crossposting from the Irma Party Thread

Got a link to the Irma party thread? Edit. I am thinking about a dog, and it has been far too long since my last trip through the fair gates. I will be going tomorrow I think.

Got organic chicken breast, couscous, those nifty travel pants, a lot of awesome frozen fish and of course a dog. Also stopped by the glasses counter to find out my glasses size, just so I can go buy ray bands online. Glasses guy informed me I should test them out in person because of the nose piece at a sun glasses hut first, before ordering online.

Another key Costco fish win: the super cheap and delicious rock fish that flosses like a superstar in your fish tacos or just fried up

Also the tilapia fillets pan seared with spices, a side salad and a side of rice make for an amazing dinner that takes about ten minutes to prepare (not counting rice cook time)

The current run of cargo shorts with stretchy waists is a godsend for older dudes. I have every color of the Gerry ones.

Other pro tip. Shorts rarely look good, so everyone talking about cargo shorts looking bad miss the point. Also, fit dudes in the summer in cargo shorts look just fine. As long as theyíre wearing a button up shirt or t shirt and Appropriate footwear.

Whatever brick and mortar stores survive the longest and still have a large enough footprint for people to, go there and buy stuff, will equalize its prices with Amazonôô© more or less

Walmart and Target and Costco and Amazone will still be places where you can buy the things, the physical stores will all be right across the street from each other

Thank god my two favorite stores are Target and Costco... well and Apple, but they will be fine.

Theyíre pretty much there for customer service. So people have a place to take their hosed it products or for old people to get their questions answered.

Also, itís good to try sizes of stuff out before you buy. (Discovering the new keyboards suck on their laptops for instance.)

We have a little 1BR apartment and we shop at Costco religiously.

Just need to get a little creative at times, and alternate what we stock up on. Don't buy toilet paper and paper towels at the same time, only buy one thing of meat at a time, etc.

The only reason I want a bigger apartment or a house is so I have room for a second freezer for Costco 😂😂😂

As someone who is now on a Keto diet, Costcoís prices on cheeses and meat are even more appreciated. And I grabbed a hammock of course, and it looks great.

Returned the hammock today (I love it, but there is no place for me to put it :( ) but grabbed the new Stephen King Book, and the new office chair they have that feels amazing.

I would have grabbed a dog, but Iím on Keto right now and eating a dog without a bun feels wrong.

Went to church last night. And there were 20 cars in the lot. Why? Well there was a massive fire just across the street an hour before, and they had to evacuate! Tons of fire trucks, and shaken employees. They closed for an hour, and then re opened for the last hour (as I pulled up) strangest and quietest Costco trip ever. Tempted by their backpacks. Sad they didnít have Its-Its :(. Would have gotten a dog, but Iím on Keto and donít want one without a bun.

THINKING ABOUT THAT DOG

Some of these posts are like reading the vegan sub reddit. I get the organic chicken from Costco, (even if you donít believe in hormones being pumped into the chicken is bad for us, the taste is different.) and generally donít eat non local beef. (I mostly donít eat beef). Disclaimer, I think the whole argument that the world should go vegan because of think of the animals is missing the point... some of us really donít care as much about that. Im sorry, I will never care as much about a cow as a homeless person. That being said, the argument about environmental impact from farming animals is very strong, and should be leaned into more than the shaming a lot of vegans go for.

As for Costco related content, mom drove to Costco today and grabbed an air hockey table to surprise my Niece and nephew. Table looks dope, and is heavy as hell. They have no clue itís being set up tomorrow for Christmas :). Itís going to be great.

I've discovered tikka masala is insanely easy to cook. we cook paneer tikka masala instead of chicken since the gf is vegetarian, but it's even basically no carb as well so good for diets and i ate that a lot with cauliflower rice while i was on a keto diet.

costco carries paneer but it seems hit or miss, if we can't get it we'll just use tofu.

if you want the recipe, pm me. secret is also some fenugreek leaves to go with it that really brings it up to top notch restaurant quality.


Just post it here! I donít have PM.
