Hanging out in one place – especially a teeny tiny one like Palolem – for over a month means that my blogging material is rather limited. Drawing all day, cooking at home, and avoiding most human interaction – while super refreshing and kind of amazing – just doesn’t make for exciting reading. So this blog is devoted to the one place I do actually deem worth of leaving the house for: the grocery store!
Yep, that’s right, this blog is basically just a typed out version of my grocery list. And yes, I realize that some people* might not be quite as excited by groceries as I am, but…. Well, there isn’t really a but. Deal with it, dudes. At least I added pictures — that counts for something, right?
Palolem is noticeably lacking in grocery stores, so a couple of mornings a week, I bike to the nearest ‘big city’, Canacona, head to the one supermarket there, and fill my bike basket with groceries for around 300RS/$5.50.
Here’s what regularly finds its way into my basket:
Capsicum (bell peppers to you ‘Murrkans): 10c each
Basmati rice: $1.20/kg
Nestle dried fruit dark chocolate: 50c/teeny weeny bar
Sabji Masala spice mix (I put this shizz in everything): 50c/50g
Chilli sauce: 80c/200ml bottle
Maggi vegetable stock packets: 3c/wee cube
Club soda: 50c/1.25l
Instant coffee: 20c/10g pack
Put all (well, not all) these awesome ingredients together, and what do you get?
*Or all people, with the possible exceptions of Ahimsa and my big sister.
