Confession: I Am A Costco Addict

Pin It

I feel very confessional today. 

I love Costco.  Maybe even a little more than I love my family.  Did I type that out loud?  Seriously, I go to Costco at least once a week and always come home with all sorts of awesome things — and not just stuff that come in 400-pack boxes. 

Here are some things I picked up yesterday:

 

Gluten-free, free-range, super easy-peasy, and pretty tasty.  I threw one pack in the freezer and will use the other pack throughout the week.  I packed a few meatballs with some leftover braised cabbage and brought it to work.

  

 Ito-en makes my favorite bottled Japanese tea and I love having these bags around to make green tea on the fly.

I eat tons of guacamole so I’m happy this comes in a three pack. 

 

Our Costco stocks some top-shelf cookbooks along with the crap.  I spied signed copies of Michael Chiarello’s new Bottega cookbook but it was next to Sandra Lee’s latest cookbook.  I guess you have to take the good with the shitty.  Come holiday season, they bring out the really fancy cookbooks like Alinea, The French Laundry Cookbook, etc.  I hope they stock Modernist Cuisine when it comes out…

Other products I regularly pick up at Costco:

  • Grimaud Farms duck confit
  • Large bag of Haas avocados (on the Clean Fifteen so I’m okay with them being conventionally grown)
  • Large bag of bell peppers (yes, I know it’s on the Dirty Dozen list but sometimes I can’t help myself – especially when I want to roast off a bunch of them)
  • Amylu Sweet Carmelized Onion Chicken Burgers
  • Rosie Fully Cooked Organic Free Range Chicken Strips

*UPDATE 7/11: I don’t buy the chicken meatballs, chicken burgers, or free range chicken strips anymore because there’s sugar and/or bad oils in ‘em.

    Plus, you can return almost anything (save some electronics) at anytime with no box or receipt — even years later.  I’m sold.
