Trader Joe's Finds of the Week (Carb Edition)

I missed last week's entry (damn you, senior thesis!), so I threw in an extra one for this week.

One: Van's all natural gourmet multi-grain waffles. I'm usually leery of foods that are dairy free, but these waffles are amazing. Not only do they taste good, but they're actually good for you! They have 5 grams of protein, 5 grams of protein, 100 grams of delicious. Plus, two waffles are only 190 calories, which is few enough for everybody's battle of the bulge this holiday season. I like to cook mine in the toaster oven, cover them in peanut butter, and devour.

Two: TJ's brand Puff Pastry. It's frozen, it comes in 8"x8" sheets, and it bakes up crispy, flaky, and oh so delicious. Use in place of pie crust for a pot pie (more on that later), or top with your favorite cheese for a wonderful appetizer. I recommend stocking up on these, as they seem to disappear from the freezer case at lightning speed these days.

Three: Challah rolls. Challah bread is good to begin with, but put it in nice little individual servings and it's even better. They don't go stale as fast as other dinner roll. They also don't mold as fast as everything else we keep atop our microwave. This makes them cost effective, since we aren't throwing them out uneaten, as well as yummy. And if there is one thing I like more than yummy, it is cheap and yummy.
