Food Baskets

Well I won't be trying out food baskets this month after all.

The baskets are supposed to be picked up on Thursdays and when they had not cashed my cheque by earlier this week, I called to ask what was happening and they had no record of me signing up and no record of my payment. After search for my cheque for some time, she called me back to say she found my envelope stuck inside her desk drawer.

I have not decided if I will get a food basket in February. I think I will most likely just continue to buy meat in bulk at Costco, where it is inexpensive, and buy produce at my really inexpensive neighbourhood produce market and the Asian grocery store. The price difference of bok choy at Safeway and at my Asian grocer is staggering!
