How do you find the frozen shimp (uncooked) from India at Costco, is that better than shimp from Chinese grocerry store like Nations fresh, ocean, which mostly from Thailand (and probably Vietnam), China?

Stopped at the Scarborough Costco Business Centre - was good to see they side had a couple of pallets of charcoal so I picked up 3 more bags.
The Oshawa Costco one had emptied in August.

Does anyone know if Costco sells distilled water? I was there today but I forgot to look.
I am thinking of using it in my steam mop and humidifier this year.
Thanks

I don't remember seeing it. For my steam mop, I buy the 4l jugs from Walmart or Food Basics. They are usually about $1.

How do you prepare pork belly, Is it just thick bacon?
No it's very different. Bacon is cured already. You can cure the pork belly to make bacon, or you can braise it/stew it to make it very tender. Koreans tend to like to cut it like thick bacon and grill it, but personally I don't like it like that. If I want it grilled I want it braised till tender then pressed and cooled, then sliced and grilled.

Tried Kirkland Pacific Bold dark roast coffee K-cups, new at my Costco.
Cost $36.99 for 110 pods.

Flavour was strong but not bitter. Will try adding a little water.

Rare find of a bottle or two of Dior, Chanel No 5 / Allure / Coco Mademoissle, My Burberry Black etc. I know it is a bit early, but mom bought them for Xmas stuffers.

Are the prices in store the same as the prices given on their website that says "delivered price"? Would hope it's cheaper when I stop at the store ...

For sure cheaper - the charcoal on the website is listed as 17.59$ (delivered) and in store it was 13.99.
I like that place because it is not as busy as the warden costco

Eggs, chorizo, mussels, tea, and...

Trying the frozen french onion soup for the first time. Surprisingly low calories (220) per serving, although it's a bit heavy on the sodium. For $8 I'll take the chance on it.

The chorizo is great. I cut them up into chunks and keep them in a ziploc in the freezer. Great for adding more flavour to anything you are cooking. As needed, pull one out and slice them frozen (very easy), then they're ready to fry in some olive oil before adding whatever it is you are cooking. Yesterday added a can of chickpeas, diced zucchini, raw onion. Just tossed in the hot oil and was so good.

Ever take it a bit farther and make chilaquiles.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!
