Check out today's Costco finds. The most exciting find today was what I went looking for and had hoped to find...Copper River Wild Sockeye Salmon! YAY!!! Ever since "Chris" told me she had gotten some a few days ago and was having that for dinner...I've been on a mission to find it this weekend. I picked up 3 large fillets because I was afraid it wouldn't be there when I went back for it next weekend, too. They also had some beautiful Australian lamb chops. They have some of the most beautiful lamb chops I've ever seen at Costco. I also picked up some heavy cream, a package of my favorite artisan romaine lettuce as well as big containers of fresh blueberries and raspberries.
I've been making a lot of fresh lemonade recently, but I usually make it by the glass -- squeeze fresh lemon juice into my glass, add some liquid stevia and then fill my glass with chilled filtered water. I found a 2-pack of infusion pitchers and picked those up to make lemonade, limeade, iced tea and fresh fruit infused water to enjoy this summer. I'm looking forward to making it by the pitcher so it's always available. Last, but not least...I picked up a large gift set of Crabtree & Evelyn's "hand therapy" cream. There are 12 different varieties/scents and all of them sound wonderful. It comes in a beautiful gift tin covered with flowers and fruits. I just couldn't pass it up. Each of these tubes of hand cream retail for $8.00 each independently (or you can find the same set at Amazon for $53.50). Costco had this collection for $29.99 which is a fantastic price! I can not lie -- next to the Copper River Salmon find...this was my next favorite find of the day! Here's a link to the hand cream if you are interested in checking them out (it's the 25 g. tubes in the collection) ---> Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Cream Collection. So, if you like things like this (like I do)..check out your Costco to see if they carry the collection. Enjoy!
Wow! Can't wait to get to "my" Costco to check these out! Thanks, GG!
I have a Costco here I shop at too... LOVE it!! However... there is NO way I can afford to pay those prices on the Salmon... any alternatives?
I know the fresh wild salmon is pricey -- even at Costco prices I think you can sometimes find it less expensive frozen. Also, Costco has canned wild salmon (boneless) that is good for making salmon patties/cakes. Other than watch for it to go on sale, you might be able to find a local market that sells it at better prices (there are some Asian markets in the Atlanta area that sell fresh fish more reasonably. Hope that helps. :-)
Hi Rhodeanie! Hope you find it at your Costco. I know it doesn't last long. :-)
You really hit the jackpot this time, GGC! The Copper River Red is first on my hit list! Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to get there. The season is so short and when they're gone, they're *gone* for a whole year!
Hopefully your Costco will have the Copper River -- I wish I could remember how many weeks they had it last year -- I think at least a few? I do remember that towards the end of their season my hubby was getting tired of it because I made it so frequently! LOL He likes it...but not as much as I do! ;-)
Great deals! I have to check our locel Costco for that hand cream.
Thanks, Jeanette -- hope you can find it! :-)
I do a lot of Costco shopping too - so I always enjoy you posting your finds :)
Thanks! I need to post my Costco finds more often. I will try to,. :-)
