What we bought, spent and ate this week


Hello Dear Reader,

As you can see by the photo below, hubby must have been hungry when he was shopping, hence the chips and sesame snaps, well at least the chips were on special for $2.50 a large packet! The muesli bars where also on special for $2.00 a box and are good for when hubby goes fishing. Also the meat (1/2 kg mince and 1 kg chicken thigh fillets) was in the fridge at the time of the photo, but we all know what they look like.
