It’s my last night in Auckland and it’s been freezing and raining, so I trudged out to Food Town (a potential Wal-Mart affiliate??) and made myself a Foxcroft classic: tomato soup. I had to settle for toast over grilled cheese.
The soup I picked was interesting one because it was a blend of tomato and red peppers, what the can labeled as capsicum. Once I figured that out, ordering food became a lot easier. The supermarket was slightly overwhelming, but I found familiar Campbell’s and Kraft on the shelves. I even bought bananas from Ecuador and breakfast tea for the morning. Maybe I’ll venture into cheese and unrefrigerated eggs the next time.
And in going with the Kiwi environmental focus, I bought a reusable grocery bag.
