A look at food budgets around the globe

The Slow Cook recently wrote about this interesting look at weekly food purchases around the world. The photo series was originally published in a book by Peter Menzel, The Hungry Planet. It was really interesting to look at what folks purchased and spent on food. It was astonishing to see the amount of processed and fast food (how depressing to see Tony the Tiger in Italy!) and sobering to see what the family in the refugee camp in Chad survives upon. I'm counting my many blessings right now.

Ali, I know I count mine! I don't know what you and Dan pay for milk,But in South Carolina where we found a house, it's almost $6.00 for a gallon of milk! Gas is lower by about $.50 though. Hope to see you and Dan soon.
Love jean and Buddy
