Trader Joe's in the Midwest!

For all of you misplaced West Coast people like us, you probably miss the fun grocery shopping at Trader Joe's. There are now 2 Trader Joe's in Northern Illinois. One is in Lincolnshire (went there last weekend) and the other near O'Hare. Check their website ( for maps. IT WAS FABULOUS!

For anyone who loves to eat, loves to cook, and loves the adventure of food (like all of you Chowhounds) this is a MUST! Not only do they have some really unusual things, but their prices are excellent. While we were there we met some other shoppers from Indiana (a 2 hour drive from there) and several from southern Illinois.
