Trader Joe's

It took a while, but Trader Joe's has finally followed me to North Carolina!

We now have Trader Joe's in Raleigh, Charlotte and Chapel Hill. A friend from work and I made the pilgrimage to Charlotte yesterday and after lunch, facials and shopping at the Polo Outlet (for Brandon) we hit Trader Joe's! I went down each isle three times to make sure I didn't miss anything and took home a whole load of favorites I haven't seen since my last trip to California.

For dinner last night we had Trader Joe's Chippino (some say Ciapino), Caesar salad I made with Trader Joe's organic romaine, and for desert, I warmed Trader Joe's Quintessential Berry Pie and served it in a bowl with vanilla ice cream... Heaven!

Last thing I did before I went to bed last night was send Trader Joe's a location request to bring one of their fabulous stores to Winston-Salem. As much as I love Fresh Market and Whole Foods, I need a Trader Joe's.

OH! Speaking of location requests... Guess what? I learned yesterday that Charlotte is getting an Ikea! Finally, I won't have to depend on trips to DC to get my Ikea fix. There's a running joke between us that the only way I get to Ikea is on our way back from a Bridge/Dawson family funeral, which kinda takes the fun out of it...

Happy Weekend!
