  • I am a bit peckish - I know what I will do, I'll check out Food and Beverage section, 12am should be thinking of bed but I am only thinking about that soup now. The others look delicious as well but the soup is saying "Eat Me".

  • I like this. I buy a rotisserie chicken EVERY week at Costco. I'm kind of sick of it. I'll try it :)
