Applegate Farms hot dogs (sold in most TJs) has a new $1 coupon out.
I recently picked up the Seaweed Snacks, after eating about 3 of them I decided I didn’t like them, but my dog actually LOVED them, so didn’t really lose there.
Hey, that works!
Blackened Salmon Fish Tacos:
Trader Jo’s corn salsa (I use mission artisan tortillas)
2 Your choice of tortillas
2 tbsp Chopped tomato
2 tbsp avocado
2 tbsp black beans
2 tbsp Trader Jo’s corn salsa
1 salmon patty (you can find good frozen ones at Costco)
A bit of cabbage drizzled with lime juice
Saltys blackening spice (to taste)
Sour cream (optional) everything tastes better with it!
Put a little coconut oil in a cast iron skillet, warm till melted. Rub your salmon with Saltys blackening spice (if you’re cooking the salmon from frozen sear a bit before seasoning). Cook salmon to your likeness. While the salmon is cooking combine the corn salsa, tomatoes, avocado and black beans. Slice your cabbage thinly and toss in a bit of lime juice. Remove salmon from heat and warm your tortillas in the same skillet. Portion salmon between the two tortillas and then top with salsa, cabbage and sour cream. Enjoy! It is so good!!!

I buy canned artichoke hearts at TJs, they are much better priced than the regular grocery store. I use them in salads, pastas, on pizza, anywhere!
i know i’m a little late to the post but the pineapple salsa is a staple in our house. goes well with their organic longboard chips and the organic blue corn ones too. tj’s has the best price on dr. bronner’s castile soap in our town and we use it for everything in our house….as long as you like peppermint, that’s the place to get it. my latest fave find: bacon cheddar ranch dip in the prepared refrigerated section. yum!! also a staple their organic free range chicken drumsticks, usually around $3 or $4 for a package of 5-6.
