The Normandy veggies seem like they would be pretty bland. It's just broccoli/cauliflower/carrots, right? Do you jazz em up a bit or what

I toss em with a little vinegar, either balsamic or malt or whatever's on hand. I really like vinegar though.

The possibilities are endless with kirkland signature normandy veggies

A lil' bit of oregano 'n basil + balsimic vinegar = italian deliciousness

A lil' bit of cumin 'n chili powder + bbq sauce = southern deliciousness

A lil' bit of ginger 'n teriyaki sauce = asian deliciousness

A lil' bit of curry powder 'n garam masala = indian deliciousness

Your imagination is the limit!

As to you sample poo-pooers, my dudes... The amount of stuff I never would have looked twice were it not for those samples. Especially school snacks. They're worth tolerating for the net good they do, even for all the land pigs you need to circumnavigate to get to them.

There aren't many, but some Costco locations are much stricter on showing your membership card upon entry than others. In my personal experience, they are really only strict in locations where there are potentially a lot of homeless dudes.

Trader Joe's sauerkraut. Drained, rinsed, lightly seasoned with celery seed, thyme, paprika, black pepper, and some brown sugar. Mix with a beer.

Brown the bratwursts in a pan with bacon fat. Don't worry about cooking them through. Add sauerkraut beer mixture. Simmer until liquid is mostly reduced, about 15-20 minutes.

Alternate method - don't brown the brats, throw them in raw with the kraut. After simmering, remove and grill to get some color on them.

This guy eats.

Went to Micro Center yesterday, and when I was checking out I asked how much they were selling the 256GB USB sticks for. Dude told me $70 something. When I balked, he mentioned that Costco had them for $40 something. Employees of rival companies must still bend the knee to Costco.

So I suggested that Costco membership to my folks, and turns out they have a sams club membership. Instead of instantly telling them to gently caress off with that, I actually did some research. There are lots of tradeoffs, but the most important thing is definitely the food court. Does this look familiar to any of you?

Sams club is garbage and payss+treats workers like absolute poo poo and it shows in how awful their stores and quality are too. almost yearly there's articles about how costco is running circles around walmart-sams with lower prices still despite paying/comping their workers 200% more

Kirkland brand bacon is almost flavorless. The thick cut is good though.

I like the bacon, I don't have to dig through piles and piles of packs of bacon to find ones that aren't 99% fat. Every slice in the package is legit quality. Also its something like $3? a pound, which is like half the grocery store price.

Polish all day every day, but the Kirkland bacon is 100% fat. Maybe the thick cut is better, but I've stopped buying the regular because it was so bad.

What happens if I don't stop for the receipt checker at the door? I mean, I'm sure it says in my membership agreement that I have to let them check. But what would they physically do about it? They aren't cops, they can't hold me there, and I don't have to tell them who I am. I guess they could take my picture and post it on some wall of undesirables... now, I'm not gonna actually do this because what would be the point, but I'm curious how the employees are told to respond to this.

The drink is half the cost of the dog/soda at Costco and the dog is the same price. You're paying ~1.5 times as much there and that's grounds for murder.
