I like to spend time with my Chinese friends, even more now that we only have a short time left here. One thing I have always wanted to do is grocery shop with them. What do they buy? Where do they buy it? Haha, even saying this makes ME smile because whenever David & I are grocery shopping, many Chinese people are always looking in our cart to see what we buy for food. Sometimes I am a little embarrassed especially if he’s stocking up on coke and cookies or coffee. Most Chinese carts are full of fresh ingredients. They tend to shop every day or every other day for fresh ingredients to cook with.
So today, Li Dan Yao took me grocery shopping! I really wish I had this on video because it must have looked quite funny. We went to an authentic Chinese market and everything is SUPER FRESH!!! Spices, herbs, veggies, fruit, meat, seafood, eggs…even silkworms(no we didn’t buy any of those). She knew exactly what she wanted. She picked it out, I paid for it, and Wei Quan carried the bags!!!! Haha, yes I paid for everything BECAUSE we were actually shopping for me today!!! More about this tomorrow…
And before I went shopping,Tim hosted lunch at his place today for some of the gang. We enjoyed AMAZING pizza and garlic fingers. Jan. you would be so proud of your chef husband. Everyone was so impressed!!! Your apartment smelled like a pizzeria today and it tasted even better.
A great Saturday in Shenyang!
