I baked apple buckwheat muffins last night in preparation for an early morning flight. I’m really beginning to get the hang of this airport life. Whether that’s good or bad has yet to be determined, but such is life.
As I sat in the early morning, sun-blazed terminal, I was re-reminded how much I love Tampa’s airport. If it hasn’t won awards for best XYZ airport, it should. The best.
By the time I landed at DCA and metro’d to Alexandria, it was lunch time. A co-worker and I headed to Whole Foods for some highly addictive salad bar. Garlicky kale, boiled egg, dill white beans, beets, and broccoli – I wish every lunch could be this green.
I checked into a hotel in Alexandria (rather than my usual Arlington spot), put on some sneaks, and headed to…. Trader Joe’s!
As many times as Ariel’s taken me to TJ’s in LA, you’d think I’d be less surprised at how low the prices are. Not the case. Sandwich, veggie, dessert, and tomorrow’s breakfast, all for $14? It’s both confusing and amazing.
P.S. Gone Bananas! are so darn good.
How often are you able to shop at Trader Joe’s?
