I am on my mother’s Costco membership. Since it’s just me and Jason, we don’t go that often but sometimes I get the Costco craving and it’s for three things that I can’t really find anywhere else. The Costco trifecta of deliciousness, if you will.
Hannah brand hummus and taboule. Whoever Hannah is, she makes some good Mediterranean food. Although I thought the correct spelling was tabbouleh. I’ll forgive her, because it’s good. The Pita Pal Pearl Couscous salad is something that they only have sometimes and I get irrationally excited when they do. I know I could probably make this at home, but it’s just not as good. So, for dinner last night, I made a little tasting plate with the trifecta. I also added some carrots, feta and olives.
It has come to my attention, via Jason, that I don’t eat a lot of salads at home. It’s mostly because I’m lazy and don’t want to chop up veggies, I think, because a salad is one of my go-tos on a restaurant menu. I decided that he was right and I needed to eat more salads at home. So, for dinner tonight, I basically turned my tasting plate into a salad with the addition of arugula, mushrooms, tomato and green pepper.
The only problem with the trifecta of deliciousness is it’s a little too delicious. It’s one thing to polish off a regular sized container of hummus in a couple of days, it’s quite another to polish off the Costco sized serving. Duly noted.
