That clinches it !

It's been a beautiful day today and I've been like a wet rag all day. So glad that the week builds up slowly to it's crazy weekend crescendo !

Anyway, some folks were talking about supermarkets at church recently and which is dearer and which is cheaper. Our Géant Casino came in for some criticism. We know that Auchan is supposed to be cheaper but there's no Auchan near us - we'd have to drive half-way round Bordeaux to get to one. Carrefour is more expensive. The other recommended one was Leclerc, and there's one of those in Pessac. So last week Patricia and I went to investigate.

Well frankly, it was very disappointing. The fruit and veg were very expensive - or at least there was no cheapie option like we get in our usual supermarket. And Pat searched everywhere and found no pork chops. How is it possible not to have pork chops ?

So this week back to Géant Casino. Oranges 2 Kilos for 3 €. Apples (Ariane) 1€ per kilo.

But the clincher : Seriously Strong Cheddar Cheese - at the same kind of price as Mimolette.

We haven't eaten a nice strong Cheddar in MONTHS !
