    That's great, but like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, my life is also Costco-less.

    I've got a Whole Foods and a Costco, but both are waaaay across town. I've yet to go to either.

    Same here LIL....we live just north of the middle of nowhere and it's an hours drive to any of those stores.

    I have Whole Foods - the shrimp and scallops are both extremely overpriced and are not that great considering the fortune that they charge. I have TJ's - more reasonably priced, but the shrimp and scallops are frozen and not real good. I don't have any Costcos that are close by.

    Wish we had a Costco here. My sister lives near one, and loves it. We have Sam's Club, which is similar I guess.

    Not really. Costco has many more "grocery" type food items than Sam's does.

    I LOVE the shrimp at Costco, it comes cleaned but you do have to take the shell off.
    Our Costco also does fresh Hawaiian Poke (pronounced poh - keh) bar every other weekend. If you don't know what poke is, it is sort of like a cerviche. I used to make my own but the kukui nuts and ogo seaweed is difficult to get at times. There are many different types of poke but the following is the most popular.

    Hawaiian Poke Recipe - Ahi Shoyu Poke


    1 lb. 'ahi
    1 T. sea salt
    1/2 t. kukui nuts
    3-4 T. Aloha shoyu
    1 Hawaiian chili pepper, minced
    1 1/2 c. ogo seaweed
    1/4 c. chopped Maui onion
    1/2 t. fresh minced ginger
    1/4 c. chopped green onion
    1 1/2 T. sesame oil

    Slice tuna into little bite size pieces and mix with other ingredients. For best results, refrigerate for several hours to allow the ingredients to blend together.

    If you can't get the ogo or the kukui nuts, no worries...the poke will still taste great!!!

    Enjoy!

    Re: Just Recipes

    We have a caterer that does events where I work that does this fabulous hot corn dip and I've tried to get the recipe, but can't.

    I think I have figured it out though.

    3 cups frozen corn, thawed, well drained
    2 tbsp. butter
    3 green onions finely chopped
    1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
    1/2 cup mayo
    3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
    1/2 small can green chilies, drained and chopped

    For topping:
    1/4 tsp. chili powder
    pinch of cayenne pepper

    Directions
    PREHEAT oven to 350°F.
    Melt butter in a skillet and add green onions, saute until soft, add corn and toss to coat well and heat up.
    Mix together all ingredients except corn and onions until well blended. Add corn and onions and fold into mixture

    SPREAD into 9-inch pie plate; sprinkle with chili powder & cayenne pepper.

    BAKE 20 min. or until golden brown and bubbly. Serve hot with the crackers or corn chips or even raw veggies.

    That sounds good, mrd. How do you think it would be if I leave out the mayo?
