We often get posts about ingredients or produce bought, received or otherwise procured by members. So, I thought perhaps we could start a regular thread similar to What did you cook/eat today (May 2018)? but showing or listing ingredients we bought or otherwise obtained. It could be your on-line shopping or a trip to a food market. Or perhaps the produce from your garden or your spoils from a fishing or foraging trip.

It would be interesting to see or hear about the raw ingredients and perhaps know what they cost in our various locations. It could just be your everyday shopping. Its all interesting!

So I will start. Here is what I bought on my little shopping trip today to the local Asian mini market:

Clockwise from the top: Mr Naga pickle (super hot!), glass noodles, kerala (bitter gourd), black pepper papadums, curry leaves, limes, Scotch Bonnet chillies, green mangoes.

Self evident - the sesame seeds are for The CookingBites Recipe Challenge: Sesame Seeds

Here is what all the above cost. Good value by your countries prices - or maybe not?
Cost = £16.34 or $22.21 American dollars, $29.55 Australian dollars or €18.55

I like this. But, if this is to be a feature, we should set up some rules. For instance, what you showed was interesting because the ingredients are intriguing. I started listing "what I bought yesterday", and I realized that a lot of it is was just a grocery list of common ingredients. This is what I started before realizing that:

blueberries
blackberries
oranges
bananas
All Purpose flour
serrano peppers
spinach
brussels sprouts
bacon
cheddar cheese

Nice ingredients. All the makings of a fruity pancake (or fruit salad), add some eggs and a pretty awesome omelette.

I know - but I wasn't sure if people will participate so don't want to set up too many rules yet. I wasn't suggesting members should list everything they bought, received, foraged, caught or harvested. Although I confess to be fascinated by other folk's shopping lists, however mundane.

Today the only thing I obtained was a pack of Aldi frozen oven chips. Now that is mundane. Do you have frozen oven chips in the USA? I expect you do - that is probably why we have them here!

On Thirstday my wife went to the slightly upmarket supermarket for potatoes, sourdough rolls and parsley and came back with this:

TOPS BILL 030518.jpg


Admittedly the outlet has been suffering lately from major roadworks outside both of its entrances/exits so is not tending to restock perishables at the present time.

Today's bill (from the not so upmarket supermarket).

I am struggling to get to grips with the point of this thread. However......
There is no point any more than there is a point to the what did you eat today thread. Its just that members accasionally post in general chat or miscellaneous about something they bought or were given, caught, foraged etc and I thought maybe it would give such posts a home. Its also interesting (to me at any rate) to see prices around the world. Your bills look really expensive but that is only because of the high numbers in the prices. I'm sure they are actually really cheap.

Jacob's Ladders (short ribs of beef) for tomorrow's lunch. These will be brined overnight and cooked low and slow (6 hours plus) in red wine, beef stock along with some veg.
