Not understanding Arrays and Hash as much as i'd like stuck on challenge task

I'm really having difficulty with this one, If anyone can find what i am doing wrong and explain how to do it correctly, it would be much appreciated.

shopping_list.rb
grocery_list = { 'title' => 'Grocery List', 'items' => [] }
grocery_item = { 'title' => 'Bread', 'quantity' => 1 }

This is what theyre looking for:

grocery_list['items'].push(grocery_item)

You need an array so you have to use the [ ] and also use push to add array
