Have just made a batch of the Anzac bisuits and they are lovely. Won't last long in our house!
My grocery shopping bill in the UK is £100-110 per week which sounds very similar to all of you in Adelaide. We've also had to really tighten our belts. I usually cook from scratch and don't buy ready meals or sauces. I think the cost of food and bills in general is going up on both sides of the world.
Our average food bill is around $175 a week - I shop at foodland which in my opinion is much cheaper than all the other supermarkets.
Always buy their own black and gold label - which is excellent value and good quality.
Buy my bread from the chinese bakery - $1.50 a loaf
Get my meat from the butchers - which is better value and quality.
Getr my booze from whoever is doing a special at the time!

the multibuys are now on quite a lot of things each week - in this weeks shopping fruit juice, pasta ... cant remember any more but there were quite a few in store.
It was a couple of months ago that the coles advertising leaflet started saying 'a new way to shop' and then listing the multibuys ... made me laugh that this was the 'new thing' - for goodness sake how long have they been doing these things in the uk?!!!

Quorn has not hit here yet in supermarkets, have been told there is a health food shop in glenelg that sells it but have not been looking. Sanatarium do a veggie range, hotdogs are good, veggie meat really grim. Also another range in freezer that do good veggie burgers and schnitzels but do not use them alot as can get a bit dull but a good standby. Planet organic do dries soya mince which is ok. Loads of veggies and fruit tho so am coping fine. Eating out not great alot of places though.
