Trader Joe’s Gorditas
I rely a lot on Trader Joe’s for my lunches at work. They have a lot of really, really good frozen foods.
These suuuuuuuck. It’s a five-inch (approximately) diameter disc of masa filled with the most tasteless beans, cheese, and chiles imaginable. And it’s 350 calories for this tiny little thing! They’re sold in packs of four, so unfortunately I have three more to choke down. I think I will need to bring in some complement of salsa, sour cream, and avocado to work in order to make them palatable.
So yeah. Super-disappointing.
Stuff from Trader Joe’s that has served me in good stead for lunch include:
Paneer Tikka Masala with Spinach Basmati Rice
Shrimp with Green Curry and Jasmine Rice (weaklings, it’s not THAT spicy)
Mac and Cheese (although it’s too big, 1 or 1.5 servings would be better than 2)
Eggplant Parmesan Towers (these take like 2x the cooking time indicated because they’re so freakin’ dense)
Curried Lentils on Basmati Rice with Cumin (well, I liked it)
