Rosa’s Birthday

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.

The ‘Spray and Wipe’ is not a brand we have in the UK, a quick Google shows this: Colgate Ajax Spray n Wipe 

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.

Eggs Rosa, Money, cucumber, potatoes, red onions, cos lettuce, cream x 2, bacon, deodorant, spinach, vanilla, mushrooms, coffee beans, washing power, toilet cleaner, spray n wipe, toilet things, steel wool, dishwasher cleaner, b’day card Rosa, scarf for Rosa, preen carpet cleaner.

No meat here.  Mainly fruit and veg.  Not much to make whole meals, pasta, rice etc.

A decent list on traditional paper representing a rounded, 5 a day, diet.

Small banana, small satsuma, grape, lettuce, peppers, tomatoes x 2, onions red, sweet potatoes, potato x 2, 2 big yoghurt, 1 bread, peanut butter, olives, two lemonade, 4 grapefruit, 1 milk.

All the way from… Comox, BC, Canada

So much to say here.

  1. What great note paper.
  2. The ingredients for a classic paella.  Hola paella.  This is a one meal shopping list belonging to somebody who enjoys cooking and probably goes shopping often through the week rather than doing one large weekly shop.
  3. What is app?? Apples or something a bit more high tech?
  4. Last but not least, this is now the third continental contribution to TheShoppingLists.com Many thanks to Yvonne’s’ niece in Comox, British Columbia, Canada.  We now have lists from the UK, Australia and Canada.

Hi Yvonne, or Yvonne’s niece, could you let me know in which shop this list was used?

Dinner: chicken, shrimp, chorizo, onion, Spanish white rice or arborio, saffron, mussels, pimento, bread, garlic, app??, lemon.
