I Love Costco

CIMG0428

I can’t believe how fast the weekend went by!  The food highlight of my weekend was a trip to Costco, where I acquired many exciting items.  The first was surprisingly tasty guacamole in vacuum sealed packages.  I froze two containers and broke into the third.  I spread some on a slice of toasted Ezekiel bread to complement my leftover seafood soup. 

Exciting acquisition #2 was a very tasty bottle of wine.  I rarely buy wine anywhere other than Costco because I think the deals are so great there and I’m rarely disappointed.  I confess that I am one of those silly people who picks wines in large part based on prettiness of label or catchiness of brand name, but I luck out often enough with this strategy that I’m disinclined to change.  I tried out some “7 Deadly Zins” which turned out to be very drinkable and yummy.  Even the Lemonator liked it.  I’m not one to get fancy with my wine descriptions, but it tasted almost cinnamon-y to me.  I ate a piece of dark chocolate with it for dessert and the pairing worked very nicely.

The third exciting acquisition was a large jar of Costco pesto, which was put to use on a whole wheat pita pizza for the Lemonator.  I had a taste of his, and it was delicious.  My pizza, on the right, was tomato sauce, part-skim mozzarella, spinach, garlic and crushed red pepper.

I’m heading to bed…my judge hears motions tomorrow, so it should be an interesting day.  I hope everyone had a good weekend!
