- homemade granola

- seeing the places that our daughter goes (getting groceries at Trader Joe's)

- chai tea

- apricot toothpaste

- banana chocolate chip muffins

- riding in the back with Samuel

- the kinds of products Trader Joe's sells

- pineapple salsa

- interesting new products like Peach Salsa and Layered Hummus

- finding a parking place close by

- Thai vegetable dumplings
