And Away We “Costco”

On Sunday, my beloved Martin and I had the opportunity to go shopping with our friends Scott and Joe at Costco – it was Martin’s first visit to Costco. In case anyone is unfamiliar with Costco, Costco is a “member’s only” buying club – mostly groceries but a smattering of everything else: apparel, jewelry, electronics, rugs, vinyl siding, mattresses – if you can imagine it, you can probably buy it at Costco – and in BULK…

See, that is the advantage/disadvantage of Costco – everything comes in HUGE packages, which is great for a family but not so great for just two guys living together. I mean, today we bought twenty-four (24) delicious pretzel-style sandwich buns:

We went to Costco to grab some paper towels. Oh yeah, we got that, too (twelve rolls!)

I am still researching recipes centered around Brussels sprouts and broccoli!!!
