I've cooked the frozen cauliflower rice in a pot then mixed in some chicken and topped it with some spoonfuls of Bitchin' Sauce. A tasty meal.

I also started adding a cup of water to the cauliflower rice, adding a chicken stock cube and some salt, then boiling it down. Makes it a bit more mushy, which is totally fine, but also adds some nice flavor. Solid based and the single frozen bag only has 80 calories. Fantastic rice substitute.

We picked up two of the Pendleton queen size blankets and my wife and dog are perma-cozy. Theyíre pretty soft when Iíve been able to grab a small corner from the blanket barons.

We got a big tub of the chipotle stuff at Costco. It had a cool texture and a nice spiciness that burnt coming and going. I ate too much, but then again it made me eat a ton of carrots and celery so maybe itís a wash. Iíd love to try the other flavors some day.

That stuff has like 1000% the calorie content of carrots/celery, but worth it

Anyone got the cooking instructions handy for the cauliflower rice that comes in five bags of 16 oz? I took one sub-bag to try it before committing but forgot to write down what to do with this thing.

Stovetop is 1 cup of water to boil, remove from bag add to boiling water, 5-7 minutes.

Or microwave 6-7 minutes in bag.

Instructions should be on the sub bag, it's 5-6 minutes in the microwave. Cook in bag.

Iím not sure if you are allowed to take pics in a liquor store so do not risk it but even the one youíre going to tomorrow would help to get an idea if it is good/interesting.

They sell booze at Costco because you are there, not because its a destination for booze. Prices are excellent but I never drive to Costco for booze, regardless of the savings. Its booze, not bulk items you use everyday.

The only reason to roadtrip to Costco for booze is because you want to buy a bottle of something that's +$1000 dollars and you will actually save good money.

That said, I'm a big fan of completely needless roadtrips for stuff if you wanna make a day of it.

They do have a large wine selection, all of which is at a good price. The Kirkland branded spirits are also usually decent, even the previously always lovely American vodka is better now. The aŮejo in particular is half the price of competing brands, and tastes just as good.

I will be gone, but not forever.


I was very pleased to see that they started selling those packs of men's wool socks in all the same color. I probably have close to ten pairs already, but they're all mismatched brands and colors and finding the matches is always miserable. I will never understand why companies sell packs of socks where every pair is different. Kids socks are the worst in this regard.


Chinatown posted:

Counterpoint: Most liquor lasts basically forever, so it's an excellent contender to buy at Costco.

That said, there's no way I would drive multiple hours just for Costco liquor. If you ignore my good advice, do your homework and make sure your Costco actually sells all the liquor they do other places. Some states have weird laws that seem to preclude them from selling anything the normal liquor stores do.

Counterpoint: uneven wear on various "same" socks caused by them being matched with a different friend each time means they don't match anymore and now pairing them up is horrible

At least if they have a different colour heel or whatever a given pair will generally wear evenly together

Is there any way to check online which Costcos actually carry Kirkland booze and wine? I live in NY, so all our Costco's don't sell booze, but they do have an attached yet separate liquor store. Initially I thought they only sold Kirkland at the Costco's that sell alcohol IN the store, but from searching around that's not the case. Apparently some Costco's with separate/attached liquor stores DO sell the Kirkland stuff. But mine doesn't

Most of my socks are the same kind. So if one wears out, I throw it out and keep the other until another one wears out. Boom, I have a new match.

50 different states, 50 different sets of liquor laws, untold number of municipal ordinances.

In my state we have attached, but legally separate, liquor stores and Costco can carry Kirkland alcohol in them. So can any other liquor store for that matter. One quirk of Mn law is that no alcohol can be sold exclusively at a single liquor store or chain. Everything has to go through a distributor and is for sale to any store that wants it.

That last bit really pissed off Total Wine when they expanded here. They consider their wholesale prices their "intellectual property" and got royally pissed off when independent liquor stores started buying their "exclusive" wines.

No, the Costco website and warehouse inventory systems are separate. Your best bet it to just call the store.

The only thing I miss from moving away from the South is having drive-thru liquor places. As long as you don't push the straw through the lid opening, it's still considered a closed container

e: check out the sizes you can get lmbo. They were also super dangerous because stuff like Skittles tasted like you were drinking straight Skittles (and never tasted the alcohol), and then suddenly you were super wasted and get a horrible hangover from all the sugar.
