Due to a 1/2 price special at Coles this week I've been steadily constructing a nappy mountain in Jett's bedroom. It looks like a LOT of nappies, but I know, there will come a day when we use the LAST one and we'll need to buy more.. Actually I don't want to devote too much time thinking about that as it's clear that there's still a lot of nappy changing ahead of us! (Zali is out of daytime nappies now in case anyone was wondering).
In other supermarket news I feel it's my duty to make you aware of the Woolworths/Safeway HomeBrand cocoa. I buy a LOT of cocoa for my cakes and it is one of the more expensive ingredients (I'd use almost a whole 250g box on 1 order) and I used to sort of cover my bases by mix ing Cadburys cocoa with the Coles Indonesian imported cheapo brand. But now I've discovered the Woolworths one and it's really really good. I recon it's better quality than Cadburys, and made in Germany interestingly enough. If you line them all up, the Indonesian import (Coles) is really light coloured, the Cadburys one is a bit darker, and this Woolies one is dark and fantastic (AND cheap!). I haven't tried the really expensive brands (for obvious reasons ) but one day I'll buy some and compare the two and let you know (or if anyone is feeling experimental and wants to let ME know that would be even better - cos I've got to keep my eye on the bottom line of course!) And actually speaking of bottom lines, see above..
