OK, I admit it. I love going to Costco. Yeah, you heard me right.
I know it’s absolute craziness if you go on the weekends but if you go during the week like I do, it’s not that bad. And yes, I know most of you work so you can’t go during the week . . so if you want to hit the big warehouse for some much needed toilet paper or buy that extra large, humongous bag of tortilla chips, you gotta go on the weekends.
And what do you have to look forward to? Other than having to park 3 miles away because everyone and their brother has also decided to brave Costco the same day as you, the hundreds of people who are there with you inside shopping and the longggg lines you have to wait in once you’re finished?
The food samples.
This and the extra large, humongous bag of tortilla chips. These things make Costco okay for me. Yes, I know sometimes you’re waiting in a line to get a sample and there are sometimes unsupervised children running up to the table and grabbing food. But sometimes. . sometimes you get to try something pretty great and you go home happy.
I love this bread. Squirrelly Bread from Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery. I’m not gonna say how many food samples I ate. This bread is seriously delicious. And because they were at Costco, I walked away with 2 loaves.
So, I’ve been eating this bread non-stop. It’s great, obviously, as a sandwich. But I needed something fabulous. . and I had some mascarpone in my fridge. One should never be left alone with mascarpone, honey, strawberries and Nutella. You might eat the entire loaf.
This recipe is so simple and freaking delicious. You simply must give this one a try. Go ahead and indulge. I hope you enjoy!
- 6 slices of your favorite bread; toasted
- ½ cup mascarpone
- 1 heaping tablespoon of honey
- fresh strawberries; sliced
- Nutella; slightly melted in microwave (helps to drizzle on easier)
- sliced almonds or hazelnuts (or both!)
- Mix the mascarpone and honey in a small bowl. Spread on your slice of toasted bread, then arrange the strawberries on top, drizzle on the Nutella and sprinkle on the nuts.
And if you can’t get your hands on some fresh, sweet strawberries. . don’t fret.
