Not only is my co-op one of the best in the country (it’s true) it is pretty much my personal playground. No matter how many times I go I can easily spend countless hours wandering the aisles checking for the latest and greatest new foods, products, miracles, etc.

I prefer to go by myself because then I don’t have anyone rushing me ;) but the other night we went after a long Monday at work. Dinner was planned but the plans quickly changed when I saw garbanzo stew in the hot bar. I was sold and made up something about how it would just be too late to make something from scratch. The taster wanted nothing to do with garbanzo stew and settled on some turkey meatballs that he would doctor up at home with onion, peppers, pepperoni, garlic and sauce. Both of us were happy with our own choices and we ate within 15 minutes of arriving home. I knew I couldn’t make salmon that fast! :)

    I haven’t ever had broccolini, but given my love of veggies I think I approve ;)

    I also most def. approve of oversized pasta portions, because hey – that’s just how you’re supposed to do it! There is a reason why one cup looks sooo dinky.

    p.s. which co-op do you go to? Wedge?

    Broccolini is the best. I’m glad I’m not the only one enamored with the aisles in a co-op. I’ll take that over the mall any day.
