I miss Trader Joe’s salads. They contain interesting and delicious ingredient and very little boring iceberg lettuce.
The salads I’ve had lately from the regular store are literally the most cookie cutter boring thing I’ve ever seen.
The one today was a “crispy chicken salad” which had about 1 chicken tender worth of soggy fried chicken chunks, nearly a cup of soggy cheese in a wad, ¼ cup of black olives, ½ cup of some kind of dressing that might have been Ranch at one point but it didnt taste like ranch, even bad ranch, and a small smattering of red onions that were so slimy and smelly that they were probably made a month ago.
By the time I got all the junk out it was a few black olives, remnants of the gross cheese I couldnt get out, 1/3 less lettuce because cheese and onion slime was glued to it, and I had to add some chicken because it had 4 small pieces and they were mostly soggy breeding.
My “Caesar Salad” from there had 4 tiny croutons in a little bag, ½ cup of dressing so thick and rich it would have done 20 salads, 50% brown lettuce, and maybe a whole cup of wet sticky cheese on one side.
The “Chef Salad” which I havent opened yet has what looks like tofu chunks I’m sure are processed chicken feet and ass pressed into bleached white blocks, another ½ cup of dressing and from the bottom, I see lots of brown lettuce.
I think tomorrow I need to hit TJ’s for some real salads cause this **** ain’t cutting it.
At least I had some left over squash soup so I had something decent to eat.
And Im out of fruit juice but so tired and lazy that going 2 minutes down the street to the store, parking, and walking 5 minutes to the very back for juice doesnt appeal to me.
Hell I need papertowels and ordered them online because Id have to walk 3 minutes to them in the same store. And park 2-4 mins away because its so busy unless I go at 1am.
Im not lazy, it just hurts to walk and walking that far means I haveto sit with an ice pack for 20 minutes after.
And now I have a hankering for some fruit juice and some of that really good root beer. Ugh. Someone bring me to Sprouts please? Thanks. I’ll nbuy you some groceries or a proper salad or hug you in return.
