All I was looking for was Taco Shells & Beer + Update on Dirty Dozen List

Have you ever gone to Costco and come home with more than what you went for originally?  Well, I had an excursion to Costco yesterday.

I have a love-hate relationship with Costco.  Why does one always find additional items that are a 'must have' at Costco?........like a bag of peanut m&m's.

I think I need to upgrade to a Suburban.

All I wanted were taco shells and beer!



Okay, maybe not just taco shells and beer but I did come home with more than I had on my list.  We're getting ready to go on vacation and I had to buy a week's supply of snacks, lunch and breakfast food.  We're only responsible for one night of dinner during the week and we're making tacos. 

Costco doesn't have taco shells....just tortillas, which I also needed.

But they do have beer.  We're set!

Now that I'm looking at the photo above, I am realizing that we must fit all of this (minus the paper towels and the case of stewed tomatoes) plus, 16 pounds of our natural ground beef, and all of our clothes, sleeping bags, toys, etc. 

Hmmm, maybe we should drive the truck instead......



Update:

Remember a while back when I wrote about the Dirty Dozen list by the Environmental Working Group?  Which is a list of fruits and vegetables you might want to stay away from.  Well it was brought to my attention by a Facebook friend, (thanks Geoff) there is a new report, just released Thursday by the Alliance For Food & Farming challenging this Dirty Dozen claim.  The Alliance for Food & Farming has launched a new website, Safe Fruits and Veggies, to give consumers a different perspective and stress the need to eat more fresh fruits and veggies.  I hope you check out this new report



Happy Friday!  Cheers!
