    only thing I buy from TJ's is instant brown rice, eggs, wild salmon, and on some occassions their beef bulkogi or tri tip.
     
  4. They make instant brown rice? :eek4: How long does it take to cook? Mine takes forever.

    imo the trader joes frozen chicken bags are CRAP, like they get the scrap meat from foster farms and throw it in a bag.

    the quality of the meat in either of the tender or breast bags are horrible.

    i do have a forean i cook chciekn and turkey burgers on it
     
  13. :werd: I bought non-Foster Farms frozen chicken in a bag recently because it was cheap and they were covered in fat that I had to cut off and they really weren't as good. I now buy the Foster Farms frozen ones...they come in individual vacuum packed freezer bags and you get like 10 or so in a box. It's cheaper than buying the fresh ones packaged in 4-5 breasts/package and you get them in freezer bags. :eek4:

    price difference? i'm poor and in college, i have to work a little harder just to save a couple bucks :wtc::wtc:

    edit: normally i just buy the costco bags and freeze them fuckers
     
  16. werd, ya im in college too. paying my own way FTL.

    The frozen ones are cheaper than the fresh ones, plus I am gonna freeze them anyway so having them in the individual bags makes it that much easier to freeze/thaw. They were ~$4.50/lb IIRC instead of the usual ~$6.00-$6.50/lb for fresh. I'll have to check next time I purchase though.

    I had an asian roommate for a while and I fell in love with this stuff.

    Rice cooker = $40
    10lb bag of rice = $10
    Makes like unlimited servings of cheap cheap healthy rice + is practically 0 effort. Rice goes well with practically any sauce (or is great on it's own) so you can't get bored!
