Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 91 - Saucy Scallops with Mushrooms
Ooh-la-laah – get a package of Saucy Scallops with Mushrooms!!! This was our first time trying this and it
was delicious! The package says 3
servings but we gobbled it up in 2.
Find this in a bag in the frozeen food section
There are a couple cooking methods listed on the package
and I did the one in a non-stick pan on the stove. Easy and only took around 8 minutes, in fact,
I did it as the pasta that I was going to pour this over cooked.
The dish includes lots of scallops, peas, and mushrooms
in an Emmental cheese sauce. All we
added was salt and pepper (oh, and served it over pasta). It would be nice if you put some fresh herbs
on top, too. My partner wished the
cheese sauce tasted a bit cheesier, but really overall we were both very
pleased with this dinner.
The price is fabulous - $5.99 for what I see as a fancy
dinner for two! This really had the feel
of a “restaurant meal” but it was at a Trader Joe’s price (plus, we ate it at
11:00 PM, which is after most restaurants stop serving dinner…).
