I’m at a loss here, folks. My garbage disposal is broken and my kitchen sink is backed up. This is a pretty dire situation for me. This means: If I want to cook, I need to wash vegetables and pots, pans, and dishes…in the bathtub? So, the husband and I had to think of a way to feed our faces and keep from using that damn sink.
Off to Trader Joe’s we went. I really don’t like T.J.’s. There is not much there other than pre-packaged food. I have more critiques, but I’ll leave it at that. I’m not a huge consumer of pre-packaged food, but this weekend, I had no choice. Most of the stuff we bought can be cooked in the oven with minimal prep and clean up. Here is what we bought:
- Handcrafted Black Been and Cheese Taquitos
- Chicken Gyoza
- Asian Vegetables with Bejing Style Soy Sauce
- Mandarin Orange Chicken
- Handcrafted Chicken and Cheese Tamales
- Handcrafted Cheese and Green Chile Tamales
- Roasted Eggplant Hummus
This should last us until our apartment management decides to fix our sink.
I’m super skeptical of T.J.’s, but hopeful at the same time. The hummus was the best store-bought hummus I’ve ever purchased.
