Today I went to Walmart to develop a picture and to get the mister a wok. He’s a white guy with a Chinese girl — c’mon now! They have a cheap brand at Walmart for $5, so I bought it. Next I went to O-Mart (a very popular Asian supermarket in Killeen, located on S. Fort Hood Street; they specialize in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese foods) for live crabs. I got 3. I poked them with the tongs to see which ones were moving and still feisty, as some of them appeared to be dead (they weren’t moving). I got 3 that were snapping each other with their claws.
So for tonight’s dinner, it only cost me a total of $6.40 at O-Mart, no kidding! I got 3 live blue crabs, a huge piece of fresh ginger, and 3 baby bok choy stem batch; the crabs were only $5.03. Using fresh ingredients and cooking homemade dishes is not only healthier, but more affordable too. Even buying the wok at Walmart with my groceries at O-Mart, everything came out to like $10 (can’t beat that price!).
Here’s some pictures (I was told they can say a thousand words, ha!)… and for a video tutorial on how to cook Cantonese style blue crabs, check out the video below! (Oh, and I also made the baby bok choy tonight too.)
The mister got the awesome culinary knife set on Amazon.com, I love it! Check out my previous post on how to cook bok choy!
