Another Shopping Experience at Quest


Ever the delightful surprise when I do my volunteer voucher-shopping at Quest, last week I was able to pick out the following: a round of fresh Italian focaccia bread (can't wait to have it for dinner with a balsamic vinegar and olive oil dip); 2 generously-sized mangoes; 2 lovely celery bunches; seaweed ramen noodles; a bag each of chicken skewers and barbeque chicken wings; a Polish sausage roll; a bottle of ketchup; sour cream and onion rice chips as well as cheese pizza chips; cheddar cheese snack crackers; a carton of beef broth; and because breakfast hadn't quite filled me up, a passionfruit soda and a bag of apple-cream danishes for lunch.

When I did my shopping earlier in the week (I volunteer twice a week), items such as green peppers, carrots, bok choy, and bananas filled my shopping bag and provided me with a number of healthy lunches and dinners. Although I ended up with fewer produce items today, I feel there's absolutely no reason I can't enjoy a nice and nutritious dinner of chicken and whole wheat pasta (which I always have on hand) with focaccia bread to start. Yum.
