Our oranges and lemonades didn't get touched, I guess every thing was too busy eating my grapes.

Nets sound like a good plan

Hmm, chicken salt is great...made from the bones though

I also like the choice of Asian foods here, although the Indian choice is not so good.
Chicken breasts seem to be massive here compared to the ones i bought in UK.
Also alot of fruit i have never heard of like 'custard apples' but they are yakkkk!!!

I like Dukkaa (SP?), the nutty stuff they give you with olive oil and balsamic and yummy bread, in restaurants. Never had that before we migrated.

Also like cheap avacados and mangos (used to buy them occasionally in sainsburys, now every week here), Helgas soy and linseed bread is good, bottled sweet chili sauce is v. handy for a stir fry, our local market has great fruit and veggies. Today I bought:

1 whole cauliflower
2 whole Broccoli
Bag of Brussels sprouts
Bag of Green beans
2 avacados
Bag of Carrots
Bag of Spanish onions
4 Swedes
Bunch of fresh beetroot
2 large parsnips
Bag of kipfler spuds
Bag of mushrooms
Bunch of Asparagus
4 large leeks
Bunch of rosemary
Bunch of Parsley
1 Paw Paw
Huge bunch of Lady fingers (16 on bunch)
1 mango
4 Granny smiths
Bag of tangerines
2 lemons
12 JUMBO sized happy eggs

Cost me $40 for the lot (Hmm, that must be around 16 quid). Bargain and fresh as.

So, fresh and quality produce has got to be the best thing for me.
