To say that I’ve been really busy lately is an understatement, and in the midsts of juggling between household chore, managing my kid, work and leisurely writing and reading, I’ve completely forgotten that my online game friends are coming for a visit. I’m sure I’ve mention to all of you before that I’m positively a gamer and I somewhat made lotsa real friends by playing the game.
Neway…as I was saying, friends…or rather my guildmates from Maplestory are coming and is plannting for a potluck cum BBQ gathering, to celebrate friendship and of course, to have fun with each other in real life rather just than in game. I have completely forgotten about the potluck gathering, and much to my chagrin, I don’t have all time in the world to cook up a storm. I wish I could just buy KFC or something as a part of my contribution, but I can’t possibly do that. I’m the eldest in the guild alliance and I have the ‘big sister’ reputatation to protect. Everyone else is bringing their own cooked food, and by hook or by crook, I’m going to have to do the same.
So I grabbed my purse and my shopping bag and made a mad dash to the morning market.
There’s not much left to be bought. Only some fresh produce
And limited selection of veggies. I couldn’t even spot my favourite baby spinach on sale. 🙁
It is embarrassing to admit that I only managed to get these; some fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, chicken, fish filament, shrimps and Bombay onions. Trust the Sleeping Beauty in me to snore away until 10am, and by the time I hit the morning market, I only managed to get these. Now…what in heaven’s name I can cook up for the potluck gathering with these? Any ideas? I really could use some help here.
