I thought I'd post some food prices from over here in Australia to get a comparison with yours.
Carrots 1 kg 98cents
Pink Lady Apples $5.48 kg
Mandarin $3.38 kg
One dozen eggs size 700 gm pack $3.99
Macleans Toothpaste 170gms $2.19--not a food item although the kids do seem to 'eat it' lol...
Cherry Tomatoes 250 gms $2.98
Almonds 750 gms $11.98
White sugar 3kgs $3.99
Chicken breasts no skin Large $5 each
Also Food wise a quick recipe
1 and 3/4 cups of diced apple raw and peeled (or not)
1 cup raw sugar
125 gms butter melted
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1/2 cup sultanas
(Note DH can't have spices so just to let you know it tastes just as good without if you want to leave them out)
Sprinkle the sugar over the diced apples, add the melted butter and egg, stir together. Then add sifted dry ingredients, stir well.
Press into Slice/ sheet tin and bake 40 mins 180 deg oven (depending on oven). It will rise up.
When cool sprinkle with icing sugar and cut. I make it 111 calories if there are 12 pieces and 23 gms Carbs.
I freeze it and it comes out great.
Hope you like it.
Let me know some of your food prices as I'm sure they are so much cheaper than ours.
