hungry, hungry hippos

In preparation for my tooth extraction today (what? yes, long story..), I went to the Asian market to stock up on food. Mom always served porridge when I wasn't feeling well and I planned on making a big 'ol pot of it. Enough for me to feast on for the next couple of days. It's been a really long time since I've gone to a Ranch 99 market. Over a year I think, which is a long time coming from someone that went there once a month just a few years ago. I don't cook much anymore, so there isn't a need for a specialty market when all I get is milk and eggs.

There were four items on my shopping list:
- green onions
- pickled cucumbers
- salted duck eggs
- dried, shredded pork

An hour later, I left the store with $70 worth of groceriesCollapse )
