I'm just now eating one of those huge Costco muffins (lemon and raspberry) for breakfast at 11:30 after taking two walks, one for each dog, gone to Costco and to HEB and unpacked everything. It was a good run. Much as I don't like Costco I did manage to get a couple of needed things without too much crap, always a challenge. I think next time it rolls around I'll not renew. We end up getting stuff we don't need or I get the three or four things I really need and then wonder why I'm in the store.
One interesting thing I really wanted to see at Costco was the Turbotax display. I could not remember how much getting it at Costco saved. Turns out it works out to a penny less at Costco and really, if you do taxes early (which I can't do since I don't get all my inputs until end of March) there is a significant discount online so the Costco deal, like many of them, is not a deal.
I did manage to get one set of beef medallions that is really what I went for. They are three inches thick and not huge but they are restaurant grade at a fraction of the cost. I'll let them dry out in the refrigerator until at least tomorrow. I've got shallots for a good sauce and potatoes to bake and a leftover okra/tomato mix that is a little too spicy but good. And qualifies as a green vegetable.( Collapse )
