Fun Family Dinner :: Costco Style

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Costco and the Costco Mom Hour, but all opinions expressed are my own.

family-fun-dinner-costco-styleFamily dinner can be hard.  It can be repetitive.  It can be a task that no one wants to take on, especially when you’re busy and tired.  Thankfully, Costco has made it pretty easy to create a fun family meal everyone will enjoy.

And bonus – there’s wine. 

I like to think of myself as a pretty good cook.  I enjoy cooking and presenting my food in an appealing way.  However, after having children the idea of even folding a napkin seems daunting.

The thing is, I MISS having fancy food.  I miss the dinner parties I used to have.  And I’m tired of using the excuse that I have kids and am no longer able to have what I want.

And just like that Costco saves the day!

The Kirkland brand at Costco makes it affordable to buy the fancy foods I miss, and also easy to incorporate the fun foods my kids love.  The best part is it all tastes great!

Last week I made a fancy dinner for my family that took a mere 15 minutes in prep.

I simply stopped at my local Costco in Fullerton and picked fun food that I know I love and I know my kids will eat.



Here was my spread.


Everything you see is the Costco Kirkland Signature brand!  That’s right!

  • Fresh made Rosemary bread
  • Roasted Turkey Slices
  • Brie cheese
  • Chicken Salad
  • Organic fruit produce
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Wine
  • Salmon & Sangria {Not Pictured}


My kids felt like they were eating their favorite snacks.  I felt like I was eating a special treat.  My husband got some wine. Everyone was happy.  And just in case Costco and the Kirkland Signature brand couldn’t get ANY better – here are some INSIDER TIPS


Kirkland yoga capris= Lululemon

Kirkland detergent = made by tide

Kirkland batteries = Duracell

Kirkland Vodka = Grey Goose

Kirkland kids pj’s = Carter’s

Kirkland jackets = Northface

I know what you must be thinking.  I don’t have a Costco membership.  Costco is SO busy sometimes and I don’t want to fight a crowd.  I don’t have time to shop!

That’s why you need Costco Mom Hour!  Costco has partnered with City Moms Blog Network to give you the BEST membership deal AND an entire hour of shopping without the crowds!

Not only that but they are offering swag, giveaways & breakfast.
