just another reason to love my co-op

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚


Garbanzo Stew over steamed veggies.


Lots of broccolini because I love it.


Tasters turkey-meat-ball-sauce over whole-wheat noodles.


PS. This was not an approved portion… ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. broccolini is great…haven’t had it in forever!

  2. I haven’t ever had broccolini, but given my love of veggies I think I approve ๐Ÿ˜‰

    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?

  3. ahhhh what coop do you go to? seward? wedge? i often see things at the coop and my whole dinner plans go out the window as well. i was in mpls uber-briefly this weekend (like for 1 day), but next time i come we need to get together.

    hope you had a good weekend dear emily!

    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.
