Unfortunately we don’t have a Trader Joe’s here. Plus I can’t drive (neither can my Mom, who lives here too), & even if we had 1 & I (or Mom) could drive, I have physical medical issues which keep me confined (though I hate the severity of that word) here. I also can’t cook for myself, & my Mom stopped cooking when we moved here, as far as I know, & she eats the stuff provided in her end of the facility instead. And we don’t really seem to have anybody on staff whose function is to help residents with stuff like shopping if they can’t get out themselves (my Mom is in an independent living apartment, but it’s still hard to go anywhere since she usually has to wait until the facility is giving transportation wherever she wants/needs to go) I’m in more like a continuing hospital-type care situation in the same facility).
I did find out we’re supposed to have beef stroganoff over noodles for either our lunch or dinner special today. I’m gonna try to get an extra order of plain noodles with that if the noodles & sauce aren’t already mixed (we have a lot of “something over noodles” type entrees here & I’ve never had a problem getting the noodles just plain if I didn’t like what they were being served with) & ask for a lemon wedge on the side, although I don’t think there’s anything else on the menu that requires lemon (I drink Cherry Pepsi) & it might look weird (we do have a daily seafood special, which might help). I’ll let you know what happens.
