West End Markets grocery haul

We managed to make it to the West End markets on Saturday to stock up on our fresh fruit and vegetables - more so the vegetables than the fruit.

  • Curry leaves x 1 bunch
  • Beans x 1 bag
  • Mushrooms x 1 bag
  • Bean sprouts 1 bag
  • Broccoli x 1
  • Carrots x 1 bag
  • Lebanese cucumber x1
  • Red onions x 1 bag
  • Passionfruit x 3
  • Banana x 6
  • Strawberries x 2 punnets

The strawberries were 2 punnets for $5, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. Total spend was $21.50 - still not hitting the $30 mark.

Cherries are coming into season, so it'll be lovely to taste them again.

[Daily life] If the ring fits...

  • I've lost the SO to Final Fantasy whichever-the-latest-release-is. Yes, it's very pretty. Yes it's possibly the most awesome Final Fantasy game EVAH! But you know what? It's just a game and a very linear one at that.

  • We've had someone come out to our home to demonstrate a cookware set. I've never had a personal salesperson come over before and was curious about the experience. Now I'm not, but I'm impressed. Still didn't buy anything though - not at almost $4000 a pop.

    Having the salespeople do the demo and ask me questions, which I could very honestly and easily say 'no' (eg. can you see yourself cooking like this everyday?) - made me realise that traditional Western cookware sets is not something we need at the moment. I don't need 5 pots and a skillet. I need 2 pots, 1 pan and 1 wok - cuz I don't steam vegetables with every meal. How dull.

  • Australia Junior Masterchef! OMG!
    That is all.

  • I'm finding it easier and easier to say 'no' to couchsurfers who don't put any effort into asking for a place to crash. Especially if you address us as 'dude'. Duuuuuuuuuude.

  • I've finally pulled my papercraft tub from the garage to make Christmas cards. I had almost forgotten how much fun making handmade greeting cards can be. Paper, punches, inks, card, ribbon... it's all happening!
