Yes, I do have other favorites but this one usually, not all the time, involves the others! If I am not buying it, eating it, cooking it, talking about it or taking pictures about it I am reading about it!
Did you notice in the above picture the top upper right? Cactus in a jar! At first, I thought it might be French-style green beans but then I read the label. Have you ever had them?
I bought that Seafood Medley because 1) it interested me and 2) it was on sale for $7.99 and consists of mussels (from Canada), calamari (from India), shrimp (from India) and scallops(from China). It is packed in and distributed from California. Mmmm--when did they stop having these items in the Pacific Ocean off the California coast? I am thinking of making it in a Scampi sauce on pasta.
Also in the picture is one of my 5 top restaurants in Fort Lauderdale--Cabo Blanco is a Peruvian place with excellent food that I have been going to for a few years. I started off by trying their various lunch specials and really liked their Tallarin Saltado Con Camarones which is shrimp with noodles, tomatoes, onions in a soy sauce, oil, vinegar with ginger. It's a huge dish with 10-12 medium-size shrimp that is really tasty and it is only $11.95 I usually have a 2-4-1 coupon which means it basically costs $6 plus tax and tip which is a hard price to beat! I now have it whenever I go there and that is when I go to the Regal theatre to see a movie on Friday.
Also in the picture, though it doesn't look that big is a humongous net weight 2-pound 14-ounce jar of fire roasted red peppers that can be used every which way including as a snack.
Okay, time to have dinner as I watch the new non-musical version of "Les Miserables" on PBS.
I won't say who but they know who is responsible for me having a weight gain this week because of this!
