Fifty shades of pork.

Can one have a seasoning fetish?

Tonight's installation of chipping away at our grocery mountain is char siu. Turns out pork belly is extremely cheap at Shoppers, so we stocked up. I am anticipating this greatly, not only because it smells amazing but also because it's 9:20 and we haven't had dinner.

Last night Andrew and I went to Nine to watch the season premiere of RuPaul's Drag Race. They in fact show every new episode on all the upstairs screens, and a drag queen "hosts" by asking trivia questions on a mic during commercial breaks. And I had a decent time, but to be honest I don't anticipate going back for this event. There is only so much wig-throwing and outfit-peeling that can be done, and I think RPDR has already done it all. At this point the thrill I'm sure is for the current contestants and their IRL fans, but since I am neither of those I will sit the show out from now on.

I might actually spend more of my Mondays at happy hour at Brian's* bar, where week after week there are fun regulars but not too much of a crowd.

Dinner time!

* In addition to making char siu from scratch, my boyfriend works at a bar. What a catch, eh?

Wait, Shoppers has pork belly?! Checks profil...dang wrong Shoppers. That's a drugstore chain here, but they do have a few groceries.

I love me some char siu, so tasty!

In DC and Maryland, Shoppers is a small chain of supermarkets. They are the only one locally that stocks all the ethnic groceries my boyfriend uses to cook so they get most of our shopping budget.
