    Gone are the days of pre-packed lunches by mom or a quick run through my college dining hall's hot food line. It’s just me against the big, busy, and expensive working world now. What’s a girl to eat, with so little time and energy, and a whole lotta' living expenses? One way I cope is by turning some of my favorite snacks into meals. Boom.

    Perhaps some of you have tried your hands at this completely acceptable practice, as well? For those of you especially lucky enough to live in the vicinity of an almighty Trader Joe’s, I’ve put together five of my favorite go-to TJ’s snack-to-meal recipes. Requiring few extra ingredients and consisting of products you may already have in your fridge and pantry, these dinner ideas are fast, easy, and cheap — perfect for your post-work feasting pleasure. So read on, and keep on snacking.
