Enough about my spiritual crisis! Let's talk about my love for Costco.
I have a strong relationship with Costco. I'm pretty sure we were made for each other. I'm equal parts cheap-skate and spender, while he has everything I could ever need or desire, and all at a discount. He might pray on my weaknesses, but I'd like to think our dedication to each other is mutual.
I used to visit Costco about once every month or so, but the past year I just can't seem to keep away. For example, after returning from visiting my family two weeks ago I went to see Costco three times in less than a week. That is quite a feat since I'm usually hauling three young children, so rest assured, I take this relationship quite seriously!
Since it's clear to anyone that I'm obsessed, I'd like to post here and there about some of my Costco favorites. While I'm a huge fan of their pizza (not so much the churros), this first post is dedicated to veggies.
I know, BOR-ING! But I truly think that Costco's vegetables can't be beat and I can get the best bang for my buck there. Lately, instead of buying their pre-bagged frozen veggies, I've been buying a bunch of fresh vegetables separately and once I get home, I chop them up, mix them together some huge bowls, distribute them to ziplock bags, and freezing them until I need them.
I always include broccoli and mushrooms, but the other vegetables switch in and out depending on what they have. I usually do carrot, but this was my veggie haul from my latest trip.
I roast a big bag once a week using olive oil, salt, and pepper. Once roasted, I use the vegetables on top of salads, in rice bowls, stir-frys, quiches, pastas, and as side dishes for dinner.
