One of the food items I bought at Trader Joe's on my last trip is getting a "maybe not" from me. It was a package of frozen Eggplant Parmesan. I ate every bit of it, but I had to work at it a little. First, the sauce on the veggies is spicy. I'm not into "hot" foods, at least not the spicy-hot kind. It's not over the top take your breath away hot, but it is spicy. I don't make my eggplant parmesan that way and it was unexpected in this stuff, but it was there. The other thing I don't appreciate is that they didn't bother to peel the eggplant, just sliced it up with the peel on. Now that may be a healthier way to make eggplant parmesan. I don't know. There may be a world of vitamins and minerals in that peel. But it really made the eggplant difficult to cut into bite-sized pieces. And it was pretty darned chewy. So, unfortunately, this is one entree from Trader Joe's I don't necessarily recommend.
I did my update yesterday for the Creative ladies who help me out so much. I had given up hope of getting the new store open this week. I'd sent an e-mail to the store owner several days ago with no response. Then I re-sent it, with no response. Finally I got an e-mail from her that was spontaneous. She had not received the previous 2 e-mails. Well, I sent that e-mail again. I guess the 3rd time was the charm. Anyway, she responded immediately and I have a new store!
I thought I would show you the previews of the kits that are in the store:
That is one big bunch of gorgeous kits. They're all 30% off for this week only. There are also a few template sets, some word art, and some stackers that coordinate with these kits and they're also 30% off this week.
You can find the new store here: http://scrapbird.com/designers-c-73/d-j-c-73_515/hotflashdesigns-c-73_515_558/ Come on over and check the place out!
