Went to Costco for the first time since March today and it felt like getting my soul back in alignment. We visited every aisle and I canít for the life of me imagine there is that much demand for jalapeŮo cheddar bagels but what do I know Iím not an internationally successful wholesaler

Toujours Mike's pizza SUPERSTAR pizza trip report.

Two for 17.99 CDN


After 17 minutes at 450 on the bottom rack of a gas oven atop the Toujours Mike's cooking sheet:


It was tasty and is very large by traditional frozen pizza standards. The mushrooms were a powerful flavour in the SUPERSTAR experience. Cheese was bountiful and very stretchy. I will probably buy this again when I want an upmarket frozen pie and not my usuals or the $2.50 per pie No Name bulk pep pizza.

Needless crust shot to see how the Toujours Mike's sheet did.


And no I don't ever use timg links thank you.

I am the ideal candidate for buying an air fryer. My freezer fries bill is considerable. I prepare all manner of pre-fried chicken at all hours. I buy a shitload of par-fried food regularly. My wife even has one in our amazon account's saved for later list. I should own one.

But I cant get past that its all going to be cooked in this loving coffermaker looking thing with a cheap plastic fry holder drip coffee filter holder thing that should have been made instead in to action figures or coat hangers. I simply do not understand this technology.



Is that thing seriously just plastic? It can't be.

Love spending hundreds of dollars, to have a useless piece of poo poo on my counter, so I can save three minutes cooking some frozen trash.

It's mind numbing seeing people waste money on things they don't need during a financial crisis because they're brains have been broken into only feeling happy when they spend money.

I'm going to spend the three quarters of a million dollars on this stove and heat my freezer fries on the french tops just to spite you.

Lots of terrible opinions on multi use appliances that require you to learn TECHNIQUE

I bought an egg steamer because boiling water is just too many variables.

Give in to a kitchen full of single use electrics and you can shut off your brain and just be a food robot that gets consistent results.

As soon as Amazon or Costco stocks an electric bean frencher, I'm right there on it. Consistently frenched beans every drat time.

California has no business curing salami. None.

I'd eat salami from any other state before I touch "Calami"

UPS's internal workings are like the eye of terror for packages. Its a grimoire symphony of package hate. Fedex to their credit just dosent want to transport boxes, only their precious $89.99 branded envelopes containing next-day by 8-am contracts and legal letters, and will offload them to unrelated company FedEx Ground. UPS actively hates packages.

Pitney Bowes isn't a carrier of anything and lol if your company got scammed by their collegeboy gelled hair creep sales man into thinking the are capable of anything other than basic franking and leasing out envelope moistening systems at what you'd pay for a minicomputer.

Just got back with some serviceable Instant pho and a ton of Kirkland infant formula.

A samples guy was standing behind a plexiglass barrier with a small sad plate of tiny Kirkland frozen pizza slices. I asked for a sample. He said it was display only. I wanted to say those grapes are probably sour anyway but that poor guy had to spend all day fending off the sort person that handles rejection badly

The pizza SUPERSTAR pizza was down to just two boxes left and I took that to be directly related to my power as an influencer.

Making homemade croissant dough is easy and rewarding, it freezes reasonably well and you can make plain croissant or pain au chocolat. Hell you can get that good Kerry gold butter at Costco. Cooking and baking aren't chores. They're rewarding experiences that allow you to express yourself creatively and really put your passion into creating the best possible finished product you can.

So there was a couple in front of me at the checkout line causing a delay while they fetch a manager. Apparently they ďalways were able to use their dadís membership card to buy things for himĒ, but today Costco said no. Never did see the resolution, they were able to get me through by scanning everything in my cart while the problem coupleís food sat on the conveyor belt.

I went to member service desk last month to get a spouse card as my wife was immobilized and since she wasn't there they couldn't give me one, but the manager told me not to bother and just use her card. I didn't ask why but it seemed like it was something they weren't currently enforcing because of covid. I look nothing at all like my wife and they were right it just worked every time. This was costco canada though.
