Adventures in veggie land & bulk shoppin’….

 Sooooo today is Saturday, and it’s cloudy/close to rainy/humid-er than a freakin’ sauna — however none of these things stopped this lady from headin’ over to the local farmer’s market down the street!  It was a good day and I even made some nice new farmer friends 🙂  Check out some pics from the spread, you know you wanna!

 So there I went, to the market, and it was awesome per usual and I filled my TJs reusable bag just like any good foodie would do…. wanna see?

 On the way home I got the fine idea to go to Costco… on a SATURDAY… you peeps know what I’m sayin’ with this one.  There would probably be more people stuffed into that warehouse of bulk items worse than there were people stuffed into Firebirds waiting to eat for hours last night haha.  But alas, friends, today was not that kinda day and cookinfanatic actually didn’t walk out of that place with nothing bc the lines were too long only to be carrying a large swirl fro-yo (FYI this is the usual weekend protocol at Costco for this lady)… Instead I was able to get my hands on some swanky good swag:  Prawns & scallops for tonight, hummus for 15, salsa for 20… and obvi some wines (red & white both… although they mislabeled the white and it was more pricey than I thought grrr hate when that happens!  guess I’ll just have to grin and bear it right 😉 )
 
 
Costco:  you're either feeding 10 peeps or eatin' the same thing for days ;)
