Great lunch today

A big tasty "Polish"sausage, nice soft bun with sesame seeds, good selection of toppings including pretty good sauerkraut. All you can drink soda fountain.
Only $1.50
Really hit the spot and ideal since my mouth was still half frozen from the prior tooth extraction.

    I was actually pretty happy when Costco brought the polish sausages back. They were better than the hot dogs. For $1.50, if I'm already at Costco at lunch time, it's not a bad choice.

      I thought he was joking that the sausage was from Costco.

        Me too!!! Who eats at Costco unless there isn't another thing to eat for miles and miles???

          With the way they locate Costcos, that's kind of true ;)

          But the answer to that question is, at least for me, 'people who are already at Costco'. If I've got frozen food in my cart, I don't want to go off looking for other places to eat on the way home, so I eat at Costco.

          The Pie Commission is not terribly far from the Queensway Costco, though, so that's one decent local option.

            Anyone who loves Costco loves eating there! Hard to resist a dog after shopping. The fries are great too. Better than any fast food fries I've ever had.

              I don't have the Costco love. Two person family that eats out a lot and lives in a loft with no closets. Not to mention I hate driving to make purchases!

                Not really a COSTCO person (Family size doesn't make much sense for a family of one) but my Dad RAVES about some chicken turnover thing that they sell at COSTCO in Florida where he lives. Do they have them here in Canada? Has anyone had one? Are they really that good? (I am skeptical - although my Dad generally knows good food)

                  I admit, I'm iffy on renewing my Costco membership. I'm just one person, so a lot of their products simply don't make sense for me.

                  But their parmigiano reggiano is so much cheaper that I figure I almost pay the fee just by buying a couple large bricks of that every year.

                    Do you have any friends who have memberships? It might be more worthwhile to go through them, or to split a membership with someone.

                    I don't do the Coscto thing either. I don't need 3 metric tonnes of mayo in a single jar.

                      As a small family, I was super iffy on a costco membership too till I realized they had everyday things at much lower cost that helped justify the membership. The winter tires I bought through them covered the membership cost plus more!

                      I do like how their lactose milk is only in 2 L amounts and much more affordable than anywhere else. Same goes for their greek yogurt (plain), organic spinach, all purpose flour, and kirkland brand items like frozen shrimp and olive oil.

                      I will admit though, there are often times where the snack aisle is just deadly and I should consider running out of the area or I'd bring back 1 kg of dark chocolate truffles :)

                  Nope. Regular price.
                  Also, I forgot to mention. Free hors d'oevres and dessert.
