lemon granita

My name is Josh and I’m addicted to Costco. I love the variety, the quality of their products, their no-questions-asked return policy, and of course the prices (don’t worry, I won’t try to convert you).

That week, they were showing a Master Pancake (where three comedians mock the movie) of Footloose. So great and funny!
