Aldi and a Movie Review

6 posts in this topic

This Aldi joint is wearing thin on me.  I had to run an errand and ended up driving by Aldi and went in to find something for dinner.  We hadn't had pork chops for a while and as I was looking I noticed a 1/2 price sticker was on the package.  About 3 pounds of pork chops for about $7 was a deal enough for me but at 1/2 price since they expired Dec 31 I bought two packs.  Figured thin cut chops could work in Labs kraut thing or whatever.  They were terrible and I'd say a scam.  The first pack had 6 "chops" the two on top you could see looked like normal bone in chops, the bottom four looked like smallish shoulder steaks full of fat.  I fed the normal ones to my wife and daughter and I ate the other, worst pork chop I've ever had it was about 1/2 fat throughout.

Movie- saw the Hateful Eight last night.  I'd say a good to very good movie and since it's Western style it makes it more interesting.  Some bizarre but pretty funny "slapstick" moments in it, plenty of blood, and Bruce Dern (the bad guy who killed the Duke in The Cowboys) is in it.  It's pushing three hours long but only a couple slow moments in it but I have a short attention span.  My wife liked it too.  Hollywood in general dislikes it which is reason enough to see it, I can't remember why but people are offended by something.

Taratino calling cops murderers, and the sheer amount of violence in his movies turn me off.

Kurt Russel is in it Del and he's been going on about the leftys dumb stance on guns so that balances it out.  If you didn't watch any movies due to political reasons you'd only have Focus on the Family productions available.

Too much violence at Aldi's and Kurt Russell eating bad pork chops? Geez it's hard to keep up with you guys! ;) :D

Have not made it to an Aldi's yet. One in Owatonna not far from the East Wind Chinese buffet. Plenty of meat in my own freezer usually although I am intrigued by the mention of cheap liquor at Trader Joe's. Can go across the border and buy duty free stuff only so often. I see a couple westerns flicks advertised on the tube lately. Wife hates westerns so will have to wait until they show up on TV.

Only in a few cases does politics matter.  I won't watch Jane fonda.  Tarantino is too much into violence and gore for my taste. 

But, my previous post was speculation about the negative reviews. 

 

And to stay on topic :D I find Aldi stuff to be hit or miss.

    • Well another game 7 tomorrow night.  Sens have a tough go having to play in Pitt.  Hoping they can pull it off though.  That Karlsson has some wheels!  Even in the 3rd period last night he was fast.     If it is Preds and Pitt it is a toss up, probably go 7 games.  If it is Preds and Sens, I think Preds will take it in 5-6.  
    • I get your drift Rebel but this kid is not going looking for trouble. I think he just wants some ability to respond as a last resort. Sorta the same reason so many of us have carried for  years-  a last ditch option. And he is not going to walk around with it under his raincoat! Ha Ha! I guess I will have to take a look at some of these things just for the heck of it.  To me they have always appeared to be a plastic shooting appliance. I have no use for one and no interest in buying one. There are other options and I certainly do not consider them to be decent hunting weapons,  although I know the younger generation does.
    • I've got $100 that says it's the diaphragm, like I first said. Put yer hand under the carb input are where your line and diaphragm are. Pump that bulb hard. if you get a drop or two of gas leaking out there, you DO have a hole or tiny tear. Pumping it up makes it run better at high speed and /or brings up idle is the telltale sign.
    • Thanks for the input guys.  When the bulb is pumped up it does run fine at high RPM's after a little bit.  I can hear/feel it want to kick in all the way and then it goes fine.  So sometimes it hesitates just a little bit before jumping up to full RPM's.  Of course the boat is on the lift at the cabin so this weekend I will check the size of the lines under the cowl so I can buy some of those along with some other parts.  I will have to decide if I trailer it home or work on it up at the lake when I am there for a week in mid June.  Thanks again for some direction.
    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL
