You buy cake?!?!

Just éclairs from Sobeys.
Jam Doughnuts from Superstore on the rare occasion they have them.

I ran out of Lea & Perrins so bought another 568ml bottle for $6 at Wholesale Club. I think the last one lasted almost 2 years. There's no point buying the tiny bottles and beans aren't the same without a splash.

Worcestershire sauce presumably?

I like this one.

Just a few drops on a chicken breast in a small casserole dish prior to cooking. It even works in a microwave astonishingly well on the defrost setting.

They are all at it. Headline stores and deep-discounters. That's the model.

I suspect it's a reaction to Walmart now selling food.

Very disturbing news is that the Coupe Longeueil is coming back into fashion. That really is disturbing!

What a québécoise calls a mullet. Typically worn by white trash french Canadians named Jean-Guy

Urban Dictionary looks a bit iffy. There is only one accent in Quebec, for a start, and I've never met anyone called Jean-Guy.

The last time I picked up some chicken that said it was a 100% Canadian. That's got to the Trump Effect.

Forgot to mention...200g Snowdonia Cheese Truckles, $8.99 BOGOF, Sobeys.

I stuck with Black Bomber. Hoping to buy a few more Wednesday.

Very nice and without the saltiness of Balderson.

We ran out of coffee at the weekend so I went to my local Couche Tard (aka Mac's), where a 325g tin of Maxwell House cost me well over $9.

In a regular supermarket you can get a 925g tin of it for under $7.

Couche Tard is the fourth-largest company in Canada in terms of sales revenue. Can't imagine why

GF picked up black and green the other day. She gets bonus points

I was more surprised at it being BOGOF - you dont see that very often - its usually buy one get one half price.
