What makes Fridays so special in the Market?
It's the day that all the farmers with their prettiest and freshest produce and meats are put on display for people like my lovely wife Rose, and for others who want to find the freshest foods at bargain prices. Today Rose is looking for items on her 'See Food Diet' - if she 'sees' it, then it's going to be a part of her diet.
Growing up in the jungles of Leyte, Rose has become fond of vegetables, so she knows several secret spots to get things she doesn't grow at home. Several are easy for me to find - carrots, red onions, garlic, and... 'cinco was'?
'Cinco mas' when the Spanish colonials asked a lady in the market what the name of a certain root food was, the lady thought they were asking her the price for the root food. So the lady answered, 'cinco mas' or 'five more' as in '5 more pesos'. So what is 'cinco mas'? We know it as the turnip. Now you know.
The other week - instead of watching TV - we searched YouTube for recipes and April discovered a recipe for meatballs using ground chicken and pork. As a good Mommy, Rose finds the best choices of carne - meat - for our little girl's meal.
note: During the school week, none of us watch TV so that it doesn't become a bad habit. Instead we use other means of media to find topics 'WE' want to see.
So what are the prices for the ground chicken and pork? 185 pesos & 195 pesos. Rose could bargain the price to a lower amount, but she feels this price is reasonable and the people take very good care of her.
