Food: Asia and Food: Home Cookin' and japan24 Mar 2011 11:04 pm

Just some items I saw in the grocery store or market this week and used to springboard into meals. This is the way I shopped back home, but it is not really advisable here. Although having a smartphone makes it easier to look up recipes on the go, it can still be an expensive endeavour because I end up buying emotionally and spontaneously this way. So I am trying to be better about it. I am certain I blow at least half my paycheque on food, both eating in and out.

Market item: tomatoes and basil became…


Ina Garten’s Creamy Tomato Basil Soup with cheesy garlic toast. The hand blender was the best thing my mom could have bought us while she was visiting. The gift that keeps on giving!

 

Market item: cilantro and radishes on sale (UNHEARD OF!) became…

(Unidentified white fish) Tacos with lime-cilantro cream, cabbage, avocado, etc etc.
We may or may not have been made hungry by watching fish at the Churaumi Aquarium all night. The bluefin tuna were, how shall we say… inspiring.
