The frozen orange chicken is the best. Bake it in the oven 20 min. Add the heavenly tangy sauce and voila. I serve it over rice and often add bell pepper. I think it is about 230 calories per serving. It is better than any orange chicken I've had out.

When I have guests and want to serve a vegetable platter, I always go to Trader Joes. I love that they have red bell pepper and zuccini with the usual carrots and celery and broccili.
I love their Whole Wheat Naan. Put it in the over for a couple minutes to get a crispy outside and warm inside, then spread on some peanut butter or hummus - or its great plain!

Their broccoli and rainbow cauliflower that you microwave/steam in the package. NOM!!
I also love their Middle East Feast, which is listed as one serving, but is really several meals' worth! It's 800+ calories all told, but I eat it over at least three meals, it makes awesome leftovers.

There is so much there that I like...
I'm especially fond of the bruschetta, the Greek yogurt, and the spinach lasagna.

There is NO way I could pick one favorite from TJs. NO WAY.
Here are a bunch: mint ice cream chocolate cookie mini-sandwiches frozen pizzas greek yogurt fruit tarts refrigerated pre-made Italian meals (like chicken parm) triple-ginger cookies peanut butter!!
Oh their smoked gouda is just the best! Aside from that, I love:
frozen margherita pizza tofurkey sausages** vanilla greek yogurt bagged baby spinach organic rainier cherries (pretty cheap, and so delicious!) Raw milk Gruyere and most of the rest of the cheese section Whole wheat pitas and british muffins Pound plus dark chocolate (seriously good) Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (too bad I can't have them in the house or I eat all of them) Frozen macaroni and cheese (not the healthiest thing, but so good)
**sausages are part of one of my favorite quick dinners. My boyfriend sautes them with some olive oil, tomatoes, and garlic and pours it on pasta. Sometiems we add gouda and pears. Mmmmm :)
First off, I'd like to say that this thread makes me want to cry since I live in a Trader Joe-less city.
My former favourites were: Frozen plain cheese pizza (imported from Italy!) Chicken chorizo sausages all of those affordable gourmet cheeses The raspberry creme brulee (comes with reusable ramkins) dried chile mango spinach, bluecheese, cranberry and pecan salad in a bag frozen balsamic roasted vegetables massaman curry rice bowl cheap almond butter tempting trail mix Trader Joe's High Fiber O's cereal frozen fish (tuna steaks) angus steaks
OK, I'll stop.
