325/365 : American Goodness!!

Tracey (Andy's Sister), James (her husband), Andy and I went into Manchester tonight. We started out at Costco. In the US if you want a Costco card you go into your local store, pay something like $50 and get your membership card. Here in the UK you have to be in certain professions before you can get a membership. *Boo* Well I had remembered that Tracey was a member so I asked her about it and she was able to add me on to her membership for only £13.50 and I get my own card to come and go as I please. Woo Hoo! I have heard rumors of some of the American food you can get at Costco so I was well excited to check it out.

We made our way in, got my card and started our walk around. Here is what I picked up from Costco: Hershey's Syrup, Beef Jerky, Pace Salsa and Wishbone Italian Dressing! There was much more I could have got but passed this time, there was even Skippy Peanut Butter! Here is the inside of the store.. Andy laughed and said it is a little slice of America right here in the UK.

After we were done at Costco we ran across the road to the Trafford Centre and went into Selfridges. As most of you may remember back on Day 129 I got some A1 Sauce and Grape Jelly but this time I got: A1 (couldn't resist it), Pez, Hershey's Miniatures and (yes you are seeing it correctly) Kraft Macaroni and Cheese! I never knew I could be so excited to see this little blue box. I can't wait to make it for dinner tomorrow night!

Oh... and as you can see there is a Krispy Kreme in Selfridges so we also got a couple doughnuts. Now I am off to have some Hershey's Chocolate milk and to eat my two yummy doughnuts.

What a great night!!

I really need to get down to Manchester and go to Costco! I could really go for some salsa and hubby is addicted to beef jerky. Oh how I miss some of my American favorites! BTW I've tried the Krispy Kremes from Selfridges, I was so cynical at first and kept telling my husband they wouldn't taste the same - but they did! It was doughnut heaven :)
