I love grocery shopping. I used to go with my son who enjoys the same things. We loved to peruse the aisles looking for new and different items. We shopped in ethnic stores as often as .
One of our joys was picking up something with a label we could not read. We've found many wonderful foods that way. I love steamy buns I get in the frozen foods section, and Siriachi in the red bottle with the rooster and so do several of my other family members.
I've learned how to use new ingredients to make our meals more interesting. My pantry is full of bottles and cans with unreadable labels. Thank goodness the ingredients are listed in English. Last night I made a stir-fry for myself. I used only half the meat in the package and tons of veggies. The sauce was an item from my pantry. I have no idea what it is because I can only read the ingredients, but the sauce was wonderful. I hope I can duplicate it later.
Experiences such as this make our explorations more fun and definitely productive. Try something new each week. Last week it was kohlrabi bulbs for me. I love them and wonder where they have been all my life. I wonder what I will try this week?
