Kirkland Signature’s Atlantic Salmon (#46340) is a handy food item that I wish to keep in my freezer all the time. A 3-pound bag is currently on sale for $5 off (Feb 2020). They are individually wrapped and frozen to accommodate people like me who don’t live next door to a fish market. For the next several months, I will have salmon whenever I want. I always buy them when they are on sale. One bag has 7 portions of salmon. So one piece of salmon is $3.12. Now, steam up some vegetables, and you have a good meal. It’s Kirkland Signature quality, money-saving, healthy, and you can avoid going to the restaurant.

FYI: I HATE restaurants, mainly because they give me bad tables. I will eat out more often if they stop sitting me by the toilets. Don’t get me started.

They recommend us to thaw frozen salmon by unwrapping it first and place it in the refrigerator for 8-10 hours. But I often put it in cold water while it’s still in the wrapper for a quick thaw. Personally, I cannot tell the difference in how I thaw it.

Below is cooking instruction from the package.

Bake: Heat oven to 400 F. Place in a well-oiled baking dish. Bake portions for 10 to 12 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 F.

Grill: Heat grill to medium-high. Place on a well-oiled grill and cook for approximately 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, or until internal temperature reaches 145 F.

Microwave: Remove thawed salmon from packaging. Place in a microwave-safe dish that has been lightly coated with oil or cooking spray. Cover with plastic wrap and peel back one corner to allow steam to escape. Microwave at high power 4 to 5 minutes, turning once. Make sure the internal temperature reaches 145 F. Remove from microwave and let sit for 3 to 4 minutes before serving.

8th Costco Shopping in 2020 – $115.96 today / $460.84 this year
Member Only Savings – $22 today / $90 this year

Instant savings saved $22. Costco’s member-only savings is a major part of my Costco shopping habit. I often hold out on some purchases, hoping they will be on sale.

Costco Basil Pesto (#990551) was not on sale. The last time I saw these on sale was 2 years ago (2018) for $3 off. The next time I see them on sale, I shall buy 4 bottles. They are very good and they also freeze well. I think they can last over a year. Combined with pasta from Costco, I can enjoy excellent quality pesto at any random moment.

I bought a bag of Kirkland Signature Atlantic Salmon (#46340 $21.99 after $5 saving). Each bag contains about 7-8 individually vacuum-packed salmons. They are so good and so fancy. I should buy one more bag before the sale ends.

CJ Bibigo steamed Dumplings are quick and fun (#107699 $7.99 after $4 saving). It takes only 3 minutes to prepare. There are 6 tiny dumplings packed as a unit (see picture). A Chinese coworker told me he didn’t like these dumplings. I would love to try homemade authentic Chinese dumplings.

I switched from organic eggs to non-organic.

Just how good are authentic homemade Chinese dumplings, anyway? How will I ever know? Sometimes I feel like I’m missing out on too many things in life.
