Supermarket shop for May 22 for Croydon Castle

Supermarket aisles from a shopping trolley's point of view

Well, this month’s shop was a bit more expensive than usual as I had to replace a few things like Worcestershire sauce which is quite expensive but lasts months.

I hope that I have ordered enough that I might be able to get away with not doing a supermarket shop for June at all. We shall see how it goes but that would be a real result, giving our little commune an extra £40-50 to spend.

As usual, SP stands for ASDA’s Smart Price range. Enormous thanks to Jack Monroe for the work that resulted in this ever increasing range of products.

I try to inject some variety into our meals so, although many of the same ingredients get ordered each month, they are often used in different ways.

So, without further ado, here is this month’s shop:
