Return Return Return is all that's going through my mind today as I remember all the stuff I have to send back to Amazon. I totally and completely LOVE their two day delivery. Sadly, it takes seven days or MORE to get that refund from the dumb things I purchase.
The latest and greatest is egg bite molds. Those are the things Starbucks sells for a small fortune. They are great for breakfast, or so I hear. With my newest Instant Pot, I should be able to cook at least a dozen at a time.
I was quite taken aback when I received them with a huge sticker on top ... MADE IN CHINA. I probably could have gotten past that part, except they were so small, you couldn't even crack an egg into the mold without it running over. Then there's the cancer I'm sure to get down the road from using them, because who knows what they are really made of. I don't have time for this .... Return Return Return.
As I sat by the fireplace one morning, my feet were so cold I decided a nice pair of cushy slippers would be wonderful. The Amazon bug bit me again. It's Christmas, right ... so they were on sale. What could be better?
I'll tell you ... any other pair would probably have been better. They were perfect in length, but half the width of my foot. RATS!!! Return return return! Now I have to make a SECOND trip to the UPS Store to send them back.
With all the talk about SELECT meat, I forgot to let you know how that $5.99 prime hamburger turned out. I made a meatloaf with it, baked in the oven for 40 minutes. It was the best meatloaf I've had in ages!! OH MY GOSH!! It actually had the taste and texture of meat in year's past.
You can bet I'll be buying more of THIS in the future, mostly because I really can't afford the $12-a-pound fillet mignon which is in the SELECT section, so probably isn't worth the price anyway. The best part? I didn't have to head out to my cemetery and dig a hole for the two cups of grease that usually result from baking. That's a big WIN in my book.
I'm off to Costco this morning. I'm going to ask them where THEIR meat comes from and what grade they sell. This should be fun!!
