6th Costco Shopping in 2020 – $10.13 today / $335.05 this year

Today is Super Bowl Sunday, 02/02/2020. I went to Costco early morning for car wash and a slice of combination pizza to go. I’ll be watching the Super Bowl alone. I am preparing for the Super Bowl viewing party for one person. I will have this slice of pizza and some snacks when I watch the game. I know it’s little sad having a one person viewing party, but it’s OK… I’m OK…

What’s challenging was food temptation at Costco. I was craving for a hot dog. I wanted to enjoy Sunday morning hot dog while sitting outside in glorious California weather. Also, I wanted to buy two slices of pizza instead of just one. I should reward myself with two slices of pizza, the hungry John said to my ear. But, I was determined to fight the temptation. So, I put on my retainers before leaving home, that way eating would be a hassle.

I didn’t eat a hot dog. Also, I only bought one slice of pizza. I came home and made a Vitamix juice for breakfast. One of my new year’s resolution is to fit in my 30 Inch waist pants comfortably. Young folks look good no matter what shape they are in. Big women look amazing sexy no matter how old they are. But, if you see an awesome looking gentleman, chances are, he is slim – not necessarily muscular, but slim. So, I choose to stay slim.

OK, I am ready for the football. I don’t even know who’s playing. Oh, red and white. I like the red team. Yes~! the red team made the first rundown!

I get craving for pizza once in a while. I would like to enjoy pizza late Saturday night, or when I’m home alone feeling cozy. But, I live alone, so I need a little planning to enjoy pizza.

Pizza is family oriented food. Going to a pizza restaurant alone is not only depressing, but it’s too expensive. I don’t want to have a pizza delivered to my house and ended up with massive amount of leftover. That’s also too expensive. In both cases, just a tip alone will buy me 2-3 slices of Costco pizza.

So, this is what I do. I buy Costco’s Take and Bake pizza, slice them up, and freeze them. They last many months in the freezer. I enjoy pizza whenever I have a craving for it, and they will cost me $1.50 each slice. I can top it off with whatever I want. Since I enjoy my kitchen, baking pizza when I’m home alone is absolute joy. It’s the most economical way for a single person to enjoy good pizza. There are cheaper pizza out there (Dollar store). But…

It’s the Costco way. You enjoy good stuff cheap. You just have to buy in bulk.

Preparing Costco pizza for long term, single serving, storage

  • Take pepperoni off the pizza
  • Cut pizza into 6 slices
  • Put pepperonis back on (6 slices each)
  • Wrap each slice with Kirkland Signature Stretch-Tite Plastic Food Wrap.
  • Put them in ziploc freezer bags.

** Costco’s take and bake pepperoni pizza has 36 slices of pepperoni

I broke my pizza cutter and I may never buy another pizza cutter again. I cut pizza maybe once a year. And there are plenty of people, including professionals, using kitchen sheers to cut pizza.

Can I get a yum~!!??
