We love going to the grocery.
It’s a family thing for us three (Tina, Gabby & I).
We prefer to buy fruits & veggies, meat & fish from the supermarket
than in public talipapa simply for CONVENIENCE.
Although most goods at the supermarket are bit pricey,
it’s compensated with airconditioning, no-mud, no-sweaty vendors,
& most of all, no flying & crawling insects, aww!!!
Convenience that is.
We like going to Landmark, Trinoma in Quezon City for grocery,
Also in Rustan’s & Shopewise in Araneta Center,
and certainly not the least in our list, we also prefer to buy our stuffs from
SM supermarkets. We tried the newly renovated SM Cubao,
the one in Makati, Hypermart near Tiendesitas, &
the newest branch of SM in Marikina near Riverbanks
several times already.
For our HOLY WEEK PORKLESS MEALS,
my wife wanted to do our grocery shopping in SM Marikina.
So we did yesterday…
Aren’t those veggies wrapped in elastics appear crisp, fresh & “clean” to you?
My wife Tina holding her grocery list with my son Gabby who made the grocery cart his tsubibo for the moment…
Tina plans to make fried shanghai rolls from these tilapia
with sweet chili & sweet & sour dips.
She bought 2.6 kilos & had them filleted at the fish station for FREE.
Another personal favorite seafood aside from SCALLOPS & MUSSELLS
are TIGER PRAWNS & FISH BELLY (tuna or salmon)…
I just like them grilled or fried on ANCHOR BUTTER,
with honey lemon sauce perhaps, sarap!
Prawns are also delicious in sour soup cooked with veggies & lots of tomatoes
SINIGANG NA HIPON for us pinoys, always a hit, Holy week or not…
It’s always expected here in Manila for prices of seafoods & veggies from
both palengke (public markets) & supermarkets to to sky-rocket during Holy Week.
It would be a great miracle from the good heavens when opposite happens.
We bought kilo of Norweigian SQUID (they did not come from Europe, eh?)
and had it cooked in soysauce, ADOBONG PUSIT for lunch!
GULAMAN at SAGO…
Gelatin & tapioca served with some vanilla &/or banana flavor,
chilled & sweetened in ice cold-water are cheap coolers this summer.
Till our next family bonding…
