    What is this Trader Joe's you speak of? I'm from a small town and I've never heard of it. Is it a chain grocery store?

    I second that. I don't know what it's called offhand, but there is one medley that I just LOVE. mmm.mmm.

    Dinahann, TJ's is a small regional market. Here's the link:

    Thanks apple.

    My two favorites are TJ's Brown Rice Medley (this is my all-time favorite), with California Rice Trilogy, coming in a close second. They are sturdy, nutty, wild-rice mixtures that leave regular brown and white rice lacking. But when I'm in a real hurry, I do use the quick-cooking kind -a trick I learned when I took a microwave cooking class in the early 80's, is to throw in a boullion cube with the water. It provides an extra flavor boost if you don't mind the salt.

    Wow, now I'm jealous. We have no fun stores in Texas to shop at, only Kroger and Albertsons.

    I saw Trader Joe's on the food network. Looks like a great place to shop.

    I second the bouillion cube and you can get low sodium ones. It does give it extra flavor.

    Sometimes I substitute chicken or beef broth from a can for my water when I make rice.

    rosie, I'll use chicken broth too. It definitely makes a diffrence.

    roses, I'll try the bullion cube idea.

    I'm in far, far north Texas - 5 miles from the Oklahoma border. If I want excitement I can drive to the Piggly Wiggly the next town over.

    The brown rice I made the other night was Success rice. I remember using that brand as a newlywed (looong ago), but I haven't made plain rice in a while. My family prefers rice-a-roni, with all its high-fat goodness.

    Dinahann, my California family ships me a Trader Joe's care package every couple months. If you know of something you want, let me know and I'll have them throw it in. I can meet you down at the Piggly Wiggly and give it to you.
    Getting lost will help you find yourself.

    lildago, that would be wonderful. Now if I could just get Mariner to mail me some fresh salmon from Pike's Market I'd be in heaven.
