This is one frozen entree that is frequently unavailable is Trader Joe’s Palak Paneer. I wasn’t sure what to think of it just looking at the package. I’ve enjoyed their other Indian dishes such as the Trader Joe’s Vegan Tikka Masala, Trader Joe’s Lamb Vindaloo, Trader Joe’s Butter Chicken, Trader Joe’s Chicken Tikka Masala and my personal favorite the Trader Joe’s Paneer Tikka Masala Review. What I enjoyed most about the Paneer Masala was the Spinach flavored rice and the Paneer itself. This one is called Palak Paneer because Palak means Spinach. Can this dish be supplemented, yes, the back of the box give you recommendations to serve this with rice. Being that this is my lunch I’m having it without, but I’d highly recommend this with rice….
It’s the season where everything is coming up pumpkin. If you go to Trader Joe’s they sneak pumpkin into just about everything so you end up trying just about everything. So in looking for ravioli the other day I came across this in the refrigerated aisle and figured I’d try it. Trader Joe’s Honey Roasted Pumpkin Ravioli is definitely something worth looking at if you enjoy a good butternut squash ravioli….
The pros: Trader Joe’s Alfredo Sauce is one of the better alfredo sauces on the market. For $3.29 it is a bit higher priced than other brands like Prego when on sale at the supermarket, but the premium is worth it.
The cons: Is it as good as homemade alfredo? Heck no. There is no comparison. It seems to always be on the bottom shelf out of sight. It deserves to be more visible.
The verdict: …
It’s an American ritual that happens every 4 years. It’s even more exciting when there is no incumbent president and the fate of the world hangs in the balance. Worst of all, the decision is up to your fellow Americans (the ones who show up anyways). Brace yourselves and have a party because we’re all screwed! The game card is below with a list of Buzzwords. Copy and paste it on to a sheet of paper, pass those pages out and laugh away. If you are having company, suggested items are also listed that can make a party more fun….
As we head towards colder weather, is there anything more comforting than a steaming hot bowl of risotto? If the idea of slaving over a stove for at least 20-30 minutes doesn’t do it for you, Trader Joe’s Asparagus Risotto package will get it down to 5 minutes flat in a microwave. The taste was as close to homemade as I’ve ever had and is one of the best risottos I’ve had in the freezer section. My only regret is they only offer the Asparagus which some people might not find appealing. But it is definitely an item that should not be overlooked while in the freezer section at Trader Joes….
