I had never been to Atlanta before today. I've changed planes a few times at the airport there, but today was my first visit to the city itself. The Midtown Trader Joe's was not hard to find, and actually was fairly convenient to the interstate.
Here's a view of the skyline from the car. Thanks, Carol, for driving today!
Trader Joe's is my favorite small grocery. They carry many organic items, and many low-cost Trader Joe brand foods. I was looking specifically for some granola-type snack bars that are Weight Watcher "point" friendly, and are under $2.00 per box. They did not have the specific bars I was looking for, but they did have a similar bar for the same price, so I'll try these. They also carry a great salsa, and I picked up several jars of that.
After the three of us shopped all the store aisles, we piled our bags in the car and started shopping for a place to have lunch before heading back to Birmingham. We ended up at a Mellow Mushroom, which does have more than just pizza. We all had salads and a half sandwich that was excellent.
