Box of Pierre Signatures Angus Burgers
Pierre Signatures Angus Cheeseburger

I tried a Pierre Signatures Angus Cheeseburger from Costco.

The burger tasted like a regular cheeseburger, maybe a bit fattier. I also found it salty, so after eating part of one with the cheese, I decided to try one without cheese. I tried a new burger and microwaved it without the cheese in it. The burger without the cheese wasn't as salty and tasted better to me.

The bun was also good and wasn't soft and mushy or too hard. However, after eating the majority of the burger, I let it sit out for a few minutes while I went to do something else, and when I came back to eat the rest, the bread had become a little rigid.

By the way, don't get your hopes up for microwavable lettuce. Unlike the front of the box, the actual burger doesn't come with any kind of lettuce. :-P

Chilean Sea Bass with Green Beans and French Baguette

For our Valentine's Day dinner, we cooked some frozen Chilean Sea Bass (aka Patagonian Toothfish) from AJ's and had it with French green beans and a French baguette from Trader Joe's.

How we cooked the 1 lb of Chilean Sea Bass:
We cooked the fish in a foil pan and also covered the pan with more foil. We cooked it on a 3-burner gas grill with the grill cover closed for about 8 minutes (4 minutes on each side). We put it on top of the middle burner which was off, while the left and right burners were on high. The sea bass was delicious. It was very soft, moist, and flaky. It was probably the tastiest fish I have ever had. It also had a strong fishy smell, which I love.

Trader Joe's French Green Beans (Haricot Vert):
We microwaved all 24 oz of the French green beans in a bowl on high for a total of 6 minutes (stirring it a little bit after 4 minutes). We also sprayed a little bit of PAM butter flavor spray on them. They came out tasting slightly sweet, crunchy, and delicious.

Trader Joe's French Baguette:
Unfortunately, the French baguette tasted more bland compared to other french breads/baguettes I have had. The texture of the bread was hard on the outside and nice and fluffy on the inside, but it basically tasted like Wonder Bread with a hard crust to me.

Box of Tiger Thai Udon Noodles
Tiger Thai Udon Noodles Components

I had some Tiger Thai Udon noodles from Costco as a snack.

Tiger Thai Udon Noodle Soup

The texture of the noodles was good, and they had the usual slippery and thick texture.

The soup was OK, and it tasted a little bit like fish sauce, but it was not great. I did not like the tempura shrimp crumbles in the soup at all. The next time I have some, I will definitely not put them in the soup. One thing I did like was the different little packets that everything comes in.
