I just noticed this new item and had to try it. It is very good, my family loved it. The best thing about it is that it isn’t salty. Lower in sodium and it uses almonds instead of pine nuts “if you have an allergy”. I was able to add, Costco’s signature manchego cheese to it and it still was not salty.
We brought the two flavors up to the mountains, 90 minutes from Seattle last week and had multiple trials with friends and family. We all favored San Francisco Bay’s gourmet coffee, Fog Chaser.
Opening the package, you get a sweet aroma. Tasting our first cup was silky smooth sipping. Found it well balanced and medium bodied. Notes reminded me of sipping hot chocolate. I think it is our new favorite. I had more cups than I usually have, it was that good.
My family actually prefers San Francisco Bay as buyers already so I was happy we were presented the opportunity to receive samples from a representative. We compared it to the blend we already previously purchased from Costco “organic rainforest blend”. It is very close.
Tuxedo mousse cups and creme brulee are for block party at my neighborhood. These are guaranteed good times. People love these.
Turkey Jerky is a treat to myself for this weekend.
Bag of spinach is for Vitamix juice and cooking. I put the entire bag of spinach in the freezer. They stay fresh frozen for a long time (months). You should not freeze spinach if you want it for salad. I also freeze milk.
I will probably trash some cherries because I will not be able to eat them all. I no longer feel guilty about throwing away food. I pay tax and put my best efforts to cut down waste. That’s all I can do
** I trashed the cherries a few days later. They were not very good.
Check out Hot Buys deals at Costco.com. This sales event started today (July 29), and it’s good thru either August 4 or August 6th. The sale lasts for only 7 to 9 days.
There are only 27 items on sale. But there are some good stuff on sale, such as Kirkland Signature beef hot dogs ($3) and shampoos ($3). Costco shampoos are super good deal as is, but with $3 off, I will try to buy maximum allowed 2 bottles. Check out the sales here.
I followed the procedure step by step, but I couldn’t get it to work. I don’t know how to verify my membership. I logged in, but it doesn’t verify my membership. I gave up after a little try. I shall try again in a month or two.
Per husbands Fathers Day dinner request: Spinach ravioli’s. We cooked down Costco spinach first. Then I used my new red kitchen-aid stand up mixer I got on coupon sale from Costco to make homemade pasta.
I visited my coworker’s office on Monday (July 15, 2019). I was talking about how busy I was, that I had to skip lunch yet again. Then my coworker opened a bag of chips for me. It’s called ‘Cheez-It Snap’d’. She bought it at Costco, she said. So I took a few. Then I took a handful, and took another handful. Before I knew it, I was driving to Costco on my lunch time. They are very, very good. It’s cheesy and I taste hint of tangie flavor.
My educated guess is that Costco will stock them for only a few month. I shall get one more bag ASAP.
When I bought a bag on Monday., the plan was to open the bag Saturday as I take a picture of it. But, by Saturday, the whole bag was gone (yum). Their commercial doesn’t do justice. I don’t like the commercial, to be honest.
I am sorry I couldn’t find time to update my blog this weekend, yet again. I am dog sitting this weekend (4 dogs & 2 cats). I didn’t know at the time when I volunteered for the duty, but dog sitting is taking up my entire weekend. I felt sad when I left this morning (Sunday). They didn’t want me to leave. I came home to take a nap, relax, and pack for Monday. I am going back to the animals right now to spend Sunday night there. I will sleep there and go straight to work tomorrow. I think I will be very tired tomorrow.
I shop at Costco all the time. I take pictures of stuff I buy and scan my receipts. But, I keep being distracted for one excuse or another. Sorry about that. But I will be back. Do you know Christmas will come to Costco in a few weeks? It’s that time again.
Besides that I am doing good. It’s getting late, I should go now. Take care.
Hemming pants is my latest hobby. I just started to sew a few weeks ago. For now, I am still getting use to my new sewing machine. I still have about 50 pairs of pants to hem. I shall hem jacket sleeves next.
I wish I can learn from a professional. There are local sewing classes, but they make pillows and decorations (stuff that I don’t need). I guess I will pickup little details on my own as I spend more time and make mistakes. But, it would be nice if I somebody would give me a crash course – show me tricks.
It’s been fun so far. It adds spice to my wardrobes, because I control the exact length of my pants. I’m glad I keep finding new hobbies to enjoy. It keeps me busy and engaged. It’s scary to imagine what if I run out of hobby.
I am doing good. I am physically tired and busy that I couldn’t find time to update my blog. I have some free time today because today is 4th of July holiday. Here’s a quick update on what I’ve been doing lately.
Oh My God.. I need to tell you about my latest obsession with sewing machine and hemming my pants. I have 60 pairs of pants in my regular rotation, and I plan to hem most of them. I hem my pants in 3-4 different lengths to accommodate different shoes/boots. Also, some pants look better at certain lengths. So, I came up with a system to organize pants according to their lengths. It’s a simple and effective system. I would like to share that story with you, but it will take long~~ time to put that blog together. Coming up…
I stopped sleeping in my master bedroom. Now I sleep in my guest bedroom (nap room). I have concluded that I get better sleep and have more vivid dreams in the guest bedroom. I know, it sounds insane but there is no mistaking. I get better sleep in my nap room.
Now I only use master bedroom for sex. Well.. I have to find a girl first…. 🙁
And Finally – I completely disagree with this person below. She’s supposed to be a professional. (???)
Girlfriend, I ALWAYS wake up and decide what color I will wear that day. Always. Some mornings I say that exact phrase – “I am having a purple day“. Picking color of the day is what gets me going in the morning. You’ve seen my Instagram. It’s all about picking color in the morning. If you decide clothes depends on who you are seeing that day, you may be a prostitute or a clown.
Happy 4th of July. USA~! USA~! Talk to you soon. 🙂
Polder Stainless Steel Dish Rack will be on sale ($8.00 off). I desperately need a dish rack. But, its design is little funky. Some say the bottom is flat that water will not slide out. I shall check it out.
23st Costco shopping in 2019 – $43.79 (today) / $1447.34 (this year) Update: A week later, my order was cancelled by Costco. Out of stock, it said. Hm..
I’m a watch guy. It’s fun to get dressed and pick out a watch as a final touch.
Invicta is a cheap watch maker. They make mostly sub $100 watches. All of their watches look cheap, cheesy, and tacky. Their watches scream “I AM POOR~!!!“. But, this one… the one that’s on sale at Costco (#1260452 – $39.39) is beautiful. It’s beautiful because it’s a $30,000 Rolex Submariner copy cat. Its classic design is historically proven by Rolex. This Invicta watch sells for $80 elsewhere, so $40 is a very good price, and it’s backed by Costco. $20 sale ends June 16.
I was never interested in diver watches before. But, for a Rolex look-alike for $40.00?… So I ordered one ($43.79 after tax. Free shipping) . I never dive. Maybe I take bath with it.
Update: This watch is now sold out soon after my blog. I kind of guessed they would sell out (with or without my incluence).
To give proper credit, Invicta watches are cheap, but not horribly bad. That’s why I ordered one (thanks to Costco and Invicta). When you travel or camping, you can slap this on without worrying about getting it damaged. I am glad Costco sells Invicta.
