there.
