Kirkland Signature Lobster Bisque from Costco
Bowl of Kirkland Signature Lobster Bisque

My life got busy, and I haven't posted in a while, but I'm hoping to start up posting again. So this is a late review - I got this lobster bisque with my dad when it was on sale a couple months ago.

My dad ended up freezing the lobster bisque first because he didn't think we'd eat it fast enough, so this was warmed on the stove top from frozen when I had it. The preparation was pretty standard for a pre-made soup - just heat it up on the stove top until it's hot, stirring occasionally, or you can microwave it in a microwave-safe bowl, as well.

The consistency of the soup was good - not watery or super thick. I really liked the savory seafood taste. It wasn't overwhelming, but it did taste quite good. The lobster pieces were pretty small, and some pieces seemed a little dry. It also wasn't super filling, and I kept going back to get more. I haven't had much lobster bisque before, so I don't have much to compare it to, but it did taste really good overall.

Box of Bumble Bee Superfresh Seared Ahi Tuna
Sushi Quality Bumble Bee Superfresh Seared Ahi Tuna

My boyfriend and I just noticed Costco had this frozen "sushi quality" seared ahi tuna a few weeks ago. We both like raw ahi tuna in sushi so these seemed like a good find for us, and we snatched it up!

The package from Costco came in four sealed portions, and it was very easy to prepare: just take it out of the vacuum pack, and thaw it in the refrigerator! However, the instructions said to thaw it in the refrigerator for three hours, which we did... and it was still really frozen. In fact, it was still partially frozen after about 5-6 hours of sitting in the fridge... so we ended up thawing it for an extra hour in room temperature the first time. The next time we had it, we thawed it closer to eight hours in the refrigerator.

We were very happy to find this because it tasted deeelicious! It was seared on the outside with a nice seasoning: a good combination of pepper and soy sauce. It had an overall smooth, savory taste. It also didn't have a strong sour taste that ahi tuna sometimes has. One portion comes pre-sliced in about twelve small slices, which was good for the two of us to share as a side.

Unfortunately, when we went back to Costco last week, we weren't able to find it again.. but it looks like some Safeway stores in our area carry it.. so we will try finding it there next!

ox of Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes
Bob Evans Original Mashed Potatoes microwaved

We've seen these refrigerated Bob Evans mashed potatoes at Fry's (Kroger) for a while and decided to try some. They were pretty easy to warm up using the microwave instructions.

The mashed potatoes were whipped, smooth, and creamy... a very tasty side! They had a rich and buttery taste (or according to the ingredients: buttery and margarine-y) and were a perfect complement to the pork we grilled.

They may not be very healthy, but if you need some quick and easy buttered mashed potatoes, these taste delicious! :P
