because, for those of you who do not know, I live a tad outside the delivery range.

I haven't done this for 4 years.

What must I not miss?

I'm starting in the bakery section.

But how come?
You are in Oz, land of ace food.

Deli gets me every time, all sorts of lovely cheeses and olives in spicy garlicky oil. No wonder my food budget is spiralling!

FrannyandZooey Sun 24-Aug-08 13:12:05

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Aug-08 13:15:58

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Aug-08 13:16:11

my arse certainly looks like I do

moondog Sun 24-Aug-08 13:17:38

Aye WWW.
Il ove lurking on bootcamp thread (as you well know) and seeing what you have eaten.
Tis a veritable chorizo, cava & salmon fest.

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:18:31

don't get me started on australian supermarkets, MD, the small producers and delis, perhaps, but no one who will bring quality trough and slap it straight on your kitchen table.

I've registered and everything, false name natch, so can I do my fantasy list and just legg it without paying?

And is no one else giving a rat's hat about the closing Olympic ceremony either?

Cappuccino Sun 24-Aug-08 13:20:44

oh moondog doesn't she make you envy, our lovely WWW

here is her list from the other night

crab, prawns, anchovies, rollmop herring
chorizo
danish blue, port salut, brie
cava

I would have to be at a Christmas party to consume all that in one day

more envy

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Aug-08 13:20:49

lol at false name for Ocado. Go on, post your fantasy Ocado shop then wong.

I know Moondog, I am enjoying lots of lobster, prawns and crab atm too.

moondog Sun 24-Aug-08 13:22:30

I am going cerazeee on prawn front her in Bangladesh. I thkn they supply most of 'em to other places. Looking at some today as big as a baby's arm.

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:25:06

I've been eating a LOT of lamb cutlets in all sorts of marinades, on my IPD.

What do yo imagine they are feeding those prawns, MD? hmm. And have you noticed the veritable explosion in Homes for One Armed Babies in <racks brain for capital of Bdesh>?

I will post my fantasy list, I will be doubling up on many things as this is pure greed/porn.

I 'm still on the bread, which of course I do not eat in anycase.

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Aug-08 13:25:07

Omg, I have just put 2 trays of roast potatoes into the oven, with rosemary, garlic cloves and salt and pepper and I know they will be these golden gleaming things and I can't have any. Never mind, can have chicken breast and skin with butter, thyme, garlic stuffed under the skin and I can have broccoli and green beans and mange tout but not peas or carrots or baby sweetcorn

WideWebWitch Sun 24-Aug-08 13:26:13

yum at prawns in bangladesh moondog, what's it like out there? Are you enjoying it?

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:27:28

what the HELL has happened to Kingsmill? Has it gone bust?

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:28:04

oh no, just changed livery

carry on, as you were

moondog Sun 24-Aug-08 13:30:12

Oh it's great.
Mad,chaotic, colourful, fabulous buildings, paddy fields of emerald green, lots of poverty (not so good obv.).

Food is wonderful and best bit (as have boasted repeatedly about on MN) is housekeeper who cooks like a dream. I haven't done owt in 6 weeks.

Actually, it is interesting leaving cooking and shopping to someone else. I eat less as he doesn't buy what I would buy.e

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:33:25

and how's the child slave labour market? A friend of mine who works for the World Bank in Asia told me Bdesh is probably the worst place for it?
But obviously you are not directly responsible for it nor do you have any links to it so let's move on.

Are you in a compound with other expats? Can't imagine you there if you are. You must be on your best behviour

Feck I forgot to add a slab of angel cake to my bakery list

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:34:51

there ain't none!
Granola traybake, wtf?

moondog Sun 24-Aug-08 13:36:33

Child slave labour big issue.
I have seen factories where garment industry based and tis a hellhole.
Worst thing is begging. Dear God, tis like Hades=crippled,deaf,blind,maimed,learnig disabled,disfigured.
Stuff of nightmares.

lol at compoun idea. No way. It's not like that here, than God.

Cappuccino Sun 24-Aug-08 13:38:02

oh dear lord Moondog you are not allowed to say crippled

go and stand in the corner and wring your hands wink

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:39:04

yes, the special needs care is far more commercially orienteted over there isn't it? Shudder

so what are you in then, an ordinary middle class street? What's it like?

Who is Mrs Crimble? She seems to be rather aggressive on the biscuit front?

suzywong Sun 24-Aug-08 13:42:23
