Trader Joe's Trip

 Every time I go into a Trader Joe's I remember how much I love that place. Look at these gorgeous mini heirloom tomatoes...and check out that huge thing of organic basil. Everything is so fresh.
 It's like everything you love is in one place--you don't have to waste time walking around a huge grocery store passing tons of junk you don't want. 
 Have you tried these cookies? They are like Oreos, but much better. And they come in 3 flavors.
 Salted pistachios. Yummers. They have tons of nuts, dried fruits, seeds...healthy and good stuff at a reasonable price.
And voila. This is what I made--an easy caprese salad with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, olive oil and balsamic. Food that is quick and tastes good must start with good ingredients. Simple.
Oh yeah...almost forgot the real reason I went to TJ's...had to get this cheesecake for Salesi's birthday. Only $7!
