Today at the grocery store, I almost got charged $65 on what was supposed to cost $40! I happened to be watching the cashier ring in the items – which I don’t normally do – and I see “Chocolate milk $25” come up on the register, even though she was weighing peppers and I didn’t even have chocolate milk in my basket! (And I have no idea why chocolate milk would ever cost $25?) She got flustered and realized her mistake and reversed it. However, before I left, I made sure to double check my receipt. She double charged me for grapes during her moment of confusion! Of course I was able to get it corrected before leaving. Lesson learned – make sure you check your receipt when you go grocery shopping!
Another reason I like self-checkout (though I wasn’t in Superstore today, which has the option of self-checkout). Sweden’s system of self-check is a bit different and I didn’t dare try it in case I made a foreigner blunder.
Otherwise, I’m keeping pretty busy with art classes, like I said.
Because I don’t have much time to prepare meals during the first half the week, Sundays are spent cooking up a storm. I’ve picked up a Company’s Coming Healthy in a Hurry cookbook, which I’m extremely impressed with! Every meal has been a winner – tasty, and best of all, easy and quick to make.
Corn and Cod (actually Basa) Tacos
Sweet and Sour Chicken (made without ketchup!)
On Sundays I also make lots of food, and make something for the freezer, for those inevitable busy nights when I don’t have time to cook – much healthier and easier on my wallet. I’ve also made a “resolution” of sorts to eat two vegetarian meals per week to try to reduce my footprint on the planet.

And some art stuff.
