I decided to do some grocery shopping today because I wanted to re-create some anime dishes that I drooled over the night previously. xD I promise I'll post about it later! I think it would be better suited for another topic.
The places I went to were Super Target, the local farmers market, and the local Asian food market.
Being the savvy shopper I am (lol), I decided to go to the farthest market first: the Asian food market, because I was planning on buying eggs at the farmer's market and didn't want them to spoil. I found a lot of cool stuff from there that I didn't know they had such as fried tofu and various udon noodles (I bought a packet btw). Unfortunately, I failed to find the sakura denbu I so desperately sought after. (T ^T)
I ended up buying:
- Nori sheets x2
- Udon noodle packet x1
- Ichiban ramen x6 (I gotta stash!)
- Pocky (always gotta get one of these)
- Green tea x3
- Panko (dried bread crumbs for deep frying) x2
- Kamaboko (fish cake)
- Frozen steamed cabbage buns
- Steamed rice in a leaf thing (for the father)
After that I stopped by Super Target and the farmer's market and got the rest of my ingredients which consisted of mostly vegetables and some body washes. I needed a new mascara so I ended up getting the Rimmel ScandalEyes Mascara and another vanity item, Rimmel's Glam Eyes Quad Shadow in 002 Smokey Brun. I couldn't resist as the colors were too tempting.
Aren't these colors pretty? It makes me want to create different looks with it and post them on this blog. ( ^ . ^ )
I ended up buying about $110 worth of items. Not too much damage seeing as I haven't gone grocery shopping once this month. My estimate of how much I would spend was also really close! Usually when I shop, I try not nitpick too much on the prices, as long as they aren't astronomically expensive. I do try to get the cheaper option though. xD
I'll be posting another topic later on the foods I made today. I created two dishes out of the ingredients I bought, not bad for a day of shopping!
