Typically on Mondays I go to work in the morning, do my thing, finish up around 4:30-5:30, grab a quick bite to eat and the get my list and head down to Costco ready for a pretty relaxing stroll of the isles… checking things out, fulfilling my list, snapping pictures of the sales, thinking of things to talk about etc… The usual Monday stuff ya know? Today? well today was slightly different. I had a rare Monday morning off so naturally I decided to go to Costco early, grab a coffee, do my shopping… I have never seen so many aggressive shoppers! Moving quick, cutting me off, not using proper grocery cart etiquette such as looking behind you when you start to back up, or attempting to merge into the forward moving traffic lane. It was as though I was trying to merge onto the 401 in rush hour!
Anyhow, lots of goodies on sale this week. All the L.E.D.’s are still going for another week (I believe this is the last too.) Oceans flaked white tune 6 paclks are on sale this week for $10.49 so that’s pretty sweet, less than 2 bucks a can for good quality tuna? yeah baby! if you read my blog 5 or 6 weeks ago you’ll know how I feel about tuna… It’s good. Zavidia whole bean coffee is on sale for $8.49… That is crazy… That’s 2 cups of coffee almost from anywhere. This is a whole bag! So, well I got one…. Probably get a few more this week. Though I need to replace my Bodum, somehow the glass on the spout broke (we found the renegade glass hiding under the dishwasher, don’t worry!) mmmmmm coffee! Tostitos salsa is also on the executive members sale, but lets be honest here… If you’re getting salsa you should be either making it fresh, or getting the Herdez brand… There is no substitute for great salsa. Mexican foods in general are meant to be fresh and bright! And fresh salsa doesn’t take long to make, chop onions, tomatoes, garlic (if you want, and I do) jalapenos (or Serrano) peppers (seed them to your heat preference) add freshly squeezed lime juice, cilantro, cumin, chili powder blitz it up and simmer for a bit until the color deepens and man-o-man…. really hard to beat, and it tastes like you went to an actual Mexican restaurant… Warm up some corn chips and crack a corona- Boom! paradise.
Speaking of paradise, the garden center was open today, and it was warm and sunny so it was packed! Promising situations folks, I’m very encouraged by the weather trends. Very, very encouraged.
I’m going to keep this short, I’ve got a birthday dinner at the Keg to go to… which I gotta say, I’ve never been to the Keg. Which is crazy I know given my love for Steak. So that being said, I’m going to clean up and get a move on, ribeyes and martinis await. I hope you all had a great week/weekend and are looking forward to the actual springtime!
Cheers until next week.
