I don’t really care much about lunch. I know I should have proper lunches but I really cannot stomach a full lunch everyday. Even with all the running that I am doing these days, my weight would still hover around the 4 kg overweight region. I know what the real problem is … I pig out during the weekends.
For today’s lunch, the appetizer was sesame snaps, the entree was the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and dessert was the Dole fruit bowl.
I had sesame snaps yesterday too. That is the big problem about shopping in Costco. Almost everything we buy comes in bulk packaging and that means that we end up eating the same stuff for a while.
We came across the Raybern New York Deli Style Hot Sandwich while shopping in (where else?) Costco. It came in very bright and delightful packaging that one cannot miss. We bought the Philly Cheesesteak but they also have others such as:
- Pastrami and cheese
- Italian Chicken Club
- Chipotle Southwest Steak
- Chicken Bacon Ranch
Preparing this is simple … just pop it into the microwave and it’s all ready.
There are six in a box and each sandwich carries 420 calories. It was much much better than I expected form frozen deli sandwiches. As a matter of fact, it really tastes like the real stuff although texture-wise, I could really tell that this is not freshly made. As a frozen sandwich, I’ll rate this 4.5 of 5. I am not sure if they do have this in Costco Canada though, as we got it from Bellingham, WA.
I enjoy the Dole Fruit Bowl. They come on several types. The one I had was mandarin oranges. I am amazed how they managed to peel the membrane off so cleanly. I am pretty sure the membranes are removed mechanically because if they were done by hand, it would not be that perfect and would have costs a lot more.
