Costco Trip and Regular stuff

What I bought at Costco

Firm Tofu

This is a hidden treasure of Costco. I’m not sure that all the location has the same stuff. Probably not. I’m glad that Costco near my place has this Firm Tofu. I used to buy only silky tofu just because my mom did when I lived in Japan. So I brought the habit into my cuisine until I found this tasty,yet, reasonably priced tofu at Costco. There are three packs in a box and each pack has four Tofu Curds, and the price is only $3.85…. Great Deal 🙂

Since this is firm tofu, it is easy to handle when I cook. It used to be kind of difficult to grill or fry it. So I basically put silky tofu only in soup or salad. But now, I can do Tofu Stake, Fried Tofu, of course salad and soup!! It is perfect to me when I don’t want to eat meat,but my husband wants.I don’t feel good eating only salad&rice right next to him eating meaty meal… I want something filling. Then Tofu, here it comes.

Also my regular in the shopping list is Spinach. Last time was the cheapest price I’ve ever seen. A big bag was only $3.89!! I should’ve bought 2 bags but I didn’t… And this time, it was $4.99. Still reasonable though.

And some fish. It could be Tilapia, Salmon or Flounder. Depends on my feeling and price. I bought flounder for today. I plan to go to Chinatown this weekend, and maybe I will get salmon there if it’s fresh and cheaper.(Actually, Fish and Vegetables are fresher and cheaper in Chinatown than local supermarkets).

O.K. now, let’s move to the regular stuff…
