First days of fall and living dangerously
October 5, 2016
Our grocery cart was pretty empty this weekend. We’ve decided to live dangerously for a change. So here’s our two loaves of multigrain bread, a tray of chicken tenderloins, a bag of those fat, juicy shrimps we used to cook that delicious shrimp scampi pasta, and a box of Bartlett pears.
Seems like the price of strawberries is holding steadier than the exchange rate. So I guess we’re moving from a week of intense watermelon juicing to a week of strawberry-ing and grape-ing. Our goal is to eat as much of these amazing grapes before the season ends and so far, we seem to be doing grape *hick*!
Remember I said we’d go back and have that Vermicelli Bowl which I enjoyed so much. Well, we did. This time, we ordered two Beansprout Vermicelli Bowls, one with the works and the other with only grilled pork. They were delicious but could use way less beansprouts and more noodles. We think we might’ve stuffed ourselves and still had leftovers to take home. Are we such small eaters and didn’t know it?
Fall is making its presence felt but we’re still clinging on to summer. The sun is still unrelenting but temps are down and the wind is picking up. Still I refuse to give up my summer uniform – just yet! On grocery morning, I went out in my cap sleeves and shorts and it was like stepping out into nature’s air-conditioning with the fan blowing. This morning, it was 45F (8C) outside when I threw the windows open. Whoosh, that cold refreshing air. How delicious is this kind of weather.
