    Pizza at Costco can be made vegetarian, if you order a whole pizza. Until very recently, you could order a sausage or pepperoni pizza, but now sausage is eliminated. Sausage with pepperoni is still available as a combo.

    pepperoni pizza = OK
    sausage pizza = NO
    sausage with pepperoni = OK

    I seem to recall they often can and will make the pizza's to order so you are saying that they will refuse to make just a sausage pizza?

    I mean, the sausage is right there waiting to be joined with pepperoni.

    They have a list of what they will do and sausage-only is no longer an option. You are welcome to test this for yourself and advise.

    They do make them to order and the staff is usually accommodating but they have a set menu they can't veer from. Frustrating when you can plainly see them placing ingredients, but I guess they don't want to open the door to 100 variations.

    Costco's sheetcakes once allowed three cake choices: vanilla, chocolate and carrot cake. There were multiple fillings. Now it is chocolate and vanilla cake with either chocolate or vanilla mousse filling and frosting. I can only guess orders were being mixed with the old system.

    My favorite sheet cake combo once was: carrot cake, cream cheese icing and apricot filling.

    It sounds like they went from 4 variations to 3?

    I think they do cheese, veggie, sausage/pepp, pepperoni. In any case, it's my "when there's nothing else" option. This city has so much amazing pizza we're down to about 2x/year.

    Costco is selling madeleines in a plastic box individually wrapped. They are really good. Maybe not as good as home made, but almost. They freeze well too.

    Spanish Serrano Ham at the Salem Oregon Costco for $99.99 with knife and holding rack. Last year a couple of Spanish women visiting Oregon bought 4 of them. Actually took all that were on the shelf.

    Got the picture to post!

    Thanks Cathy, I tried to edit the post to add the picture and I get this error "The image file you tried to attach is invalid." It is a jpg I'm trying to upload. Is there a size limit?

    I've found I have to downsize my photos. Not sure what the software limit is, but when I go to 600 px or so across, the photos upload well.

    I saw that ham a couple of days ago at the Costco in Mettawa.

    They also sell a 15.4 Iberico ham for $550 with a stand and knife.

    Wow, for 1 pound more the price jumped from $100 to $550. Amazing. Based on the price per pound on the sign, ours here in Salem are 14.4 pounds.

    Iberico is not the same as Serrano.
    Serrano is a Mercedes, Iberico is the Maybach.

    I didn't know that. This place is always an education for me. Of course, I probably couldn't tell the difference between the two.

    I'll now go back to lurking.

    Yes, when I was first introduced to bellota a slice was placed in my palm so I could experience it melting just from my body heat. Pricey but oh so worth it.
