Dexter seems to know when there’s clean clothes on the bed, even if it’s just socks he finds it and gets his “cute” on.

He’s getting his “husky” on too, perhaps too much comfort food on his menu?

It is after all time for warm comforting foods, and if you haven’t used a Crock Pot before now is as good a time as any with the “new” Crock Pot Slow Cooker hitting the shelves.

It’s nice to be able to do a little bit of quick prep work, toss it in the Crock Pot, set a timer for 6 hours and let it do its thing! (meanwhile you can do everything else you need to do.) In the mean time the kitchen fills up with the mouth watering scent of dinner!

Speaking of great smelling food, baking bread always makes your kitchen smell amazing! So who wouldn’t want a compact bread maker on the go all the time?

Cuisinart bread maker

This Cuisinart bread maker says it does all of the things for you from mixing to baking, so all you need to do is measure your ingredients, set the program to whatever you need it to be and poof! Bread on demand! It’s got a timer feature as well so you can get everything mixed up at night and have freshly baked bread in the morning, who wouldn’t like that!

(check out a little more at this link!)

Speaking of Cuisinart it sounds like most of you aren’t big fans of the Burr grinder idea so I’ll steer clear of it! It’s true our little old one works great and has never had a problem soooo we’re sticking to it! Thank you for all of the comments about that as well, they always help out alot!

As much as I do like the Crock Pot and the bread maker I’m also a huge fan of cast iron pans (as most of you probably know by now) and Costco has brought back the Lodge 2 piece cast iron set.

And $59.99 is pretty reasonable for a set like this. Trust me, these will last longer than you will if taken care of properly and there is nothing quite as amazing as a meal cooked in a well seasoned cast iron pan. (in my opinion, that is)

So longtime reader Layla Bay was asking a question that perhaps some of you could help out with.

“Has anyone tried Costco same day delivery through Instacart? At least you can get perishables through that service although they add quite a few “delivery/service” fees. I’d appreciate any comments on this. With winter coming, I’m going to have to try a delivery service. Thanks for any input!”

Anyone who’d tried this or has any input on this subject please comment below! I’d be just as curious to hear about your experiences.

Time for me to head to bed folks, before I turn into a pumpkin. Though how seasonal would that be?

Yikes!!! I’ll skip turning into a pumpkin in that kitchen!!!

As we are IN the second wave of COVID-19 now and kids are back to school I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet by a long shot, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment so I would recommend that you read & follow the recommendations for your specific province and region. Information can be found at the following websites.

Ontario COVID-19 information

Quebec COVID-19 information

Newfoundland COVID-19 information

P.E.I. COVID-19 information

New Brunswick COVID-19 information

Nova Scotia COVID-19 information

So there you go, a little reading material for you.

Be kind, be safe and stay healthy!

  1. Thanks for all your updates and I really appreciate your reviews and comments on different products !Happy Thanksgiving:)

  2. Hi Everyone,

    RE: Instacart. Yes, I’ve used it several times for shopping Costco. I find it very convenient when I’m in need of supplies and don’t have time to actually shop. Plus, when you sign up you get a referral code. Whenever anyone uses your referral code upon signing up, you both get $10 off your order. This helps offset the delivery cost. Here is my referral code:

    TIP: Ask the delivery person for the receipt. The Instacart ordering system does not alter the prices for items on sale. If you’re ordering items on sale, you can dispute any overcharges and they will credit your account and often give you your next delivery for free. Hope this helps!

  3. I have used Instacart from Costco with a 2 hour delivery. They let you know how and when the individual is doing your shopping and you can communicate with them and add items as they shop. They will let you know if something is not available and ask if you want a substitute. It’s pretty easy. When you originally place your order they give you a total (plus tip for the individual). Once the shopping it done you get an updated total and you can adjust the tip.

  4. Thank you very much for your weekend update, much appreciated!

    Thanks also for sharing my request for info regarding the same day Costco delivery by Instacart. I would like to know more because with my painful hip it’s getting more and more difficult to shop in person. Stay safe and take care everyone! 🙂

  5. In reply to Layla’s question: I haven’t tried Instacart delivery from Costco. I like the idea of getting perishables without going in store so was excited when they announced this, but the markup for delivery is too high. It’s added to every item from what I see. E.g., I got WestEnd Cuisine Chicken Skewers in store 3 weeks ago for $12.99 (regular price) – they’re $15.59 through Instacart delivery; I got Fontaine Santé Traditional Hummus 2-pack for $6.99 and it’s $8.39 for delivery. Many businesses add a fee for delivery but adding it to each item makes it way too expensive in my opinion. I prefer Costco to some other stores but can’t afford that kind of markup so if I decide not to go into stores again (like I did for the first 4 months of the pandemic), I’ll go back to curbside pickup elsewhere (for a $3-5 fee), use Instacart with another retailer or use a local pick-up and delivery service – paying them $25 to shop for me would be less expensive for multi-item orders.

  6. Layla, if you are in the north Toronto area I would be happy to add your list onto mine. I don’t go every week though. A painful hip can’t be fun.

  7. A very big THANK YOU to Deanna Phillips, Angela and Susan for taking the time to type out your answers to my, very much appreciated!

    I will use your referral code Deanna so we can both get a credit.

    Great to know you can communicate with them while they shop for you.

    Susan, this is what I wanted to know, do they charge you the same prices as in the warehouse or is every item marked up, seems as though this is often the case unfortunately.
    I understand there is also a charge for heavy items then they automatically add a large tip.

    I’ll try it at least once and report back.

  8. Dear Bellringer,

    That is so very kind of you, thank you from the bottom of my heart <3

    I am located in Erin Mills, Mississauga, usually go to the Laird location.
