I know I haven’t been here for a while, so this #7 is probably more like número uno for me this year, but I saw a picture of a VW beetle and if you know anything about me you know I love VW bugs. and if you know anything else about me, you know I’m a nice person 😉 so I wanted to share.
Fast forward to Which Way…
So we heard it was going to snow today. But do we stay home? Of course not. We HAD to go to Trader Joe’s because I HAD to have their coconut Greek yogurt. Trader’s is about 25 minutes away so we detoured for breakfast and then off we went.
True to form, it snowed. Traffic was stupid. But I had my eye on the price. Coconut Greek YOGURT!
The snow didn’t really look like a big deal.
After all, TJ’s had what I needed.
This is a really fun place to shop. You get free coffee and can taste samples of yummy food, they’ve got a great selection of cards for A DOLLAR and the cashier’s wear Hawaiian shirts – ALL YEAR ROUND!) The walls are decorated with fun, colorful pictures and it’s just a very cheerful shopping experience.. (Here’s where the VW comes in.)
This is the pic that makes me smile.
One if by land…
(But if you’re into canoes…)
And two if by sea (or river, or lake, or…)
So I grab up some coconut yogurt ( and mangoes and blackberries, sliced italian bread and chocolate covered raisins – all the essentials) then home again home again, jigging jig.
Traffic seems to have died down. I suppose yogurt is not a priority with some folks.

Greek Coconut yogurt is the bomb! Sadly we don’t have a Trader Joes in our area so I have to settle for what I can find at the grocery store. I also love Noosa yogurt. About 10 billion calories but soooo good.
YA know. I’ve tried coconut yogurt elsewhere but this is just so thick and creamy. Wait! I need to go check the calories…
Boo! Don’t check!!
I love the Beetle !! So bright and colourful!!
And adorable. 😉
So now you’re ready for a snowstorm. It’s important to be prepared!
I like my Greek yogurt with honey but I’m game to try 🙂 I haven’t had breakfast yet…now let me see. Have to have another coffee while I think about it. Free at TJs you say? Hold that plane! 🙂
Just a small (very small) cup but so delish. 😍
Ha! So funny! Different people have different priorities for storm supplies. I am not as brave as you, so I shop for mine WAAAAY before the snow comes (I’m a die-hard-baby about driving in the snow). Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls and the makings for a chicken pot pie are all I need. But some sliced Italian bread sounds like a GREAT idea!
The sliced italian went well with the turkey chili Jeff made. The yogurt was dessert and covered in blueberry, blackberries, pineapple and anything else I can get my hands on. 😍👍
Love da Bug! We have some love for TJ’s too but the closest one is two hours away! Italian bread with buttah… always good. Must try coconut Greek yogurt. Our snow/ice storm food needs… bargain brand orange rolls that you crack the tube on the counter and pop in the oven, Dean’s dip, chips, queso, peanut butter M&M’s.
Make way. I’m comin’ over!😉
Your post was fun to see. Thanks Gemma for playing.
TJ’s looks like a really cheerful place to shop, Gemma. Love the colour of the Beetle. I’ve never tried coconut yoghurt, but it sounds amazing, and well worth a trip through the snow. Free samples would definitely lure me in too. 🙂
AND they bend over backwards to be helpful and friendly there. LOVE IT!
That yogurt sounds so good..I will have to try it someday.. Bugs will always have a place in my heart..
Do, Roberta. It is yummy.
And yes. Bugs. Ahhh. Nostalgia. 😉
If you haven’t been here for awhile then you have been there for awhile, and both are good. I like the story and pictures. ATP xxx
Thanks, bud. ❤️
Yvette at “Priorhouse” blog https://priorhouse.wordpress.com/2015/01/15/persimmon-pictures-and-memory-of-david/ is always raving about TJs, unfortunately they do not have any stores over here in Oz, mores the pity as it sounds a fabulous place to shop, WOW free coffee and samples, how good is that… I was amazed you can get mangoes in mid winter, are they Aussie ones? They are definitely seasonal over here and so we gorge on them for the 3-4 months we can get them, they are my favourite fruit.
But I don’t think I would pay $26000 for a tray!!! see the story here http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-09-03/northern-territory-mangoes-sell-for-26000/5716812
I have never driven on snow and ice I think I would be too nervous…
Slow and steady wins the ice and snow race. $26000!?!?! Crazy but they are good. 😉 oh. And these say Peru. We have to leave them out a while to ripen but then OMG! ❤️❤️❤️
They are not allowed to import mangoes or bananas because of the danger of disease
I guess they’re not fretting about that here. 😱
P.S. $26000 for a good cause. 👍
Definitely for a good cause. Last year the first case was $30000, so I guess this one was a bargain…
