My pro tier tip on the Baby Belles: Before consuming, leave them out unrefridgerated for a bit to come up to room termp. I always ate them straight out of the fridge and while good, they were kinda bland. One day, coming home from church, we missed them while we were putting perishibles in the coolers (I live almost 4 hours from church, gotta bring the coolers and the insulated bags) and found them in the blessed box with the non perishable items. I decided to open one up to make sure it was ok. I was amazed at the creamy texture and flavor after they came to room temp. Now when we get them Ill pull them out of the fridge for an hour or so before eating them.

Turns out you're supposed to do that with lots of cheeses, I didn't know that because good Costco cheese never lasts an hour out of the fridge at my house.

Nah they're a bit different:



The main problem is the chicken is super dry, and nothing about the kit is that good or flavorful. It would be serviceable for a last minute dinner if they fixed the meat.

Holy poo poo. I have been informed that you can buy the churros frozen from the Costco food court and fry them at home.

This is a party revelation. Chocolate and/or cinnamon-sugar dipped churros, fresh? Yes please.

The chicken quality is probably highly variable. I can nearly guarantee itís just leftover rotisserie chickens they didnít sell.

I tried it once for the novelty and thought it was OK. The main problem is that thereís nothing in there that saves you that much effort compared to making an equivalent meal yourself.

Iíve gone through a lot of jackets here in norcal trying to find one that isnít too warm when the sun is out, but is insulated enough when itís foggy or raining.

My current jacket is exactly what you described- it stops wind but doesnít make me sweat through my button down dress shirt. Only the body has any insulation, and it has a hood for when it goes from 70 to 40 which it does randomly

Wasn't one of the literal design goals of IPA that it could survive long-rear end trips from Britain to, like, India?

Yes. The hop oils acted as a preservative according to my old William's Brewing catalogs.

I mean, I guess I'd say "their drinkability is materially unaffected by".

A lot of West Coast IPAs can often seem a bit, um, "performative" in their hoppiness?

My parents brought me up in the true faith, being baptized into the Price Club. Living 1/4 mile from church, we went often. If my Costco memories were 1/4 lb all beef hot dogs and drinks with refill I could feed the world.

Welcome to the land of milk and IPAs. Our local church in Denver Metro started carrying beer after a law change this year. A full isle of local and other domestic crafts and macros. It's very nice. I did have to choose whether or not I wanted a true local in Upslope or Breckenridge owned by Anheuser and I went for Breck this time. I still feel kinda lovely about it.

Picked up some Tilamook mint chocolate ice cream sandwiches today, and they are fantastic. Close second to the peppermint they had around Christmas, and a bit better than the chocolate ones. Wish they stocked these more regularly, but it's probably for the best they don't.

Yeah it's a lot of this, or when my coworkers are telling me they're looking for the best something or other and they picked the "Amazon choice" or whatever popped up first on Google.

I've gotten good recommendations from Wirecutter and bad ones, but it's a decent jumping off point. Their towel recommendations were crap in the past, especially for the price point.

Yall are a bad influence, I find myself off work early and drop a bill. I got new fire extinguishers for the trucks since I used one this weekend, and some Renegade beer brewed local.

Plus the good snow brushes are back! I bought my truck in the spring and I was too late to get a good one anywhere.

Yeah I can't get over this take it makes no sense.

The only beer I have ever felt is consistently spoiled is Stella Artois it seems like a 50/50 chance if it just is utterly terrible and am not sure if its the green bottles or it being imported.

You people vouching for IPAs lasting a long time are acting real dumb.

Sorry I'm not trying to be rude but it's just such an ignorant viewpoint. IPA standards have evolved since the 18th century. Mind blown, I know.

Spoken like a man who drinks skunked-rear end IPAs on the regular, but by all means explain to me, someone who has been drinking IPAs and been involved with those brewing them for 15+ years, how IPAs work.

I feel you man but in my extremely personal opinion, chicken is not a great meat for tacos. I usually put together a chili verde with a nice pork shoulder, but there are a bunch of ways to go about it. Pastor, lengua, chile verde, carne asada. All superior choices imo.
