TB can pick up my dirt and pots as he needs some items to finish the fence - the contractor raised it, but left holes on the bottom that even Violet could get under if she wanted to! We have decided we are not going to get him back again, it is not worth the trouble. We are also not going to recommend him to anyone either!
OK, so I am not a doctor (as they say in the adverts) but do be careful with the codeine cough syrup. Codeine can upset your digestion and "bung you up" (from one who knows!)

Hope the bronchitis is seen off sharpish

We managed to get the things Shrek needed and a lot more. I have a batch of asparagus to roast and a huge batch of strawberries to hull, slice, sugar and eat. Shrek bought huge white mushrooms to make stuffed mushrooms.

They had a different brand today made with pork, "Ajinomoto" Japanese style. Picked them up to try as they are in 5 separate enclosed trays, so no open bag to put in the freezer.

Costco is close enough I don't have to make huge purchases to make it worthwhile. I know, I'm spoiled

I got out of there the other week with a receipt for $4.49...it was the day I was supposed to pick up a new prescription and I was so upset it wasn't there (hadn't been faxed) that I didn't bother to look around. I got a package of alcohol swabs.

The Sourdough Bread, Italian Bread, Multigrain and Rosemary/Olive Oil breads are part of a Road Show going on and today was the last day they would have it. I got 2 loaves of the sordough and two rosemary. Haven't had the rosemary, yet!

We are spoiled too. Our Costco is within walking distance (for any person who can walk for 10 - 15 minutes, unlike me). It actually takes a little longer to drive because there is no direct access from our direction. You have to go around and come in the back way.

I usually make a moderate purchase once a week alternating things that we need, except the produce which I buy every week. The reason we did a $400+ shop yesterday was we bought new phones, and sundry items. We picked up a lot of meat which always costs more.

Our Costco is next to our supermarket. We stop in a couple of times a month to stock up on various items.

You mean no Ling Ling pot stickers? Ajiinomoto is a big company that uses MSG a lot---- does that mean this new brand has MSG in it?

I couldn't find any mention of MSG on the Ajiinomoto site (nutrition info). Does the package mention MSG or perhaps it's just in the sauce.

Almost all of them. The only ones that will be going into the ground are the 4 marigolds, the rest are going into larger pots. It will take me a while, because at least 10 of my indoor house plants need re-potted too.
Oy.

My mistake, they have the Ling Ling AND the Ajinomoto. As for MSG, no idea, I don't look because I don't have a sensitivity to it. I leave it out of my Japanese recipes, but don't avoid it.

I would look on the box, but I took it out to the dumpster already and I'm not Dumpster Diving in the rain
