Inflation in the Kitchen!
Not only are the supermarket shelves in Zimbabwe empty but the costs change from hour to hour. I thought this picture would be of interest - it displays two till slips and shows, how, in a matter of days (09 to 13 June 2008)we went from thousands of dollars to millions of dollars!
Cooking here is very difficult with constant power cuts (usually when one has a loaf of bread baking), lack of ingredients (many people have to import everything from milk and butter to flour and frozen vegetables) and cost of anything on can find during a foraging trip to the shops!
