Salad, grease and tiramisu
Saturday morning at the shops always begins or ends with eating. This was last Saturday:
First, a two salad combination from Sumo Salad – Mexican salad and falafel salad. Jac ate most of this, but I had a taste. The flavours of the Mexican salad were delicious – the cheese, sour cream and chilli beans were wonderful. I wasn’t so keen on the soggy tortilla squares though. They should’ve just left those out completely. The falafel salad was beautiful – the falafels themselves were tasty, the roasted pumpkin and red capsicum were gorgeously sweet. More cous cous would’ve been welcome. I’d definitely eat that falafel salad again.
I was drawn to a poster proclaiming the return of Chicken Treat‘s Hawaiian Pack, with “the original Big Banana” for a limited time only. Not only did this come with a delicious whole banana as advertised, the pineapple fritter was large and juicy. The crumbed banana was everything a deepfried banana should be – hot and crispy on the outside, ripe, soft and sweet on the inside. The chicken was tiny though – seriously, they must be cooking bantams or something! Jac had some chicken, banana and pineapple too. I ate all the stuffing that came with the chicken- Jac doesn’t care for commercially made stuffing. Me, I like all sorts of stuffing – Chicken Treat stuffing and supermarket BBQ chook stuffing, and the good homemade stuff that’s made with love. :)
After all that salty chicken and chips, Jac felt like some ice cream – tiramisu ice cream from Baskin Robbins. They have seriously got the whole ice cream and cake thing perfect – their strawberry cheesecake ice cream has real cheesecake in it and is simply sublime; the tiramisu ice cream has real sponge fingers in with the ice cream and is absolutely wonderful. Tiramisu and coffee fans, this is one for you!
