Trader Joes dinner ideas?

I feel like I always get the same stuff, and though I love everything I get from there, just wondering if I am missing something. Looking to try something new.

Can you share your go-to TJ dinners? I would list what I usually get, but I can't seem to think of all of it!

Thanks!

Trader Joes dinner ideas?

Just this week I bought and really enjoyed the following from the freezer section:

-Szechuan Beef & Broccoli
-Orange Chicken
-Kung Pao Chicken
-Spearsan Risotto (I add grilled chicken to make this a full meal)
-Mix together one container of Latin Style Black Bean Soup, one bag of the Chimmichurri Rice, can of black beans and chicken andouille sausage (very yummy and I got the idea from tasting it there)

I've done a bunch of their appetizers and cheeses for dinner when I've had family over.

I made salmon the other night and served their saag paneer as a side. DH loved it.

Lasagna.

I also get their eggplant and serve it with a side of pasta.

I also like their simmer sauces in the crockpot with chicken.

Turkey meatballs are also okay on a roll for a quick dinner with melted cheese.

How do you have the general tso's sauce? Do you make your own chicken?

Yes, I usually coat chicken pieces (boneless skinless breast) in cornstarch and pan fry them so they crisp up. Then pour sauce over and mix it all up until a little thick. SO good. I've also made it without the cornstarch but I prefer with.
