My mailer just came and they have fancy electric toothbrushes 2/$60something which is a hell of a deal so I'm upgrading and giving the other one to my partner bc he's an overbrusher

Costco pesto is delicious

Kirkland pesto is hot garbage, it has hardly any basil in it ("basil blend" even, on the label) and is mostly crappy cheese filler. I made some pasta with it last night and had to use like 1/4 of the container to get any hint of green to the pasta.
Also their precooked grilled chicken packages are completely unseasoned, I'm gonna be making some returns.

Edit: the sonicare toothbrushes are incredible, though

Kirkland pesto used to be absolutely incredible in the late 90s through like 2003 and had a super strong fresh basil taste with lots of pine-nuts. they've reformulated it once or twice since then to make it have more cheap filler and less basil+less pine nuts, and i think it's latest formulation is quite meh for the reasons you say.

that said, i'm gunna disagree because I don't think it's hot garbage. it gets the job done for fairly cheap and it's perfectly edible, but it's nowhere near as incredible as it used to be. i usually do like half-tomato-based sauce and half-pesto sauce on pastas.

Fair enough, i just like my pesto to taste like basil :shrug:

I bought it because it's actually made from sheep's milk and it comes in brine so it doesn't go bad before i can use it :pray:

Went to the Co today and had to yell "EXCUSE ME" at two boomer women who were blocking the entrance to the cooler aisle with the soup. Then went to the checkout and had someone get in line behind me and walk up right on me as i was about to get called into the checkout, make direct eye contact with me, and get within two feet of me. I yelled at him too, then the checkout clerk had to tell him three times to start putting his stuff on the belt.

but it's not on the critical item because i have paper towels and various solutions of disinfectants in spray bottles that works well enough, it isnt too hard to dilute some bleach or all-purpose cleaner to spray and wipe.

Exactly, you have the means to use different stuff. There are disabled people that can't do that poo poo that need the pre-moistened wipes.

E: i have a friend with EDS whose wrist and fingers will dislocate if she tries to pick up a jug of bleach and if she tries to use a spray bottle. Please think about vulnerable people other than you.

The two of us live in a tiny 1br apartment and the membership is worth it because i have weird dietary needs (three frozen GF pizzas for $14??? Yes?? Also their goat cheese prices are crazy good) and the savings on gas and tp are more than enough to make it up.

Nice, we just had some Costco tri-tip steaks out of the anova tonight. I use lots of oil at med-high heat in a non-stick pan to sear. More even sear than cast iron and less smoke, I've found.

I think those were the same ones I tried and I thought it was pretty bad. As in, really hard to finish the package bad. I tried multiple ways of heating it up too; oven and stovetop in addition to microwave. I remember it being incredibly fatty, even when I cut off giant chunks of fat. I think like a lot of that pre-made stuff, less is more... It might be interesting at first but it falls off a cliff once the novelty wears off.

I picked that Hint water up from a suggestion in here a while back and I don't like it. It's weird, the flavorings they add are great, but the water itself tastes like municipal city water out of my tap. I know water doesn't taste like much but you can absolutely tell the difference in types of water.

I've never had a bottled water that I didn't like the actual water before.

Congrats on having decent tap water

I'm tempted to try one out but why is the red the only one that's not 100% cotton??? TF I'm trying to get my lesbian aesthetic on without contributing to microplastic pollution
