Bottle of grape juice

I was not able to buy one bottle of grape juice in the mall that I often do the grocery shopping. Good thing there was a stock available in the other grocery store. I need to buy one because I will be making /cooking a calabash juice from its fruit and to make it more nutritious, I am adding a bottle of grape juice on it.  Grape juice is said to be rich in anti-oxidants and great for overall health and wellness. Its sweet taste is always appealing in any serving.

Cake slice

I was tempted the other day to taste this delicious slice of marble cake that I bought in a pastry bakeshop in the mall. It tastes deliciously soft and creamy. Mouth watering cake temptation that I could not resist. I seldom eat cakes and only on occasions but this one really satisfied my cravings last Thursday. I hope to buy one again when I have time to go to their shop in the mall.

Lunch for today

Weekend at home is special for me because it is the time wherein I can make home cook meals. I do the marketing early morning in the wet market. I am able to buy fresh fruits, vegetables and fish. I cook for lunch a broth meal - snapper fish, green leafy vegetables, slice young eggplant, tomatoes,onions and lemon grass. a simple dish that is full of essential nutrients. Great to cook as a comfort food especially on this rainy day.

Banana loaf for home

I like baked banana loaf from a  bakery shop and before going home I bought a piece of it. It is made of mashed fully ripe bananas It is often moist and sweet. The loaf can be sliced into thin pieces and can be eaten as snacks with juices, iced tea or a morning coffee. There are many kinds of baked banana loaf/cake available in the market and some bakers try to modify to capture the taste of the consumers. For me, banana cake is always one of my favorite pastries.

Kung Pao rice dinner

I always buy some groceries for home every Friday as part of my end of weekdays routine. After doing the groceries, I feel hungry and I thought of tasting this delicious Kung pao rice meal at a fast food in the mall. Chicken fillets topped with spicy sauce, chopped leeks and young corn. The steamed rice and the toppings filled my palate. A great must try for dinner. Yummy!

Canola oil purchase

I am health conscious this time and I want that the oil that I am using has good health benefits. Aside from olive oil, I find canola oil as a good oil because it contains the lowest levels of saturated fats. It is made of premium quality that is good for frying, sauteing or deep frying meats, sea foods, vegetables, poultry or pasta dishes. Frying using this oil is fun without the guilt of the side effects of using oil on dishes.

Sweet cupcakes

I bought a pack of purple yam cupcakes the other day. This sweet temptation is one of my favorite indulgence as snack or as a dessert. I used to buy assorted kinds like cheese, chocolate and mocha flavors but the grocery ran out of stocks of it.  The purple yam flavor is my choice so I bought a pack which has ten cupcakes in it. Great as snacks in the morning or afternoon with some flavored drinks or juices.

Crispy Salvaro

My sister gave this pack of salvaro as a present when she had a visit in Cebu City. Salvaro is made of thin crispy biscuits in oval shapes. It is slightly sweet with some creamy tastes of milk and sugar. I cant stop eating one after until I consumed all inside the pack. Good taste of some local delicacy that is worth a present any time.
