I thought I would start to photograph our weekly shopping, I think it is interesting looking at what people buy in different parts of the world. This is a fairly normal shop for us, with lots of fruit and veg and very little meat. Plus the essentials of coffee (for hubby) and chocolate (for me)
|This weeks groceries were all bought from ALDI, with the exception of - the hair gel, real cream, stock cubes and french shallots, which were from Woolworths and the chicken thighs fillets and beef mince were from our Butcher |
Woolworths-$16.97 + some extra's later in the week $16.98
Nothing Bros Prime Meats-$21.20
Coles Marked down fresh produce-$4.56
A day out in Maleny included picking up some items at the IGA, Maleny Dairy, A Haberdashery and The Maleny CO-OP, Total- in round figures $100.00
Total-$214.91-thats a big week! way more than normal
What we ate
Wednesday-Prawn stir fry with ginger and shallot, steamed Basmati rice and Broccolini
Thursday-Pizza night. We had to order Pizza from Dominos as our favourite Pizza shop, 8 slices, has closed down. It is more than a shame, we thought it was a really good little business. Hubby also noticed that the Bakery in the same shopping centre has closed as well, maybe the rent went up? I think we will have a go at making our own Pizza this coming week.
Friday-Pan fried Reef fish (Snapper) with warm Potato, Rocket and Avocado salad
Saturday-Spiced Chicken in Coconut Sauce (Slow cooker)
Monday-Mince and egg with steamed Basmati rice and Broccolini
Tuesday-Steamed fish with ginger and shallot, steamed Basmati rice and Choy Sum. And we had a Coconut Sponge with Pineapple Syrup and Vanilla Ice-cream for dessert (my Birthday dinner) It was totally delicious!
So, tell me, anything new on your menu this week? Are the seasons starting to change in your part of the world?
