Adventures in Adelaide Supermarkets

The world’s best supermarket is one kilometer from my work. This isn’t hyperbole; the Frewville Foodland has received the International Retailer of the Year Excellence Award at the IGA Conference for two years running, and the local media has interpreted that as ‘world’s best.’ I finally visited last week, and was predictably overwhelmed.

I thought about taking up a deal at one of the local gyms, $50 for a month of hot yoga, but the idea of driving somewhere to exercise when I can run right here, for free…well, it wasn’t convincing. So I needed a new project. One Thursday night, watching back-to-back cooking shows […]
