a steal and a splurge

At Trader Joe's right now, a large sized basil plant for $2.99! I picked one up on Sunday afternoon. It will go in my next pasta or omelette. Great for cooking and smells nice too.

I got this along with my *favorite* yogurt at TJ's, Fage. This stuff is SO good. It's a creamy greek yogurt which I'll eat for breakfast with granola and cut up strawberries and blueberries. Kinda pricey though, almost $5 for this small container.


This is a splurge product for me. I usually get the Karoun Dairies product from the Armenian grocery store in Glendale, Jons. It's way cheaper and still good, but not as creamy and little more sour. You can also find the Karoun Dairies yogurt at Whole Foods, but I like to support the little people.

  1. yeah, bry and i were all looking forward to eating cheap yogurt in greece but it was the same price as trader joe's! and the same exact brands! man, trader joe's is good.

    and that basil plant is actually a great deal. while cooking, we rarely need all the basil that is usually sold in the containers, but the plant allows you to pick a few each time you need it. :)

  2. Isa is starting to share your breakfast habits. She's always been an oatmeal for breakfast girl, but now she is learning to savor the taste & texture of raspberries.

  3. Hi Bo! Now I want to check TJ's for the basil...mmm. I read an article about growing a potted tomato plant in your apartment and am getting kind of excited about that, too.
