Goodbye March – Hello April! As I was totaling up my actual cost spent on groceries for the month of March, I realized I totally skipped over posting about my Costco grocery haul.
Now, I can’t really say it was mine, rather my husband Ty’s, and I don’t even know if it really qualifies has a haul, since only four items were bought. But regardless, when I found out Ty had to make a run to Costco for work this month, I knew I had to have him pick up a couple of the items I discovered last month during my very first visit to Costco. You can read about my first Costco experience here. We loved the guacamole we had bought and the price on Kerrygold cheese can’t be beat! While there, Ty also grabbed some avocado oil I’d spotted last time, and he threw in some red lentil pasta to try out.
You can clearly tell I forgot all about this grocery haul being that the cheese is already almost gone and the guacamole is half eaten! We sure do love our healthy fats.

If you want my honest opinion, neither Ty nor myself like the avocado oil much. We will use up what we have, but will probably stick to extra light tasting olive oil for our homemade mayo.
As for the red lentil pasta, Ty likes it, I’m not a huge fan. Once it’s got your typical spaghetti sauce piled on top, it’s like any old pasta. The flavor of it is fine, but the texture is sort of gummy. For the price of it, I’d rather stick to regular old lentils for only $.08/oz.
Although neither product is horrible, we probably won’t be buying them again. As much as I enjoy trying new products, there’s always a risk that comes with it.
But have no fear! This didn’t turn us off to Costco. That cheese and guac have still got me drooling. We will definitely be back to see what else we can discover!
