came for one thing, stayed for everything
help, I been Trader Joe’d
I am in the camp of people who truly believes that we, as Canadians, deserve a Trader Joes. Pirate Joe is a personal hero of mine (see: google). I don’t particularly enjoy being asked at the US & Canada border if I bought anything. I find that they don’t share the excitement of the “haul”. Therefore, as Canadians, I feel that we should be able to go to a Trader Joes in our own country and geek out over everything we purchased but didn’t need with like-minded individuals.
That being said, I bought some things. I was in the States overnight which meant I was allowed to spend some money and bring things home. Here are some staple-ish items I love lately.
what are your staples? what are your favourite seasonal items?
