It cannot already be mid-August. It seems like I just posted July’s Trader Joe’s Favorites, and now we are in August. Since this month is back to school for many of us, I am sharing some of my favorite quick snacks and meals with you. These are the perfect back to school goodies for students and teachers alike.
Peanut butter pretzels
These peanut butter pretzels are the perfect midday snack. Colton loves them and eats them by the handful during his work day. To be honest, I am not a fan of pretzels, but when they are stuffed with peanut butter, I can’t get enough.
Greek style chicken
Ever since we returned from Greece last year, I have been trying to incorporate more Greek staples. Fortunately, Trader Joe’s has several delicious Greek foods to choose from. Their Greek style chicken comes with orzo, spinach and feta. It microwaves quickly and makes a great dinner for two. I also like to split it up between two containers for easy lunches for two days.
Sparkling pink lemonade
Nothing says summer like lemonade. Colton and I have had such an obsession with sparkling water this summer. I found this sparkling pink lemonade last year, but have kept it stocked all summer. This makes a great cocktail mixer too, if that’s your thing.
Almond butter granola
Dark chocolate caramel wedges
It wouldn’t be a Trader Joe’s Favorites list without the typical chocolate item. These delicious little wedges are stuffed with caramel and slightly salty. I keep it at my desk at work and snack on one or two wedges after lunch.
