#1: Chicken Gyoza Potstickers

4 Dec

I lived in Los Angeles for several years, and during that time I came to know Trader Joes, not just as a fun, friendly, frugal food store, but as a special destination. It was and is my happy place.

This year, TJ s opened not just one, but two, tong-awaited locations in the Kansas City metro. The town has gone Trader Joes Crazy! And now my happy place has come to me.

Today – and I mean, about an hour ago – I was talking to my friend Karen. We were discussing a sort of potluck thing and several TJ’s items were mentioned. She said, “We should have a place where we can see all our friend’s favorite TJ items so we can remember what we want to try when we go shopping.” Brilliant idea, Karen.

An hour later: This is that place.

We plan to post photos and brief descriptions, anecdotes, etc. of our fave TJ finds and must-haves. We invite you to share your TJ experience with us, as well as any unique food combos, recipes and ideas.

Take care and enjoy!
