Sure, Princess. Rub it in. It would take me 3 days to get to Costco on my bike, then I'd be too tired to ride home! And I'd need a bigger basket!

Oh, btw, who won the Extreme Scrabble Challenge? ( I think I know...)

It was a draw, it's always a draw...but we've been playing Scrabble for 30 years and we are evenly matched in the vocabulary department. Stopped keeping track when we passed 2000 games almost 15 years ago.

We have a BJ's 3 miles up the road but I'd rather make the 50 minute drive to the Costco! (plus it give us an excuse to go to the DQ for lunch or dinner).

I've been holding off on the next trip because the freezer and pantry are full right now (54-cent / lb turkeys, 89-cent boxes of stuffing, and canned soups, gravies, ect. from Thanksgiving sales) so unless I can find room for another freezer and pantry I'm going to to have to suffer the withdrawal symptoms.

Costco is only 5-10 minutes away (depending on traffic), so we usually go once every two weeks. Usually we get 4 cases of San Pellegrino, olive oil, chicken and parm. Sometimes they have a seafood set-up and we pick up a couple items.

On a side note, a brand new "Whole Foods" is being built close by and the anticipation is killing me!

I know you already made your trip this year, but next time you go, please try the Kirkland Signature chocolate covered caramel macadamia clusters if you have them at your location. I don't know where you live, but they're only available out west. I wish we could get them here. I miss them so...

Ooh, you are mean to a toothless old broad who can't eat them anymore.... I wonder if I can chop them enough in the processor to be able to munch them.

PF, I have learned with Dad that you can process almost anything and still enjoy it!

My new favourite Costo items are Procuitto (forget the brand, they have two) as it is great for DH's sandwiches, Tuxedo Cake (yes I am a cake baker but this is devine!), Blueberry "Unwine", Agave Syrup and Balderson's aged white cheddar (no this isn't new but always a favourite).

We buy a lot of bulk items there and I am usually shopping once every two weeks. It is a five minute drive and that's only because of two busy intersections!

Yes, but, but, I do miss the crunch!

Thanks Sprout! Our closest CC is Geneva, IL. I did pick up a bag of Lindor Truffles, intending to sprinkle them in gift bags. Ha. Fat chance, they're quickly disappearing.
