  1. Butter Crisis

    I do know that about Walmart `cause I've had the experience with other things, but when it involves my butter it's serious. I sort of panicked. Thanks for the reassurance and I'll try the President's Choice while I wait, tho I don't remember seeing that there either, today. I know the other Costco butter isn't going to do it for me... I have one frozen Lurpak in reserve; will try to eke it out. Sadly, I've never had the nerve to drive in Guad, so I rarely get there; busing isn't really an option if you're shopping much, especially groceries.
  2. Butter Crisis

    Was at Walmart today and there was no sign of my Lurpak butter - neither salted nor unsalted. This is a "must have" in my kitchen but Superlake stopped carrying it some time ago and I've been relying on Walmart. I'm devastated -; first they pulled the New Zealand Fern, and now if Lurpak vanishes I don't know what I'll do. Haven't found another brand that's comparable. Is there anyplace else I can try? Might Pancho have it in his new place?
  3. Need the grande version of a Styrofoam cooler, not the little ones I'm seeing that hold a couple of 6-packs. Does anyone know where I could buy one of the bigger ones?
  4. Find Wasp Spray

    They're wasps, no question. But out of curiosity, is there someone here who moves the bees? I had a wall nest maybe 15 years ago and the Bomberos came out all netted up and sprayed to kill them.
  5. Find Wasp Spray

    Is there a local outlet that carries the aerosol wasp killer that sprays from a distance? I think it was Raid I used to buy, with a conical fogger type spray nozzle, but I can't find it now.
  6. buy cow milk for kefir

    Agree. I use normal, pasturized leche entero and it works just fine. I'm convinced it's helped with a couple of health issues I've had over the past year or two.
  7. I'm in San Antonio and the garbage trucks have been really erratic since Christmas. Normally they come Monday, Wednesday and Friday but there was a 4 day gap again this week and things got kind of smelly. Not to mention the street dogs wanting to strew everything in the road when you put bags out, hoping for a truck. Need to know when to expect the guys because they can't just sit there for hours. I read that there's a private contractor now but wasn't clear if that's for all areas or when they might turn up. Anyone?
  8. Superlake

    Superlake stocks things that are vital to my existence, products that simply aren't available anywhere else, not even in Guad or P.V. I know it impresses a lot of the Tapatios when they visit. I don't want it to change or I might have to move! Pancho's done a terrific job of keeping up with trends and fulfilling requests over the years and I'm sure it hasn't been easy.
  9. Canadian butter tarts

    Another suggestion, if you've got a good, reliable pastry recipe for the tarts, you might sell ready-made shells, as some of us just aren't talented that way. My last effort was all over me, the floor, the ceiling and the cat.
  10. Casa de Musica

    Anyone tried this new San Antonio restaurant on La Paz, just around the corner below Adelita's?
  11. Reusable ice cubes

    I use the freezie pops you can buy at the tiangui. You can reuse a few times and, if they do leak, it's nothing I'd worry about ingesting. Just adds a slightly different flavour.
  12. The last couple of days the house has been invaded by little black ants and they're everywhere! Some are no bigger than specks but there's a lot of them roaming over the tile floors, especially at night. They're ignoring my ant baits (Terro liquid) and I don't know what to do. For health reasons, I'm worried about spraying or laying down powder and don't want the cat ingesting toxins either; she would pick up the chemicals on her paws. Please, does anyone have a solution or Is there a professional I could call in to fix this (preferably English-speaking)? Can't stand it much longer...
  13. Sorry - been here 18 years, full-time, and I'm still not used to it so probably won't happen. II try to keep my own list current but these things still happen and I get frustrated, especially when the back-up plan goes up in smoke as well. Just venting a little, I guess; everyone's got a pet peeve or two.
  14. Casa Domenech

    Just been reading (belatedly) about Casa Domenech - hadn't heard about it and am wondering if they're still in business?
  15. It's so hard to know who's open when - couldn't there be one thread where local restaurants just post their hours or a number you could call to check? Went to have lunch today and one place on my list didn't open until 2 and the other had no hours posted and didn't appear to be planning to open at all today. Ended up with a very disappointing meal in a third restaurant nearby - no need to say where. Just frustrating for those of us who don't eat out a lot and really look forward to something special when we do...
