I'm somewhat culinarilly-challenged, so I have only bought spices when a recipe calls for them. And apparently, I don't check before I put them on my shopping list, because I discovered:
- two jars of bay leaves
- chili, chili, chili in the form of powder and various celebrity mixes
- three jars of dill weed. I guess I need to make pickles.
- four jars of nutmeg, one of them "whole," which I must have got while thinking "what would Martha do"
- two large jars of parsley flakes (one from 2004)
It was a small thing, but very satisfying. And the best part was I got points from DH. I didn't even think he'd notice! But he actually uses spices, so I guess it made a difference. Now I'm inspired to tackle the two utensils drawers, that are stuffed with stuff I inherited from my Granpa eight years ago.
What's in your wallet?
