I usually do my grocery shopping on Mondays. It used to be Saturdays but I got fed up with the crowd and the long line in the check out counter. It’s so much waste of time.
So, anyway when I went to the grocery this morning (Rustan’s Grocery, Ayala Ave. branch) I found so many new products made in Italy that just arrived last week (according to Arlene, one of the supervisors). I went crazy!
First they had all kinds of Risottos.
Then they had Paella and black rice.
And all sorts of flavored sea salts!
And flavored garlic.
And lots of assorted pastas!
I picked up the seafood risotto, the paella marinara & the flavored garlic.
I cooked the seafood Risotto for dinner tonight and it was sooooo yummy. If I should say so myself! Altho’ I added some fresh shrimps (it came with dried shrimps). I will try the paella tomorrow! I didn’t get any of the sea salts anymore cos I still have a big bottle of the pink Himalayan sea salt and besides it was kinda pricey. It was P700+ per pack!
The pastas were so overwhelming that I didn’t buy any. Maybe some other time when I am more calm. LOL!
