International Shopping, right here at Sobeys

I zipped to the grocery store yesterday to pick up some stuff to do some baking and I was tempted by the yummy looking fruit and veggies that make me think of summer. When I think of summer and warmth I think of Paula right now, on her warm sandy beach in Mexico. Then when I reached to pick a few very beautiful tomatoes, I read the label and voila... they were from Mexico.

When I unpacked my grocery bag when I got home I had quite the international fair.
Black Grapes from Chili, Lemons from Florida, Pears and Strawberries from Florida too, and Cantolope from Guatamala. Local fair.... An English Cuke from Den Hanns.. just 10 km down the road!
In the pic you can see my shopping bag. Its a reusable grocery bag from "ENVIROSAX" and I bought it at Christmas as well as a few extras for some friends. They roll up quite small and fit nicely in the corner of your purse. I use mine every day, and I will buy at least one more the next time I get to go into the city and am near the kitchen store that stocks them.

Donna, I will email you some pics of our Mexican veggie and fruit delivery! Funny, I always think of you when I buy my veggies. I'm lucky to have one of those bags! :o)
