Shopping day

February 6th, 2011 at 11:05 pm

Two days no spending then I had to go buy lunch at Subway $4.75 for 6 inch sub of seafood with the lot including chilli. At least I enjoyed it. I had my list to buy at supermarket, 3x cat litter, 1kg skim milk powder, and fruit. As most of fruit growing areas have been flood here, I look for what was on special seedless green grapes stood out as this is my favourite fruit and I wonít be buying bananas for a while the prices have already skyrocketed. Cyclone Yasi destroyed 85% of the plantations here. I do still have some frozen banana for baking so I will make some banana muffins to use them up. I have some firm pears still in the fridge so I will make some stewed pears as these donít taste nice and I will sweeten them up when I cook them.

How did I go with my shopping list.

Cat litter x3 - check
Powdered milk - check
Grapes - check

Found myself at the empty checkout so paid for the above and drove home. $18.15 lighter.
I should need to go near a supermarket for my own shopping this week but will be taking my DF-M to do her monthly shop soon!

    You will certainly have some produce challenges!

    Yes it will be a challenge for a while as most States will have problems of some kind with fresh food with all the Floods, Cyclones and now bushfires in the west. Farmers here are doing it tuff as most have just come out of 10 year drought. So it will be the end for some of them. We like to support our farmers but it's the middle men and supermarkets that keep the price high. Each year I like to buy a few luxury fruits and grapes are one of them.
