Costco Samples FTW

I think we crammed as much into today as humanly possible! Hit the gym at 9, then straight from there to swim lessons at 10:30. Sadly the kids aren’t in the same class this year, so we’re there for a whole hour while they each take their 30 minute lesson. After that it was home for lunch, then we headed to the pool for the first time this season. I feel like every year the pool gets more fun- first because their swimming skills improve (though I still feel like I spend 75% of our visit drowning at the bottom of the slides while I wait for the kids to come down), and because they run into more friends from school. They both had a blast and Isla was *thisclose* to passing out on the way home.

We took the kids to Costco on Sunday and they must have been starving, because both kids tried almost all of the samples. One guy was serving up these chile-lime marinated chicken breasts:

Jack was a fan, and I’m excited anytime they are willing to eat chicken that isn’t breaded. SO into the cart it went! We got a double package for around $16, which seemed high except when I realized that each package contained 6 big pieces. Tonight I baked one of the packages (375 for about 25-30 minutes):

That amount served 3 of us (Isla refused, shocker) with 2 big pieces leftover. Not bad! The flavor is great too- these would be really good cooked with peppers and onions for fajitas.

On the side we had roasted asparagus and this frozen mashed cauliflower from Trader Joe’s.

Weird little frozen nuggets…

It was our first time trying the cauliflower. Eh. It was ok but I wasn’t crazy about the texture- kind of watery and lumpy. More like grits than mashed potatoes. I’ve made mashed cauliflower several times in the food processor and it’s way better than this. I guess good in a pinch though.

So there’s our day! The kids both slept until almost 8 today, which was a huge win. Let’s hope they keep it up :)
