Hello!

I want to write a shopping list but I don't know how.

"I would like to buy 2...........

"I would like to buy 1

If you're writing a shopping list, you wouldn't write "I would like to buy ..." at all. A shopping list looks like this:

2 loaves of bread
1 bunch of parsley
6 eggs
Pint of milk
2 bars of chocolate
Muesli

I wonder what lunch would look like, but there's enough gin not to worry too much.
