We go to Costco every week. Obviously because they don't sell things in big enough quantities and we tend to run out quickly.
You already know how I feel about Costco. I am deeply and madly in love with Costco. I want to marry Costco and have little Costco babies. We have a dysfunctional relationship, Costco and I.
Costco is pretty close to Duane's office so he'll sometimes do the shopping and let me tell you, he comes home with things that aren't on the list. Things like flowers - for ME! Flowers for no other reason than I am his queen and he worships the very air I breathe. Or chocolate covered raisins which I'd never put on the list because they'd last, like, five minutes. Yes, the giant, 75 pound container of raisins. Five minutes. I'm a pig.
Back to my rant. Duane will come home from Costco and I'm all,
"So, what'd you get? Huh? Is this it? This looks like what was on the list. Where's the other stuff? The not-on-the-list stuff?"
I'm always secretly hoping for a 52-inch plasma screen TV or diamond earrings or something. Hey, quit judging me for my materialistic shallowness.
Anyway, last week he got home from Costco, unloaded and kept these away from me for a couple of days. They weren't on the list. It wasn't until the kids asked if they could have an ice cream sandwich that I got a heads up.
I said, "We don't have any ice cream sandwiches."
They said, "Yes we do. There's a ginormous box in the outside freezer."
So, of course I went to look and I obviously need to check the freezer more often. There was the huge box. I have to be honest here, ice cream is not my first choice when it comes to treats. I'd rather have a brownie, but in a pinch, ice cream will do.
I decided, reluctantly, to try one of the sandwiches. Honestly - "skinny cow"? That doesn't exactly make my taste buds sit up and take notice. Now, "cream-filled, butter-laden, sugar-coma cow"? That'll work.
. . . and you know, it wasn't bad. Not bad at all. I decided to finish it off while I investigated the contents of the other freezer in the garage. Who knows what else I could have missed?
Oh look. Snowballs.
Snowballs on steroids. Thank you Katie.
Just another little peek into my life. There's also vodka in the freezer. Shoulda taken a picture of that.
