Until now I thought the world food shortage would have little impact on the typical ex-pat here in Dili. That’s until I re-stocked the Mrs.Macs pie supplies at lunchtime. Good grief, US$3-75 for a frozen pie. This is certainly crisis material.
At last look, an Asian sourced 3-minute noodles was still 15 cents if you looked hard enough. That’s 25 packets of noodles per pie. Anyone for an eat-off – I’ll take the pie, you take the 25 packets of noodles. I’ll even share the sauce.
