In another post our man Berel stated that Costco of Lawrence was carrying Empire Frozen Turkeys for $1.79/lb so I decided to go today and pick some up. Turns out I did not see any turkeys but what I saw was a centrally located set of tables where they were giving out samples of kosher items. Monday is usually slow but it was packed there. They were giving out samples of knishes, kugels, soufflés, cheese blintzes, cole slaw, cucumber salads, cakes, and an assortment of hard cheeses. I practically had dinner there. As per Costco standards, items were being sold in nice sized packages - perfect timing for Yom Tov. The kugels, soufflés, knishes and cheese blintzes were quite tasty - I think I will have dinner at Costco tomorrow as well :)
Many thanks Berel! Thanks to this find my Yom Tov planning will be much easier since I will not be making any sides just buying some of the items that I saw at Costco. Coupled with their excellent selection of vegetables and fruits I will make only my gefilta fish, turkey and brisket.
