In Hog Heaven
Thursday, January 31, 2013
I have no idea where the expression "Hog Heaven" came from, but it perfectly describes my first visit to the brand new Trader Joe's in San Antonio yesterday.
I had been to Trader Joe's before: once in Annapolis, MD, once in Baltimore, and once to the newly opened store in Fort Worth, but never by myself so there was always someone else whose timetable I had to work around, and the new San Antonio store has been open since early November and I hadn't had a chance to get down there for an exploratory expedition on my own.
Ohhhhhh, it was bliss! So much to look at, so much to consider, so many signs and labels to read, and nobody breathing down my neck.... So lovely!
Yes, I DID come home with some totally unnecessary food, but I brought home quite a bit of good stuff, too.
How I WISH that I had thought to look up beforehand those posts here on Sparkpeople in which people discussed their favorite Trader Joe products...
Well, there will assuredly be a Next Time!
