It’s Saturday shop time. Are you getting in your car to drive to a monster shopping centre, maybe across the border hoping you don’t get caught?
We are about to do our fresh food shop – our main one for the week. We will be walking along the lake to the Rive market, it’s a glorious day. We won’t be in a rush, we’ll check everything out first before committing.
First we kicked off with some porridge. All the ingredients are bio: the whole oats, the cream, the banana, the milk. Sprinkled or strewn on top when eating is sticky brown sugar from England. I have no idea how to buy it in Switzerland and other sugar just doesn’t do the job. I keep hoping that we can stick to some bio ingredients without breaking our budget.
