Costco and the Holiday Season by Margot Justes

I love Costco anytime of the year, but there is something magical about the giant during the holiday season.

It may have something to do with the fact I buy my desserts there, to be sure I still make my rum balls, fudge and poppy seed cake, but everything else comes from Costco, along with appetizers, chips, and anything else that makes the holiday table a delight to behold. Yes, plates and knives and forks too.

Tonight is our annual holiday party, I'm expecting 16 to 20 people for dinner. Abt at this very moment is installing a dishwasher, mine went out after only five years and would have cost too much to repair. Gotta love the planned obsolescence working full speed ahead.

At any rate, I saved my trip to Costco for today, pick up the stuff I need to complete my menu and along the way maybe buy a pair of jeans.

It is snowing and the white fluffy stuff sticking to the branches is beautiful, peaceful and calming; a perfect day so far. Assuming I can wash dishes tonight.

I would like to extend holiday wishes and 'Peace on earth' is such an overused slogan, but it sure would be nice.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Till next time,

You're probably recuperating from your party. Hope you had a good time.

The desserts are yummy, the only problem with shopping at Costco is you never just buy one thing.

We had a good time and i had a working dishwasher.
