What’s in my fridge this week: Waitrose

Today I did something I haven’t done in years, triggered by too much partying and holidaying over the past month. I went and did a…wait for it…huge supermarket shop. Maybe it was because I’m still worn out and recovering from the weekend. Perhaps I was feeling lazy and the lure of a home delivery from Waitrose was far too strong. Besides I needed to stock up on some storecupboard supplies. So off to Morningside I went, armed with a delivery time slot and a very basic list…I came out with this!

Yes that’s right, the world’s longest receipt! That’s my pantry sorted for the foreseeable future, enough dog and cat food to last the wee critters for a long time, staples, fruit, vegetables, dishwasher tablets, laundry supplies and other boring essentials.

I have however decided that this is the week I am going to start menu planning. Stocking up on items I wouldn’t usually get was actually kind of fun, though I’m not sure about the whole supermarket experience!
