Tonight, my tutoring session ended early, so I popped over to the grocery store.
I usually go to Whole Foods, not because I am a pretentious hippie, but because it is usually pretty quiet. The workers are super nice and friendly and know things about food, like what kind of cheese to buy for a picky eater.
But tonight, I happened upon the Central Market and decided to try it out. I’ll be going back! It’s like Whole Foods and a regular grocery store had a huge baby. A very huge, meandering baby.
I didn’t buy this saki, because it’s alcoholic (right?) and I consume very little alcohol. I had a martini last Friday and that will probably be the only alcohol I drink this month.
But isn’t this bottle super gorgeous?
I also didn’t buy any caviar aka roe aka fish eggs, but I just had to photograph it because it is so beautiful. Look at all those tiny little would be fishes!
I never go into a store without looking at the baked goods. I didn’t buy anything sweet; I just admired the artistry of the bakers and the gorgeous arrangements and displays.
I also didn’t buy any teas because I have SO MUCH TEA (see post from two days ago.) I almost wanted to donate some of my tea so I had a legit reason to buy more. Ah! I’m a tea hoarder!
I liked the names of these teas.
I have never seen a red pear or dragonfruit in real life. How delightful! And apparently you can buy a bundle of mushrooms. Fascinating!
What I Actually Bought
Sooo…I bought a random assortment of things.
I bought some of the most gorgeous scallops I’ve ever seen and will cook them tomorrow for lunch. I almost can’t wait. I also bought salmon and two peaches; the other things are shown clearly in the photos. I bought a bath bomb for $7. I can’t eat it, but it’ll be such a lovely thing to experience when I use it.
I hope your day was full of some kind of low key adventure.
If it was , leave me a comment below and tell me about it.
Until tomorrow my friends…
