~ Shopping ~ Kyrgyzstan ~ Ummmmmm-BELLLLA Day ~

Good 20ยบ morning. Again... burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

So early yesterday I went to the Republican HQ and Laraine and I stuffed about 120 envelopes, sealed, and put stamps on them. We also had a nice chat. Then I left for Costco but detoured to Harry and David.

They have been all over the news being in bankruptcy. Talked to one of their associates and they are going to be fine. Yeah! I picked up 3 pounds of discontinued coffees..... Moosemunch Peanut Butter Chocolate, Moosemunch regular, and

Decaf Hazlenut Praline Cinnamon .. all whole beans. Also got some Flaxseed and Multigrain chips, and some Garlic Smoked Mozzarella dip. Oh my. Good. (got a taste) And then I saw it..... Bob's Big Boy Blue Cheese Dressing!!!! OMG. I couldn't believe it. Of course, I bought one. Ahhhh the memories of a "Big Boy Combo, add avocado, and a side of blue cheese". Pure unadulterated heaven.

Then to Food 4 Less...

Picked up some stone ground buckwheat waffle mix and some stone ground red wheat waffle mix, some fat free all natural FUDGE BROWNIE MIX..Cappuccino flavor, and some fresh basil to infuse into vodka (another project), and some Valentine goodies for Tucker and Sami.  I also bought a whole box (8)of my favorite candies.... Ice Breakers cinnamon flavor.

Then to Costco....

Picked up a shrimp salad ($12.00 but it will last at least 2-3 meals)with a mayo dressing and basil, lettuce, and celery. Good! I got lobster ravioli, blueberries, baby spinach, and grape tomatoes. Got Brian some artichokes, doggie dental chews, and pig ears. Returned the chicken jerky that was giving Maggie bright yellow poops (made in China .. now so untrustworthy.)  I got PJ's sister, Mike, canned salmon that she likes and will drop it off at Brian's office that is near her house so she can pick it up when she passes by.
