It’s what’s for dinner.

For dinner tonight, we tried Trader Joe’s Sweet & Sour Chicken for the first time…

It was really good. It was almost as good as Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken

And for dessert, we had strawberry shortcake…

It was another delicious dinner at home! πŸ˜€πŸ₯‘πŸ”πŸ“β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

We had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken for dinner tonight…

It’s been a minute since we’ve had Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken. And it was amazing. Again. Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken is so delicious. It’s still one of my very favorites. Sometimes absence makes the heart grow even fonder. 😍πŸ₯‘πŸ”β€οΈ

Line to enter starts here.

We ran over to Trader Joe’s this morning. We were pretty surprised to see that they were limiting the number of customers to 30 people in the store at a time…

The line wasn’t very long. There were only three or four people ahead of us. Once we got into Trader Joe’s, it was pretty much like having the store to ourselves…

On the way home, we stopped to get coffee from Mad Llama, and we were back home in time for my first meeting of the morning. πŸ˜€πŸ›οΈβ˜•οΈβ€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Tonight, Genifer made Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken for dinner tonight…

We haven’t had the orange chicken in a minute. It was every bit as good as I remember it. Sometimes absence makes the heart grow fonder. 😍πŸ₯‘πŸ”β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

Tonight for dinner, Genifer made Trader Ming’s Chicken Chow Mein from Trader Joe’s…

It was another really good Asian dinner from Trader Joe’s freezer section just like our favorites: Mandarin Orange Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken. πŸ˜€πŸ₯‘❀️

Another rainy Saturday.

This morning we woke up early again to head over to Trader Joe’s before it got too crazy busy on Saturday. The later it gets, the busier it gets. We usually try to get to Trader Joe’s as close to 8am when it open as we can. This morning was our best time
so far. We pulled into their parking lot at 8:02am…

I just thought that little berry bunny was pretty cute. We didn’t get any frozen chocolate cover strawberry pieces though. I wonder if they would be good?

After we were done getting groceries at TJ’s, we headed over to get our Saturday morning coffee at Biggby

Biggby is our reward for getting up and getting groceries out of the way. We both got hot chocolates this morning. Biggby had more student artwork on display on their walls. I really liked the hills with the watercolor skies…

The owl and the elephant were really great too…

And if we had a daughter and named her Niala…

She would be Niala Fiala. Maybe Niala could be a middle name.

Later, we went over to Taft’s Brewpourium for another lunch with our gift cards we got for Christmas…

Taft’s had a new Hazelnut Latte Coffee Milk Stout on tap…

And it was really delicious. We watched the Michigan-Illinois game on our little tablet. We shared a small pizza with pepperoni, sausage and banana peppers…

We also shared some of Taft’s chicken wings…

We had six buffalo wings and six Cherrywood BBQ wings…

I think I really like the Cherrywood BBQ the best. But they’re both really good. And even though, Michigan lost. Again. It was a great lunch. We just love Taft’s pizza and wings.

Later, we started watching a series called 11.22.63 on Hulu. It’s pretty good so far. And even though it was another rainy day, it was another pretty good Saturday. πŸ˜€πŸŒ¨οΈβ€οΈ

Another low-key Sunday.

We got up early this morning to run over to get a few groceries from Trader Joe’s. And I became the mayor of Trader Joe’s on Swarm

And then, we stopped at Biggby again for weekend morning coffee

Genifer is the mayor of Biggby. We just had another pretty lazy day at home. I finished up my project for work. And we took the dogs on a few walks. On one of our walks, we found this little jazzy cool cat on the sidewalk that someone must have lost…

I set him on the base of one of the streetlights. I hope he can find his people again. We watched The Aeronauts on Prime Video. It was pretty good. It was just another pretty low-key Sunday. πŸ˜€β˜•οΈπŸ±β€οΈ

Weekends are always better when you don’t have to work on a bunch of stuff for work. But it’s also pretty nice to have the opportunity to work on some pretty big projects, even if the timelines are kind of ridiculous.

Trader Joe’s pumpkin contest.

This morning we made another early morning run over to Trader Joe’s. When we were checking out, we noticed Trader Joe’s was having an employee pumpkin decorating contest. And they were pretty awesome…

Wow, right?! Genifer’s favorite was the House on Haunted Hill because she loves haunted houses. My favorite was the VW bus pumpkin. πŸ˜€πŸ€—πŸŽƒπŸ’―β€οΈ

It’s what’s for dinner.

We had Trader Joe’s Teriyaki Chicken for dinner tonight…

It’s really good but not nearly as good as Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken. That one is my favorite. πŸ˜€πŸ₯‘πŸ”β€οΈ
