In which Cookie holds up the traffic

This shopping list with a couple of puzzlers has been gifted to us by Julie  whose surname has led to her being known by the nickname “Cookie”.

She included these comments about her search and find mission:

Hi Yvonne, here is my latest find.
I was at our local Lowes…a large home improvement chain.
I saw the list in the middle of the parking lot and stopped, bending over to take the picture
while my husband waited in the truck wondering what in the heck I was doing.
The cars wanting to drive through also wondered as they had to wait on me to
take a picture of “something” on the pavement.
I love the child drawing of the cat and dog just as I love the top item
on the list….alcohol–perhaps the turned corner covers Schnapps.
And what is a fried green bean??
I found out for you, Julie (see below). I was more puzzled by the repetition of green beans. Maybe they needed plenty, to make another dish aside from the fried offering.
And, what are pepper kites??

I am pleased to report that I found several recipes for green bean fries. I don’t think I’ll bother making them! https://www.platingsandpairings.com/green-bean-fries/

Thank you for stopping to capture this list for us, Julie.

I felt like I had hit the jackpot!

I spotted this list on the floor of the newly renovated Coles supermarket in Myrtleford, Victoria, Australia. I didn’t hesitate a second to swoop on it.

The item “Listerine Tabs” intrigued me, I didn’t know Listerine came in tablets. When looking online to find out more about this, I found a report on a student’s project, to design travel packs of the tablets. I’d sure buy them!

I have no idea what Tomato-Corri could be, unless it’s 2 separate items, the second being Coriander.

Then, I noticed that the list was written on the back of a receipt from the only other supermarket in town, Foodworks. This shopper seems to be a good recycler! The second photo shows what he/she bought at Foodworks, 4 days earlier.
