I bought a huge box of Audubon bird seed to sate our songbird flock outside, in the ash rain. And a huge, equivalently large bag of Popcornopolis Kettle Corn for $5 which I have placed out for people who, like nuthatches and chickadees, will flit back and forth for hours for some of it. It's good!

Yeah, ours will often run out, especially if you go later in the day--consistently so when they had the $1 off going on.

Anyways went today, wasn't too bad. Picked up some more nicer pants, flannel shirts and these weatherproof-brand shirts, along with bunch of carbonated water, cheeses, the black-box ramen 8-pack, normady, romaine and spinach, ziplock and few other odds and ends.

Worst thing was they were out of the Kirkland Paper Towels and I had to buy these garbage brawny ones. They suck :mad:

I don't think all Costcos break their ribeyes down that way. I've gotten them a few times and they're great but I think I personally prefer a complete ribeye steak with the eye intact... which my Costco stopped stocking in favor of splitting the cap and the eye :(

Gotta buy one of those huge fuckoff bone-in ribeye steaks or the full ribeye roast now for a complete ribeye steak.

But it's rib eye cap. The God of Meat. The One True Cut. that's why Costco cuts it that way, because Costco knows whats up as always.

How well does that work with reheating? I've always wanted to get those rotisserie chickens but I never know what I'd do with all of it. If you reheat it in the microwave does it get really dry?

What do you do with the leftovers of that thing?

no the chicken is really drat moist so reheating it is usually fine. I usually just eat it with hot sauce and some veggies or maybe make a chicken wrap, or a quesadilla! or whatever its chicken!

Costco has seen fit to brine the birds strong, true. But this is for a greater good—the brine renders the chickens juicy and moist even through reheating and repurposing.

Yesterday I made the Pilgrimage to a new Costco which has opened up 20 minutes from me, The layout is flipped compared to the other 2 I've been too and it just felt wrong.

Going to take some time to get used to everything being on the wrong side of the store.

My favorite part of any whole roast chicken, especially the Costco chickens, are the two "oysters," rich, dark little ovals of meat that are tucked inside some of the bones under the thigh. I assume that's what those things are. They are a special treat for me every time. Once I was at a gastropub that had sauteed chicken oysters as an appetizer, and my heart filled with joy.

By the way, on that note, chicken hearts are surprisingly delicious and healthy too, but Costco doesn't sell them.

Dont do what i did and leave it at the bottom of your fridge for over a week, then leave the door open 20 minutes as you restock/clean, then reheat it a day later as part of leftovers.

For my sins against the bord, I was struck with food poisoning and puked for about 8 hours straight in regular 35 minute intervals.

I prayed to costco for deliverance but only the porcelain devil heard my calls that night.


Also, if you're handy, you could use the bone carcass as a base for stock.

Do all costcos have everything on turbo sale right now or is this just a byproduct of their Harvey relief efforts? Literally everything in the store is marked down 10-30%. Full food court pizza was $7.

You don't even need to be handy if you have an InstantPot. Throw the carcass(es) in with some water and a few veggies if you want and cook it under pressure for an hour. Strain it and you will have some of the best stock you ever had. Strain further with cheese cloth if you want broth (purer) consistency. You can freeze it too. Use large ice cube trays to make cubes then once those are frozen dump the cubes into a gallon ziplock and back into the freezer. When you need stock you can grab however many cubes you need out and thaw in a pan or the microwave.

If you don't have an InstantPot get one. They are usually around $100 and you will wonder how you never had one before.

I made the mistake of going yesterday to the new one in Orlando which has TERRIBLE traffic design (one traffic light to get out, one right turn lane and one left+straight no dedicated left turn - green for maybe 20 seconds) and pulling into the lot about gave me a panic attack with how many goddamn cars there were all gridlocked up.

It ended up taking 45 minutes to just drive through the parking lot and get back out. I just wanted a dog & to witness the madness for a little while!

Has anyone ever tried to ask them to cut one and NOT blade tenderize it. I bet they would do it if they have some uncut to do it with. Or maybe ask if you can reserve one that isn't tenderized next time they cut. Remember that you are a member so they will most likely be willing to do this for you.
