No dried cherries at Costco Sad  I am going to check Sam's today if not the "seed store" across from Sam's.

dried cherries :s I am going to try this with cranberries and add white chocolate to it.  I have a recipe for Cranberry Orange that I add dark chocolate to, but I can see this one with white.  Going to check Costco first to see if they have dried cherries Smiling  

I love to bake ...

Are you telling me you have a costo in Mexico or do you mean when you get back to the states or Canada?

I am so very pleased to say we do have a Costco here.  It does not carry all the things I am used to having in Canada, but I am learning to adjust.  It does however hold the same rules ... if you see it, buy it as it may not be there tomorrow.

We purchased a lot of our bedding from Costco.  Well, the sheets and the fuzzy sex coverlets that we have at the end of the bed.

Today my PIC is out doing the shopping as I got to wait and home for guests who went out to see a nearby pyramid site, they were due back before 1 but as they were over an hour late she will be at Costco and I will be here.  I love going to Costco. Smiling

No Costco here in GJ either, because Colorado doesn't allow "chain" liquor stores, it's a no can do...Costco won't move here with the restriction on liquor sales. Our Sam's only sells 3.2 products. You can't buy wine at the grocery store for crying out loud!

Really?  We have 10 Costco warehouses on the eastern slope, plus there's one in Gypsum.  Next closest to you is SLC.

But do they sell liquor, besides 3.2? If so, then I don't know what the hold up is!

There is not one Costco on the western slope... We're hoping that will change soon...I was told by a local liquor store owner, that the licensing issues were preventing them from opening here, they can open one here, they just can't sell liquor, so they don't. Even the local Sam's has had to contract out to have a Liquor store adjoined to their building, they weren't allowed to have liquor "in" their store, because of the no chain liquor clause. They still aren't open yet.

I don't know what kind of liquor they sell.  I haven't been in a warehouse store in years.  Our liquor laws are finally, slowly, starting to change.  It brings tears to my eyes to go to other places and see wine in the grocery stores.

Perhaps that is why they are not here? I had no idea why not, but that makes sense, we have state run ABC stores for hard liquor sales.

We have a Sam's as well and 2 Walmarts.  Our city is over 1 million, not including those that are below the radar.

I would really have a hard time with out Costco.

Okay I have to ask y'all, are you mispelling biscuit on purpose or is it a typo?

We're just all used to seeing the "Bisquick" box that we've adopted a different spelling because of it!

Scones - don't over knead or they will become biscuits.  The key to true scones -a very light touch.
