Thanks. I'd read about the 7.99 pizzas here, but always assumed that was frozen (although as I write that I realize it doesn't sound very cheap for frozen pizza). But the $1.50 dog and a drink sounded more like a food court.

They sell a bunch of frozen pizzas, but their regular costco brand are fresh 16" pizzas. You can also call and order them cooked for pickup, or just buy a cooked whole or a slice (which is actually two slices) at the food court.

We are buying a freezer to take advantage of the bargains. Upick fruit in summer and those portion controlled TV entrees for lunches.

Maybe this will help in some way reduce the waste in food that is so prevalent in the US.

Yes, Sams Club has great and huge roast chickens. They fill the container to overflowing sometimes.

Little Caesers's used to sell two fairly large pizzas for the price of one.
They ere quite adequate too. You didn't feel hungry after you ate them.
You probably wouldn't get sick from them either. And they defiantly had some nutritive value within them. You could eat them and you would not starve to death.
Don't remember the price, but certainly inexpensive. I haven't fed on one in years.

The grocery store chickens just look scrawny and pathetic by comparison (and overpriced). When I go to Sam's I go straight over to check the rotisserie 'status'. Frequently, there is a line of folks waiting just for the birds. They can't unload the giant rotisserie fast enough....the customers are patient, but antsy. I time my shopping to pick up two chickens after the rush has subsided. The guy there told me they sell approx 1700 chickens per week!

The last grocery store rotisserie chicken that I bought was so scrawny and small, it could have been an anorexic pidgeon!!! It was a chicken but seriously, it was SAD.

Those chickens at Sam's sound great.
