Well again it’s time to join Bacon and I in a blog hopping shopping trip..
Please do not TRIP on your trip…
We enter the arena of wobbly wheels in search of these goodies this week:
Olives..yes I love me an olive…my faves are dried and hard to come by they are more intense in flavour and kind of sweet..but this week I got my next fave..the pitted Kalamata olives..i bought a box once an tried to preserve them myself..it just didn’t happen despite my best daily efforts at rinsing and rebrining..oh well…thanks to the Deli I do not have to go without!
At the deli this week they were $14.99 Aussie dollars a kilo
Next is Room defunk-ifyer..usually this old 60’s baby burns incense..my fave being Frankinsence or White Sage..the Frankinsence reminds me I am sure of a past life in ancient Egypt (and explains my kitty love and various statues).I can close my eyes and imagine I am in front of a pyramid..ahhh
The White Sage I burn when I think there is too much negativity around (see there’s a side to me you may not know)
But when I want a long lasting and gentle smell through the house I burn this bad boy….
It’s an Airwick Essential oil candle (apple and cinnamon this week )
And it cost $6.26 Aus dollars this week on special saving about $2.00
Next is Lettuce..now may fave is cos or I think my American friends call it Romaine? but they were not available..ironic winter is the best time to grow lettuce and summer is when we want it.
So I settled for the much underrated Iceberg..which as a child I used to sprinkle sugar on the leaves and eat..ewwww.go figure!
And this lettuce this week cost a ridiculous $2.99 Aus Dollars! nuts!
The next item was light globes..pretty much all we can get are energy efficient..which cost a bomb and despite the claims of super long life..die well before they should..of course being warrantied you can get a replacement as long as you can find the receipt..which we now put into the empty box..so we have a cupboard full of empty boxes..this will end up an episode of hoarders..just sayin…
Since we oddly did not need one for a change I have no correct price but they run at about $10.00 Aussie dollars i think..
And now the Random item..
Yes Quinoa..i love this stuff..i use it as much the same way as couscous but the various colours are a super delish alternative..
I can add anything it cooks up beautifully and is super good for you..because they say it is bwahaah.
It costs $19.90 Aussie dollars a kilo which has come down a bit since all the cool folk started to cotton on to it..amazing how expensive things are when they are unpopular.
But then there are now many many Coeliacs now and the Gluten free products are still rudely expensive!
So there you go my list done..being absent so much i thank Bacon again for being a stalwart at the shopping blog post..and now..time to put the feet up and have an olive..with a glass…and maybe some Vermouth…
Thanks again for joining the shop til you drop blog hop and have fun checking out everyones carts 🙂 loves Fozziemum x
