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?

Easiest option: Make chicken salad and put it on rolls for lunch. Or mix with barbecue sauce and make sandwiches out of that.

Other options with varying degrees of difficulty:
  • Pasta and some kind of cream sauce (lemon cream sauce,cream sauce with fresh basil, Parmesan cream sauce, the choice is yours) . Mix in leftover chicken. If you don't have cooking skills, you can buy a bag of frozen pasta + sauce combo (or frozen risotto) and just toss the chicken in with that after it's mostly done cooking.
  • Chicken pot pie
  • Chicken and dumplings
  • quesadillas (I make this recipe for quesadillas with a mole sauce a lot https://tinyurl.com/yb9rgjn6 )
  • Chicken noodle soup (or other soups, like chicken tortilla soup)
  • Burritos or enchiladas
  • white chicken chili
  • pretend it's 1950, and put it in a casserole with rice, peas, carrots and cream-of-whatever soup

I've been a Costco non-believer for a long time, but I got the membership deal from Groupon, and the chicken alone is mostly responsible for making me reconsider my opinion.

I get a 1/4 pound all beef hotdog with drink and refill for $1.50 about half the time I go to Costco. My wife didn't understand why until I gave her a bite of my dog (but just the tip because she's a celiac and can't eat the bun) and now she knows.

I'm slightly disappointed that my local Costco has stopped carrying the 2 lb. 2-packs of Kirkland plain nonfat greek yogurt. They now carry single 3 lb. tubs of organic plain nonfat greek yogurt, which makes my life slightly difficult as I now need to portion it out for my breakfast in the morning rather than eat straight from the tub. Also, the price is the same as the 2-packs so it's less of a value.

However, it is surprisingly more delicious than the previous non-organic variety.

PBUC.

Was a good lunch today. Visited the local and bought a case of bottled water for disc golfing. Grabbed 2 dogs with kraut on the way out. Went across the street to Best Buy and picked up my pre-order of Destiny 2.

Got back to work and realize that I forgot to get gas. Guess I am going back there after work to fill up.

If you buy a lot of plain greek yogurt you should try making your own. It's really easy to do if you have a crock pot. A gallon of milk yields two quarts of the thickest yogurt, plus pure whey runoff that you can use however you want. I haven't tried it with nonfat; not sure how that would work though.

I want to print this out as a religious tract and give it to the heathens who purchase their dogs elsewhere.

Sometimes organic stuff does taste better but it's usually because of some other factor (like organic beef and dairy coming from grass fed cows, it's because they're grass fed not because the grass was fertilized with their poo poo instead of factory fertilizer).

I do wish Costco carried certain brands, though. I have to buy my Mitchum deodorant, Ivory soap, and Breath Savers mints elsewhere. And I heard a rumor Sam's Club carries Rao's pasta sauce (magnificent quality sauce, better than many Italian restaurants, but very expensive) in big bottles at a very good discount. It would be nice to be able to get Rao's at Costco too, since they often carry "upscale" brands, but what are you gonna do?

The one by me never has, not since I've been a member (2009-ish). I stock up on the two-packs at Target and get Ivory soap there too, which is strangely becoming harder to find everywhere.

Costco hasn't brought back the pineapple-habanero sauce I like so much, and I've checked multiple stores.

I'm thinking about those dogs, but also how many bodies I'll have to pile to the sky to get my sauce back.

The majority deems it “unlikely that Faagai and John Penitani met at the Kapolei Costco to shop for food” because there was another Costco much closer to downtown Honolulu. But as savvy shoppers know, not all Costcos are the same. For example, the Kapolei location is twenty years newer than its downtown Honolulu counterpart, and features a “fresh deli.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mattel,_Inc._v._MCA_Records,_Inc.

The lawsuit filed by Mattel was dismissed by the lower courts, and this dismissal was upheld. Mattel requested review by the Supreme Court of the United States, but its petition for certiorari was denied.[4] In 2002, Judge Alex Kozinski ruled the song was protected as a parody under the trademark doctrine of nominative use and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. He also threw out the defamation lawsuit that Aqua's record company filed against Mattel. Kozinski concluded his ruling by saying, "The parties are advised to chill."[5][6] The case was dismissed.

If I ever see this guy at the food court his dog and 20oz drink with refill is on me!

edit: He's still on the bench at the Ninth
