One of our cats has claimed one of last years Monte & Jardin sherpa blankets, so guess I'm in the market for another now. She's been permanently camped out on one for the past few weeks.

Thermal control feet, but agreed. Best sleep.

In our house it's "monster bait." Anybody got anything nice to say about the down comforters Costco carries? We've had our queen-sized one FOREVER, and my wife has hinted more than once that it sure would be nice if we had a king-size down comforter to go on our queen-size bed. You know, for the overhang.

I'd go for one of these, but I really don't have $16k to spend, and I think you have to pick them up in person, which might prove difficult: https://www.architecturaldigest.com/story/most-expensive-eider-down-comforter

Oh drat it. I'm going to be moving within the year (hopefully), I want proper adult furniture. I love the style of these https://www.costco.com/torrington-3-piece-leather-set---sofa%2c-loveseat%2c-chair.product.100665837.html

Agghhh my aesthetic. I love them. I wanna drape them in sherpa throws and mildly ironic throw pillows.

What are the chances they'll still have them in stock in a year?

I have something similar that I bought 5 years ago, though the legs are different. It's only OK furniture. The leather on the cushions is really thin and already cracked through in places. I live by myself, so it's not like I have kids beating the crap out of it.

Can we build factory coconut farms that harvest with machines and put the mom and pop monkey coconut outfits out of business

Sure, but they just won't have the taste of small-farm, heirloom, monkey harvested coconuts.

we'd still need to train the monkeys to operate the machines but we could eliminate enough of them to still make some tasty chips

praise be, costco now has 32 oz jars of pickled asparagus for $7 each. that's the same price you pay for a lovely little 12oz jar at Kroger

Picked asparagus and pickled dilly beans were one of the things I hoped to find when I joined (as I'd seen references to them online as being carried at costco) but alas I was disappointed. My faith has been rewarded.

Fire them up on a nice hot propane grill until the internal temperature reads 165-170 and you've got a nice char.
Serve with ketchup and fries.

That's a loving joke right. You get a steaks internals to 165 you might as well throw it in the trash.

Edit: I feel I've been baited, but if it's the US there's nothing regulating the term wagyu check the actual marbling on the meat before you spend 200€ on a cut of meat

you shouldnt do it rare rare cuz fat is a connective tissue but you should also be banned from cooking if you tell peeps to get it to 170

Seriously though I go through flats of the Chaokoh coconut milk making a lot of curries and soups and now I feel bad for the poor monkeys.

I always think that I'll start harvesting and making my own, but by god peeling and cooking the coconuts is just one of those things that only a few aunties do and then they make all their grandchildren prep the coconuts.

Yeah what they meant was to *steam* them to 165 internally to make sure they don't char.

This is an ape, specifically an orangutan. They shave those and use them for sex work. Different kind of forced labor. Well, off to go watch the Jungle Book cartoon to imagine this great ape as a king instead of...that.

Got the Mac and Jack’s red beer at Costco in the SEA area. Super good, would recommend.
