    you’re a natural Bo. I think you should just travel, take pictures, and write a book about your adventures.

  3. Trader Joes has some very good blueberries. I love their frozen ones on homemade waffles.

    Nothing beats freshly picked blueberries though. I think blueberries and strawberries are some of the things that help us realized how blessed we are to be alive. Two of my favorite things in life.

    Ah, yes… those are the Trader Joe’s berries I’m talkin’ ’bout… check the bag and they will tell you where they are from. Wild blueberries from Maine (and that region) are tiny and very flavorful.

    We eat a lot of strawberries, fresh, from a stand on Highway 49 between Auburn and Grass Valley. We have learned that the best strawberries are found at stands identified by huge signs painted on plywood with many words misspelled in incomplete sentences, using questionable syntax.

  5. If I’m not mistaken, the Trader Joe’s here has 3 types – one frozen organic, one frozen from Oregon, and one fresh. I’ll have to check the bags.

    I’m in Walnut Creek now. Not sure if you know where that is. If not, it’s a suburb of Oakland, about 15-20 minutes east (assuming no traffic).

    Too funny about the strawberries. I’ve found the same thing. The best food often comes from good folks who flunked spelling.

    Dude… been to Walnut Creek many times… they’ve sure gentrified the downtown… there’s even a *hush* Apple Store there.

    They have three different varieties of blueberries there? We’ve noticed that they will actually tell you where the berries are from on the bags… like they’re careful to get it right with each batch. Hey, try an experiment… I’d be interested in your findings. Do a blind test between the Oregon berries and the frozen ones from the northeast/Canada.

    Have you tried Trader Joe’s sushi? I have been meaning to for a while, but our nearest TJs is about 45 minutes away and we’re usually heading to a taqueria somewhere.
