I made a trip to Trader Joe's yesterday because 1001 people have been telling me I just had to go there. Gals from the pool, to the salon, and of course on the internet, have been singing the praises of this tiny store that is cram-packed with organic goodness.

I will personally be blaming Jo-Lynne of Musings of a Housewife for the new Cheese Stick and Cinnamon Graham crackers vice, because she recommended them. No doubt, since I just gave up a raging Diet Coke addiction, I was in need of a replacement. Those two lovely snack items will suffice.
All jokes aside (Jo-Lynne, ya know I love you like a blogger, right?) I went to TJ's to get some whole wheat pretzels and the TJ's brand of Wheat Thins.
I love Wheat Thins with sliced apple dipped in peanut butter for lunch, which I have already mentioned here before, and I was skeptical about changing my cracker (even with all the awful stuff they put in them), but the TJ brand is actually TASTIER!
As a matter of fact I am having that same lunch today, except I had to replace my standard apple with a pear, because I have had an unfortunate incident this week that has made the inside of my mini-van smell as if I am attempting to make some homemade brew.
It all started on Monday when I ran to the Costco. Among other things I picked up a package of twelve large Fuji apples. These apples are usually so tasty but when I got them home and started to put them in the fridge, the bottoms (the part you couldn't see in the package, were all brown and soggy. They were obviously very old.
I knew I was going into town on Wednesday so I put the apples back in the fridge with a note to remind me to take them back for a refund.
Wednesday morning started with a stressful hue, and in the process of getting out the door I placed those apples in a freezer tote bag I keep in my car for transporting frozen and cold stuff.
The day continues to be a little crazy, and I sort of forgot those apples were in the bag. Until just about 25 minutes ago, when I took The Girl to a friends house.
Hence the pear with lunch today.
Somehow I don't think I am going to get my money back.
