Everyone in my family loves carrots. So one year I made creamed carrots for the holiday meal. Surprisingly, everyone loved them. Aside from a boiled dinner, it is the most asked for veggie even today. One year my daughter asked me for the recipe. She couldn't believe how simple it was.

Trying to please two sides of a family if very difficult. Don't forget to consider potatoes as a veggie. And usually petite peas are a favorite with everyone. Even creamed peas. Saves the eater from chasing them around the plate. The kids like to mix them with their mashed potatoes.

Yes! I get to please an aunt who is set in her ways, a Mamma who is sometimes a bit cuckoo and a Papa who has a really SICK sense of humor and likes to make fun of food.

Whee.

With love,

If there is, I can't find it.
I found a lot of sites saying there's one in Erie, but I can't actually find an address, phone number or location.

My bad. If you go to the Costco website, the nearest one is 76 miles away in Canada.

Pac, are any of these locations near you? Costco Locations & Hours in Pennsylvania

Of course, you need to go with someone who has a Costco membership card.

No, not really. Thanks for looking.
And it's a membership store? So it's like Sam's Club then. Maybe that's why we don't have one. We have a Sam's. I got rid of their membership years ago after I stopped going there every few weeks. It just wasn't paying for itself. Plus everything was in bulk. They had food, but not cooked chicken at the time I went there.

I need to crush 1/5 cups of ginger snap cookies for the crust for the Pumpkin Cheesecake for my daughter's holiday dinner. I keep coming here to where the computer is to get the directions and list of other ingredients needed. But I keep getting sidetracked by DC. I need to put the 'puter to sleep so I can get something done.
