My husband Bill and I went to Costco this morning and picked up the usual supplies for the week with one exception. Bill saw a Cedar Plank Salmon and thought the price was $14.99 so he decided we should give it a try…


I was ahead of him in the aisle so I didn’t see the price but agreed I thought it would be something different we could have for dinner… I reminded him that Shantel most likely won’t want to try it, but Bill said that didn’t matter because she doesn’t like a lot of things we like… (she is a very picky eater and I bet when she moves into her own apartment, in two weeks, she will survive on hamburgers, fries, and chinese food unless I make something she likes and bring it over to her).

Anyway, I usually sit at the tables at the front of Costco watching people while Bill goes through the check-out line. As he was walking up to me he had a strange look on his face so I asked him what was wrong? As he was looking at the receipt, he said “OMG, I didn’t know that salmon  cost that much!” I said “how much did it cost?” He showed me the receipt and I almost passed out when I saw it cost a whopping $30.02!!! I said “wow Bill, that is a lot of money for a piece of salmon…” That is when he said I thought the sign said the salmon was $14.99. Obviously he misread the sign or looked at the wrong sign altogether! I said “well why don’t you take it back while we are still here and tell them you misread the sign?” He said “no, it will be OK, we will try it.” Then he laughed and said “But I hope it isn’t too good.” I said “yeah, because we don’t want to fall in love with something we can’t afford to keep buying, especially now that we will be trying to help Shantel too…” Ha!

When we got home I told Bill I was going to do a blog post about this little OOPS! As I was preparing to write this blog post I was still thinking about how much money that salmon really cost. Then I remembered my birthday is this coming Monday, so I said to Bill “hey, we can just count that salmon as a nice birthday dinner.” He picked up the salmon, laughed, and said “I don’t think it would be too good by December!”


Funny boy… his birthday is in December!

But all is well that ends well… and our little salmon oops gave us a real good laugh… 🙂 🙂

Stay Tuned!

      Thanks frissy.. One thing I can always count on for my birthday is, Bill/Bro will either take me out to dinner or cook my dinner for me… I refuse to cook my own birthday dinner… He plans to just put the salmon plank right on the B-B-Q grill. I will definitely let you all know if it was ($30.02) worth of good, because one thing I always tell my family/fiends when I cook is, “if you don’t like it tell me or you WILL get it again…” Ha! XoXo
