Hi Britmum..............just being nosey, but why do you go over to the US to buy your food?
Also, looking at everyones lists, they are all very similar food items lol !
I live close to the US border. I don't go every week to the US to buy my food lol.
We do a shop there about once a month, mainly to stock up on foods you can't get in Canada and to pop to places like Trader Joes and Whole Foods which I love.
I'm so jealous Trader Joes and Wholefoods are my idea of heaven. Lol. Also jealous of your low syn chocolate pretzels.
