Cot Dam. You’re right. I’m at Willingdon Costco right now. And, it’s cheaper, like most things, here than in the USA. Our dollar is so weak nothing in the US is worth it. Except the Chicken Bake, ‘cause you can’t get that shit here.

Kirkland Oil is made by Warren which also makes Supertech (Walmart) and other brands. The BITOG oil nuts have declared it to be plenty good.

I tend to run Pennzoil because 1. Cheaper after rebates ($27 minus $10 for a 5L jug) 2. Previously I could get the Euro spec oil, though now that's moot because of VW 508.00 certification requirement.

Picked up a couple of bags of Maui Sweet Onion Kettle Chips. Did not know they're made in Canada (Most likely for our domestic market). Nothing Maui about it, lol. To get the real thing, you have to go to the US. Albertson's, Safeway, Haggen's, etc.

Not complaining. Having a bowl while watching the Blue Jays game.

Someone here was saying they use the salmon filets at Costco to make sashimi?

Do you have to freeze these before eating? Seems like there are mixed opinions on it lol

No, the consensus is that as long as it's farmed and frozen from Costco, it's good to go.

This.

Not just fast, the other hard part is to have a freezer that goes down low enough to kill all possible parasites. (-80°c)

Household freezer just won't cut it. I used to have a friend here who got one from work (high-end resto upgrading, and owner pretty much gave it to him by selling it for a symbolic toonie). Ohhh... the amount of sashimi we used to get when he was here.

Holy bejeezus................. I though Red Velvet Mini Cakes were awesome. I just picked up some of these and they are soooooooooooooooo..............soooooooooo....... good.

Caramel Apple Mini Cakes. Topped with condensed milk icing.

https://www.costcontessa.com/costco/...kes-at-costco/



Sorry. Forgot to add. Only at Costco's in the US of A. Damn......... why they get the good stuff?

Okay, their ketchup sucks and so do their sodas. Still...............

Amen.

I feel sorry for those people who never get to eat wild pacific salmon. Especially Fraser River Sockeye.

Atlantic Pinks are bad to begin with. Farming makes it even worse. Sit in a pen all their two year lives not fighting for their survival swimming in rough seas, river, streams, etc. Might as well chew on a rubber band.

/rant

The really shitty thing is. Open pen farming of salmon that don't even belong in our waters are killing our wild stocks.

This looks like a ton of fun, too bad I'm too heavy for it. Could be fun to have as a prop for those that have enough space inside their homes.

That is awesome... including description by someone who has never drifted before nor understands how to drift:
"Oversized rear wheels, you can drift just like in-game."

I do see how they have only put a rubber strip on the front wheels though... so bravo to the engineers lol

Apparently, Kleenex is pulling out of Canada.

Brighton still had a pallet or so left yesterday, so get yours while you still can. My wife hates Royale, so I donno what I'm gonna do.

I jokingly said we'd have to go to the US to get Kleenex now, and she replied "yeah I know"...fml

Ironic that Kleenex is what I usually reach for after I pull out.
