I am currently putting Raw Maca powder (1/2 Tbs ) in my Vitamix juice twice a day.  It gives my juice a hint of raw root taste.  I don’t have a girlfriend and I have absolutely no stress in my life, so it will be tough to monitor changes in me. But, I like what I read about Maca.

Maximus Smart Security Light at Costco

Maximus Smart Security Light (Costco #1145059) is an outdoor light with built-in HD security camera. It will record high definition video with sound. Video clips are stored in cloud where you can review and download. You can watch live video feed and control the unit with your mobile devices. It comes with basic free services which can be upgraded to paid services.

My favorite function is audio and light alert when somebody approaches to my door. To me, that alert alone is worth of purchasing the unit. Bad guys are unlikely to pursue my house after seeing that.  See video below.

Costco Shopping – August 31, 2018

42nd Costco shopping in 2018 – $31.70 (today) / $2841.61 (this year)

I have never purchased anything from sampling food at Costco until today.  Hawaiian Style Chicken was SOOO good that I had to buy it.  I shall buy it one more time.

I bought St Louis Style Ribs to celebrate Labor Day.  The ribs were… OK.  I like the oven cooking instruction on the package (picture below).  I shall use that cooking technique but with different seasonings.  I used a baking pan that’s about 1/2 inch high.  You don’t have to use 2 Inches deep pan .  I don’t know why it asks for 2 inches high – it scares people who don’t know how to cook.

 

First Hint of Christmas at Costco, 2018

I was little disappointed that it didn’t scream “CHRISTMAS”

Ribbons were at Costco on August 1st, 2018, just as I expected.  But, they didn’t have any obvious Christmas designs such as snow flakes or Santa.  Still, these ribbons are hinting us to get ready for Christmas.

Raffle & Review: Warrior Mix by Bee Free

Raffle is Ended: Congratulations to Cathryn

Enter for free 3 bags Warrior Mix, now available at Costco.

Warrior Mix is granola mix – and they are absolutely amazing.  First of all, it’s the best tasting granola mix that I know of.  Additionally they are; gluten free, paleo friendly, dairy free, grain free, preservative free, soy free, GMO free, and contains no refined sugar.

Our friends at Bee Free will send 3 bags of Warrior Mix to a raffle winner (1 x 17oz,  2 x 9oz) .  Winner will be drawn on September 1, 2018.

Warrior Mix, Bee FreeWarrior Mix is very tasty, and you can taste goodness of the ingredients. It has sweet and nutty taste. Once you start eating it’s hard to stop. One day, a friend came over for dinner.  I spent 2 hours in the kitchen that day.  As she settled down at my house, I gave her a sample taste of Warrior MIx so she would give me a quick review.  She gave me thumbs up, and ate almost the entire bag.  She was so full that she barely touched the special dinner I made.  I was not happy about the dinner, but was happy for Bee Free. They are really tasty.

There is no particular shape for these granola.  They have basic “chunky” shape, but they will get broken apart.  So, you can eat them like cookies, add to  cup of yogurt, or add milk and eat like cereal. I grab a handful of loose granola like nuts and pop ’em in my mouth.

Check out the video below.  Mother’s love is put in to her products.

Bee Free products are available at Costco.

Costco Shopping – July 27, 2018

35th Costco shopping in 2018 – $41.68 (today) / $2708.52 (this year)

I looked everywhere, but I didn’t see any sign of Christmas at Costco today.  But Christmas is coming to Costco very soon, I promise.

I really like Kirkland Signature Basil Pesto, so I bought one more jar while it was still on sale. They freeze well. I guess they will last well over a year in freezer.  If you take it out of freezer they quickly become soft that you can scoop it out while pasta is getting ready.

I shall always keep this Basil Pesto along with pasta at home.

I bought Jose’s Chocolate Raspberry coffee to get ready for Christmas. I will enjoy this coffee on Thanksgiving day when I bake turkey, and when I watch Polar Express on Christmas Eve.

2 dozen roses were $13.99.  I couldn’t think of a reason NOT to buy them.

Costco Shopping – July 22, 2018, Organic Cherries

34th Costco shopping in 2018 – $76.22 (today) / $2666.84 (this year)

I went out for Sunday morning Costco shopping.

Sunday morning Costco shopping is special to me.  I have to make a special plan and get up earlier than usual. It’s a hassle because I want to enjoy lazy Sunday morning.  But, it’s fun once I’m out and about.

Costco is crazy busy on Sunday, so I arrived there exactly at 10 AM and left before 10:30AM.  There was no fooling around.  I just focused on my shopping list.  As a shopping list, I use Costco APP’s “Lists” feature.

Cherries are amazing good. I have tried both organic and non-organic cherries from Costco.  Organic cherries are much better (tastier) than non-organic cherries.  I will only buy organic cherries from now on.  Before Costco, I used to buy Cherries from local farmers market.  Costco’s organic cherries are as good as those from farmers market, except I get more at Costco.

I went to Walmart after Costco.  I came home at exactly 11am.

Costco Shopping – July 13, 2018

32nd Costco shopping in 2018 – $35.43 (today) / $2561.69 (this year)

I made a quick stop at Costco Friday after work.  I didn’t buy anything exciting.  I didn’t see my favorite sample lady today.  I didn’t see my little buddy at optical department.

I picked up two dozen roses.  They were only $13.99.

I almost walked out… then I went back for a hot dog.
