Episode 240: Tortilla Soup, Chickpea Salad, and the new Trader Joe’s podcast

It’s time for cold brew iced tea

This week, in food news, The Hypocrisy of Eating at Mexican Restaurants, via NPR’s The Salt. 

In our What’s for Dinner Segment, we’ve got tortilla soup.

In How’d You Make That? we’re talking chickpea salad in the style of chicken or tuna salad.

We gave a listen to the Inside Trader Joe’s podcast miniseries and share our differing opinions.

And finally, in What We’re Loving, it’s cold brew iced tea.

  1. The Trader Joe’s podcast was created by the devil. I willingly listened to two episodes and started itching to go to a TJ. I went there 3 days later. Yes, it’s a 30-min commercial, but I found their behind-the-scenes fascinating, especially for anyone trying to launch a business. Who’d have thought a taste test would be held in a deary space, for instance? The French expat community in the US is obsessed with TJ. I even know someone who used “proximity to a Trader Joe’s” as a criterion to rent a new apartment.

    On the topic of blocking on social media… I’d rather stay connected and unfollow than block altogether. Because they day will come when you’ll meet that person you blocked in real life and it will be the most awkward moment of your life #truestory That and nobody ever agrees 100% with anyone and, as uncomfortable as it is, we should force ourselves to listen to the other side. If we don’t do it, then who will lend us an ear?

    1. It’s totally a commercial, but an interesting, well-produced one! And how funny that you have a friend who includes Trader Joe’s as apartment rental criteria.

      And good tip on the blocking/unfollow issue!
