I decided to do some of my grocery shopping this week at Trader Joe’s. They just opened one up in my town last fall. Before that I would drive about 25 minutes to get to one. The funny thing is I waited 2 years for it to come here and I’ve only been there like 3 times! I still mainly do most of my shopping at Aldi just to save money, but its nice to go to Trader Joe’s to accessorize my dinners.
The kids came with me, and even though it was June 6th, it was in the mid-50’s yesterday in Chicago and WINDY! We were so cold! I didn’t want to grill out, so my oldest son had the idea of stir fry and we went with that!
If you haven’t gotten their vegetarian pot stickers, you must! You get 8 huge pot stickers for only 230 calories.
This is what they look like cooked. You just put them in a skillet with a little water to steam them. Then when the water is gone, just add a little oil and brown them up!
We also picked up a box of these. Chicken stix! For 2 stix its only 100 calories.
I was happy to find one of my favorite stir fry sauces. Saigon Sizzle. For those of you who are local, you can find this brand called “House of Tsang at Jewel or Dominicks grocery stores. They have these flavors which I also love: Thai Peanut, Classic Stir Fry Sauce, Spicy Szechuan, etc…
So for the stir fry:
I had green beans, shredded carrots, garlic, sugar snap peas, broccoli slaw, cauliflower, red onion, edamame, and chicken.
It was so good! I had 4 pot stickers, 2 chicken stix, the stir fry with a few peanuts chopped on top! It took me forever to eat it all! I love stir fry nights!
