Mozzarella Friday

I'm in a mood today idk why.

Not everyday's rainbows & butterflies.

Went grocery shopping, bought a few dinner ingredients to cheer myself up.

It's interesting how my definition of comfort food subconsciously evolved from that plate of Char Kway Teow + extra cockles / seafood crab feast / Hainanese chicken (thigh) rice extra chili / prawn noodles soup + Ngor Hiang, to well.. Mozzarella Tomato Arugula Salad with Balsamic reduction. πŸ€”

My mood was at ground zero & the Burrata Salad at The Coastal Settlement was exactly what I was craving for haha.

Grocery List

Here are my new comfort foods.

Mighty pleased when I finally got hold of this.

I was searching the cheese selection section, then the regular cheese area, back here back there and finally found them tucked in a small little corner.

My heart almost broke, for reals. πŸ˜…

Spent over $10 bucks for this pack, but hey, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do? 😁

The little balls are so soft and milky creamy though. Money well spent, on a gloomy day.

I also came across ORGANIC PEANUT BUTTER.

I love me some peanut butter! & I was on a hunt for an organic / low fat option (cos I eat too much peanut butter on a weekly basis). Came across this and couldn't pass on it. So yay! Now let's hope it taste as good πŸ‘πŸ»

Had the regular reduced sugar version yesterday (& it was πŸ‘πŸ»), so decided to see what the almond flavour was like.

Sometimes I crave milk, but I'm avoiding fresh / cow's milk bcos it has a bad rep.

Sorta. With all the hormones & stuff I think.

Anyway!

100% almond milk can taste a little.. Not so "fresh milk". So I'm hoping this will be a pleasant in between 😊

Smoked Salmon is love.

& since I realised I'm increasingly attracted to quinoa based salads recently (Kith Cafe), I decided to learn how to make some.

& also to buffer against those days I crave for rice but don't feel like wasting calories on white rice. πŸ˜‰

"Fluff the quinoa" is what I think of (cos I watch too many cooking shows), & that "fluff" word ALWAYS GETS ME.

I want some fluffy quinoa please!!!
☺️☺️☺️

I'm thinking in chicken stock, grilled Mexican influenced chicken, or some pesto garlic shrimps.. πŸ˜‹

& so.. This is dinner. The Mozzarella balls did their magic 😊
