Split Peas


What are these numbers?  This list was found by Steve and he thinks they could be a running total of the prices.

What else do we know?  This list was taken from a spiral bound notepad which has been cut vertically.  The list was written by more that one person, compare BLACK BAGS with Bananas, not only capitalisation but also a difference in the Bs.

This person is a crosser offer.  They have bought no meat, a vegetarian?  Actually there is some ham near the end.

The addition of the newspaper on the list suggest a weekly newspaper rather than a daily.  This fits as Steve found the list on a Sunday

Milk, choc spread, sweet pots, pots, frozen fruit, fruit, toms, orange juice, newspaper, black bags, bananas, rice, shampoo, sensodyne, shower gel, cheese, ham, split peas, shampoo.

Found by Steve in Sainsbury’s in Tadley.

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.

Great Hand Writing

Firstly, what great writing.

This list, I presume is for two people, maybe code named D and W? There is some mixture of upper and lower case writing and the common grocer’s apostrophe.

Crisps, beer, wine, D|ginger, bread, D|W|Tablets, oxo’s, chicken oxo’s, washing liquid, fruit, veg, curry sauce, rice.

In answer to the question, what is Oxo:

Dog ham?

Makeup remover pads, gaviscon, crisps, egg fried rice x 2, chocolate, linguine, prawn crackers, Bombay potatoes, chicken, cereal bars, rolls, bread, white wine, eggs, yoghurts, cold meat, dog ham, orange juice, grated cheese, sausage rolls, chicken, cucumber, bananas, fruit, mushrooms, jackets, ice creams, garlic bread, chair, chocs for Ruth.

Note how Rob gets four of his own yoghurts and Ruth is going to get some chocolates.  12 eggs is rather a lot and what is dog ham?

This is a useful reference on the subject:
