Default Costco finds

It's funny, the stuff you find at Costco. Some of it I wish
I'd never found.

Recently that means Triple Dipped Malted Milk balls. Ron knows
I'm a sucker for the Whoppers or the robin eggs Easter candy,
so he snagged me a sample. Damn those samples. I doubt they will
be a permanent product but I will be grabbing another bag or two
while they're around. Fie on you, Costco buyers!

I'm not what you'd call a fan of pancakes. I can take them or leave
them, mostly leave. Never mind buy a mix. But these Kodiak Cakes
grabbed my attention, whole wheat power cakes. That doesn't sound
at all appealing as I type this. But DAYum are they good. I mean,
don't run out and get a box on my say so, but they have such a nice
flavor and texture, also they call them flapjacks, I love having
those once in a while.

I don't eat pancakes often, but I do enjoy a good buttermilk pancake
made with Southern flour (Martha White, White Lily). I jes recently
noticed our local sprmkt now carries White Lily flour (w00t!). I hope to
compare White Lily to the organic pastry flour I get from my health
food store. Gotta buy some real maple surple, first.

I love pancakes but rarely make them. why?
Anyway, just use plain all-purpose flour and either
real maple syrup or even Log Cabin. I have both and I like both.

White Lily seems like the go to brand that people swear by.

I usta buy Martha White, as I though both brands were made with soft
winter wheat. I'm now having problems finding which flour Martha
White uses, despite Smuckers owning both brands. White Lily seems to
have taken the "organic" route. It advertises "non-GMO" AND soft red
winter wheat, so lucky me!

> What, no Log Cabin??


Log Cabin hasn't sold a real maple syrup in yrs, if ever. Their
"Natural" maple syrup is bogus. OTOH, they are one of the few brands
that you can buy which labels their product as HFCS-free, allegedly a
first fer USA made foods. I have an unopened bottle (non-HFCS) of Log
Cabin Syrup left over from when I usta fix Mom's breaky. It'll do
until I find some real maple syrup.

BTW, products that are labeled as "natural" are basically trying to
rip you off. It's the latest buzz word on grocer's shelves, matched
only by the currently ubiquitous, "gluten-free" nonsense. If
something is labeled as "natural", it is probably not even remotely
organic. In fact, the FDA doesn't even have an official definition
for the word, "natural", but you now see it offered by everyone.

Jes an FYI ....poison hemlock and asbestos are fully 100% natural.

I never would have found those, I never look there. I still
probably wouldn't have it is wasn't for those samples. Funny
thing is, I never stop for the samples, either.

I guess they're good? Meatballs are a make yourself product here.
All part of the sauce making process.

jugs of shampoo in twin packs.

Poison hemlock can be organically grown. Organic is no
guarantee of safety, either.
