Also I had the al pastor salad today. I was disappointed. I've been cutting down on meat, so I was excited about having a Costco meal that wasnt just the cheese pizza.

What's y'all's favorite premade deli meal from Costco? I like the pre-portioned salmon with the basil pesto butter a lot. I'm trying a new one tonight: the enchiladas.

Love the salmon. Bakes up great.

Enjoyed the enchiladas recently which were delicious. Only issue was the cooking time/temp on the package (375/50min I think) didn't get me close to the 165 degree mark. Not a big deal, but plan for some extra time, and have a food thermometer handy.

The Mac & Cheese is a 2 billion calorie aircraft carrier of carbs. Its perfect but I try to avoid it as I'm trying to shed a few LBs.

The chicken alfredo is also excellent.

I have good news. The al pastor is a soy product. Which is shameful as hell and I refuse to eat such a thing.

I like to put panko on top of the Mac & Cheese before I bake it. Its great.

These are both good choices.

If your local Costco has the wasabi poke, that's a solid choice too. The other ones are kind of lovely, but the wasabi poke is a good blend.

I tried those frozen tikka masala naan pockets for lunch at work today. very good for something frozen and quick, but idk I still was pretty hungry after. It probably didn't help it was both my breakfast+lunch but feels like I still need to pack in a side with me for lunch like those salad bowls.

Cafeful, last time I thought I purchased 2 rib slabs but the package contained 3 and it was a lot of ribs to deal with

In the meat department, a vacuum-sealed cryovac of ribs will have 3 slabs, if they are on a styro tray and wrapped, it's 2 slabs. :science:

Pro tip: Melt a couple tablespoons of butter. Toss panko in butter, THEN sprinkle it on top of the mac. Maximizes your golden-brown-toastiness.

Plus it's already a calorie bomb, a little bit of butter isn't going to hurt anything.

Making a pilgrimage this evening to the 'sco for the essentials like normandy veggies and cheese. Also high quality gasoline at rock bottom prices.

Probably going to go an hour or so before closing so it should be a relatively relaxed affair.

I was at the co a few months ago and got flagged for the executive membership, the priest doing the ceremony was dressed like Willy Wonka, wearing the top hat and all, and gave me a snack sized kit kat bar. It was probably the best day of my life.

Does anyone know when they put out their travel packages? I'm planning a vacation for early 2019 and I really want to see what they've got

tfw you're peeing next to someone in the lineup and they don't know

the dry mushrooms at Costco are on clearance for 9.97 per 3/4 pound container.

You might be saying, that's not a lot of mushrooms. Except it is a gently caress ton of mushrooms in reality, as evidenced by the image below.

You just rehydrate the mushrooms in water. Best deal ever, keeps forever, get it and live your best life. If you aren't cooking with mushrooms you're loving up.

I always go through Costco Travel when reserving rental cars, at a minimum.

Sometimes their hotel offerings are a bit more than I want to spend....

We have had a great time with car rentals and their customer service over the phone. We very frequently seem to get free upgrades, end up with much nicer cars than what we booked/paid for.

I've only rented one car through Costco travel. I reserved a bottom of the barrel compact and when I showed up to Budget they gave me a Dodge Challenger R/T with about 300 miles on it. It probably didn't have anything to do with Costco but it was still loving awesome.

I like to think that having the Costco name on your car reservation sort of has some weight to it... they don't want to gently caress with the 'co, so they will make a little effort to keep the 'co acolytes happy.

Which pillows? I just picked up some luxury down alt pillows on sale today, not bad for the price. Thereís some high end Asha(?) brand of bamboo filled pillows for like $100 but I canít justify that over $11 for two

But yes you absolutely can. Costco has best return policy

I bought this Teriyaki Marinated Flank Steak a few weeks back and just now did a small BBQ by the lake today since it was a nice day. Not bad but I can do way better marinate myself, still ended up pretty tender but now I have a shitton left over so idk, maybe I'll make some teriyaki fajitas or something. probably wouldn't recommend it and not worth buying anything beyond their basic butcher cuts of meat, ive generally been disapointed and its not super overpriced, but still a bit overpriced.

also im pissed I went to get another 12-pack of siggis yogurt and this different costco (Vallejo) didn't have any at all :mad: They did have the yellow basmatti rice stuff that's pretty good, havent seen that in a year
