My Cup Overflows

Every week, my sister fits in a trip to Fruit and Veg City in the center of Cape Town, and takes me and Noah along. It's one of the highlights of my week.

The view from the grocery store. Not bad, huh?

I should ask Fruit and Veg City for sponsorship. I like them so much.
The view leaving the grocery. Still not bad!
This is a very literal cup overflowing. This is our food for the week. In Boston, eating like this would have been very, very difficult (very expensive and possibly irresponsible), even in summer. I haven't had to buy a can/tin opener yet because the tomatoes at Fruit and Veg city are so affordable. We can pretty much live on the fruits and vegetables from the week, with some occasional carbs (bread, where the flour is plentiful in our freezer, rice, and pasta)
For some reason Eug and Noah had this long modeling session with all the food.

Giant Sweet Potato

Noah carrying as many mangoes as possible.
Noah and the mini-pineapples 
A big bag of bananas for R5. Made a giant banana bread in our roasting pan.
I don't know which way is up.

Between the gift of the weekly trip, Noah getting treated to riding in the trolley/cart with Kim, the food, and the modeling session, I feel very blessed.
