Finally – Honey Calamansi!

31 07 2009

UNFORTUNATELY, I haven’t chanced upon one on any of the shelves I had ravaged these past days.  It’s quite ironic that about a month ago, I had held a bottle of it in my own hands and transfixed it with a long, emotionless stare; while inside my head, a debate was ensuing, especially since I wasn’t particularly keen on the merits of calamansi in a fancy sounding vinaigrette – in a commercially bottled one at that!

That’s from my post a week ago.

Grocery Basket - Honey Calamansi Vinaigrette

Dizon Farms Honey Calamansi Vinaigrette

Last Tuesday, I went to SM Supermarket in Makati, where I first saw “this.”  And where a month ago, all that “emotionless stare” above was happening.  I wasn’t disappointed.

Funny enough – or maybe because of something in my physiology that precluded logical thinking – all that I got at SM was this bottle of Dizon Farms Honey Calamansi Vinaigrette.  For the greens, I decided to go to Rustan’s.

So here was how a spur-of-the-moment grocery basket looked like.  The big bag of Basic Necessity’s SaladTime mung brean sprouts was intended for those moments when I would enjoy my pho (Vietnamese – errr, Vietnamese-inspired – noodle moments).  I threw in the San Remo angel hair because I have this gut feeling I’d crave for angel hair pomodoro before the weekend is through!
