Perhaps you remember my very hilarious and opinionated Grandma Lenny. She's 93 years old and she lives across the street from her favorite store, Trader Joe's.
Due to the pandemic, my grandmother hasn't been leaving her house much. But recently, she made her first Trader Joe's run in nearly seven months. Just look at the grocery list in hand and the joy in her face.
But don't worry! I've been delivering Grandma Lenny her favorite T.J.'s products* during the pandemic. She set up a little dining area in her garage where we sit together, and she serves me Trader Joe's assorted crackers and Dunkers and other snacks that have been stashed away in her pantry for years.
Grandma Lenny very rarely allows anyone inside her house these days, but on those few occasions, she writes strict rules on sticky notes. Like this one that says, "You'll have no dessert if you forget your serving spoons or mask." Signed, "The Boss."
Anyway, this past weekend I stopped by Grandma's with a surprise delivery full of popular Trader Joe's snacks. Like the rest of us, she has gotten very into ~athleisure~ during quarantine. I found her in a velour Calvin Klein tracksuit and vintage Juicy couture beanie, which she dressed up with a brooch. I asked her if she was up for a taste test and, of course, she said yes.
1. Sea Salted Saddle Potato Chips
