… an apple, a chair, an elephant or even an aeroplane or a rocket… the next person repeating all the list from the beginning and then adding one more to the end until someone forgets what went next and then they are out and the game continues.
It is a game i used to play with my children. When they were young they would say sensible things such as an apple or a banana but has they got older they realised that they could buy just about anything at all. It was a game after all.
However i did go to the store today and buy food. I only go once every two weeks and the only thing i buy inbetween is usually milk and cat food. So today i took my list and my daughter, seeing has she is home from university and we set off. This is what we bought -
canned fruit in it’s own juice
bread from the bakery
vegetables, potatoes, carrots, sweetcorn, swede
fresh fruit, strawberries, apples, pears, pineapple
salad, lettuce, cucumber, spring onions, radish,
and to keep my daughter happy sausages, energy drink and crisps/chips and ketchup
The cost £42.22
This food should last us 2 weeks with a about another £10 on top. So for £25 a week i am feeding 2 of us. It will be interesting to see what happens when the other daughters comes back from university next week. Also in the cupboard at home i had canned tomatoes, peas, beans of various kinds and baking goods such as flour and sugar.
I bought myself a treat too locally made apple chutney for when i eat my yummy cheese.
I managed to miss out the meat aisle and the chcoclate and chips aisle and the ice cream. In fact my trolly looked definately healthy. I was going to take a picture but my ever helpful daughter who doesn’t read my blog put it all away for me. You can shop in one of the big stores you just have to be aware of the tricks of the trade.
The next 3 days evening meals are
1 tomato pasta bake, garlic bread and strawberries
2 pan heggarty and salad (fat omelette)
3 vegetable soup and fresh bread
