Costco is way more fun with kids because they:
a. Don’t get embarrassed grabbing five samples from each station for their favorite aunt. PS the tortellini samples were amazing.
b. I can spend more time in the toy aisles without the other shoppers thinking I am a creeper for lurking around in the kids section for an hour (PS I think I know what I am going to get Billy for his upcoming birthday).
c. They beg their mom for ice cream and churros so that I don’t have to throw a kicking a screaming fit when I ask for ice cream and Billy tells me, ‘Janae, you have already had more sugar today than you should in a week, maybe we should chose something good for our bodies.’ Little does he know that ice cream healed me.
I don’t know what is up with me and sharing my food lately……..I shared my ice cream with a four year old that may like sugar just as much as me (okay, we all know that is an exageration). We are even friends after the experience and I only had to tell her to stick to her chocolate side twice.
I did steal a bite from this little one’s churro when she wasn’t looking and it was heavenly.
You know you have a problem when you get a rush from stealing your niece’s churro.
Dinner was at the parentals of course. Even though the ice cream at Costco filled my belly quite nicely, I jumped up and down for a few minutes to make room for this meal because those chicken skewers looked way too good to pass up. I put them on a salad mix with carrots, snap peas, bbq sauce and ranch.
After a riveting game of Wheel of Fortune with my family (I am 99% sure my mom calls my brother on the East Coast to get all of the puzzle answers before it is played here because she would win so fast with like 3 letters on the board).
Then it was off to baseball.
My lil’ slugger played so well! They won both games! I offered to take the team out to Pizza Hut after the games but they looked at me kind of funny. I guess I will just have to bring Capri Suns and orange slices next week.
What do you use for salad dressing most often?
-Salsa and bbq sauce and when we win the lottery I will have 1 cup of fresh guacamole as my salad dressing every day of my life.
What are some of your weekly grocery staples?
-At Costco we always get eggs, milk, broccoli, spinach, bread, bananas, apples, yogurt and tortillas. I nearly had a meltdown yesterday when they were out of bananas and put my whole schedule out of whack.
Churro, Donut, Cupcake or a Fresh Cookie?
-1st- Cupcake (as long as the frosting is heavenly), 2nd- CHURRO (especially Disneyland ones), 3rd-donut (maple bar with sprinkles please) and last a fresh cookie.
