I was running around today and needed a quick lunch. Grabbed the flatbread from the freezer. It has been in there a few months and our freezer had partially defrosted a few times by accident. So I had low hopes.. I sraped off the ice crystals and left it in way too long -- the cheese was burnt medium brown (although the bottom did not burn.)

STILL DELICIOUS!! Wow. There's the serving secret: let it go stale and then burn it. :) :) I lovem Trader Joe's.

Shrimp with Green Curry and Jasmine Rice
I love green curry and the occasional spicy (grab-the-water/milk/sour cream) dish. This was very tasty and quite hot which was what I expected reading this review. My husband loves super spicy stuff and he had to finish it up, though. He liked it.

It's GOOD, I'm glad I tried it and I may buy it again in the future but it did not make my top faves list.

Meal in a Muffin
Sounds fabulous. Room temperature lunch -- brilliant!

Sounds good but don't have the package next to me -- does it give instructions for the yogurt?

What a fabulous recipe to mix the ever popular Eggplant Garlic Spread and the I-would-love-to-buy-this-but-what-do-I-do-with this Steamed Lentils.

If you like the roasted corn and crab, you will LOVE this! Rich, creamy with bold flavor.

Hey, we hardly care what else you can add to Trader Joe's Seafood Blend and Pinot Grigio but the Asparagus Risotto is pure genius.... Why didn't we think of that?

Organic Garbanzo Beans
Organic snacks... my kiddos love them as a side dish for dinner or lunch especially.

Sweet and Sour Cabbage Apple Delight
Not a lot of work since Trader Joe's sells bagged shredded cabbage. Serve this up with some nice pork or chicken. The recipe calls for cherries and cranberries -- use Trader Joe’s Golden Berry Blend (raisins, cherries, cranberries& blueberries) -- splendid! It was good made warm but oh, so good the next day, cold, marinated. Yum.

We got inspired... Made some as recipe calls for, added raisons in others, added pecans in still others and finally make some mixed. To be honest, the "snails" would not hold, even after pinching the dough, so we made a bunch of knots by twisting a long piece and pinching the ends together. Turned out the plain ones were THE best!

And make sure you remember the butter in the bottom and on top -- heavenly.

So.... one negative. It is pizza.... A little on the tough side. Don't break a tooth!

Just amazing. So delicious. So easy!

We sauteed the onions, skipped the peppers and broth, emptied in a bag of Chimichurri Rice (found in the freezer), added a can of garbanzo beans, added chicken cubes and heated it all up. Served with dollops of Fage Greek yogurt, a generous handful of fresh chopped cilantro and the naan.

Buttermilk Biscuits
MMmmmm.... like Kentucky Fried Chicken's -- buttery, flaky, delicious. I love the fact that they are frozen and you can make them individually. The box says "Buttermilk Biscuits & Shortcake" so I guess you can use the batter as shortcake, but it was really dense and buttery so I would stick to biscuits.

These rich and tasty rollups are a breeze to make but gourmet enough to impress. It's a great idea for the flavorful Mango Ginger Chutney and any leftover chicken you might have lying around.

While the original recipe is great, we were inspired to tweak and substituted spinach for arugula and Just Grilled refridgerator ready chicken breast strips for canned chicken. We considered using flavored wraps but quickly changed our minds after tasting the rich combo of the chutney, cream cheese, green onions (a must) and chicken. We added just a dash of the seasoning and a generous portion of spinach leaves (which were also a fancy decoration for the serving plate.) For the palates of our younger tasters, we skipped the spinach and green onions and substituted the Apple Cranberry Chutney for the Mango Ginger. That was a modest hit but I guess it takes older gourmands to really appreciate this rollup.
