Saturday, “O-Key”, Supermarket!

I know, but I do not like to cook. I have signature recipes that work very well, but I always feel bad for wasting precious time on cooking. This duty took my husband Valera.He does it perfectly. And most importantly, he does it with pleasure. Therefore, it is the most delicious and fresh, and Useful. Now, as never before, he’s worried about the quality of products and the usefulness of the prepared dishes. I, as an outside observer and taster, taste all of his creations. That is why +10 pounds inevitably added( In the supermarket to walk with him this “punishment”. He carefully checks all descriptions of product composition, shelf life, and other information. I at this time hanging around a huge supermarket by choosing something interesting ( to me) and take photos

I actually wanted to write about ordinary Saturday, but it turned out a large-scale photo-report by on the supermarket).
From early morning it was raining, so we got out of the house with a slight delay. First, quickly ran to the mail to send the orders to my clients. And at the same time, get a new batch of yarn. To test it we will a little later. IMG_3423Then remembering that on Saturdays comes a barrel of milk, went to buy fresh milk and cheese. Milk is very delicious!!

Valera announced in the morning that’s on the menu tonight we will have fish. So we went to the supermarket. It’s great that this campaign coincided with the theme of my story for you my dear readers.
Near our house, there are several supermarkets, and today we went to one of them “OK”!IMG_3436
Valera went to choose fish for lunch, and I went to prepare the photos for the story. This supermarket is large and it presents all the product groups.
First, my path was a section of cloth goods for the holiday and since he is not soon, I did not stay there. IMG_3440Next, I looked in the Department of flowers and flower pots suddenly there will be a new pot for houseplants.

 

On the contrary, the division about the Bath!!!
