The Shopping List Compendium:
a collection of abandoned shopping and grocery lists




187 - Simple Pasta

Warm some oil in a pan, while chopping the onion and red pepper. Fry onion and pepper while bringing a pan of water to the boil. Put pasta into the boiling water. Grill the asparagus. Cook pasta until al dente, drain and mix with onion and pepper. Garnish with asparagus. Have a yoghurt for dessert.

This site is made possible by the kind people who abandon their shopping list at the end of a trip to the supermarket. I collect those shopping lists. You might refer to these as grocery lists, which strikes me as a bit strange because not all the items on the lists are groceries. Anyhow, I won't worry myself about it if you won't.

For those of you who have asked why I do this, please just be content with the fact that I do. I saw a list lying abandoned in a trolley once, and thought, "I'll have that". So I did.

Each shopping list I find is added to my collection along with comments about each list, which usually consist of me spouting on about the possible personality of the person who wrote it. I'm quite harsh at times, at others I feel a pang of compassion. Sometimes I just don't know what items are. Hopefully it will aid your procrastination.
