Grocery shopping list for July 2019

This post is the seventh in a series.

5 July

Went to IGA and bought dauphin, brie and Jarlsberg cheeses, olive oil spread, bread, sliced roast pork, sliced ham, a container of capsicum spread, water crackers, plus two sandwiches (one chicken and avocado, and one egg and lettuce) for lunch.

8 July

Went to IGA and bought sliced corned silverside, sliced leg ham, a container of mushroom soup, sausages, lamb chops, milk, and a chicken and avocado sandwich.

12 July

Went to IGA and bought lamb rump steaks, pork butterfly steaks, lamb cutlets, and brie, cheddar, and dauphin cheeses. Also bought some sliced silverside and some sliced ham, water crackers, bread, and two sandwiches for lunch (egg and lettuce, and chicken and avocado). On the way home I stopped by the convenience store near the light rail stop and bought some eggs (because I had forgotten to get them in the supermarket) and a lychee drink to have for lunch with my sandwiches.

16 July

Went to IGA and bought sliced roast beef, lamb chops, dauphin and brie cheeses, shallots, tomatoes, potatoes, beetroot-and-hummus spread, water crackers, dark chocolate, milk, and toothpaste. On the way home, for lunch I bought two meat pies and a bottle of lychee juice.

22 July

Went to IGA and bought lamb rump steaks, lamb chops, pork sausages, sliced roast pork, sliced ham, dauphin and brie and Jarlsberg cheeses, water crackers, a container of minestrone, capsicum spread, milk, bread, and two sandwiches for lunch (chicken and avocado, and egg and lettuce). On the way home I stopped off at the convenience store near the light rail station and bought some eggs because I had (again) forgotten to get them in the supermarket, and also a bottle of lychee juice to have with the sandwiches.

24 July

Went to IGA and bought canola oil, olive oil, sliced roast pork, sliced ham, a container of chicken laksa soup, and cheddar cheese. Also bought a roast beef sandwich and a tuna salad and lettuce sandwich (for lunch). On the way back home I stopped at the convenience store near the light rail station and bought a bottle of matcha tea to go with them.

28 July

Went to Coles and bought strawberries, a sweet potato, some fresh rosemary, a bag of baby spinach leaves, and bread.

30 July

Went to IGA and bought pork butterfly steaks, lamb rump steaks, barramundi fillets, snapper fillets, milk, tomatoes, potatoes, a container of minestrone, dauphin and brie (blue) cheeses, water crackers, laundry liquid, and toilet paper.

31 July

Went to Coles and bought some large-sized sandwich bags, some stainless-steel scourers, and a couple of sandwiches (for lunch: one chicken schnitzel, and one egg and lettuce).

The reason for using Coles this day instead of the IGA is that I had to go to the pharmacy. The pharmacy was crowded when I went in there to fill a few scripts. A man came in with his 3-year-old sharpei and it seemed as though everyone in the store wanted to pat the dog. A young black woman with dramatic hair was buying some things and asked the pharmacist what she should do for her child, who had a fever. They were down from Newcastle staying at the casino. The pharmacist got her a box of special Panadol off the shelf and told her to kiss the child’s forehead to see if there was a fever. A Chinese woman who was in the store with an older man who might have been her father was filling a script for dermatological ointment. The pharmacist told her that what the doctor had prescribed would not be available until the following day, so he called the GP to find out if he could substitute a different medicine - which he had in-stock and which was a third of the price - for the one prescribed. The GP said it was ok.
