Converted to the faith last week.

Wasn't going to buy anything (the cupboards are full) but ended up walking out with a pressure cooker, towels, salt beef brisket, and a 6 pack of malbec.

Need to find somewhere in my flat to hide a chest freezer, then return.

The downside is that they're cleaning up the food stand and the past few times I've gone I haven't been able to get my 1/4lb all beef hot dog (I'm sure I could get the 20oz drink with free refill if I wanted but without the dog I don't). Yes I know I can just buy a pack and do it myself but I don't want that many and it's not the same and I don't want to.

Really? I've been going half hour before closing for years and years and I've never once seen them clean up early. Your Costco needs to get itself together.

i looked into joining costco so i could get copious quantities of greek yogurt at a good price but they only minimally beat the grocery store in per ounce cost.

thats my costco story.

E: sams club does not exist in my state at all, and BJs doesn't seem to have any great yogurt deals either.

how do i eat 15lbs of greek yogurt a week cheaper, goons?

we don't even really do walmarts all that much in this part of the state, i assume because the land is prohibitively expensive and also getting trucks in and out of the city for it constantly would require its on highway exit lol

Buy an Instant Pot and make it yourself. This Recipe is great and basic so you can add in whatever flavor you want. I prefer just using Vanilla Bean. You can also adjust the time and temp to make it more or less tart and stuff. She covers all that on the recipe page.

If you also make Fruit compote that she has a recipe for you can make these which are great for breakfast.

thats a good suggestion probably but when we start adding in a time (my time) component it loses its value for me

also they talk about using whole milk and whatnot and i eat nonfat yogurt and literally 15-16 lbs a week of it.

its something to think about if i can make it scale well though

i also don't like it flavored right off the bat since i used it in a variety of meals. (with bran flakes or fruit or as a base for a dip, etc etc etc)

Marinate your meats in a spiced Greek yogurt goo, liberally eat with more yogurt mixed with dill, cucumber and lemon :yum:

Time wise isn't much as most of the time the pressure cooker is doing it's thing. Really only takes 2 minutes to put in the milk and starter and then a couple minutes again when its done to put it in a strainer to make it Greek. It helps to stir during the initial heating part to speed things up but isn't a must.

I do believe she says you can use any milk. Her picture even shows Reduced Fat Milk. You "thickness" will depend on the fat of the milk so less fat means it won't be as thick and creamy.

Never thought to look for those. How big of bulk though? When I buy them at Meijer it is $8 for 2 beans in a little cigar tube. I don't think I want to know what a jar of 1,000 would cost me.

I'm pretty sure they still sell them (I remember seeing them somewhat recently) but vanilla in general is crazy, absurd expensive right now.

As in, the bottle of vanilla extract that used to be $6 once upon a time is now $30. Some kind of worldwide shortage but I forget specifics. Anyways my point is that you probably don't want to buy vanilla beans right now unless you REALLY want to buy vanilla beans right now.

The old prices online say they were $12.99 for 10 beans. That's madness if they are still that cheap or even $20 for 10

That kettle corn is loving good, specifically because they use a nice light coating of sugar, and it's perfectly distributed across each piece.

By the way, speaking of K-Cups in your cart, I don't use them but I saw today that the starbucks French Roast K Cups are on clearance and sale at the same time.

Costco sized thing of K Cups for $24. Really, really good deal.
