Mochi and Salad

Have  all of you who live by TJ’s tried this Mango Mochi? Oh my gosh, it is so good. Actually, I am just now noticing that the brand isn’t TJ’s, so I am wondering if this brand is sold at other stores as well.

Have you all tried the non refrigerated peanut sauce at TJ’s? If so, you probably soon realized that it is gross. A worker recommended that I instead try this Spich Peanut Vinaigrette. It is so yummy. Salad with this dressing is so good. Here is what I use:

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Chicken
  • Peas
  • Bell Pepper
  • Lots of avacado
  • Cilantro
  • Lime juice
  • Cooked cold rice noodles

Toss it all together and drizzle dressing on top and prepare to have your world rocked!


I have been cooking very simply lately, and I would love to hear what you all have been making for dinner!

Ugh..the dreaded dinner. I really, really want to be a good cook but to be honest…I’m kinda terrible. I think I get frustrated with my lack of knowledge and resources (until now). So, this is one of my goals is to become better at making yummy dinners. We have bbq’d lately because the weather has been nice. Our go to, easy and quick, are the salmon burgers from Costco. I also just tried Costco’s black bean burgers and I thought it was great! I too like the idea of simple and light dinners. Stan and I both need to lose a few lbs. so I know this will help. Your salad sounds yummy…to bad no TJs around.

I love hearing what other people get at Costco. The black bean burgers sound so good, and I want to see if I can make those from scratch. Do they fall apart on the grill? I have that problem with veggie burgers. Oh, and Chris and I could join your quest to lose a few pounds :)
