I headed to Carrefour after work, intending to get mayonnaise, potatoes, lemon, potato peeler, toothpaste, lamb and some vegetables. Not that I was desperately short of food at home – there’s still minced pork, mussels and prawns in the freezer, and in the fridge, eggs, tofu and various vegetables.

However, I got distracted and also purchased a Nestum-like mix, potato crisps, strawberries, rosemary, oregano, mixed herbs, mushrooms, hot English mustard, ice cream, bacon, salmon, sharpening stone and pickles. The total damage came up to a frightful 233 RMB.

And for dinner, pan fried salmon steak and potato salad with bacon bits.

Surely not the best in the world, but remarkably satisfying. Especially the salmon – slightly charred skin on the outside, yet rare and flaky inside. If only salmon was not so pricey.
