Cheap Meat from Coles Menu

Risotto Al Pomodoro (Tomato Risotto with Parmesan, Italy) Photographic Print

Yesterday I shopped in Coles at the regional centre as I had no shorts to wear because I have lost weight. I had a black pair that my husband adjusted the buttons on to pull the waist in, so I got three pair in the style I usually wear from BigW in a size smaller. I got a beautiful t-shirt for ten dollars that I am really happy about as it fits with what Trinny and Susannah would want for my sleeves lol.
