Jewelry Display Cabinets and Mannequin
After dropping off my stuffs, we headed to MIL's house to tell her about the sad news. Before leaving our home, hubby told me that if MIL wanna go in Ames, we'll all go today. Unfortunately, MIL wasn't home, must be in an auction. lol It seems like hubby's in the mood to go somewhere, he asked me if I wanna go in AMes or Des Moines. Since he's the one driving I told him he can choose. Needless to say, we went in Des Moines and our first destination was the local needlework shop there.:) Stitch n' Frame along Douglas Ave, beside Merle Hay Mall. I have a lot of pending designs to stitch so I decided not to buy any pattern though Blackbird Designs, Sweetheart Tree, and lots of my fave designers, caught my attention. I couldn't resist though, not to browse the Caron Threads. I ended up buying 3 wildflowers hand-dyed, plus a couple of MH beads and some magazine holder. - something that I always buy when I go there. I use them for my JCS Ornaments Special Issue, SANQ & and my latest Piecework magazines, oh and oop Fine Lines too. They come handy when I wanna carry my mags from attic to the living room and vice-versa.
By the time we left the needlework shop, it's already noontime so we decided to have lunch at Merle Hay. We look around a little bit afterwards plus the fact that hubby couldn't resist not to browse on the "cards" (baseball, football, etc.). I teased him that probably he new there's a "card show" going on there that's why he chose to go in Des Moines... lol he said he didn't know that and he just got lucky. But for some reason, he didn't get or buy any.
- 6 pieces-ripe mangoes (was contemplating on getting some green ones but they're kinda pricy)
- 2 packs-preserved duck & salted eggs (as you can see in the photo, in Philippines we call these burung itlog)
- 4 pcs-eggplants (japanese kind)
- a sack of bok-choy (more than 12 stalks)
- 2 packs-shanghai/eggroll wrapper
- soft tofu
- a bunch of taro (or "gabi" which I put in my sinigang or tamarind soup)
- 4 pcs-ampalaya (I also saw some patola and okra but they don't look fresh so I didn't get any)
- 2 bottles-datu puti vinegar
- 1 bottle-fish sauce or "alamang" in my native language
- 6 pcs-fish, "galunggong (GG) and hasa-hasa"
- 4 packs-Knorr sinigang mix (for my tamarind soup)
I forgot what else I got... lol Anyways, once I got home, I immediately cook rice and half of the GG... "paksiw" topped with eggplant and bok-choy.... yum yum yum. Therefore you know what I'll gonna have for supper guys... lol My dessert will be ripe mango.:)
