Weekly shopping

I've done my weekly shopping and look very much forward to cooking with these ingredients! Finally I have a can of jackfruit. I'm not sure yet what I will cook with it, but I'm sure it will be tasty. I'll need to look for some inspiration from my fellow bloggers. I can also see other lovely fresh and light summer dishes in my immediate future. All shall be revealed later.

Here is what I bought:

  • Lambs lettuce
  • Quorn escalopes
  • Paccheri Rigati pasta
  • Gooseberries
  • Jackfruit
  • Onions
  • Soya sauce
  • Harlequin squash
  • Nutty muesli
  • Tomatoes
  • Beer
  • Baby spinach
  • Dry yeast
  • Garlic
  • Chilli ketchup
  • Gem squashes
  • Carrots
  • Udon noodles
  • Pineapple juice
  • Fresh peas

Have a good week!

  1. I love you shopping basket. I am not going to waitrose for a while: I was browsing when all of a sudden a shop assistant tap me on my shoulder: miss, your little boy is on his second carrot! Apparently, he just helped him self from the loose carrots,soooo embarrassing for mummy !!

    1. Haha that's quite funny and I'm sure that they are understanding. It can happen. :)

  2. Ah good, you found some Jackfruit, look forward to see what you make with it, but I totally recommend the BBQ Pulled Jackfruit 'Pork', they would be perfect in your homemade bread rolls too! I saw your Gem Squash, I grew some years back - wish I done so again, I do love them.

    1. I was definitely going to have a look at yur jackfruit recipes before deciding what to do. I think you have some really good ones and the bbq recipe sounds great! I can imagine that growing gem squashes is fun, they are quite a nice ingredient to use.

  3. I grew up in the south of India and the thing to make with Jackfruit is "Idichakka Thoran". Shred the jackfruit and cook it with coconut, cumin, garlic and chilli peppers. I have made it with canned jackfruit. I would recommend that you drain,rinse and cook the jackfruit in water before shredding it- makes it really tender.


Thanks for reading! I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions from you.
