Tomato Mushroom Prawns

Monday, October 5, 2009
























 It was during our monthly grocery shopping at the big supermarket, which is a short drive away, that i discovered these babies. They look fat and chubby and were going at a cheap price.

Many aunties were crowding the counter, taking advantage of the sale, with me among them. Sis was teasing me being the odd one out as i was the only young female in the mist of chaos. To be truthful, i was a bit embarrassed and was standing at the edge of the crowd when the uncle minding the stall singled me out and serviced me first.

Nevertheless, with the prawns bought, we happily went home; with me already busy with ideas on how to make the best of them.
