Trader Joes Recipes

Have you guys heard how some college student wanted to take away the word’s that describe a foods origin, like “Italian”, because they thought it was racist? It is a store that values food from different cultures, so when you think about it, how would we describe it otherwise? Sweet and spicy food for all? You want to know where it comes from, and labeling with a name that describes is not the end of the world. If they were to sell southern food that says something like brownies from blackface, then yeah that’s different. See the difference? When can we not simply label food from where it comes from?
So we are deciding to stop going out to dinner and make take out at home. So, here are some ideas for my grocery list today. I think some of these recipes are extravagant and don’t need all of these which would be expensive,

but which one is your favorite?
