Trader Joe's Yay/Nay - February 2014! [OLD]

Yay- Butternut Squash & Creamed Spinach Gratin. I thought this was a seasonal item but my store in central VA had a ton. I love this has a quick veggie entree for just myself.

What do you add to JIFFY Corn Bread mix? Creative uses? (rop)

How did that turn out? I'm curious!

Target/Super Target Yays and Nays 2014

The Archer Farms brand has tons of trail mix and nuts that are all delicious. Pretty much all their snack food gets yays in my book.

Do you shop at Aldi's?

Love Aldi! I tend to gravitate toward their "Specialy Selected" brand. I can always find something neat/interesting for cheaper than my normal grocery store.

What is your dirty little food secret?

Frozen beer battered fish fillets. Can't get enough of them! Or any frozen, processed seafood actually...

What do you think of the prepared foods at Whole Foods?

The last time I was in a WF I thought that the BBQ section was delicious..been awhile though.

Does anyone know if they offer the nutritional information for their food bar? For a store like WF I would think that they would, but I can't find anything.

Can you taste the rosemary extract in these? I've seen that in a lot of frozen turkey burgers and it's always put me off but I've never tasted it for myself.

How many dinner sides do you usually prepare?

Sorry If this has been posted--- I've looked but can't find quite what I want.

How many sides for dinner do you usually prepare? Or how do you decide what to fix with what ever your main dish is?

Growing up my mom always did a meat and three type thing. Now that I'm grown I find myself reverting back to that even though I don't necessarily want too. I'm in a cooking rut and can't get out!!

Also-- When you prepare a heavier/substantial side dish what is your usual entree pairing?

Aldi's - brand name cheese section

I picked up some of the wensleydale cheese with figs and honey at my Aldi the other day. I've never tried cheese like this before but I thought it sounded so good I had to buy it. I'm a bit stumped as to what to eat it on for a full meal as opposed to just crackers though

Adapting a marinated/grilled chicken recipe for the oven? --New cook help!

Do you add the marinade to the baking pan?

Adapting a marinated/grilled chicken recipe for the oven? --New cook help!

Would it be possible to just mix all the marinade ingredients in a baking dish along with the chicken and bake immediately? If so, what temp would you suggest? 350?

Where to purchase Blue Bell Ice Cream in Fayetteville, NC?

Thanks everyone for the help but it seems like the Raleigh area is about 1hr from where I'll be at in Fayetteville. If that's that case then I think that's a bit out of my way unfortunately.. So no grocery stores actually in Fayetteville sell Blue BELL? (not to be confused with blue bunny)

**Unless I'm mistaken, which is VERY possible because I'm not familiar with the area!

Where to purchase Blue Bell Ice Cream in Fayetteville, NC?

I'm headed down that way in a few weeks from Virginia and was planning on picking some up if i can. I'm coming from the north so anywhere in Fayetteville or a town off i95 where I can buy it would be great!

New to me yay- Chili Lime Chicken Burgers. I've always seen them in store but I usually pass over and go to all the new items. I was surprised how much I liked them! Make for a quick salad topping and I'm set for lunch... esp at 150ish cals a burger!

--Also... does anyone know when the new Fearless Flyer comes out?

Do you have any food "rituals"?

I love this! I used to think I was strange for eating my sandwiches layer by layer! I also sort out any trail mix or snack mix of any kind and eat all the nuts, then candies, and then raisins.
