Influence on what I cook

Posted by Dawn at Thursday, July 16, 2009
I go to Giant Hypermart for supermarketing every Saturday and I do find comfort in the familarity and the space. There was once when I went to Sheng Siong hypermart in Bedok with my mum-in-law and ended up buying very little because I was just not used to the layout and how cramped it was. So it wasnt a pleasant trip at all.

Anyway, as usual, I would always take a look at the newspapers on Thursday as I look out for the sale items in Giant. Then I would start making a list. If there's like a whole big fish promotion, I would make sure I reach the hypermart exactly at 8am to see the automatic gates being lifted up as it takes a while for the fish guy to clean up the fish and cut it to your liking.

I hate queues and crowd.

This week, they had a promotion on this huge ocean trout fish! (which is similar to salmon). I bought a 3 plus kg fish for about $38! Its very worth it as I could eat the fish for about 4-5 different meals as I use the meat for pan fry and the bones for soup. So in a way, Giant decides what I cook for the week as its dependant on the promotional items.

So tonight, I prepared pan fried ocean trout with baked potatoes and stir fry veggies.

Tonight is also the night where Caleb opened his birthday present which I bought for him. I allowed him to open tonight because tomorrow is his birthday and I would only come back in the afternoon, after my work. So I felt if he opened it tonight, he could play with it in the morning.

There's both of my kids gathering together for the 'opening ceremony' of the toy!
