Trader Joe’s Crab Cakes & Activia Giveaway

Happy Friday to all! How was your week? Mine was pretty good! Still trying to get used to balancing taking care of Kaylin, Frank, the house, cooking, etc. Most days have been great, a few have been challenging. The highlight of my week so far was breakfast with Amelia yesterday.  We ate at Sea Biscuit where I had my first post pregnancy runny egg (YUM!).  Amelia also brought me some delicious banana bread (thank you!!).

I still have been easing my way back into cooking (hence the lack of recipe posts- more next week, I promise!)  and have been enjoying easy cheats whenever possible. One of my most favorite recent cheats was Trader Joes Maryland Style Crab Cakes.


I bought these the day TJs opened and have been eager to try them. They cook up in about 4 minutes in a hot pan. Served with rice, fruit and a piece of Amelia’s banana bread:



Verdict? Super fishy…. I think this is the first TJs product I didn’t like!!

A while back I told you that I was participating in the Activia 2-week challenge.  According to the Activia website:

“We make this delicious Activia low-fat yogurt with wholesome, organic ingredients and live active cultures, including Bifidus Regularis®. Activia helps regulate your digestive system when eaten daily for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.”


As someone who has struggled with “tummy issues” in the past, I definitely found that Activia helped keep me more regular! Want to try the challenge for yourself? 5 readers will win a set of coupons good for 2 weeks worth of Organic Activia yogurt. You DO NOT need to have a blog to enter! Leave a comment on this  post by Wednesday, August 24, telling me how you would incorporate Activia into your daily eats (in your breakfast bowl? as a side at lunch?). 5 winners will be randomly chosen!
