Middle of the day on a work day is the real pro move'

Stop in, get a shitload of paper towels and a hot dog

I work from home and live 10 minutes away from both a constantly packed normal Costco and a Costco business center. I only go to the normal Costco if I have to, and only when they open in the morning. On the other hand I've gone to the business center just for a hotdog a few times. Never seen a line at the business center, even on the weekends.

Chocolates of the world are back in stock this year. There's some dang idiot that's removed most of the good chocolates and replaced them with crap. Nobody wants pumpkin spice chocolate, snickerdoodle (does not contain any chocolate - white chocolate is not chocolate), and key lime pie flavored chocolate. Get the belgian chocolate box instead.

Can confirm, didn't like most of this year's Chocolates of the World.

I found out the no-dispenser Costco I go to sometimes, you can ask for onions at the kiosk and they'll give it to you in a little plastic cup.

My local Costco put out a bin of onions and a little scoop for it near the register when the onion dispenser was MIA for some reason. I preferred that method; the dispenser is a bit too scary looking for me.

Now I want to try one with an Italian sausage instead of a hot dog. Is the Italian sausage an east coast thing? Don't think I've seen it out west, you guys got the late polish I believe?

Don't want to put you off your ham, but if you start seeing tiny tiny bugs on it, don't panic and throw it out the window. It is quite normal and expected for a jamon to get these and you either ignore them and eat away (like my dad) or wipe them off + plus give the top slice to your dad (me).

How are those steak strips? How does one prepare them? If seasoned and cut up, would they be good in steak fajitas/burritos?

It's thick cut beef jerky, not uncooked beef. It's good if you like the really chewy and meaty kind of jerky.

Serious(heh) answer: It is our acronym of praise for Costco.

Praise Be Unto Costco.

Usually uttered when you leave the joint with a cart full of goods at a deep discount and a scary cheap hotdog. (Has anyone eaten more than one in a sitting?)

Always ask for the kraut, they have it behind the counter.

I was also wondering about this. I got one of those little toilet night lights and let me tell you, after three weeks that thing is just coated in poo poo spray

Um, close the lid before you flush?

Once I started really taking care of my home, I realized that sitting down to pee and closing the lid when I flush makes cleaning near the toilet a breeze. Flushing with the lid up just fountains poo poo and piss particles all over your bathroom.

And I have one of those fancy electronic bidets in one bathroom; you install it yourself and it's really easy. You just unscrew your toilet seat, bolt it on, plug it in, and hook up your normal cold tap. They use an internal tank to heat up the water without needing a hot water line coming in, so it's not like you can soak your rear end in hot water, but it's more than enough to clean your hole.

Just make sure the bidet you buy fits the dimensions of your toilet.

Literally just finished doing this an hour ago. And while I was jarring my stock, I put that $1.99/lb Costco pork loin in the Instant Pot to make some shredded pork for dinner. Costco has blessed me today.

I buy one of their rotisserie chickens once every week, and I almost always make stock with the carcass afterwards. I end up with so much stock that I can't even store it all and I end up giving it away to friends, or sometimes even throwing it out. Clearly I need a Costco freezer, but I am a poor renter, and I don't want to have to move the thing every other year.

If you have too much stock, just keep reducing it until you get a semi/psuedo demi-glace then freeze it. Even a low effort sorta demi-glace makes pan sauces and stuff really tasty and easy.

I have been called on to address allegations that I sought to mislead the Costco thread in what is now being referred to as the PizzaDog Fiasco.

I swear upon a unopened package of Kirkland Signature Beef Dinner Franks (14 count, No corn syrup, phosphates or fillers) that even though I used a random picture from the internet, it was only with the purpose of posing the idea of wrapping such a beefy delight with glorious pizza. It was a postulation, a theory for which I promise to put to the test at my soonest opportunity.

It's loving disgusting. And instead of being white like most vanilla protein powder comes out, it was an incredibly unsettling shade of baby-poop green once I added my almond milk.

I have 25 servings left, and by God I will power through them somehow. I should probably try doctoring it by tossing in a banana or peanut butter powder.

Please return it instead of powering through it. Not only do you get your money back, the 'co gets to know that at least one member thinks the product sucks.

Chicken bakes in their current incarnation are kinda gross. They should reformulate them minus the Caesar dressing and use ranch instead. Add some bacon bits too if they want to take it to Flavortown.

They really need to go back to the real chicken they used to contain instead of the spongy textured crap that's in them now. Then up the bacon bits a bit and add a little more sauce, and it'll be the chicken bake of old that was actually good.

They use the same chicken you see on the caesar salads (which is your food service standard grilled chicken stuff).

It's not nearly as bad when it's cold and surrounded by crisp lettuce, but hot and in a chicken bake, it tastes awful.

They run a ham and cheese croissant through the pizza oven and it comes out nice and crispy.

The super lovely thing is the soda machine. Because of the local laws there, it's illegal to sell unlimited soda. So they have barcodes on every single cup, which you have to scan at the soda fountain in order to get anything out of it. And it's only allowed to dispense soda twice for each bar code, but it is so flaky you're only going to get about 2/3rds of a cup at best.

Here is a picture I posted earlier in the thread:



As disturbing as it is to hear of limited refills, I'd trade unlimited refills for those ham and cheese croissants and scorching hot tenders and fries.

The Ninja is okay. Got one for some friends and they like it well enough.

Then we got a Blendtec at Costco on a deal and it definitely pulverizes better than the Ninja.


And sadly the true answer is always Vitamix if you can swing it.

Be careful, Vitamix updated their lineup a while ago to cash in on their popularity, and some of the models aren't great. The small cup one was pretty poo poo last I heard, and the wide pitcher is much less effective for home cooking. I have a hand-me-down old model from my parents, and they kinda regret upgrading because they ended up getting a more expensive pro model after they returned one of the new consumer models they hated. The old one they gave to me is still working like a champ.

It has been replaced with this abomination. A "sausage pizza".

I am heartbroken. What do I do? A comment card was written, what is the next step?

Give it up my friend. South Korea doesn't really like pepperoni, and that looks like a typical Korean pizza.

The only pizza I enjoyed when I lived in Korea was Gino's in Itaewon, but that was a dude deliberately replicating NY style pizza as faithfully as possible.
