20lb Jar of Artichokes? Don't Mind if I Do...

Today after work Sis and I traveled across state lines to the food warehouse known as "Sam's Club."  Summer's new credentials as a peer lactation consultant afforded her two memberships which she shared with me. 

We strolled the aisles looking wildly out of place with all the fast-moving, loaded-to-the-top-of-their-buggies people.  

We looked up the aisles and beyond and had the strange sense of being a Lilliputian in a land of Giant - Condiments.   Need a large can of Nacho Cheese Sauce? No problem.  Need a ketchup bottle that has to be lifted with two sets of hands?  Got two different sizes.   Large tray of croissants?  Beef?  Cheese wheel?  The possibilities of over-sized food was endless and we were more than a little overwhelmed.  

When I saw Summer staring, transfixed, at the sight of a huge can of Poppycock - I knew it was time to leave.

We took the Poppycock with us.

Well, I once went to Sam's Club with a buddy of mine, and we saw this little red-faced man standing in the checkout with about a dozen five-gallon jugs of mayonnaise, and one loaf of bread.
