Nibbles: Lunch at Costco

It is never a good idea to shop when you are hungry, especially because I am on this intermittent fasting diet. I don’t eat before 11 a.m. or after 7 p.m. So, there I was at Costco at noon, and I was famished. A friend had mentioned the sausage and pepper sandwich at Costco’s food court, so I ordered one. I guess everyone else knows about it, too, so I waited about 10 minutes for the $2.69 sandwich. The wait was worth it. Nestled in a soft grinder bun, the sweet sausage, almost 8 inches long, was thick and luscious, bathed in freshly sautéed peppers and onions. I ate the whole thing, although two moderately hungry people could share it. And remember to get a fork: by the time you are almost done, the sauce had soaked into the bottom of the bun, making it even more delicious! And it’s OK if you’re not a Costco member, you can get a sausage and pepper sandwich even if you’re not. But be sure to bring Visa or cash, they don’t take Mastercard.
