The list was very kindly donated by Rockie from Portland, Oregan. My guess is that this is a top up shop rather than a large weekly visit. Items on the menu for the next couple of days could include a salad with lettuce, cucumber? Maybe some Mexican food with the rice, beans and salsa and bagels with cream cheese for lunch?
I had never heard of Mr Stubbs and his BBQ sauce before so here is more info for those who are interested: http://www.stubbsbbq.com/
Apparently, “This is the real deal, the original. And its tangy tomato, vinegar, molasses and black pepper are gonna treat you right.”
Rockie has great handwriting but in case you need help making it out, the items are:
This just in from Yvonne, our own very special Australian correspondent (her blog can be found here).
“I was standing in the queue and spotted this list clutched in the fist of the shopper ahead of me. I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse (you don’t want to know), and I became the proud owner of the list.
It was at the Coles Supermarket, Myrtleford. Cheers!”
There are many points of interest here, it does indeed to appear to be Rosa’s Birthday and Rosa’s will be getting a scarf and card at least – maybe some eggs too? I am not sure if the carpet cleaner is for her.
Now, about the wire wool… The list so far is pretty typical with the usual mix of food stuff and cleaning bits, but wire wool? This is a strange addition, maybe a little too strange as the author hastily crossed it off the list shortly after adding it.
The note paper is is great with tea and cakes shown, the handwriting is female.
Many thanks Yvonne, what did you have to promise to get your hands on this list? Whatever it was, it is much appreciated.

Three cucumbers! Nobody buys three cucumbers! Maybe this hard working mum is also catering for the local cricket club and making sandwiches for the home and away teams. That may explain why 3 loaves of bread and 9 bottles of squash are required. Actually the cricket season has finished here so there must be something else going on.
Lots of fruit and veg which is good to see but also lots of kiddie friendly meat products, chicken fingers, hot dog sausages, burgers and of course who could ignore the turkey jetti:

Wow, what a list. These people eat well with a variety of ingredients to make meals from around the world. They have a cat and children. The illustrations are great, I particularly like the little bird perched next to the cat biscuits. Lots of help from the children to make this shopping list.
