Care to share your Costco grocery list?
I'm curious to know what groceries people buy at Costco. I'm only feeding a family of two so I don't normally try new things at Costco as my storage space is quite limited. Is there anything at Costco that is a must-try?
My usual Costco shopping list includes:
- beef tenderloin
- mixed greens salad in a box
- Piroline chocolate-hazelnut cookies
- Kawartha Ice Cream - Moose Tracks
- Japanese green tea
- whole black pepper
- sweet potato fries
I'd love to know what you buy!
Thanks in advance!
coffee - the green bag Kirkland brand
all bran buds - cheaper than anywhere else
hummus - we easily go through 2 containers/week
mixed salad greens
sometimes the Kirkland Kettle chips, but i try to resist
Ghiradelli brownie mix
I always check the cheese case, usually there is at least one good deal
parmigiano reggiano - I usually split a big block with my mother
love their chicken pot pie when we have family over
Campari tomatoes (the only decent ones in my area available in the winter)
Berries -- the blackberries are usually the best deal
Spring mix or Romaine hearts
Mushrooms - button and baby portabellas
Rotisserie chicken (often)
Cream puffs (our store still has them, but in a smaller package
Aidells chicken meatballs
Lobster or crab dip
Their chocolate layer cake (not the sheet cake)
Sometimes the Kettle chips
Cheese: Brie, Comte, and fresh Parmesan
Large size Pom Juice (refrigerated section)
Their lentil thingee - somewhere between a soup and a stew - V.good
Quiches and stuffed grape leaves in the refrigerated section. Grape leaves are particularly good if they have them
Texmati brown rice
Manitou dried mushroom blend
Frozen shrimp wonton soup with noodles
For the Dogs
Kirkland Weight Control dog food
Kingdom Pets Chicken Jerky
Pig Ears ( but haven't seen them lately)
Boneless Chicken Thighs
Liberty Yogurt (regular or greek, depending on that week's price and preference)
Turkey Pepperoni Sticks
Frozen Broccoli florets
You don't like the chicken salad, noodle soup, or pot pie they make from their rotisserie chickenS?
Shopping for one, plus dogs:
Kirkland Chicken & Rice kibble
Kirkland canned tuna
store-baked 2-pack breads: roasted garlic loaf or multigrain
store-made chicken salad
store-made chicken pot pie
vitamins and supplements
cheap wine for cooking
potatoes and onions (only in winter when it's cool enough to store for at least a month)
Dubliner, Paneer, and Grana Padano cheeses
Ling-Ling frozen peking ravioli (chicken&veg)
Of the three, I'd rank the soup last. Needs more onion and the noodles and carrots are too soft. The saltiness of the chicken comes through in the pot pie but not in the chicken salad. Still, the pot pie filling is delicious. I have to freeze slices because it's so large. I have never had the chicken caesar salad.
Just got the soup last night, I've had it before so I know what to do. Added onion, garlic, some white meat from the rotisserie chicken I also bought, and a little bit of the organic frozen corn I also buy from Costco. The soup was for a sick family member who loves to have gallons of soup when he is sick. I know fussing with food that is supposed to be heat and eat might be losing some of the point, but I can't resist playing with my food anyway. Used the rest of the rotisserie chicken to toss in the leftover chicken tikki masala that I also got from Costco. Anyone try the prepared chili that has been appearing next to the soup?
I gather that's about standard protein for dog food. In addition to potatoes there's
"Salmon meal, sweet potatoes, peas, potatoes, canola oil, potato protein, potato fiber, natural flavor, flaxseed, ocean fish meal, salt, choline chloride, dried chicory root, tomatoes, blueberries, raspberries, yucca schidigera extract, dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus casei fermentation product, dried Lactobacillus plantarum fermentation product, dried Trichoderma longibrachiatum fermentation extract, vitamin E supplement, iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, copper proteinate, ferrous sulfate, zinc sulfate, copper sulfate, potassium iodide, thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin A supplement, biotin, biotin, calcium pantothenate, manganese sulfate, sodium selenite, pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), vitamin B12 supplement, riboflavin (vitamin B2), vitamin D supplement, folic acid."
Our vet likes it and the dogs are healthy and not overweight.
Boneless pork chops
Multigrain crackers, the gluten free ones with sesame seeds
Cheese -- parm, old cheddar, jalapeno jack
Tzatziki -- delicious and so much easier than making it myself
Frozen sea scallops
