I have been made aware of this thread.
The Kirkland dehydrated onions are amazingly useful. That is my contribution to this thread that I will now lurk and bookmark. Namaste.

I'm also poor and single so I wouldn't be able to put that beer cheese to use.

Lol, just get the other one they have on sale for $30 every so often. I love mine.
..Also is the bidet y'all talk about that one that's currently about $30? Or something more expensive? The babybel talk earlier almost tempted me to get the white cheddar ones. But I didn't.
I did get so much water and tea though.

Oh wait really? I like the card and money back from that, but it doesn't have to be exectuive to qualify? Hmm.

There was a line to get into church this afternoon. First time I've been to it since they started limiting how many people could be in the store at once. After I was in the shopping experience was great. Walls upon walls of toilet paper. It was a bit unsettling to see zero chicken breast available but most other items were in stock.

Thighs are better anyways.
I went in to one of the central OH ones today. No TP, but most everything else was there. I got more of the plastic Snapwares, and two cases of the Bai water. And also the Bitchin sauce. And dammit, it's good.

e - also no line to get in here and minimal attempts at spacing except at the registers which were moving quickly. We've got less than 200 cases currently, and 14 in my county. It's mostly in the NE now.

I went to the costco in Polaris outside of Columbus and they had a line out the door, but it was nice and quick. Got plenty of snacks and produce and a poo poo ton of sparkling water for cheap. Cashier was named Mac and his nametag said 'N CHEESE' underneath that. PBUC.

Oh hey neighbor. I went over the weekend as well, and they're taking the distancing seriously. The BAI waters are good, btw. And the diet green tea. That goes to, anyone really.

Then the Kroger down the Parkway...lol, no difference from normal other than no paper products and the like.

Hey whatup neighborino. I'm not surprised, that Kroger is super hit or miss on weird stuff. I've found really good craft beer and all the boars head lunch meats you could want there, but also missing like, major brand snacks or being out of any good Jeni's flavors.

Also I got a loaf of the sourdough from Boudin, that stuff is LEGIT. Comes presliced, we have used that for sandwiches, using COSTCO evoo and italian seasoning for garlic bread, and also as a service device for garden veggie cream cheese. Huge loaf for $3. PBUC.

The Meijer is good at least. I only hit the Kroger when I have coupons. lol
I'll have to look for this sourdough. Especially for the next two weeks when I've got a few days of, using PLT because we're not super busy at the hospital, yet.

I miss being 5 minutes from there and that Costco. The Easton Costco is awful, crowded, and I haven't seen panda-brand pot stickers in months. It wasn't that bad when I went for supplies and communion today around noon. Got more mango juice, booze, fruit, and snacks.

You could still make the drive. My parents and sister go to the Easton one because that's closer for them. The Polaris corner is my local. The gas is slightly easier at Easton though at least.
(Also after all This is over, meeting local folk could be neat, that applies to Lobsterboy too.)

The drive between 71/70 isnt too bad on 270 even on bad days, definitely doable to hop between the two. I like the Polaris one a hell of a lot better just because Easton is crazy busy. Polaris is across the street from the mall and only has to deal with Cabelas.

And yeah, Ohio used to be a solid goonmeet spot. Assuming the plague goes away, I'm down for a Polaris hangout. I'm WFH for at least another month and maybe longer, my company is super relaxed about even bothering to try and force going back.

I'm at a hospital so I'm essential, haha frick. Everybody is wearing masks.
But I'd be down for the idea of a goonmeet, idk about Polaris specifically because I don't know the food there so well. But there's a Hot Chicken at Easton, or the Melt. Funny how I like the food there better because I'm more familiar. :v:

fortunately it's county (maybe state?) law to wear masks to pickup food/beverages/shop and employees have to kick people out who don't, so that seems to at least abolish some of the stubborn idiocy.

Some poor employee is going to be murdered by someone who thinks their FREEDUMS are being imposed upon. Because said employee dared to try to kick them out from buying their Starbucks or McDonald's... :sigh:

Columbus Goons. The Polaris Costco doesn't have the butter chicken sadly. But it does have the margarita with tequila that reddit is raving about. Also $25 for almost 8 pounds of chicken thighs seemed like a pretty good deal since I use those for my chicken cooking needs.

Also got communion because I was craving a dog. Missing the onions still though.

This stuff. The margarita is indeed very good just straight with ice, shockingly so. Like the quality of what you'd pay for a glass at that same ($8.99?) price at your local good Tex-Mex place.

There's a wine cocktail one as well, made with agave wine. I didn't see that at the Polaris one (idk what it's like in other states obviously.) So, keep an eye out. You want the tequila one.

But my wife and I will do a daily walk to get out of the house and that margarita you pour into a glass is always great to come back to, since you barely have to do anything.

Yeah twas me, apparently the wine based one is pretty good too. But the Cbus ones have the vodka base and it's shockingly good for the price.

I was very disappointed at the Polaris costco because there were people doing the same, and they had been SO GOOD about it. Saw a few dudes just not even trying to keep their face covered, and one lady not even with a mask on her. And ironically, it was the first time I've EVER seen masks and hand sanitizer and wipes all in stock at the same time.

Just a complete shame all around, Costco. You were the chosen one! (I still got a ton of snacks)

I was just there today and, yeah it sucks :<
I got in and out quick though. Just went in for tea, and the Monster I saw someone mention being on sale because of early work, lol. (Even if I can usually grab one from the cooler when no manager is around. Perks of kitchen life.)

So what I'm getting is this is a toaster oven, and you can turn on the turbo/fan part to have the hot air circulate quickly, which is the entire point of an air fryer? For 1/2 the price and way more cooking capacity?

That's a convection oven for ya! We're spoiled in the restaurant world. But for $100, yeah I'm tempted. Especially with the cheap apartment oven I have.
