what we eat..

Better late than never I say. I don't often join in on other bloggers challenges , not because I don't like them but purely because I cannot be bothered. Boils down to laziness really.

So FAIRLIE threw out the challenge and THIS I could not resist. I just found it fascinating. What people eat. A snippet of their life .... I am a closet stalker.

So this is us

Around Aus $82.00 (decided not to include the dog food and toilet paper) then I usually spend another $30 during the week on more fresh fruit and veg and something from the butcher and the baker (ha ha pardon the pun). There was already broccoli,pumpkin,carrits and zucchini in the house and some red meat in the freezer .I can keep my grocery costs down because I have fussy children that are happy to have basic inexpensive food ie spaghetti bolognese,vegetable risotto,and sausages and veg. Ha no lobster thermadore for them!
You will always find bread,apples,bananas and rocky road chocolate at my house and a crisper full of mini can coke zeros .

And I am always good for a cup of tea also.

I do the shopping bulk at the local coles (ocassionally the safeway when I am feeling a little crazy ) And go to my local Butcher,green grocer and bakery down the road.Support the locals I say.

What you got????

Well done!

At least none of our weekly shops look like the Australian shop represented in the Feeding a Hungry World book - how on earth do they get through all that mince? (have you seen the pic? if not you've just got to see it).

Thanks for the link to the photo essays - what a fascinating view of the world! Makes me wonder how my family's food pic would look...

Yay for you!

And I don't think you're a 'closet stalker' - more of a pantry stalker.

I found all those photos just fascinating.

ooohhh maaaaan. I reckon you would think we eat like the family from chad considering our pantry is so shit.....but always got me some lentils.

And also if those german had that 5c return on each recycled bottle (in SA only) theyd cut their bills in half.

I am such a voyeur when it comes to other people's fridges and cupboards. Your booty looks a lot like mine, but I'd swap the choccy for a coupla packs of squashed fly bikkies.
