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.
