As last Friday there weren’t very many new sales I was happy to see that there were indeed new sales today, including a few favorites and guilty pleasures… Though these days I feel like guilty pleasures are just pleasures, screw the “guilty” part let’s just love what we love right?!?!
Like the Pillsbury pizza pops (30 units $4.00 off) these were always a favorite snack of mine as a kid and are still one of those “guilty” pleasures of mine today.
I mean 4 minutes to mini-calzone mini-heaven?
It’s like those Jamaican pattys folks. Just a little baked pillow of comfort and happiness so for that I shall feel no shame!
Another (albeit healthier) snack favorite of mine is canned fish. So walking by the Gold Seal mackerel in olive oil ($3.90 off) I obviously needed to sneak one into my cart.
For me, a great snack to take to work and the have a pretty impressive shelf life. I’m pretty sure the ones I bought today don’t “expire” until 2025… So I’ve got some time.
Continuing on the fishy side of things two other sweet deals emerged today.
The Olivia Yellowfin tuna steaks and the Norwegian Fjord smoked salmon both popped up.
The Olivia Tuna steaks are something I usually like keep on hand because they are delicious and when they’re on sale for $12.99 it’s way too good to pass up.
The smoked Salmon is a little trickier though. I love smoked salmon of any kind, I mean toss it on some bread with cream cheese, capers and red onion? Yes please! Same situation except on a bagel, sure! Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon, that my friends is a brunch staple and one I’ve made hundreds of I’m sure. Or just fold it and place on a board with crackers, cheeses, dips, and other delicious meats and viola… An culinary (and Instagram) sensation.
This all being said not everyone enjoys that kind of smoked salmon, and I can see why. It’s a bit oily, and can be a bit too smokey so I understand that. But I still like it.
The garden centre is open and what’s not to love about it? It is as ever evolving as he season is, (rules and regulations included) so it’s pretty neat to see it change everytime I go through.
New flowers, new hanging baskets (one of which came home with me) and the staff have kept it very well organized. Again, big kudos to Costco and their staff for making this work and feel safe.
Oh and that hanging basket… It came home with me today.
It was too cold leave out tonight though, and you can see Dexter sneaking in to get some screen time this week.
Of course not to be out done by his older brother, Ewok decided to make his presence very apparent.
Always willing to sit in front of anything we’re doing and be the center of attention.
He’s obviously interested in why I’m not paying attention to him 100% based on his inclination to interfere with or more appropriately get involved with what I’m doing… At least tonight he sat in front of the flowers and not my keyboard, so I’ll call that a win for me.
And with that folks I’m going to say good night. Enjoy the sales, stay safe and…
“Stay Calm and Costco on!”

Since we are in the third wave of COVID-19 I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province.

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