Weekly Trader Joe’s Haul and Asian Market Haul!

Hello everyone and welcome back to another blog post on ~Foodie with a Passion~! Happy Saturday everyone and hope you’re having a great weekend so far. Yesterday was my cat Mochi’s 2nd birthday so made sure she got some yummy kitty treats when I got home from work. Today’s post is my weekly TJ haul and I did a quick haul at the Asian market for a few things to replenish the fridge. So without further ado, before we get started, remember to click subscribe so you don’t miss another Foodie Fun 🤩

Alrighty! Weekly TJ Haul here we go!

TJ Haul
  • Sliced Black Olives – for Chicken Long Rice
  • Black Beans – making sure I had a can of beans on hand for a quick pantry meal like Taco Bowls
  • Carrots – almost out so I replenished the fridge. I’ll be using some in my Braised Daikon dish as well as Stir Fry and Pot Roast this week
  • Rainbow Potatoes – for the Slow Cooker Pot Roast
  • Bananas – I’ve been enjoying slices bananas in plain Greek yogurt lately so I gotta make sure and have my bananas
  • Green Onions – I used up the rest in Chicken Long Rice and so I bought another bag. Making Asian dishes I seem to go through green onions way quicker
  • Red Onions – got a couple more for a few more recipes. It’ll be in stir fry and also pot roast
  • Tomatoes – the previous ones I bought were nearing the end of its lifetime so I had to toss them. I got new ones so I can make side salads since I still have romaine hearts in the fridge
  • Baby Spinach – for the blanched spinach that I will have as a side dish this week. Some of it went into the Brekky Bowls that I meal prepped
  • Wisconsin Mild Cheddar – I got a small block of cheese to shred and freeze. This option seems to be cheaper than buying already shredded cheese at the store lately
  • Tofu – I can never have too much tofu so I always want a backup in the fridge
  • Liquid Egg Whites – trying to add more protein to breakfast so I used this when I made the Brekky Bowls (4 whole eggs plus egg whites)
  • Plain Low-Fat Greek Yogurt – I’ve swapped from non-fat to low-fat. Despite only a 10kcal difference, I do have to add more calories in the second and third trimester. I’ll have these with sliced bananas and cereal
  • Strawberry Kefir – and my weekly bottle of kefir. I still have it just about every night with strawberries and Rice Krispies
  • Eggs – and more eggs for the week
  • Bone-In Skin-On Thighs – for Chicken Long Rice
  • Nappa Cabbage – I used the last of it in Chicken Long Rice so I made sure I got some to replenish
  • Bean Sprouts – for the stir fry noodles this week
  • Okra – I will blanch these and have them as a side dish
  • Bún Gao Rice Vermicelli Noodles – this exactly isn’t the long rice you use for Chicken Long Rice but this will do. The last time I got my rice noodles in Hawaii so it was the authentic ones
  • Mama Noodles – I’m going to use these noodles in the noodle stir fry dish next week

And there we have it! Let me know in the comments below what you got at the store to make for next week and until then…signing off!
