Ann Romney, wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, appeared on the "Rachel Ray Show" Oct. 25 and revealed that not only does she shop at Costco, but also shared her list with the viewers.
The mother of five sons, who also has 18 grandchildren, admitted that feeding her huge family can get expensive. But she shared her money saving secrets and how she can feed 30 people for under $150.
The audience as shown a pre-taped video of Romney shopping at Costco. "I always start at Costco," Romney said on the "Rachel Ray Show".
And what did she buy? Large bags of spinach, containers of frozen cream puffs and pre-cooked rotisserie chicken.
"The great thing about frozen desserts, they're always ready to go," she said.
Romney, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998 and survived breast cancer in 2008, described how her husband would buy rotisserie chicken during her illness. "When I was first diagnosed with MS and my husband was taking care of me, he discovered rotisserie chicken," Romney said. She added that he said, "I don't care if we eat cereal and toast the rest of my life, as long as we're together."
She went on to talk about her multiple sclerosis and breast cancer. "MS has been my greatest teacher, it's been the toughest teacher and breast cancer as well. But you have to know that the sun always will come up, that there will be a better day."
The 63-year-old also added spoke fondly of her husband on the show. "He is a huge romantic. He's very thoughtful. I am number one in his life always. I know the kids know that they are important in his life, too, but I am the center of his universe. He's amazing that way. He's very romantic."
