Grocery List #1

This was supposed to have been up yesterday but I was having some problems with the HTML coding of blogspot. So anyway, I'm re-typing this for the nth time.

To simplify your life even more, I will be posting a weekly grocery list consisting of ingredient that I will be using for the week's meals and baons. I suggest that you learn to substitute and experiment with ingredients to fit your budget and taste. The ingredients I buy will not always be exact and sometimes there will be missing ingredients from the list which I will have to use later on during the week. I don't plan my meals. I just cook whatever I feel like eating. So how do I figure out my grocery list? I also get whatever feels right. = )

Without further ado, here's this week's grocery list with corresponding price:

Meats
0.328 kg Chicken breast fillet P55.76
6 pcs Chicken wings P56.84

(Please note that I do not buy nor cook pork. It's not a religion thing. It's a health thing. The only pork products I can tolerate are ham, bologna, salami and siomai. My meat list only includes chicken and beef)


Seafood
2 fillets Tanigue P134.86
18 pcs White shrimp P146.16

Vegetables
1 head Cabbage P17.68
1 bunch Spring onions P8.56
1 bag Taiwan pechay P8.80
3 pcs Carrots P29
1 bunch Leeks P13.35
1 bag Parsley P8.30
1 bag Tomatoes P34.85
1 tray Young corn P11.50

Canned
1 can Corn Cream Style P25.55
1 can Button mushrooms P18.40
1 can Whole corn kernels P24.60
1 can Corned beef P44.95

Prepared/Pre-Cooked
1 tray Siomai P102
1 pack Kikiam P25.20

Others
1 bag Grated niyog P20
1 tetra pack Fresh milk P24.05
1 sm bottle Hoisin sauce P55.15
half a loaf Whole wheat bread P34
1 pack Vietnamese egg noodles P36.30
2 packs Vermicelli P6.60 (each)
1 pack Whole wheat tortillas P81.50

Total 1,030.56

The above list will cover breakfast for 2 persons, baon for 2 persons and dinner for 2-3 persons. That is, if you eat like us. = ) This is goof for approximately 1 week.

Addendum: I bought more chicken breast fillet, about the same amount yesterday as Migraine Boy loved the adobo flakes I cooked for lunch
