I think I’ve talked about it before, but it’s really interesting people watching at Costco… If you’re like me, you walk every aisle of the store and look at pretty much every item on the shelves and as you’re doing that you’ll notice that there are other people doing the same thing as well…
(though I’m not as cute as that little guy) They’re scanning every aisle for deals, looking at their list, bumping into friends and chatting away, dividing the list and conquering the shopping task “OK, I’ll get the mini-wheats, you go back and get the grape juice” debating with their partner about the need for a Kuerig coffee maker (not my thing, but to each their own. As you know I like/we have the Bodum, and the Starbucks Cafe Verona whole bean coffee has become the house standard. No exceptions!!! Believe me I’ve tried sneaking a few different beans into a bag and it was noticed… I tried though…) Anyways, I find it interesting that every week that I inevitably wind up “following” a few couples though the store just by being behind them doing their thing and having the same “Costco map”. We all have a set map/plan I think,.. What’s yours?
As much as I do love cooking at home, we went out for dinner on Saturday night… Crazy right! It was my partners parents 51st anniversary and they wanted to come up here (from Barrie) and spend it with us which was nice, so we went out and had great evening & dinner out… No dishes, no cooking… awesome, right?!?! (except for the Margarita mishap beforehand where I spilled lime juice and honey on the kitchen floor, whoops! We’re still finding sticky spots in the kitchen despite cleaning it 4 or 5 times, yikes!) Anyhow, we all enjoyed our appetizers and wine, and the steaks (for those of us who ordered steaks) were cooked perfect, it was all delicious! But I have to say as much fun as it was, we had just as much fun (if not more) prepping and cooking dinner at home the next night. I love being in the kitchen, I love cooking, I like knowing how my food is cooked, and where the food is from. Speaking of that, we needed to get garlic because the garlic we got smelled like it was living in a basement for years… We have problems getting good garlic this time of year , and I really dislike that…please bring the farmers market back!!! I need local garlic! It seems that anytime we buy garlic from the supermarket that has been imported it always has a funky smell & taste. Anyone else run into this problem? Or are we just being picky because we love garlic so much?
Garlic braids, and Halloween themed cooking shows… What’s not to love about that!
On that note I think I’ve hit the wall… I should probably get to bed…Been a busy few weeks… Time to catch some Z’s
