Well it had to be done, I've been holding off doing the shopping for as long as I could. The little top ups from Aldi, B & M, Poundstretcher, Asda, and my garden have kept me going. There's only so much rice, pasta, and tins you can eat on a daily basis, then the cravings start for some fresh veg.
I went to Tesco at 7.30pm last night, it's only five miles away so I consider the money I spent on petrol is a good investment when I can come away with this little haul. I struck lucky, they had over ordered on a lot of stock, and there weren't many people there ready to grab it, so I managed to get my share. I came out an hour and a half later with a trolley full. It pays to be vigilant and watch what the assistants are doing with their ticket machines. There was a nice young man marking down the veg and he knows me and what I look for. An Asian woman was in competition with me, she grabbed a couple of items which I would have liked, but she has a kids to feed and I'm pleased they will get some peaches. I beat her to the 25p cauliflower :o) Swings and roundabouts.
My, that looks better. My fridge is all scrubbed out and super clean, it's like a new one. All this will be inspected daily to make sure it is eaten before it goes off. The soft fruit will be the first to go, the swede will be the last. I got some Quorn burgers on offer for the freezer, and bags of frozen peas, sweetcorn, and broad beans. These are handy to have as a standby. The wine by the way was given to me, in exchange for delivering two dogs to the kennels and fetching them back the following day. I will do odd jobs for wine, ha ha.
