Dinner is in 10.

I love Costco...
Right now, I love Costco even more. Really, what other grocery store can you go to, spend $400, and still not have anything for dinner...
Right now, we are in baseball, to say we are busy is an understatment. I like quick and easy meals for baseball season. McDonalds is our friend during baseball seaon. We literally have 20 minutes between getting Elijah home, and off to baseball practice. Not a lot of time for dinner...until costco!! they have this fantastic Teriyaki chicken there. It said on the package ready in 6 minutes. Really, how good can it be if its ready in 6 minutes, I figured proubably better then McDonalds, and cheaper. A family of 6, $30. We tryed it, and we liked, we liked it, because we tryed it (Ok, maybe we have been watching Yo Gaba gaba to much...) I made the chicken, (stir fry style) made some minute rice (ready in 5), steamed some "trees" (broccolli), and made my favorite again from Costco, Cherry Almond Bleu salad. Thats right, from the moment I decided I needed to get dinner made, to it being on the table, 10 minutes. That left us 10 minutes to eat....not bad!! Dishes...Well, those will still be there in the morning. So next time you go to Costco, pick up some Teriyaki chicken...Try it you'll like it, you'll like it because you tryed it...actually you will like me because I told you about it.


  1. One of my favorite quick meals is Peanut Butter Pasta. It takes about 15 minutes, but that's mostly boiling the water. Basically make spagettii. While the water's boiling, saute some chopped garlic in a pot. Mix together about 8 tbsps of peanut butter, 1/2 cup of soya sauce, 1/2 cup of water, and about 2 tbsp of sesame oil. Add that to the garlic. Thrown in a sprinkle of flaked chili powder. Then add some sort of greens to the sauce (frozen peas, or fresh spinach are my favorites). Cook that just to cook the veggies. When the pasta's done, drain it and mix it all together. It's a great kinda oriental peanuty flavour. Almost Shezaun.

  2. Guess what I am making tonight? Yup Teriyaki chicken. Read about this awhile back, forgot about it, got it at costco cuz they had the coupon for it and I have to say, I love it!!! Thnks Kathie, and yes, I do read our blog and see it is quite helpful!

  3. Got it at Costco last week, thanks to you! and love it!! Thanks for sharing!
