I spent the afternoon at Farmer's Market today. I was just supposed to buy the Heavenly Beef Tapa for my Ate, for Ate Gina of Celina, for Jing and of course, for myself! I have to let Mona try it!
But I could not resist the temptations! I love Farmer's because it is the only market I know that is open all day! I am notoriously known at the Bel-Air Market for shopping very late, so sometimes all the vendors are surprised when I am there early.
The best time to go is at 1 p.m. because it is when all the fresh seafood are delivered.
I could not resist the Baby Pusit! I suddenly missed my Mom because this was one of her favorites.
I cooked it as soon as I got home. The "pusit" is as small as the nail on my thumb! I am saving it for Saturday because my Ate likes it.
I also bought mussels for my Dampa experiment.
My last attempt...... With Mornay Sauce and toasted garlic.
This was the result....
I think I will just stick to my original Baked Tahong recipe.
I asked Hermie to cook Fresh Corn Soup with Mussels and Chili Leaves.
I still cannot cook good Pork Chop Steak. I tried using the pressure cooker this time.
The meat and fat were tender! I still want Mariger to cook her version.
Of course..... I had to put "gasoline". I had my merienda at Taco Bell.
Taco Supreme with Sour Cream, Nachos Sprinkles and Mini Burrito. I only ate the filling and tried a little of the tortilla but it was too flour-y for me.
The rest of my loot:
2 whole chicken
Catfish for my catfish salad
and French Beans for Tita Cena.
Whew! So now.... My palms have some small blisters from carrying my loot but I do not mind. I love shopping at Farmer's. I wish I could go everyday.
