Hot dogs, cupcakes and a day for Mothers

Cheap eats are hard to find sometimes, but at Costco you won't have that problem. Not sure if Sam's Club has something like this. Can't say for sure as I've never been to a Sam's Club. Costco is one of those Warehouse stores that sells an endless amounts of products in bulk at decent prices. I take a trip there once a month or every couple months. I also get my contact lenses from their optical department. Been happy with the service for years. of the great things about Costco is their outdoor concession stand.

The lines can sometimes be pretty long, but they're usually worth the wait. A large slice of pizza for a dollar something. Hot dog or a polish dog for a buck-fifty and that includes a drink with free refills. Their famous chicken bake it really awesome. Chicken, bacon and cheese...yum!!!. It's a small selection, but it's definitely good eats. Pizzas...whole or by the slice are totally big, but so awesome.

Today I stuck with a traditional simple delicious hot dog. Toppings are self-serve, so I put some relish, mustard and ketchup. I would have added onions, but I didn't feel like, it this time around. Sometimes a good ol' fashioned hot dog is all you need to fill you right.

As promised here's the inside cross-section of the red velvet cupcake that I had gotten the other day from Crumbs Bake Shop.

 The photo looks a little dark, but I assure you it's a red velvet cupcake with a cream cheese frosting.  Yummy!! all the mother's out there. Here's a lovely flower for you.  :)

Happy Mother's Day!!! (I ♥ my mom!!!)

Costco has just about everything! We buy whole pizzas from that snack bar for our work parties. They're a big hit and the more we save the more parties we can have! Happy Mother's Day!

It can be the simplest things that make us happy! Hope you enjoyed Mother's Day in the company of your lovely mother.

Ahh - I love that you caught part of your mom's face in the Costco shot. You guys spend a lot of time together, which I think is wonderful. I'm good friends with my mum and love doing stuff with her - even if it's a trip to Costco. Hope you both have a great day!

I cannot vouch for the hot dog. But that top photo is real art. So much is said about our culture. The line of people all dressed in the same color as the bag of Ruffles they bought. Which makes you wonder why do they need a hot dog? Then there is that partial face in front. Is that person escaping or joining? Pretty great photo! In reality I know the photo is of your mom. But the anonymity of the composition gives it a universal vibe that I cannot help but adding my own story to. No offense to your mom on her day. GREG said...
