I did my usual weekly grocery shop this morning and realised
that I nearly always have on hand a few basic staple fresh consumables.
There is always (well, nearly always, as I sometimes run out!)
a supply in our pantry of potatoes, carrots, onions, apples, lemons, milk and
eggs. Seven staples that I would not like
to be without as I use them so much in my cooking.
Of course, we purchase other fresh things as well plus all
our normal grocery items.
Both Son and I make individual trips to the supermarket as
we like different things.
Our dinner meals, though, we do take together – he buys all the meat and
I buy all the fruit and vegetables. It
works out quite well and we seldom double up on things.
Not that many years ago (or maybe it is!), hubby and I grew
most of our own vegetables and a good amount of fruit.
Son and I grow a few essentials like silverbeet and lettuce and a few herbs,
but I must admit that I do now find it easier to simply buy what we need.
Have a happy day 😊
Oops, I just realised I forgot to photograph the onions –
you will have to imagine them sitting there!
