Yesterday was the best day of the week because I got to take a little trip to Trader Joe’s. I wish we lived closer so it could be the only place we shop. Why can’t I have one within walking distance?

That probably wouldn’t be good. We would be incredibly broke. And maybe divorced.


As usual, here’s what I grabbed!


First up… the peanut butter cream cheese that I discussed via Facebook and Twitter this week.

I put it to good use this morning with a whole wheat cinnamon raisin English muffin.

It was really good, but I think I was still hoping for it to taste like peanut butter cream cheese frosting.

It didn’t. But I would still recommend it!


I went outside the box and got some new flavors of hummus.

Tuscan white bean will probably always be my favorite, but I wanted to try some new ones after all of your rave reviews. Haven’t opened them yet!


A staple.

Already been opened. Halfway to domination.


And I know why I’ve never bought these before.

Holy addicting. I foresee these being gone by Sunday night.


Tried these strawberry smoothies because Mr. How Sweet likes these sorts of things.


And I love the Fiberful leathers!

They make such a great snack on the go.


I almost didn’t pick up this soup because I tend to avoid soy like the plague due to my hypothyroidism.

But many people have said it is so delicious and I think it would make a quick snack or part of a meal. Let’s just hope I don’t get addicted.


I picked up a few more snacks than usual.


I can’t wait for some wasabi peas!

Clearly I was shopping hungry.


This is my all-time favorite vanilla.

I could literally drink it.


Some of you may remember my obsession with figs. I love this spread so much.

I’m thinking that it may go well with the peanut butter cream cheese??


I picked up some of this water for Mr. How Sweet to mix with vodka.

I love lime and orange!


Some obligatory canned goods.

About to dig into that salsa as soon as I’m finished with this post.


More crack.

It has to last longer this time. I’m going to hide it from myself.


Some produce. Notice my mushroom obsession – there is another container underneath.

The cucumbers are purely for juicing purposes.


And lastly, some ugly, yet necessary greens.

Of course there are a few things I didn’t photograph – the six bags of mandarin orange chicken that I got for Mr. How Sweet and the four boxes of cereal, etc.


Think I can manage to stay away from the grocery store for two weeks? Wishful thinking.
