    Ice cream on top of ice cream is a great idea! Thanks – I really need this one.

    I’m dying to go to Costco! I don’t have a membership but I think I may have to spring for one!

    And Cuban food is one of my favorites; I had a Cuban sandwich on Friday night and it was delish!

    Hope you have a great week!

    WHERE IS THIS PLACE? My fam and I drove up and down 436 for about an hour the other night trying to find it. Is it tucked in a shopping center or are we all just blind? Your meal looks delicious, at least!

    I wish Costco would miraculously open in some magical spot in NYC. Clearly, there is not place in the city large enough to hold a Costco, but unless a part of Central Park is going to become a construction site (another clearly not happening occurrence), than I guess I am going to have to continue living without bulk shopping! πŸ™ wahhh!

    Sounds like a perfect day to me! I am a Sam’s Club girl, just because its closer – my husband still cannot spend less than $100 even if we just need paper towels! πŸ˜€

    Sounds like a prductive and effective way to shop and then split in into 3 ways! I like that idea of putting icer cream ON TOP of fruit!

    LOVE those salmon burgers, I had one last night! I hit up Costco today too, but the only fun thing we got were Kashi bars, the rest was household stuff.
    Can’t wait to try out that fruit idea next time I have ice cream.

    Thanks for the ice cream tip – that’s an excellent idea!

    I’ll have to give tabouli a try…

    Maddie is too cute, and I love the puggle pictures! I have one, and he’s the sweetest thing ever… but I may be a little biased. πŸ™‚

    I love Costco trips too! I’m so jealous, because my Costco doesn’t stock bulk Chobani!. Or those Clif bars I saw in there…totally not fair! I love that ice cream trick though!

    I love Costco BUT try to avoid it at all costs on SUNDAYS!! It is horrible.. Mine is open till 9:30 during the week so I like to go after work and avoid the crowds!! This way I get to take my time and really see what they have!! ALSO I am super jealous your Costco has Chobani.. mine doesn’t and it would defiantly help me save some money if mine did!!

    You are the best!!! Maddie and a puggle in the same picture?!?! Does it get any better?!?! (maybe if it were Lando AND Maddie int he same pic) πŸ™‚ Thanks my dear!

    Cubans are my favorite! I do exactly what you do though – try to hold of and order them once in a while (usually my birthday!) Happy Sunday! πŸ™‚

    MMM those smushed plantains look soooo darn good! I bet i could eat about 20 of those little things lol. Enjoy your Costco loot! The Blueberry Pomegranate granola sounds very tasty wowwy. PS booo to his fsu shirt hehe, sorry i couldn’t help it πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your night!

    I.Heart.Tostones. We eat them a lot in our family. I usually dip them in ketchup but my mom makes an amazing dipping sauce of olive oil and smashed garlic. If you let the garlic sit in the oil for a few hours before you serve it–holy crap it’s so good.
    Enjoy your week!

    One trick is if you must go on a Sunday, go right when they open… the first hour is pretty slow. Also, we call it the Hundred Dollar Store. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing the ice-cream trick! It seems like a great idea but I doubt I would have ever thought of it.

    Great ice cream tip!!!

    I wish we had Costco was closer to us! Looks like you got some great stuff today!

    It took me a little while to figure out that in the picture of your mom it was your dad’s arm in the picture and NOT your moms leg being kicked up in the air. Take a second look….you may laugh!

    God I miss Costco!! We don’t have them in Germany!!!

    Oh and by the way, I’m so jealous that you got to eat a Cuban!! It looked crispy and wonderful!! I always get one right off the plane when I am in Tampa!! If you are ever in the St. Pete area, you should try Stein’s. They make great cubans!

    What a fun filled and yummy day!!

    That is the way to buy Clif bars!

    I <3 Costco! I also like the blueberry pomegranate trail mix, so tasty!

    How did you like the salmon burgers? I pass them all the time and always wonder about them but never buy them. I'm not a huge fan of frozen fish unless I buy it fresh and freeze it myself. Frozen fish always seems to have a fishy taste to it, at least he ones I've bought in the past.

    What a successful trip to Costco! Love the family shopping trips.

    I love that ice cream trick. I often fill my bowl with fruit and a touch of ice cream too!

    sometimes you just have to have the Cuban. yum, haven’t had one of those in ages! looks like a very successful shopping trip!

    I seriously cannot wait until Costco opens its doors in my city. They’re currently in the process of building one!

    I love using tabbouli as a “salad dressing” of sorts too. So good!

    I wish we had a Costco!! We just have SAMS and they definately don’t carry Chobani or Tabouli! I went the other day, however, and stocked up on Spinich (for my green smoothies), a delicious frozen fruit combo, and a big tub of roasted red pepper hummus…sigh…

    Those Costco salmon burgers are the bomb! I get them every time I go and love having them for lunch or dinner, especially with a salad. They’re so easy to cook too, I put them on my George Foreman grill and they’re done in a couple of minutes.

    Looks like a fun trip, love the ice cream trick!

    GIANT BOX OF CLIF BARS!!!! I love those things, even if I don’t really buy them very often.

    I went to Costco today just so I could get salmon burgers, feta and taboulli. I cannot wait for lunch. YUMMM! My Costco did not have Chobani though – boo πŸ™

    I drive by Habana Grill ALL the time while shopping and have never been. I just looked at their menu online and I think I’ll have to take my dad soon since he loves cuban food. YUM! I love trips to Costco, but I remember how much I hated grocery shopping in general as a kid and now it’s my favorite thing ever. That’s kind of sad, but oh well.
