My basket


Here´s a look at what I´ve bought today. It´s been  Rachel´s idea to ask around, poking into people´s shopping baskets. Very fascinating. Post here, and roundup in a couple of days. I´m making the deadline, only just.
It´s not a representative basket at all, because I´m running crazy with all the work, and I haven´t been able to do a proper shopping trip. Here goes, anyway.
Beers, numbering 18 bottles. White sugar. One free range chicken. A box of Campo Real olives. Four greek yogourts. Butter. Frozen petit pois. A bag of frozen pearl onions. White sandwich bread from the good bakery in Santa Engracia. Mushrooms, red cabbage and a pineapple. Also parsley, but since that´s always free, I haven´t drawn it. I bought part at the supermarket, the chicken and veg at the market, and the frozen stuff at a specialist shop nearby. The total at the greengrocer came to 6,66. Funny, no?
I´ve made a dinner for five; chicken and mushroom pot pie, minted peas and sweet red cabbage. I thought we´d have the pineapple, but we didn´t, in the end. Plenty of beer to wash it down, as you can see.

Parsley is free in Spain? The dinner sounds delicious.

I, too, am intrigued by the idea of free parsley. Must have missed the wild fields of parsley the last time I was there!

No fields of parsley. The greengrocers give it away, that´s all. Unless you want a huge bunch, in which case they´ll charge you a simbolic ammount.
In Sevilla they even give away mint!

Heck in Alabama I'll give away mint~ it grows like a weed!
I love Greek Yogurt but it is hard to find here. When I do, I buy a basket full. I love mine with berries and almonds.

The chicken and mushroom potpie meal sounds delicious. And beer looks like it's very reasonably priced in Spain.

Not only does your grocery list (and subsequent menu) sound good, it looks good too!
