My Favorite Costco Food
I am a single person, living alone. It does not make much sense to have a Costco membership for $55 a year, because everything one buys is in bulk.
This bulk-buying is great on items, such as toilet paper. I have also purchased the organic pasta in six-1 pound packages. I split them with a family member.
However, for me to go through 50-pounds of beans, or a case of tuna, just does not make sense to me. As well, I do not have a freezer that will hold that much of any frozen product. I am trying to get past this food-hoarding, so Costco mega-sizes do not help.
I really should think about asking my sister if she wants to start to go with me and do a food "share." She has a 7-year-old son. She also has a 20-year-old daughter who is pregnant and living with her beau. It might make some sense for us all.
My favorite item is the roasted, rotisserie chicken. At $4.99 per bird, I usually buy two at a time. I slice them up, freeze the meat (both white and dark), and I boil the two carcasses to make stock and use the meat from the bones to make chicken enchiladas.
I boiled the two I had with wilted celery, a few carrots, some onion, bay leaf, and thyme on Friday night. I need to bring it back to a boil, cool down, pick the bones. Once I strain it, I plan on making some chicken barley soup, and chicken cheese enchiladas. I will have enough to make to share with my 82-year-old friend.
Of course, this favorite food does not include the Costco hot dog and soda meal for $1.50. That is in another category all to itself!
