And another of our Costco favorites is the Paisley Farm bean salad that I discovered a number of years ago. It's a quick side dish ..and I buy it by the case. I've learned that it is a seasonal product & they may not carry it in the winter months...so I stockpile. There's usually a jar in the fridge...and I often throw a scoop or two of beans into our lunch salads.
Toss it up with some ranch dressing...yield one quick and yummy salad. While I'm there I always grab a bag of their European style romaine...for just over three dollars, we can eat a lot of salads.
And if you ever see Mrs. Chudleigh's apple blossoms in the Costco freezer section with the desserts, be sure to try them. They are a flaky flower shaped pastry, filled with apples, wrapped up and topped with an apricot glaze and crunchy crumble topping. They are just yummy! I haven't actually found any there for some time...M & M Meats has individually wrapped ones, which are much the same (just a little pricier).
Another of my all-time favorite Costco purchases has to be these boxed greeting cards.
A box of 50 beautiful cards are around $17....but they were on special this time, so I came home with this box for $12.95.
The box itself is great for storing greeting cards...all filed according to occasion. I buy about one box a year...there's always a card handy when needed, and many are blank inside so I can write my own message.
When I see the price tag on a 'designer' card these days...I am quite happy with my Costco cards!
I made my Costco run last week...and I was quite pleased with my great buys. As usual, I found all kinds of things that I had no intention of buying...but the deals were too good to pass up. Is that smart shopping?
Here's a 'smart shopper' I met in the Safeway parking lot the other night. I couldn't resist a photo...just too cute! I'm thinking that is the car I should have for my Costco run...I couldn't get carried away.
I'm off to do some baking...cooking...cleaning (no shopping today). Have a great day!
