This morning we did some grocery shopping - which is always a hoot with my two in tow! They help with choosing the fruit and vegetables and putting it into the trolley. I now give my son a "list" of things that he has to get at the shops and today he choose to have 8 items (my son has a bit of a thing with numbers - so today it was the number 8). I tend to put things on his list that...
a) he can reach
b) interest him, ie, his favourite foods like sultana's, muesli bars, yoghurt etc
c) spread through the store so the game lasts the whole trip.
My daughter sits happily in the trolley and somehow we started a ritual that they could have a slice of wholemeal bread from one of the loaves that I buy. I really can't believe that they still request it as soon as it goes into the trolley, but I'm not complaining as they merrily chomp on their plain piece of bread whilst I zoom past the confectionary isle. ;-))
I'm cooking a beef steak salad tonight and couldn't resist some scrumptious root vegetables to go with it. I am not a fan of tin beetroot, but these beets look so yummy! Some of our other trolley favourites are "triangle cheese" for my daughter and tonic water is really the only soft drink we have, the kids like it and I don't feel guilty letting them have a little bit. Today I also bought some dill cucumbers which I haven't had for ages, but love them and ate some straight from the jar when I got home!
Lou if you would like to join in!
