St. Patrick's Day - Costco Corned Beef Brisket

Mar
17

Top of the morning to you.

This is my 4th year to celebrate St. Patrick's Day by making corned beef brisket. Costco always stock Bill Bailey's Corned Beef Brisket late February to beginning of March.

It's very simple to make.  I put the meat, cabbage, and water in a slow cooker. I set my slow cooker to low.  Then I go to work and come back.  Dinner is ready when I come back home (10-12 hours).  I still have to make mashed potato.

I like to eat my corned beef brisket with the juice.  I don't know how authentic this is, but I like it.

Costco Shopping - January 5, 2017

Happy new year

It was my first Costco shopping of 2017.  I didn't buy anything special.  Coupons saved $29.40.  Protein bars are for work.  Apples and green blends are for juicing.  I freeze naan bread which they will last about six months.  I am not quite sure if Focus Factor works.  But, at the same time, I am afraid to get off it.

Keeping Costco Spinach Fresh - Rubbermaid Containers

Dec
24

Mery Christmas!

I still live alone.  And I still buy food in bulk at Costco. 

I can make a big bag of Costco spinach to last solid 7 days.  I keep them crispy fresh until I finish the whole bag.  Recently I improved my vegetable storage system with a new set of 3 Rubbermaid containers at Costco.  I am not sure if they are still available at Costco. They were $15 or less for 3 containers (6 pieces).  That's a pretty good price.  They will pay for themselves in a few month.

For a large bag of Costco spinach, I need all three containers.  I put 2 sheets of paper towels at the bottom of each containers.  This system keeps my Costco spinach (& other vegetables) last a lot longer.

This saves my time and money - and elevate my life style.

Merry Christmas, everyone.  Now I get back to massive eating.

Costco super busy - before Christmas

Dec
21

I went to costco on my lunch time.  I went after 1PM to avoid lunch crowd.  It's usually pretty slow after 1PM.

But, today was a mad-house.  The parking lot was full, and there were cars on every lane.

So, I came back to work.  I shall try again after work.  I don't mind long line.  I just couldn't spend too much time on my lunch time.

Just letting you know.  It's that time when Costco is super busy.

Merry Christmas.

Visiting Long Island, NY - And Costco

Dec
11

I visited Long Island, New York.  Went to Costco, too, of course.  Below is my show and tell.

Day 1 (Thursday)

I had almost no sleep.  I woke up at 1AM, took a shower, and drove to LAX by 4:00AM.  I flew to Baltimore first to change plane.  Baltimore was absolutely beautiful looking down from the sky.  Baltimore airport was beautiful and inviting.  I arrived at Long Island past 5PM.

Day 2 (Friday)

We woke up at 3am (12AM in California time).  At 6AM we took a ferry ride to Connecticut.  We went to Stamford to watch Maury Show!!   Some of you know how much I enjoy Maury Show.  It was a crazy good time. 

After Maury Show, we drove to Long Island (no ferry. we drove around) - I didn't visit New York City.  I was not interested in visiting a big city. Also I was very tired.

Day 3 (Saturday)

We started the morning at Dunkin Donuts - then checked out garage sales.  The air was cold.  I saw ice on lawns. I found some silver jewelry and some vintage Maxwell House coffee mugs.

Then we went to Costco.  The first thing I've noticed was recycle kiosks by the front entrance (picture below).  I didn't buy anything at Costco.  I just walked around and enjoyed looking at Christmas items on display.

We went to a fish and chips place for dinner.

Day 4 (Saturday)

I ate a bagle for breakfast and a slice of New York pizza for lunch.  4 days flew by fast.  I had so much fun.  I got dropped off at Long Island airport to start my journey back home. By the way, I have never seen an airport that empty.  (see picture)

End

It was an amazing experience.  Now I am waiting to see myself on Maury Show.  You ARE the father~!! Hahaha.

Auto buying program

Dec
06
Body: 

I tried the auto program and it was a scam. Dealer quoted $5000 discount on a new corvette versus 

$12,000 to $16,000 discount quoted by other dealers on same vehicle.

I asked why they were so high and they claimed Costco buyers did not qualify for

other discounts. Made no sense. Bought at the other dealer. Beware.

Thanksgiving Turkey 2016

Dec
02

This was my 7th straight year I baked Thanksgiving turkey alone.  Just like last year, a friend dropped by for a short time.  But, I was home alone in most part. I live stress free life. I was invited to a couple of places. But, I didn't want to drive 2 hours to see my family .  And I didn't want to go where I was not able to truly relax.  A lot of people talk about holidays and stress.  I have absolutely no stress.

First, I baked the turkey upside down for an hour.  Then I flipped the turkey and baked until it was done.  I like this technique.  I think it was the best turkey I have ever made.  I can't wait for the next Thanksgiving.

Red Lobster buicuits (from Costco) were  very good.  Turkey, stuffing, organic cranberry sauce, and turkey baking racks were also from Costco.
