Saturday. Market day. Before we hit the markets we had a look in one of the little Asian shops on High St. I was specifically looking for red miso paste to make smokey miso tofu from Vegan Yum Yum. I couldn't find red miso paste but I made it anyway, and it turned out yummy to eat on its own and I'm looking forward to eating it tomorrow in a sandwich or wrap. Here's what it looked like before I put it in the oven.
Anyways, I found some very INTERESTING stuff at this shop! A whole fridge full of vegetarian/vegan foods. Very exciting!
We picked up:
(so cheap $2.20 for 750g!)
as well as a few other things. And I didn't even get upstairs!
I managed to pick up a bunch of basil at the markets for $1 as YM has been asking for it for AGES!!! He wanted Tweenie to make the basil pesto she has been raving about ever since she made it at school.
I got a whole box of apples again and I sat down in front of a movie to peel them with a knife, chop them and ended up stewing them to make apple sauce.
I got a heap of stuff at the markets today. We got home and I felt energetic so I defrosted both my upright freezer and the top freezer of my fridge/freezer (wow!), cleaned out the fridge to fit in all the new stock and then cut, washed, trimmed all the veges ready for cooking and eating.
