    Oh yeah, that would get expensive! I am assuming you don't have Trader Joes where you live?

So I'm thinking that I can just mix prepared pesto with some mayo and some chopped chicken. What do you guys think? You can mix Pesto with mayo right? Or do you think the oil in the Pesto willl separate from the mayo?
    Yes, you can mix the both if you like. I would however make grilled chicken first to add really good flavor. I take boneless, skinless breasts, season with seasoned pepper and garlic powder or garlic salt - then grill a few minutes on each side. You can then slice it in chunks or in large slices, if you wish. You could either spread one side with mayo and one side with pesto, or mix the 2. Either way, the grilled chicken will make it fabulous. Enjoy.

    No trader joes here. I wish. I think the closest one is in Atlanta which is at best 2 hours away. And depending on where in Atlanta it is, could be much further. I am so jealous of all you guys with Trader Joes.

    I consider myself lucky we have Whole Foods and Fresh Market (which is just 2 blocks from me and I now must make myself stay out of there as much as possible as my grocery budget can get blown quite quickly on just one small bag of stuff. )

    Re: General Food Talk

    We are getting a store called "Fresh and Easy" sometime next year. It is supposed to be close to Trader Joes but not as fancy. You bag your own groceries and the aisles are bare but if it cuts down on costs, I am all for it. Is anyone familiar with this store? I hear they're from Europe.

    Has anyone on the East Coast been to a Wegman's? It's supposedly like a combination Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, according to my boyfriend, who stopped at one and loved it. Yes, we're people who will go scope out new grocery stores for fun. We don't have a Wegman's here though.

    Oh Lucy. Wegmans is WONDERFUL. They started in Western New York, so I grew up with them. I've never been to a better grocery store in my life. They have all the good parts of Whole Foods/TJ's, but also the more "normal" stuff, and you don't have to necessarily spend Whole Foods-style money there. They're generally really large, and have great prepared foods and a great bakery and wonderful fresh seafood and and and ... really, the list goes on and on. They're also supposed to be a great company to work for, with excellent benefits and all sorts of perks that your typical grocery stores don't generally offer these days.

    Grr, Amanda, then I'm jealous! The boyfriend did mention their delicious prepared foods. A town about an hour north of me is due to get a Wegman's next year. I am up there for business sometimes so at least I can visit, but from the sound of it, I wish we'd gotten a Wegman's instead of the Whole Foods that just opened.
