FOOD FINDS: DFS

It's always a treat to shop at DFS Manila since you won't go home empty handed. Also, there are a lot of sale items if one is just brave enough to comb the whole place. Although I usually avoid the home/decor section and simply go straight to the cholates(!), I felt thankful to J for steering me and C in that section first. Found a goldmine of discounted Christmas decors and pots and pans. But before anything else, be sure to have a photo taken at the nice looking kalesa before you begin shopping. You can also opt to have your photo taken by the DFS staff using their computer, then post your photo on your FB page. Cool, right? ;)



Here's my new food finds at DFS:

Pringles Honey Mustard. This is a yummy find! Had I known it tasted so GOOD, I would've hoarded. Oh wells, there's always a next time. Costs $2.



Pringles Salt and Vinegar. I still prefer Lays. But then, its a nice alternative to the usual Pringles that you can buy in the grocery. Costs $2.


Everyday Cream Biscuits. There are several flavors to choose from but I played it safe and only got two of these flavors. The chocolate is L-O-V-E. Okay, okay. I just love chocolates so I'm a bit biased. The Mango and Orange flavors was delish as well. Costs $0.40. Time to hoard!


Gimbal's Jellybeans. Bought tons of these because of daughter's candy business. She buys candies and chocolates and sells it to her classmates. Best way to learn how to earn and learn that money doesn't grow on trees (so what's with the money tree? hahaha). Costs $1.15. Btw, daughter and I had fun trying out all of the flavors. Jellybean-overload!


McVities Fruit Shortcake. These reminds me of the biscuits of Marks and Expensive (Spencer) that I love to hoard. Also, these costs way, way cheaper than the ones at Marks and Expensive. Tasted good, too. Costs $1.35.


York Pieces Peppermint. I was so excited when I saw this because even if I love chocolates, I have a special preference for mint chocolates (and dark chocolates). Alas, I can't give a review of this yet because I haven't opened the pack yet. Blame the boxes of Hawaiian Host that me and J bought. Hahaha. Costs $7.20. Not bad.



Btw, I was a bit sad with the chocolate section because I was really looking forward to buy some mint M&Ms and other mint specials that is only available during the Christmas Season but nada. Luckily, there are tons of mint M&Ms and other mint chocolates at S&R (according to a friend) so everything's okay. I just have to schedule a trip there soon before the Christmas crowd thickens!

PS. If you are going to DFS, be sure to drop by at the Hawaiian Host section. The guy in-charge just gave us tons of chocolate-covered macadamia to eat. Well, there are a lot of "free-taste" also but since macadamias are expensive, we made tambay in front of the guy and had our fill of chocolates before getting some boxes. Yum. ;)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
