I can't believe it's weekend again! It seems like I just finished putting away the newly washed clothes and its laundry time again! (Weekends are our laundry time)
Besides doing laundry, one of the things we do (I love to do!) is going to the Supermarket, my happy place!
When you are at the Supermarket, did you ever want to look at other people's carts? (Come on, just say it, haha!) Well, I do! Haha! Not that I'm nosy, I'm just. . . curious! I'm just curious what other people have in their list or what brand they prefer or if there are new stuff in the market I don't know about or that they might have tried something which is better than what we are using.
So if you are a curious person like me, I am sharing with you some of my favorite (tried and tested) supermarket finds these past few months:
I love to stock up on pasta sauces for those days when you don't know what to eat and you have to eat, haha! I know that food made from scratch is better and healthier but let's face it, we can't do it ALL THE TIME.
For the pasta sauce, I always buy Bertolli's Alfredo Sauce because it is the best white sauce I've tried and the kids love it! The kids love it so much that they don't like the tomato-based sauces anymore. It's creamy and cheesy (it has Parmesan cheese). It's a good basic pasta sauce which you work around to impress the family!

You can just heat the sauce but I take it up a notch and put some bacon love in it! Toss some bacon in the pan and wait for the bacon to render its fat because that is what you're going to use when you saute your onion. I also put some veggies in it.
I think your picky eater will love it! (Mine did)
I am a junkie. . .okay that didn't sound right, haha! I mean I am a junkie. . . I love junk food! I love Chips and dips! My most favorite dip. . . Stonemill's Spinach and Artichoke Parmesan dip!

It is best when it is heated. . . warning: it can be addicting! For those times when I'm lazy to prepare my lunch, I just grab a bag of chips and my favorite soda (must be ice cold!). . . and I'm a happy camper!
I tried using it as an omelette filling too and it was so good! We had it for 2 days and had to stop because it's just bad, haha!
(Now I feel like fixing myself an omelette, haha!)
I also like having some instant sauce mix in the pantry. Lee Kum Kee is one brand that I like. I've tried Lee Kum Kee's Chicken Wrap sauce (blogged about it here) and loved it! So I thought of trying their Mongolian Beef which was good too!
Another Lee Kum Kee product which I like is their Oyster sauce. Oyster sauce is a staple in our pantry because it just adds or enhances the flavor of the food that you cook. I love that Lee Kum Kee came out with a NO MSG and Gluten-free oyster sauce! I just hope it's true, haha!
Since I have a sweet tooth (a really sweet one, hehe) and I love sweet endings, do you know what is the best (ever!!!) brownie in a box in my book? It is still Ghirardelli's Triple Chocolate Brownie mix. I guarantee this!
|It's so moist and super chocolatey. . . and with choco chips!|
The other day, Hubby and I feel like having a fancy dessert. . . at home! So we just heated the brownie in the microwave for 20 seconds and put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and tadahhh . . .
|Brownie ala Mode!|
Who says you can't have a fancy dessert at home?!
It was definitely good. . .that I will bake another batch after I put up this post! haha!
Will be sharing more of my supermarket finds in the future. As they say. . . Sharing is Caring! =)
Have a good weekend everyone!!!
